IGN has a 3 page article up. They say about 25% is drifting... whoopdy crap. Also, cops aren't as prominent. Good info though.

Here's the good news on cops, if you saw the developer interview video on gamestop, at the end of it the guy said that they've improved the cop expierence quite a bit from MW and that in a way they're more important and better integrated into the story than MW, the main thing is that even though the focus won't be completely on the cops and even though you might not ecounter them as much the guy basically said overall they will be very important and that they will be faster, smrter and tougher when you do encounter them.

Also after seeing some of the screenshots from IGN I'm glad to see the AI has a better taste in visual customization than in MW.

Thanks for the heads up. Here's the article, for anyone interested (including 8 or so new screenies and a couple of in-game movies, the first one of other races than the Canyon ones. http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/718/718351p1.html
Get your magnifying glasses out for spotting new cars. ;)

Mazda 3

So some new cars! But, the Camaro (1968 ) has a freakin bodykit on it. :(

New vids are sweet! Pursuit breakers are back, and WAY better looking.

And can you make your guy have a mullet to go with your 80s camaro? That would be awesome!

Did you not read my post?

Its not an 80's. Its a 67 Camaro with a bodykit.

Its not a Golf, its a Mazda 3.

The last car is a Dodge Charger.

@Speed911: Probably. :(

Slightly offtopic in this, but hasn't anyone noticed free roam hasn't been taught of yet? Is free roam even gonna exist?

In terms of gameplay, Need for Speed Carbon stays true to the open world framework of its predecessors but manages to trick it out considerably. The core experience has you traveling through the massive city that is the main stage for the game's action and challenging other crews for control of their territory.

In other words yes there will be roaming mode ;)

I like it a little bit... atleast isn't rap. BTW, I like how the Gas Pump blows up.

Yeah, me too. Also when the sign falls down. I have kinda changed my mind on this game, I sorta like it better now.

Personally, I think the Camaro with the bodykit, blower and stripes looks like a Hot Wheels... lol.

Lol, I would like it if it had no bodykit and American Racing wheels. (like on the pic with the Challenger)

But the blower is hot.
