Sony's PlayStation Network is up and running at full steam, and with it more and more games and demos are becoming available for download. PlayStation 3 owners have already been able to snag the likes of Blast Factor, Lemmings, Go! Sudoku and more from the PlayStation Store to quench their gaming hunger in-between the major in-store releases, and plenty more titles on their way.

Right around the turn of the year, either late this month or early January, Sony Online Entertainment will bring its high octane racer GripShift to the system via the PlayStation Store for $9.99. For those who aren't familiar with the original PSP release, the racer mixes stunt driving with puzzle elements and even some platforming while you race around over undulating suspended tracks. Tracks feature multiple routes, shortcuts, loops, jumps, ramps and such aimed to keep you on your toes.

looks like it could be alot of fun with online multiplayer and lots of players, but it doesnt look anything too special.. mind you.. for $10 you arent going to expect GT5

For 10$ I think I'll have to give this a download to feel in the 1 title I'll own come January. Then again I'll still be playing ps2 rpg's.

No, they might have the same detail but theyd still be in blurry SDTV.

For a downloadable $10 game this looks fine.
Waah waah waah. Sony fans are such babies. You go jerk off to your super awesome HDMI cables and I'll be having fun playing Wii and fanning myself with all the money I didn't spend.

Well, it doesn't look like anything special if you're expecting it to be a racer. $10 is an absolute bargain if you approach Gripshift as a hybrid platformer/puzzle game.

Waah waah waah. Nintendo fans are such babies. You go jerk off to your super awesome composite cables and I'll be having fun playing Atari 2600 and fanning myself with all the money I didn't spend.

wtf, seriously?

$10 bucks. That's pretty good. I thought "you gotta be kidding about the visuals" when I saw them but hey $10... and it looks better than unexciting truck

125 new and re-mixed levels spanning over 25 race tracks

People are seriously underestimating the value of the Playstation network and it's original downloadable games at this point.

There is a single word that seperates Sony from Nintendo and Mircosoft at this moment in time when it comes to their downloadable games. Ambition.

Having a game like Gripshift, which, from those screenshots looks like a they have put some effort in to make this game something more than a mere PSP port, for only ten dollars is great for not only current PS3 owners but potential PS3 owners as well.

Sony seem to have real amibition this upcoming gen with their online games plan, and that, over time is really going to shine to those sitting on the fence.

I''d sooner pay ten dollars for this than five dollars for a NES game on VC. But then, that's just me......

The stuff missing from the PSP version seems to be the "minigames" like soccer/hockey and other games....and most importantly, the track editor. But for $10, there's no way I can complain. 125 new and remixed tracks is plenty and online multiplayer is a great bonus



And for anyone who hasn't played this game before, think Super Monkey Ball but with a car. It's great fun
