DiRT Races to PS3 in September

Recently released on the PC and Xbox 360 (review coming soon), Codemasters’ superb off-road rally racing game DiRT has also been in development for the PS3, but up until now it hasn’t been known when it would finally be coming out. An exact release date still hasn’t been given, but Codemasters has revealed today that the PS3 version will debut sometime this September, with additional features as well including support for force feedback steering wheels (even some PS2 models) and an exclusive advanced audio system in which one 3.2 GHz SPU vector co-processor is dedicated specifically to audio to deliver top-spec 7.1 and 5.1 surround sound.

Accompanying the PS3 announcement, Codemasters has also released the following new DiRT video featuring a brief overview of the game’s incredible Neon damage modeling system with Producer Alex Grimbley and a batch of eight new screenies from the PS3 version.
