yup yup!


"We've taken the Burnout team and combined it with our Need For Speed franchise," said John Pleasants, COO of Electronic Arts, speaking on EA's efforts to reboot the lagging racing franchise. "So we now have that in our favor because that Burnout team is probably one of the more online-centric and notably high-quality game developers that we have out at Criterion."

That's looks amazing. I have been a little disappointed with the last couple NFS games. This looks like it will be the best in awhile.

having Criterion working on the title may have ruffled a few feathers in the NFS camp but overall I think it's a win win win.

Criterion/EA NFS series and most importantly we as consumers can get back to the good old days of NFS racing, I can't wait!!

That does indeed look awesome! Of course I spotted another trailer available for another game, which I will post in T minus 3....2...
