Ridge Racer 2 was mistakenly mentioned several times on PS Plus Premium



Update #2: It’s all a bit of a mess, isn’t it? It turns out that PS Access wasn’t the only place to suggest Ridge Racer 2 this month. over on PlayStation Japan’s blog, it also said that Bandai Namco Racer will join PS Plus Premium in October. Unfortunately, the mention of the game has also been removed.

To be perfectly clear: despite claims from several official sources, we’re not getting Ridge Racer 2 yet. It’s apparently in the pipeline, but it won’t be included in the membership plan this month.

Update: A video mentioning Ridge Racer 2 has been removed. Presumably, then, the PS approach was wrong. As you were!

Original story: It is never simple PS Plus Now, is it? There’s always a bit of confusion or some caveat in the small print that makes Sony’s subscription service a headache. Here’s a classic example: PlayStation Access, an official YouTube channel for the platform, reveals that PSP Classic Ridge Racer is part of the Premium Collection for October 2nd.

It’s a little confusing, as on the PS Blog’s rundown of this month’s PS Plus Extras and Premium Games, there’s no mention of Bandai Namco Racer. It’s unclear if PS Access slipped in its video, or if the game was accidentally left out of the blog post.

We know the game will eventually come to PS Plus Premium, as it was one of the first titles leaked for the service. It also appeared in a listing for Italy a few months ago, so it’s definitely getting around. It would certainly be nice if Ridge Racer 2 joins the selection this month, as we are looking at another update devoid of classic software.

Hope it clears up soon, anyway. Do you want to play Ridge Racer 2 on modern consoles? Go to the comments section below.
