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.
