Burnout 5 Crashes for PS3

Burnout 5 is only going to be released on the PS3 and the XBox 360. I had a blast playing Burnout: Takedown with my friends on my PS2, and I’m looking forward to more fun with the PS3 version. One of the things developers want to do with this version of the game is give us spectacular crashes. W00T! Last night a friend was over and he gave the MotorStorm demo another run, and he got in some pretty spectacular crashes too. Wheels flying everywhere, engine on fire, BAM! SMash! Loads of fun. Here’s what the developer, Criterion’s Director of Design Alex Ward, had to say:

The first crash you see on PlayStation 3 has got to go way beyond everything you’ve ever seen, beyond anything that we’ve ever done because every time we put our game out, people say, ‘It’s the best crashes ever in a game.’ We’ve got to go beyond that now.

It’s also interesting that he says the team are Sony specialists. So Sony holds a special place in their hearts! How sweet! I don’t think that means much, though, except that the PS3 version won’t pale next to any other version. Which would be nice!
