165w ago - Today Chandra Nair has introduced Ferrari The Race Experience via Sony's PlayStation Blog, and confirmed that the racing simulation video game will be hitting PSN tomorrow.
To quote: Beginning with Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli back in 2008 System 3 wanted to allow players to experience the raw power of the F430 Challenge and the massive challenge that comes with harnessing that power and keeping it together under pressure.
We won't lie; learning how to drive a proper racing machine is no simple task, but once you've mastered it you'll never be able to go back to 'arcade' mode ever again.
Ferrari The Race Experience takes that racing mantra and expands it in every way. The first thing we did with Ferrari The Race Experience was to create a fictional Career mode that allowed you to participate with whichever Ferrari you have in your Showroom.

Today's edition kicks off the with some love from our friends from Naughty Dog.
Their Artist Spotlight hit PSN a bit ago, but we wanted to feature it to commemorate the release of the official Nathan Drake Mod and Kart AND the release of the Artist Spotlight content you saw in previous videos.
Artist Spotlight: Naughty Dog
The team at Naughty Dog are no strangers to blockbuster franchises. They've been responsible for some of the biggest titles on every PlayStation console including the Crash Bandicoot series, Jak and Daxter, and most recently Uncharted.
They are no strangers to racing either, Crash Team Racing defined Kart racing on the PlayStation and Jak X Combat Racing (PS2) was an adrenaline ride for all Jak fans. We were excited to see what Naughty Dog's top designers thought once they got their hands on ModNation Races and see them work their magic and get "Un-Karted".
