Ridge Racer 7

For those of you out there who enjoy the music of "Ridge Racer", I have just completed my own personal recording of the "Global Music Sampler" from the PS3 game via line-in recording.  There is a "Net Disc" also, which is not accessible at the moment.  It seems you can buy additional songs from the PlayStation Store at a later time.  When that time comes, I will most likely record more songs (if an OST isn't released).

edit: Download link removed for some reason!

P.S. - If I see any comments with the "RIIIIIIIIDGE RACER" (overused) joke, they will be promptly deleted. :)

Great, now I can finally hear what the PS3's hardware is capable of sound-wise. Thanks for the recording, Godai! (oh, and thanks for the joke ban; I feel the same way about it)

I second the thanks on the joke ban. But most of all, thanks for ripping this music! Unfortunately, I didn't have the patience(or money hehe) to wait in line for the PS3 this year.

What's the origin of the joke? Why do people keep saying it?

Nice. Now if only Namco would get around to releasing soundtrack CDs for both 6 & 7....

Great stuff Godai, thanks a lot. Definitely going to enjoy this. I think the origin of the joke is the voiceover during the title screen of the very first Ridge Racer on Playstation. If I remember correctly, at the title screen, a voice over screaming "Riiiidge racer" comes up. I can't remember if they used that voice over for any of the other Ridge Racer games. I'm guessing it was a one time thing. What was I saying again?

Oh yeah. Awesome stuff, Godai. :D

Thanks for this, Godai.
I was tempted to do it myself for a while, but in the end apathy prevailed and it never happened.

mazoboom - the joke came about from Sony's E3 presentation given by Kaz Hirai, during which he whipped out a PSP playing Ridge Racer (via emulation), and he said "Hey folks, remember this one? It's Ridge Racer." There was no reaction, so he then said, "Riiiiiiiidge Racerrrrrr". From then on, it became an overused joke on any game-related forum.

The "Riiiidge Racer" voiceover is featured in any rr game I played. But it actually refers to something else - Sony's embarassing E3 press conference this year. There were a lot of statements by Sony execs that did not really come out right. Everyone expected Sony to show off the real killer app, and they were talking about "real time weapons changing" (like that was something totally new), "flipping over giant enemy crabs for massive damage", and announcing the big game, which turned to be out Ridge Racer 7. Not that I don't like Ridge Racer, but with its 7th incarnation it hardly qualifies as a revolutionary title that needs a new console. And they announced it using the famous "Riiiiiiiidge Racer" slogan.

There is a clip on youtube, that is 1 minute long and contains the "highlights": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJElsNaC6yQ

But I really recommend watching the full conference because it was a joke.

Thanks a lot Godai. Huge fan of Ridge Racer music, hoping Ayako Saso did at least two tracks on this.

Anyway, congratulations on getting a PS3, hope you weren't one of the guys paying $900+ for it on Ebay.

Damn awesome man. RR music is my favorite: ] I was dissappointed with lack of Kohta takahashi tracks on this though. Hopefully its more like R4 than RR5.

brilliant upload - many thanks for this, it is really appreciated.

hopefully there is some brilliance from sanodg in this... his tracks are consistently awesome.

any chance of a rip of the special downloadable tracks for RR6 at all?

When I get a 360 and RR6, I plan on ripping.

comment #20

My original post got deleted! ...sigh...it wasn't ALL "Riiidge Racer." There was also the classic Genji 2 joke:

"Set in Historical Japan...here you fight a giant enemy crab...attack its weakpoint for MASSIVE DAMAGE."

Thank you Godai, I really appreciate this, although I'm looking more forward to Twilight Princess marvelous soundtrack. Keep up the good work my friends, and may the light shine forth for many years to come.

Godai: I already have ripped the soundtrack of RR6. It is not a line in recording but I extracted the files directly from the gamedisc. But they are not tagged at all - only numbered files. I can upload the music if you want.

comment posted by Emil on 24 November

comment #24

the RR6 game disc music files exist already on galbadia hotel.
the ones i want are the new downloadable tracks (inc 'Divas' and 'Deep Resonance') from marketplace.
would be excellent if someone could rip and post those ones.

Magicianlord: I did not download any of the songs because it adds up to quite a sum of ms points. Maybe I will download one song and see if I can access it. If I can I just might download all of them.

comment posted by Emil on 24 November

comment #26

Oh well, 41 tracks at 80 points each is too expansive for me to be honest. Actually I don't even have that much ms points right now.

comment posted by Emil on 24 November

comment #27

most of those tracks have been used previously in the RR series.
the new, previously unused tracks are numbers 31 to 41, from 'Deep Resonance' to 'Time Compression'.
i have the tracks already on my Xbox 360 HDD but sadly don't know how to pull them.

Fantastic, besides this rip rocks, it's quite clean. Sounds pretty much like optical rip. Probably it is.

...Hurray for downloadable R Racing evolution songs
