    EA's way of saying "Crap Looking" considering it's on wii and ds [​IMG]

    I didn't know "Burnout" was spelt "hardcore racing simulator"...

    PS: It will be the same crap as always, I fear.

    They said "unique" looking crap on the Wii is hardly unique. Of course many companies claim something is unique when its not so I'm expecting another cell shaded racer.

    Its good that EA have gone this way though, more publishers should do separate games instead of whoring them out on every system. Also EA Montreal did do SSX Blur & Skate It for the Wii which were pretty good, despite Skate It being better without the balance board.

    * Need for Speed: World Online (PC) -- Jointly developed by Black Box and EA Shanghai, this free-to-play online racer is set to launch in Asia this Summer, with a North American release slated for next Winter.

    AWESOME.
    I love online racing games. [​IMG]


    I hope this SHIFT is going to look like the Screenshot. Looks better than GT5 imho.

    Doesn't look very unique to me. [​IMG]

    Need for Speed.... Shift? Is this a joke?

    As good as it looks, EA seems to be running out of decent names IMO..

    I'm happy they're doing something from ground up to the Wii instead of porting a PSP/PS2 game..

    Still.. it'll be probably crappy.. not expecting much.

    I just might have a look at shift for the PSP, even though it won't be as awesome as wipeout (IT WONT).

    That's all NFS games seem. You look at the cutscreen/photoshop-ish screenshots and they look pretty. It's the gameplay that is lacking from all NFS games

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I think this is a brilliant idea, especially for DS owners as all the NFS games to hit the DS (and racing games in general) have been crummy. This is because they have all been "Need for Speed lite" where the same game is released on all systems and the DS one ends up being a watered down version of the other games, in other words, it ends up garbage. It happened with:
    • Need For Speed Underground 2
    • Need For Speed Carbon - Own the City
    • Need For Speed Most Wanted
    • Need For Speed ProStreet
    • Need For Speed Undercover
    I think concentrating on a game specific to the system will be a lot more successful and efficient than releasing a watered down console-equivalent of the game.

    Hmm interested in :Shift

    Im sure the Wii/DS will look like shit though. The last NFS I really played and enjoyed was Most Wanted, but liking the Gran Turismo look. Hopefully better than Grid
