PSYONIX STUDIOS ANNOUNCES THAT SUPERSONIC ACROBATIC ROCKET-POWERED BATTLE-CARS HAS GONE GOLD

El Segundo, Calif. - October 3, 2008 - Psyonix Studios announced today that Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars has gone gold and will be released on October 9 for the PlayStation®Network on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.

SARPBC features unique rocket-powered cars with incredible physics-based maneuverability, including the ability to rocket into the air or accelerate at supersonic speeds on the ground by racing over boost strips, obtaining boost capsules or by performing a rapid succession of acrobatic flips. While in the air, cars can roll, flip, jump, dodge or spin in a freestyle fashion. In the BattleBall Arena team-based soccer game, players maneuver their vehicles and line them up to perform breathtaking saves, awe-inspiring shots and of course achieve supersonic speeds that literally turn your opponents into scrap metal. These abilities, combined with the players' own creativity and skill create a unique and thrilling experience every time.

Players choose their avatar car and customize its paint style. Wide-ranging community involvement is supported through team and league play, as well as extensive and thorough statistical tracking, rankings and rewards for individualsand teams, including support for PLAYSTATION®3 system trophies. The game features three single player modes as well as team and league matches and scrimmage matches online. Using the full featured in-game video editor, players will have the ability to save, upload and share their amazing triumphs and hysterical battle-car antics to their PLAYSTATION®3 system harddrive or upload clips directly to YouTube™.

In addition to the full version of SARPBC, a trial version of the game will also be made available to the PlayStation®Network on October 9
