PSP and PlayStation 3 title GripShift is heading to Xbox Live Arcade next month.

Developed by Sidhe Interactive, GripShift is a mixture of racing and puzzling somewhat akin to TrackMania except floatier.

Players zoom around levels suspended in the sky, collecting stars and hidden "GS" logos while trying to beat a target time. Wacky physics and track design mean there are lots of shortcuts to be uncovered, and per-track leaderboards mean there's a lot of ground to be fought over.

It's already available as a downloadable title for PS3 owners, and the Xbox Live Arcade version will offer 120 challenge mode levels, updated graphics, leaderboards, four-player online modes and the usual unlockable Achievements.

No price has been set just at the moment, but we're told to expect it in December, which - given that Sensible World of Soccer is due out on 19th December, presumably means either 5th or 12th, since it's probably not coming out on Boxing Day.

Xbox 360 owners who want to know more can always hold their noses while they check out our GripShift PS3 review, and can expect to find out more for sure soon.
