    Once again those people at EA are determined to get every little penny they can buy putting car and tuning packs on XBL for download so you can have Everything unlocked from the start, for 400MS Points per pack.

    The Muscle Cars are all Japanese Tuners lol. It does take the little fun that is in the game. I'm not going to buy those, but some people will waste about another extra $30 on them.


    I discovered the Hennessey Viper SRT-10 Venom 100 on 4/14/2007

    Save your money, don't buy at release, wait 2 days and I bet you'll be able to get it pre-owned or on ebay for about half the price. EA games are always great for Gamerscore whores to get a quick 1000 but for a good few, the excitement usually dies once they play the thing.

    Don't get it on console, get for PC. When they put on console they can find a way so that they can get extra "whatever" out of you. PC you got many alternatives.

    I can't believe I am going to say this but hey !:

    The EA guy came into work today and he was showing me in game footage from Pro Street and man the graphics look sweet and the actual game itself looks pretty damn sweet aswell .

    So I am taking back all the bad things I said about NFS Pro Street!

    So a rep showed you a game he is paid to promote, wants to make you buy and made it look good to you? He's just done his job then and you fell for it.

    Dude I don't know lol, but when I saw the ingame footage I was like 'WOW' and he said its much better than NFS's of late (although he would say that he works for EA !) but I am seriously thinking about it although Call of Duty 4 is my next must have game but not for a long time because NHL 2K8 is still providing me with hours of enjoyable gaming .

    @ Diablo:

    I asked to see a video of Pro Street because I said I wasn't keen on it and then he showed it me and I was impressed. So yeah he probably thought I got a sale there but has I said its not a must have purchase but maybe when I have brought my new car and I have a bit more money rolling about I will buy it.

    On another note I also saw the video to 'Burnout Paradise City' today aswell and appearantly thats free roam like TDU without the car manufacturers licenses.

    It was only a joke mate, but saying that I can't see that NHL is one of the best games you've ever played especially with games like GTA, Gran Turismo, TDU to name just three.

    Everyone is different, if there was a RC Car Racing game out for X box i would properly say the same, its all down to peoples likes/dislikes, although personally i can't the fascination in fat ballet dancers chasing a black disc, but saying that, you could call my hobby, jumped up tyco's
