    arcade version:

    This looked awesome.

    It’s really too bad that Namco silently swept Rave Racer for PowerVR under the rug, as if it never existed.

    There was never any formal cancellation.

    If anyone here has some additional video or screenshots, I would love to see them.

    Hi James,

    Thank you for finding and sharing this, what a great piece of history for PowerVR!
    If we can find anything else similar to this I will be sure to post it here.

    Thanks,

    It has an article:
    *NEC Primes PowerVR For Homes and Arcades

    Retromags doesn’t have it archived.
