Play PGR3 with Roni Size

Part of 'Game With Fame'.

Those of you with Xbox 360s and PGR3 who've done all the important stuff and are looking for ways to extend the life of the game (in other words: you're waiting to find out what PHASE 2 of the PGR 100 actually is) can find an hour's worth of respite online on Thursday evening - dashing the driving brains of Mercury Music Prize winning DJ Roni Size against the kerb.

Roni Size is currently at the Xbox-sponsored Big Day Out freestyle ski and snowboard festival in France, and will be taking a bit of time out on Thursday evening between 5.30 and 6.30 GMT (6.30 - 7.30 CET) to take on the likes of you, me, and whoever those jerks are that just ram me repeatedly at PGR3.

All you have to do to get in on the action is sign into Live and add "Roni Size" to your Friends list - that's his Gamertag and all - and then turn up at the allotted time and you could be invited to join in and talk to him over voice comms (or not if you're scared).

Nothing too exciting will happen if you win, but you will be able to live comfortably in the knowledge that he may have his snowboards, and probably loads of women, and a music career and all that, but you're better than Roni Size because PGR3 is more important.
