When I was at CES, Mirror's Edge
was playing on a few PC's at the NVIDIA booth. In there they were showing off the 3D Vision goggles and the cool PhysX effects the game has. Well, now you can get that on your own as the PC version is shipping and will be in stores on January 16th. I have to say the PhysX effects looked really cool and add the 3D goggles on top if it and you get one crazy gaming experieince. If you purchase the PC game, you also get a free copy of the remix album as well so there's a little incentive to pick it up.
Also, DLC for the 360 and PS3 versions of the game are coming on January 29th which includes nine races acrss seven new maps. The pack will cost you $10 or 800 Microsoft points.
