The downloadable version of Ridge Racer (PSP) was likely delisted from the PlayStation 3 across Europe by the end of 2014. It was last featured in a sale in December of 2014 and does not appear in any further posts from the PlayStation Blog.
As of this writing the game remains available to download in Japan (as “The Best” edition) and in North America. The reason for the delisting is uncertain but could be licensing related or possibly Namco’s decision to simply remove it from sale as the game remains available on physical media.
