72w ago - Game Director Paul Rustchynsky has posted up a video run-through on the competitive online play in MotorStorm RC for both PS3 and PS Vita today.
To quote: MotorStorm RC is a few short weeks away and already the competitive online cross-play at its heart is igniting intense rivalries.
Here at Evolution Studios there's been a lot of competition for the best performances on every track and we're thrilled that gamers and journalists are experiencing this at special preview events all around the world.
Ahead of getting the opportunity to jump into the competition for yourself, I'm here to give you the low down on just how online competition works with other players - running you through a short video of me competing with Zoe (Evolution Studios QA Manager, who sits on the desk across from me) as I take on her performance in a Hot Lap race.

To quote: As PlayStation fans should already know, Need for Speed The Run is an illicit high-stakes cross-country race from San Francisco to New York. You'll be playing as Jack, who is a marked man and his only way out is to battle other 200 racers for a sweet $25 million dollar prize.
Starting October 18th, PS3 owners can get their hands on The Run demo on the PlayStation Store! Featuring the monster Lamborghini LP550-2 Valentino Balboni and the brand-new Porsche Carrera S, the demo will let you open them up in two locations set in the US.
