View Full Version : Criterion goes the extra mile with Burnout 2 for Xbox

"We've increased the size of what seemed to be the most popular game mode in B2, which is the Crash Mode. On the PS2 version, there are 15 crash junctions to unlock. For Gamecube and Xbox, we went back to the drawing board and decided to create 13 all-new crash junctions - we finished two of them for the PS2 version but they did not make it into the final release version, so that gives us 30 junctions in total."

"On the Xbox version, we have 5.1 Dolby Digital audio, an extra couple of decal sets for the Custom Series vehicles (so there are some Xbox-exclusive cars in there), and we have statistics-only support for the new Xbox Live service, which launches in March. Also, we've included a custom soundtrack option so Xbox owners can race to their own choice of music, plus the 'boost increase' still works even with your own music playing.

"In addition, we have the usual 16:9, 50/60hz options, Wavebird support, and progressive scan for NTSC stuff that people expect from us these days."

"Speed. Sixty frames a second is where it's at. There is no other framerate. All these Xbox games we keep seeing running at 30fps just make us smile."

Now that is awfully refreshing. I'm guessing the last quote is a dig at EA. Gotta love em. :D
