Release Date and Price
Here's a weird case of potential exclusivity. Outrun Online Arcade -- previously announced for Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network -- will not be coming to the PlayStation 3 ... in North America.
Sega has confirmed with CVG that the game will be skipping its stop on North American PSN when it becomes available later this year. If you only own a PS3 in the US and want to play Outrun Online Arcade, you might want to consider picking up an Xbox 360. Or, create a European account -- the game will be available on both XBLA and PSN across Europe.
Regardless of the reasons (Sega declined to comment on specifics), North American PS3 fans of arcade racers should shed tears.

[Edit: Seems I was being a bit retarded when I first read the press release. Updated post to clarify the correct release dates]
Sega Europe has confirmed the pricing and release date for the highly anticipated (well by us at least) OutRun Online Arcade. They have confirmed the release date to be April 16th on PSN and April 15th on XBLA. Both versions should be priced at £7.99/ 9.99Euros.
Anyway the more exciting OutRun news is that Sega Europe has also quasi-announced that there will be a great OutRun contest when the game is launched. They are yet to announce the full details but have told us what the prize is and it sounds amazing.
[ Update: Sega America confirmed it will cost 800 points and come out on April 15th. Mentions nothing about the PSN version, that seems to be Europe only as of now.]
