    Had a go on the PS3 demo last night, it looks amazing. I hope the sandbox city works out for the gameplay, it seemed a little empty at first go last night, there are no pedestrians like GTA or Crackdown. I am a fan of the Burnout series, so I’ll be going back to give it a proper rattle over the weekend.

    played that yesterday on import. boring game. but probably not if you like that sort of game. burnout fans and GT are generally at opposite ends of the spectrum.

    I like both but as cool as the open world in the new burnout is, I liked it better when you just selected a track or crash area and off you went.

    Only problem I have with it is in standard def the camera is just too low to even see anything on my TV! hard to judge where you’re going.

    Right, gave this a good go last night and really enjoyed it. It hasn’t really lost the ‘select a mode and play’ factor from previous Burnouts, events are displayed on your map and its a matter of triggering them by hitting accelerate and brake at the same time. Also by hitting right on the d-pad, you can join an online game or host a game, which was great fun when 5 other players joined my game – it lead to some of the most frenzied car chases I’ve ever had in a game and swear/cheer out loud moments on the takedowns.

    Interestingly too, Jack Tretton (Sony USA boss) was talking up a new trend of developing primarily on PS3 and porting then to 360 and PC (well he would say that, wouldn’t he), a method that was used in Burnout paradise. I must say it does look gorgeous on the PS3.

    Yep thats what we did for a long while too. Hence reason rally is identical and runs identical on both platforms. Call of duty did the same. its the only way to do it really but i would say it "port" its converting and taking advantage of the differences. if you port, it aint gonna work, look at assassins creed.
