Namco Bandai today announced a new downloadable free-to-play title based on the smash Ridge Racer franchise, Ridge Racer Driftopia. The game is slated for release later in 2013 for PlayStation 3 and PC, and looks similar to Ridge Racer Unbounded.
Olivier Comte, Senior Vice President, Namco Bandai Games Europe said:
“At NAMCO BANDAI Games we are committed to embracing new business models alongside the still vital traditional retail sector. Free-to-play is playing an increasingly important role, so it’s very exciting to be bringing one of our most successful franchises to the free-to-play space for everyone to enjoy.”

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
