Ridge Racer 2 Demo
At zakk's suggestion, I tried out the Ridge Racer 2 demo for the PSP. I can confirm that the file I downloaded has not bricked my PSP (yet), and it does work with the v. 2.80 firmware.

I can also confirm that the game plays just like Ridge Racer. The graphics might be a tiny bit smoother, but I can't see much difference. If this demo is intended to entice me to buy this second game based on something new, I don't see it. Don't get me wrong: I love Ridge Racer. But I haven't seen anything to recommend it over the original PSP game.

Maybe if it included some kicking online component, like easy matchmaking and online scoreboards. Sony and its third parties, however, have shown no interest in making the PSP a real online platform, so I'm not holding my breath.

I am impressed that they made a nice looking one-level demo out of 6Mb. Also, it's got what I believe is a reference to Xevious right in plain view. Old timers like me eat that up.
