I bought this game last week before the price drop is it possible to go back to GameStop and get back the difference between the price drop and the price i bought it for.

DO NOT BUY THIS FOR THE PSP!! They don’t even release DLC for the PSP version, and the you are VERY limited in what you can create. I fell for the hype and purchased it when it was first released, biggest mistake of my life, and to be honest it’s not even worth $19.99. Purchase Wipeout Pulse it you want a good PSP racer, sure the online community is dead, but the single player is really fun and you can listen to your own music in game. Party all day my foot.

The most prevalent thing I want in a patch/DLC is being able to put accessories like Dynamite, Grass, etc on parts of my mod other than the head. Or at least get a good reason why this is.

Hi Chuck! Its me coolasia! Long time no see! This game has made great accomplishments. I guess we won’t have to worry about that time machine right!?

I got an idea.

So you got all these mascots, you should make DCL tracks based around them. So when you play these tracks, the computer ai racers will be just mascots. Drake, sackboy, kratos, and SweetTooth. You still need some KZ DLC among others to make this course work.

    That is something to look into!

Guess it wasn’t doing that well. Honestly it is a really good game regardless of the long load times (that the patch didn’t fix much). I recommend this game to everyone at $40. The track editor is just amazing… I always wish it had an online mode sorta like Mario Kart has with vs. modes for just blowing each other up in arenas too.

the patch is good for me… 8-12 secs for loading is not much time though…


+ EdgarFriendly on September 28th, 2010 at 4:38 pm said:

Will there be a patch for the PSP version? The track editor keeps suggesting that I cross tracks (the auto-complete feature) but never lets me do it. Also, when playing online I can only use a few of my own mods. Most just give an error if I try to use them.

released a patch for the psp version that let us talk and join our friends on the same room please , love the game on both systems , PS3 and PSP GO

Are you guys going to fix the load time issues? The game still takes a long time to load, and then gets slow or laggy from time to time.

i was still on the fence on buying this game as well, i loved the exclusive beta :)


+ moriarty1975 on September 28th, 2010 at 5:39 pm said:

Sorry Chuck but your reply to comment #81 doesnt make any sense as the Mod/Kart DLC was completed BEFORE the game was released.

    When pre-release DLC is sold on the store, it’s usually months after launch so pre-order consumers can enjoy a healthy window of exclusivity. Once they do go out, we space out releases so we can avoid huge gaps (3-4 weeks without dlc) in our schedule.

I love this game but you need to make an update that REALLY improves loading times, I can’t notice any difference, the initial load is pretty long and I don’t understand why since modspot isn’t loaded anymore. On IGN comparisons there where some times even longer, I don’t really know but to me they just feel the same.

Also, I got dropped A LOT yesterday when trying to download mods and tracks. Please improve this awesome game
