GripShift Getting Re-Mixed for PS3

Originally released on the PSP last year, GripShift is an incredibly unique hybrid game that combines platforming, racing, puzzle-solving and high-flying stunt driving into one clever experience, and although it never caught a lot of mainstream media buzz or appreciation I have found it to be one of the more entertaining PSP titles to come out thus far. For another shot at stardom, SOE is bringing GripShift back once again, but this time onto the PS3 as a downloadable title via the PlayStation Network service.

This PS3 GripShift isn’t a completely new game though, but more of an improved re-mix featuring many notable upgrades, including revamped HD graphics technology rendered in 720p at 60fps, improved vehicle handling and controls, over 125 new and re-mixed levels, 25 race tracks, an enhanced soundtrack and four player online play. Best of all, this re-mixed GripShift will be available at the low price of $9.99. If you actually have a PS3 right now, watch for GripShift to become available for download sometime later this month or early in January.
