If you can play online then I'm there. I enjoyed the first one and this one looks to be more spectacular crash wise. I just wish they'd turn off the jupiter gravity whenever you crash. Things come to a stop too abruptly.

it will support HDTV
Like the last one? :rolleyes:

I sure hope they figured out what that phrase actually means this time around.

I hope it is playable on Live though and not just track stats and downloads. That is a disturbing trend IMO and a cop out to what Live actually is.
