It never came out on the current gen Xbox... but yes it did come out on N64 and DS

PS1: Ridge Racer
PS1: Ridge Racer Revolution
PS1: Rage Racer
PS1: Ridge Racer Type 4
PS2: Ridge Racer V

PSP: Ridge Racer

N64: Ridge Racer 64
DS: Ridge Racer:DS

Now... Ridge Racer 64 was NOT developed by Namco like the other Ridge Racers were. The "Ridge Racer" name was licensed by Nintendo and they developed the 64 version themselves it has no real ties to the Ridge Racer series other than name... the DS version was simply a port of the N64 version.. So I ask you... can it really be considered part of the series?

Ridge Racer is Sony's Arcade Racer... it's essentially their PGR... before GT it was the "flagship" racer for the Playstation.

Considering it's Sony "exclusivity" (baring the licensing out to Nintendo) I wonder if it will not only come to the 360, but do so exclusively?

Ummm......it is more powerful than the PS2. The PS2 only had a GFX Synthesizer. Many GFX functions were done in software mode (not hardware) and any form of shading/mapping was emulated and very slow. The PSP on the other hand does have a full GPU. All functions that were emulated and done in software on the PS2 are now done in hardware. Thus making it faster and more powerful. Its kinda like when you run 3dmark03/05 and it does the CPU tests. Those would be just your CPU running GFX, while the normal tests are CPU and GPU and they look much better and run much faster. Even the CPU is 33Mhz faster in the PSP and it is the same type of CPU as the PS2.

My brother, 2 other friends and 4 people I work with have PSP's and we all love them.
In fact the wierd thing is that I haven't played my Xbox since I got it... now that I think
about it I've missed out on several months of games!

Well Namco's R: Racing Evolution was released for the Xbox and is technically in the
Ridge Racer family (like Rage Racer). Unfortunately it was a lame attempt at a GT style
game.

If the new 360 RR game goes back to it's roots, and plays like an enhanced PSP version,
then it may very well be one of the games I get at launch.
Oh yeah, a 360 Tekken or Soul Calibur would make me very happy as well.

I didn't realize that R Racing Evolution was part of the Ridge Racer family

That was a pretty good title I played a decent amount of it. Certainly didn't remind me of the other Ridge Racer's I've played, though I never played 5.
