Today while I was at my local electronics store Burnout Revenge caught my eyes. While EA decided for some reason not to send it to me, I still really wanted to check this game out, in order to finally decide if it was worth the next gen sticker, or just a quick port. The demo did not make me a very strong impression, but after quite a few hours of play the complete game certainly convinced me. This 360 version if very spectacular, and can look either average (think Ridge Racer 6) or very very good, as you'll be able to see by yourself in this first video.
I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (5 minutes ago)
They also sold 2K and exited the console business... so maybe it wasn't all the best course of action after all :D (7 minutes ago)
That's what I meant lol. NFL, not NHL. (8 minutes ago)
it's pretty shitty to deny a system because of Visual Concepts though. They hadn't even produced anything yet and EA was a giant even then (8 minutes ago)
EA's license is supposed to be up this year I think. I wish 2K could make an NFL game again. (9 minutes ago)
NFL2K was also the franchise that made it painfully obvious how little Madden was changing year to year. EA had to buy the NFL, and 2K bought the MLB in response I believe. (13 minutes ago)
Even though EA had their games on the Saturn and that flopped hard, the Saturn ran headlong into the famous "$299" mic drop moment. (28 minutes ago)
