I hope they release a free demo of it. When I access the icon at the store it says something about nothing in my account so I assume that's just for purchasing it.

There is a demo, but it doesnt have online. Which is what I'll be buying it for. 4 player mp racing with people on your buddy list. :)

Is the demo at the PSN store? If so, I still don't think it's showing up for me.

weird, I downloaded it last night.

Dang, well maybe it'll show up soon for the rest of us.

Try now. I just tried it again and it's there now. 121 Meg.

Edit: Wow, this game is actually a lot of fun. I didn't initially think it was going to be all that fun but by the 3rd level I was really liking it. I was in a dune buggy type vehicle and it was great. I'd miss some of the off-road places but it would still be able to drive right up the side of it. By the end I was using the nitrous and almost flying from each off road area. Pretty cool. :)

Yea I got it on the store now. I tried some of the demo and liked it. The game, while simple, looks very clean and crisp in HD.

On another note, my stupid HDMI cable didn't come in today. UPS sent it to the wrong facility or some crap, so I'm guessing Monday it'll be here.

Gameplay reminds me of super monkey ball with cars. I kinda like it. The races are a lot of fun.
