Red Faction: Battlegrounds now on PSN, on XBLA tomorrow

Red Faction: Battlegrounds feels like it came out of nowhere, but it’s here nonetheless. The new downloadable game is all about 4-player vehicular combat with “fast attack vehicles,” tanks, and walkers who fight it out in combat arenas.

Of course Danny Bilson has something to say about it: “For hardcore Red Faction fans to casual racers that just want to blow stuff up, Red Faction: Battlegrounds provides a completely new way to experience the Red Faction universe.”

Well, do you want to blow stuff up? Then you can grab Red Faction: Battlegrounds on PlayStation Network right now ($9.99), and laugh in the face of people who have to wait a whole day to download it on Xbox LIVE (800 points). And remember it’s free if you have PlayStation Plus! [Actually only if you are a new subscriber, boo!]
