[edit] Release

The game was met with anticipation as too whether or not Sony could pull off such a remarkable feat. Being released so close to Christmas meant that sales were restricted until after Christmas day which then saw a boom in sales which by the end of the April saw it sell over 10 million copies.

[edit] Features

The game was one of the first two offer two game modes, Arcade and Simulation. The difference between the two being that in Arcade damage is accumulated to the car up to the point where it breaks down. Simulation is where you compete for trophies against the AI or for experience points.
