Burnout Paradise Bikes trailer

Burnout Paradise Bikes trailer

Criterion and EA keep doing a great work with the Burnout Paradise updates and released this trailer showing the Bikes in action. Now this game just needs a retry option to be close to perfection.

Criterion Games made this game and the free dlc was their idea. :)

But EA would have had a say in it, surely.

Edge magazine had a big interview with the criterion team, the free dlc had been a part of the plan for burnout paradise in the early planning stages for the game.

But i guess you could say that EA had a say in it since they didn't force the criterion team to charge for the dlc ;)

When I first heard about the concept of DLC this is what I imagined it to be. Worthwhile add-ons that are FREE, and not a few skins or maps for $5-10 a pack. I have hope for this industry yet

Ah fair enough, you have better sources than me :-)

Either way I think this is setting an example for what DLC is meant to be about, I know some people dont like Paradise at all and this wont change their mind, but for us that do this is BIG additions to the game while some people are expected to pay cash for re-skins on planes!!!

I know the next Paradise download has to be paid for (the island update) but they will be getting my money after giving us two decent lots for free! I hope other companies are taking notes - you want something from us (money!) give us something first!

Umm, sorry for asking a dumb question, but why should developers give you anything for free? Sure, a few token things like new skins etc., but additional gameplay-related content...you paid for the game originally didn't you? Why is it that you don't want to pay for additional content either? Seems kinda' selfish to me, and yet other reason why launch RRPs are way higher than they need to be.

Besides, I'll download the vastly cheaper version off PSN when the package is complete, then I won't really be paying over the odds for any of it.

If this game had splitscreen it would be a purchase. The death of splitscreen is a bummr. Pretty game though.

How about for their next update they make a "Showtime mode is absolutely horrible so we're replacing it with a proper crash mode" update. I loved all the old Burnouts and was so excited for this current gen version to come out and then they hit me with this disappointment. They need to focus on what they're games have always done best, which is excellent CRASHES and RACING. Not time trials, repetitive stunts, and Katamari Damacy style mini games like Showtime. I didn't buy this one but would gladly pay for the sequel if they go back to their roots somewhat.

That's ok, we'll forgive you ;) It's because we already paid $60 for the game and the company should want to reward us for being loyal customers and make us want to continue to support them.

Episodic content should obviously be paid, but small pieces like extra cars, maps, etc. should be given out free more often like the previous posters said.

Check out Motorstorm 2 if you have a PS3 (released next month). It's supposed to have a very good quality splitscreen mode.
