12 images of Burnout 5

12 images of Burnout 5

Electronic Arts suddenly wakes up and releases twelve new screenshots of Burnout 5, sized in a very odd resolution. Anyway, that's no big deal as the game shouldn't look too different from the last one.

seen this on forums aswell and disapointed that the dev of this game said there main focus is ps3 and in-directly also said ps3 version will be better....man i hate that Alex guy (burnout dev) last gen he said ps2 is more powerful than xbox and there main focus is ps2 for the game called BLACK (yes he did say that!) and now again ps3 is there focus

Surely someone will slap them round the face and tell them they'd probably get more customers on 360.

Anywho, looking pretty good. They're not going very fast, and they're just teasing with those tiny images. Bastards.

You better be good Burnout 5!! YOU HEAR ME!?

This looks sweet! When does it come out?
Commented on 2007-04-04 20:38:21

Commented on 2007-04-04 20:39:42
Can't wait to see some full screen shots. Hope there are some killer online modes.
Commented on 2007-04-04 20:43:16
odd how none of the screens show the destruction burnout is known for....

Looks good, but does it look like this in-motion.
I mean it's EA...........

I would prefer that the game was made for the PS3 than it used to be with the PS2. Downscaling is always better than upscaling which is what happened with games going from the PS2 to the Xbox.

From what I've read this looks like a Burnout Test Drive:Most Wanted Revenge. Perilously close to being both an awesome game or an equally crap game.

On HD, not even 16:9, and no crashes... What exactly is the point?

Damn, was it just me, or was the entire point of Burnout the crashes? Oh, and going really fast, into crashes.
Commented on 2007-04-04 22:05:56
The only difference is better lighting, and the cars look a liiiiiitle less shiny. It shouldn't look like the previous Burnout since the developers said (yeah they said, but...) they were going to use a new engine. Burnout 4 was a port.

This is living. The HD era starts at 1080p. Slightly greater than PSOne resolution shots in 4:3. But that nicely matches the included composite cable.

Yes, EA sucks and Criterion is reduced to being their gimpy slave, a shadow of their past talent. I'm sure the game will look great but as a developer of gaming engines (a ton of games based on the Renderware engine including Crackdown and GTA) they shouldnt announce their engines are incompatible or inferior on competing hardware because thats just stupid.

And naturally, burnout, black and gta looked slightly or miles better on the Xbox1 than the PS2, as they should have.

Didn't this come out already? Shinny graphics don't mean its next-gen... I am still waiting for that next step in Burnout... it all feels like Burnout 3
Commented on 2007-04-05 01:05:45
Looks very unimpressive. Meh.

I dont think its anything to do with upscaling or downscaling at all. Since both ps3 and 360 can render pretty much the same scenes. 360 better gpu, ps3 better cpu. Its the fact that cells code is way different than 360 and vice versa. And developing for 360 is always way easier due to it being xna. Really most developers should develop for 360 and port to ps3. Its cheaper. But hey its up to them.

I just hope that they forget all of this bloody `Hit as many cars as you can` thing that they`ve got going on with the last couple of installments. The first Burnout was pure legend, mainly due to the fact that you SHOULDN`T HIT ANYTHING !!!!!!. I remember the thrill of `earning` that boost meter, then when you unleashed it, you gripped on tightly, swallowed hard, bit your bottom lip and prayed that nothing comes over that crest as you overtake 26 vehicles rofl.......that`s what burnout is all about !......not hitting stuff, but missing it!!. Also, the first games boost meter was way better imo, as if you chicken out while holding down boost, then let go, the meter would have to refill again before you could re-activate the turbo etc. It just added to an already intense formula that worked so much better than their last few attempts.
As for the 360 vs ps3 bollox, I own both, but due to the 360`s pad being the best pad ever made PERIOD !, and the ps3 one being just like all the others......(utter sh1t), then I`m afraid that the 360 is the only way to fly. Bring it on Criterion. How about you do cross-networking and allow us 360 lovers to annhialate the ps3 fan-boys? lol.
Commented on 2007-04-05 02:49:02
Well, I agree with the post aboth. This hit as many cars as possible is just bollox, it was no fun at all in my opinion.

What I loved about Burnout was the intense feeling of speed and the hairy moments when you slide past a car. All in all, it's just some sort of remake of the previous one (they allways use the same locations, kinda lame). But I'm probably gonna pic this one up anyway...
