PGR3 Styled out

New Style Pack for racer includes a dozen new rides, Photo Mode integration, minigames for 400 points ($5).


Back in early June, a scan of an unidentified magazine showed what was upcoming on Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade plate. At the time, the accuracy of the information was questionable, and it has since proved both hit (Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter Chapter 2 was revealed) and miss (Street Fighter II' Hyper Fighting in June).

One more hit was confirmed today, as Microsoft has announced that the Style Pack for Project Gotham Racing 3 is now available for download. The Style Pack costs 400 Marketplace points, or $5.

There are 12 cars (listed below) in the download, as well as the new minigames Free Roam Points, Team Free Roam Points, and Cat and Mouse. Those who download the pack will also get Photo Mode integration, allowing them to show off their best moments online.
