Bow Before the Hydro Jets of Riptide GP2!

Riptide GP2 offers a ton of awesome new content, not least of which is a whole slew of brand new super-fast hydro jets!  You'll recognize some old favorites in this new trailer, as well as some new additions:

Not only are the new hydro jets more detailed than in RGP1, not only are they faster, but you can also upgrade their performance and customize their look!

Contest Time!

On top of all of this, we're announcing a contest to help us rename one of the hydro jets .. the Spinner. This is one of the fastest jets in Riptide GP2, with kind of a retro vibe to it.  And yet we're not crazy about the original name we came up with...Spinner. 

That's why we're announcing this contest!

We're asking your help to come up with a new and totally awesome name for this hydro jet.  We'll pick our favorite name out of all the entrants, and the person who suggests it will get their name in the game credits, and win a wireless Bluetooth Nyko PlayPad Pro!  And even if your suggestion doesn't get picked, we have nine more PlayPads and PlayPad pros to give out to people who enter!

Contest is open from June 28 to July 5.  See the contest page for all the rules and details.

Good luck!  And may the best name win!
