December 15, 2006 - Today Evolution Studios announced that its next-gen racing game http://ps3.ign.com/objects/748/748488.html is the best-selling PlayStation 3 game in Japan.

"It's a real coup for Evolution," says Martin Kenwright, CEO, Evolution Studios. "Developing MotorStorm has certainly not been easy -- but the team here really delivered. Evolution has a reputation for delivering high quality racing titles, but we really needed to up the ante with Sony's new hardware. We're delighted that the public has agreed with the press, and made MotorStorm the current Japanese number one PlayStation 3 title. We can't wait to see how it performs throughout the rest of the world."

Kenwright recently http://ps3.ign.com/articles/750/750318p1.html that his studio is already looking ahead to the PlayStation 4. For the time being, though, MotorStorm is out now in Japan, and will see a North American and Europe release next spring.
