Ridge Racer DLC Sucks. Namco Ready To Rip You Off.

Thought it was stupid and awful that Namco Bandai was releasing Ridge Racer with only three tracks? Wait until you hear what the DLC is.

There's free weekly DLC planned -- but it's music from previously released Ridge Racer games.

According to Japanese game magazine Famitsu, in February 2012, Namco will release a "Ridge Racer Pass", which is a collection of all the DLC released between February and May. It will cost ¥1600 ($21) but those who purchase it by February 29, can get it for ¥1000 ($13).

The breakdown of DLC is ¥250 ($3.20) for one car and ¥400 ($5.10) for one track. More cars will become available in March, April and May, as well as more free music packs. As previously mentioned, Ridge Racer owners can buy them as a bundle or individually.

If you want a Ridge Racer music melody or a new song, that will cost you: ¥100 ($1.30) each, actually.

Oh, did I mention that the game runs at 30 frames per second? The game runs at 30 frames per second.

On the scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the my desirable, my interest in owning this game is negative 50.

    30fps as if it matters.

      As if it doesn't for a high speed racer that by all regards was capable of a smooth 60 fps until now.

    LOL, no thanks guys

    wow...are they going to do anything right with this game??
    seriously, how are such bad choices like this still being made?

    Eh. If/when I get a Vita, I'll give this one a miss anyway. I can barely take Ridge Racer seriously any more thanks to Sony's 2006 E3 presentation.
