I will be picking questions from you guys and trying to get them answered at this last community day event for Need For Speed: Pro Street so feel free to ask them in the comments of this post.

You have until thrusday to submit your questions. Also I cannot guarantee your question will get answered.

First up, we have a new Producers blog at Need For Speed.com, this time it is written by Mike Upton, and is titled AAA-Synchronous.

Mike describes the nostalgic ways of old arcade-machine from his childhood and its relation to the modern Online Asynchronous Race-Events we will have in Need for Speed ProStreet.

excerpt from article.

I remember pretty clearly living in Markham, Ontario, and going with my brother to the local pizza place to pop a few quarters in to the Asteroids machine. The place was one of those budget pizza joints, cheap slices of grease-dripping goodness of nothing more than cheap cheese and cheap pepperoni. The carpet was shag, and it ran up the walls of the place. And tucked into a cramp corner at the back entrance, next to the john, were the coin ops and a lineup of the local kids, quarters at the ready.

NeedforSpeed.com has updated their site once again. This time they released a video about the birth of prostreet racing, and how the youth culture has evolved into actually taking their skills onto the track rather than risking it on the streets.

There is also a Director Bio of Rod Chong, and how he came to be a part of the NeedForSpeed family.


Check it out the video and Bio for yourself at Needforspeed.com

As well, there will be about an hour long documentary which will air on Spike TV. Im waiting to confirm this, but I've heard it will air Nov. 10 at 1am est. I'll follow up if anything changes. Im sure it should be exciting to watch.

The Nissan GT-R was recently unveiled at the Tokyo Motorshow in Japan and its being dubbed one of the biggest recent car launches. There are screenshots and a video below of the car ingame as well as an exclusive shot of the January issue of Import Tuner Magazine where they did a 5 page spread on ProStreet

Here is a short excerpt from the article.

"Dominate, kill the competition and take your driving skills to the next level. These are just a few descriptive words that submerge you deep into the realms of Pro Street’s career mode stages as your skills are put to the test in grip…, drift, drag and speed challenges, as you advance through a series of stages making your way past international competitors around the world, and finally coming face to face with the Street King himself.

“Pro Street is the next generation for Need For Speed. The one thing we wanted to redefine this year was the physics of the cars. Improvements on the visual aspects as well as the vehicles handing physics give Pro Street that raw feel and adrenaline rush that you get with every race you compete in,” says Michael Mann, senior producer of NFS."

Well, it seems like a few producers went to Phoenix back in May for some research on real Pro Street action. When Reading that article, I must say Poor, Poor Mustang. Go to the Producers Blog and read the full article..

Quoted from the Blog.

A happy coincidence, there was an open autocross course setup in the parking lot; so a quick $50 entry fee later and we were out on the course abusing our rental car. That’s right we didn’t have any real wheels there so we decided that we may as well test the limits of our rental Ford Mustang with the classy yellow paint job and black racing stripes. As soon as we rolled up to the course with the car everyone was staring in bewilderment as to why someone would autocross a rental Ford Mustang. The course Marshall approached us and asked us what we were planning to do with the car. We explained that were from Canada and out for a weekend of research. Somehow that made sense so he let us onto the course.




As one of our favorite Modellers MuscleCarFreak had stated:
"Its like they got confused between real life and their own game…"

as well, we have the benefit of a re-release movie for you. The Highest Level in HD.
