Midnight Club 3 cruises onto consoles

The DUB Edition of Rockstar's street racer rolls onto the retail road for the Xbox and PlayStation 2; PSP version en route.


Rockstar Games has announced that after months of polishing, Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition has hit the retail street. Rated "E" for Everyone and priced at $49.99, the souped-up street racer has shipped for the Xbox and PlayStation 2. A PSP version of the game will be available in May.

Midnight Club 3 was developed at Rockstar San Diego with input from DUB magazine, a publication that covers car-tuner culture from a hip-hop angle. It will feature the same brand of street racing as the previous entry in the series, including arcade, career, and online modes, as well as a race editor. The game will also retain the open-ended gameplay the series is known for, letting players drive from checkpoint to checkpoint in a sprawling metropolis.

But unlike its two predecessors, Midnight Club 3 will place a much heavier emphasis on customization. This comes courtesy of its incorporation of more than 50 licensed real-world cars and tons of different, authentic aftermarket parts, as opposed to the fictional vehicles used in previous Midnight Clubs.

GameSpot's review of Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition will go up later in the week. Until then, cruise our previous coverage of the game for more information.
