If you purchased DIRT 3 in the hope of trading quips and mud online with some pals, you might have to wait a while. If you bought it for the Playstation 3, that is. DIRT 3's online requires a VIP code only available from the Playstation Store; which, as well know, is still down. We'd hoped it might be up at some point this week, and it still could be, but for now at least, PS3 owners of DIRT 3 will have to make do with the offline portion. Which according to Josh is very, very good.
"It is a really unfortunate situation," laments Codemasters communications manager, Andy Gray - so that's where he turned up - who reveals the team is holding out for a PS Store revival very soon. "But we are positive that everything is being done to rectify the service as soon as possible". Thankfully, Codemasters have packed DIRT 3 with content, and I'm pretty certain the Playstation Store will be up by next week, if not the end of this week. [Eurogamer]
