To quote: What with the release of DiRT Showdown on PS3 inching ever closer, we turned to twitter to find out what you guys need to know about the game, and then had those questions answered by Mike Chapman, Senior Designer on the game.
Is this just something to keep us going until Dirt 4?
It has to be said that the idea for a game like DiRT Showdown has been in the studio's collective mind for some time. After we finished work on DiRT 3, we knew that the time was right for the DiRT team to explore some new avenues.
First and foremost though, the game will be an exciting DiRT experience in its own right and we're confident that our existing fans will appreciate the direction we've taken, especially with what that means for future games in the series.
DiRT franchise is awesome! Thoroughly love the way it's progressed. Would you guys ever return to GRiD?
It's great to see that, years after its release, the original GRID is still such a popular game and that people have hopes for a sequel.
Matching and exceeding expectations would of course be our highest priority...

Remember Dragon's Crown, the next project from Vanillaware announced at last E3, a multiplayer action RPG with beautiful hand-drawn visuals slated to come to PS3 and PS Vita?
BREAKING NEWS: Atlus is taking over publishing duties in Japan and North America! What's more, key (and very talented) members of the Atlus internal development team will be involved with the project as producer(s).
You know, some of the people who've worked on games in the critically acclaimed Persona series. Yeah, we know: we're stoked, too!
What does this mean for the game? For one, it means that it's going to be better than ever. It will, however, come a bit later than originally...
