    Thinking about getting this game, which format is the best?

    The DS version offers analogue control through the touch screen, but the psp has the analogue stick.

    Has anyone played both versions? What do they think?

    The DS version is a port of the Original N64 Ridge Racer with small update, PSP version is a completely new game.

    PSP version

    Also remember that the N64 Ridge was very poor!

    Do you guys think that bad ports will crop up a lot for the DS?? Or is it just as likely on the PSP??

    Just as likely, PSP a much improved PS1, DS and improved N64 so there will be ports but looking at the release lists there are very few in development

    the graphics on ds are a bit shocking TBH. Played the metroid demo on my ds last night, it isn't quite as good graphics as an n64, doesnt use the texture filter like the n64 did, so that is probably why.

    the FMV at the start of the level looks almost like the gamecube, and i thought it might be gamecube graphics, but sorely let down.

    IF they can get the technology into a psp which is smaller and has a bigger screen, why can't they get at least dreamcast graphics into the ds?

    also the ds is a bit disappointing as all the space wasted in a gba port could have been used to put some extra ooomph into it.

    Or at least a cover for the gba port, as it is a gaping hole that attracts dirt and dust, they should have a plug for it, like most mobile phones do for their ports.

    Play Mario on the 64 then play it on ds, it is much better on the ds, only problem with the ds is the resolution it uses.

    As for psp, ps2 graphics my arse, impressive yes but its nothing like ps2 graphics. its PS1 graphics with better textures and (missing from psone) texture correction.

    No point comparing the Ridge games, IMO. The PSP one is far better - it's basically a compilation of Ridge games and the DS one is a port of the really bad N64 version

    But when you look at the specs, it has a 333mhz processor, the ps1 was about 60mhz adn it has 32mb of ram.

    Also I've heard that gt4 mobile will be an almost exact port of the ps2 version. So how can that be if it is just a ps1?

    I think you read my post wrong mate, I said the PSP was a much improved PSone, it is clearly much more powerful then the DS but I dont think its a poweful as all the hype made it out to be, sorry for the confusion.

    this image shows a clear improvement the PSP ha over the PSX but is it PS2 quality?

    I haven't received my psp yet, have you got a psp?

    The videos i've seen of psp running games IMO looks better than ps2 graphics.

    I would say the PSP is certainly above the PSOne in terms of GFX etc. It perhaps isn't up the the PS2 yet in terms of quality but its a brand new system - imagine what they will be sqeezing out of Sony's wonder box on 2nd and 3rd gen games :eek: It seems Sony have a method of creating games machines that allow programing to evolve over time. Sheeesh, think of the PSOne's early games then try to imagine that old grey box playing GT!!!

    I will hold my hands up and admit I haven't played on a DS, but it looks to me very much N64 quality :mad: - but it makes up for it with innovative control :lesson:

    Ridge certainly looks better on PSP, can not comment if it plays better, as I haven't played either of them - waiting for GT4 on PSP :cool:

    Watch this space - PSP will blow your mind, and may even superceed PS2! The specs may not be the same, but you don't need as much power for the small screen and its is supposed to be easier (more PSOne like) to program!!!

    RR DS has gotten around 6/10 in every review I've seen, the PSP version is around the 8/10 area. Whatever, the PSP version is the most addictive arcade racer I've played since Burnout 2, (can't force myself to like Burnout 3). Looks amzing, tunes are great. 8 player via wifi and multi-player online via tunneling. Proper analogue control via nub. Took me a few hours to get used to using it and holding the PSP comfortably, but now have I haven't used the d-pad since. Buy it on PSP. :clap:

    RR PSP 8.3 on Gamespot (click heer for review, videos etc).

    RR DS 6.6 on amespot (review etc...)

    cant say bout DS, dont have one but the PSP version i thought was pretty darn smart, lovely sun glare effects too.

    but will say on GFX side, this is first gen software on a new console and its very impressive give it a year or two and imagine what it will be like.

    Go load on of the early ps2 games and compare it to a game out now, miles apart :D

    Future looks very bright indeed.

    My point exactly!

    The PSP has a long way to go, first gen look good (think Sony PS 1.75), second gen will look great, third gen will be mind blowing! My only concern is that as they sqeeze more out of the processor battery life will decline - I guess better batteries will be next :)

    This isnt correct having owned a PS2 and PS1 and currently own a PSP I can say with all honesty the PSP graphics are at least as good as the PS 2 if not better.

    Ps1 come on please......Have a look at TWisted Metal Head On and tell me thats PS1 graphics. I dont think people actually realise how dated the N64 and PS1 look now in comparison to the 128bit systems (Which the PSP is incidentally)

    The PSP graphics are at least as good as PS2 graphics. Wipeout Pure looks better than Wipeout Fusion, GT4 will be on a graphical par with the PS2 version and when you consider that the PSP is a new machine that's some feat!

    The PS1 graphics are no where near as good as PSP graphics - The PS1 isn't even comparable to the PSP. You say that the PSP graphics are like improved PS1 graphics - well maybe as long as you improve them to PS2 standards.

    The DS version of RR looks laughable where as the PSP version looks stunning!

    playing super mario ds last night, the graphics are quite good when you get used to them. The only gripe I have is there doesn't seem to be a good control method. Yoshi is impossible to control with the touch screen.

    quite cool though, and the metroid demo is growing on me, it isn't out until august though I'm told :eek:

    Have you set the controls to touch mode? its much easier as the x & y buttons spin the camera, also I hope you are using your left thumb like you would an analog stick.

    Dont worry its second nature after a while

    you mean use the touch pad stylus in my left hand?

    Tried that, can't seem to get used to it. I will try to persevere, just seems very difficult, and it shouldn't be should it really. Mind you the n64 controller was even worse, analogue stick in the middle, what the hell was that all about? :eek:

    I love all the mini games in the rec room :thumbsup:

    Yeah you will got used to it, it is a similar learning process to that of an analog thumb stick, give it half hour to an hour and you will be legging it around easily, I now love the touchcreen control just as much as analog.

    shouldnt we have seperate thread for this?
