MotorStorm: Arctic Edge Roars Into North American Stores
It'll be one of the first PSP Go titles you should definitely consider adding to your new collection, or you can always pick it up on UMD for the old PSP.
Sony has announced that MotorStorm: Arctic Edge is now available in North America; it's the third title in the critically acclaimed off-road racing franchise and the first to go portable (the first two entries were for the PS3). Just about everything we've seen of this game has been impressive from a handheld standpoint, and bear in mind that both MotorStorm installments to date have been excellent. SCEA vice-president of product marketing, Scott Steinberg, said Arctic Edge "takes full advantage of PSP functionality by bringing exciting features such as eight-player online and ad-hoc modes, photo mode, and the ability to create a custom music playlist to suit your driving mood." Oh, and let's not forget about the relevant stats and features:
- 12 new unique and reversible tracks
- 8-player wireless ad-hoc multiplayer, and infrastructure multiplayer
- 6 vehicle classes from the original MotorStorm
- 2 new snow-specific vehicle classes (Snowcat, and Snow Machine)
- Customizable liveries
- 20 licensed music tracks, and more
- Custom soundtracks (music can be added via memory stick)
- Good old MotorStorm AI
This is only one of several promising PSP titles slated for the all-important fourth quarter; others include LittleBigPlanet PSP and Gran Turismo PSP, and looking down the road, there's the guaranteed gem, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. But for now, it's always good to have a quality racing game when a new machine releases; it's almost a requirement.
