Coming December 3rd in EU territories (and December 10th in NA) will be the first DLC pack to hit the newest Need for Speed title. The game is really good if you haven’t picked it up (though I did have a couple problems with it, if you’ve read my review, but overall, it was a positive experience).
The pack features a new online mode and 5 new cars to race with. As far as the new mode goes, it’s called Team Racing. According to a recently released press release:
In this mode, two teams of up to six racers will battle against each other for online supremacy. Individual driving strategy and playing it safe won’t work as team tactics and 200 mph split-second decisions are required to push your team to the podium.
As far the five new vehicles, here’s the list:
- 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 427
- 1967 Shelby GT-500
- 1969 Dodge Charger R/T
- 1971 Dodge Challenger R/T
- 1998 Toyota Supra Mark IV
Most of you already know I’m a big fan of muscle cars, so seeing 4 in the first pack is definitely a plus (though, technically, the Corvette is more along the lines of a classic sports car as opposed to a muscle car). One muscle car icon is still missing, though, and that’s a first generation Camaro. In any case, the best part about this DLC is that it’s free!
Read below for the press release from November 20th.
This weekend on Uncharted 2 Is a double cash weekend along with a new map and fat skins. Similar to the halloween weekend Naughty Dog have got into the holiday spirit and is celebrating Thanksgiving with another double cash weekend and a new patch.
In the UK Terms of Service clause for the PS3, there have been a few changes made. This doesn’t really affect anyone but people who share log-in information between PS3s to download titles to multiple PS3s. Here’s from the actual …
When I rent a video from the PlayStation Store. Which has been quite often lately. I like to see a quick preview of the movie. It’s very slow to load. It’s much faster for me to exit out of the store and pull up YouTube on the PS3, search for the trailer and watch it there instead.
But when I do let it load the preview a little, if I watch it up to the point where it needs to download more the audio will usually skip through the rest of the preview unless I restart the entire preview. Minus annoyance. I also find it a little odd there is no rewind/forward option. Just to restart the preview or pause.
So I decided to time how long it took to fully download the preview. I have a fast connection. I checked it right before I timed it, I had 6.53 MB Down and 3.26 MB Up. These previews are SD too, so it shouldn’t take that long to download.
Nice to have an early update. Got some great sales going on in the PlayStation Store too. If you haven’t picked up Flower, do so. It’s a great game/experience. LittleBigPlanet & Tekken 6 are available for digital download too. Anything for you this week?
