To quote: We're pretty stoked to be able to say that our digital racing title, Jeremy McGrath's Offroad, is nearing the finish line and will be launching on PlayStation Network next Tuesday, June 26.

We've been hard at work on this fantastic and surprisingly deep arcade-style racer for quite some time now. Now buckle up and I'll explain why you should you be interested in [Register or Login to view links].

First of all, as some of you may know, 2XL Games has a very strong racing game development pedigree. Many of our lead programmers and artists worked on the MX vs. ATV series and here at [Register or Login to view links] have put out several extremely successful racing apps and games. We are proud to be among the premier racing game developers.

Google Chrome and Firefox Speeds Blow Past IE and Opera!

286w ago - ZDNet Australia recently [Register or Login to view links] updated browser speeds, as measured by the industry-standard [Register or Login to view links] JavaScript test, and the results should give pause to proprietary-browser makers Microsoft and Opera Software:

Every open-source browser completely obliterated the proprietary browsers in terms of performance, and by a huge margin.

The test compared Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 Release Candidate 1, Opera 10.00 Alpha, Firefox 3.1b1, Chrome 2.0.158.0, and the WebKit r40220 developer project included in Chrome and Apple's Safari.

[Register or Login to view links] (along with WebKit) left the proprietary competition in the dust:

Maybe there's something in the open-source water, after all, that makes those open-source browsers grow up big and strong. IE 8? Well, let's just say that it has a lot of work to do to catch up.

However, Sony's director of communications Patrick Seybold has responded by saying that he hasn't noticed this at all, and "I have both [a 360 and Wii] at home and downloads are comparable if not slightly quicker for PS3. Of course, that's just my experience."

To quote: Two weeks ago, it took a frustrating six hours to download WarGames from the PlayStation Store, all while my PC, Powerbook, 360, and Wii enjoyed fast, uninterrupted wireless transfers. This was slower than normal, but I typically suffer less-than-desirable wait times for PS3 demos and system updates as well. (I get 15 mbps down in my area courtesy of Comcast, by the way.)

"I would say PSN is generally slower than other services, especially wireless," says Chris Morell, senior editor and PlayStation liaison at GamePro. "I switched to wired, which is better, but it took me a long time to download the new Ratchet and Clank the other night, despite my ridiculous 32 mbps down."

A quick Google search reveals the same, that several other users have experienced slow PSN downloads,...
