Gripshift to hit Xbox Live Arcade
Xbox 360 owners will soon have the chance to get their hands on one of the biggest PlayStation Network titles to date: GripShift.
Thus far, only PS3 owners had the chance to play the title, which has received average to good reviews at most sites. One thing that comes through from gamers that have had their hands on it, though, is that it’s fun.
While there’s a slight learning curve to get used to as far as the gameplay goes, everything I’ve heard about this title is that it’s one of the most enjoyable games to hit PSN. After that kind of reception on PSN, i’m sure this title will be an awesone addition to Xbox Live.
