Yup, just like I promised, I've already purchased a copy of Burnout Paradise and downloaded the update.  I can't wait to start!

'Nother pack announced:

Quote
Cops & Robbers
Slotting in soon after the Party pack, Legendary Cars, Toy Cars and Boost Specials, comes another premium pack - Cops and Robbers. This one’s dedicated to bringing you the thrills and spills of cops and robbers car chases in Paradise City.

We’re keeping details of the pack under wraps for a little longer, but here are the first ever screen shots to keep you going! Check these stunning high resolution at www.criteriongames.com and on Sony’s excellent PlayStation Blog from Monday (9th February 2009)

Man, I've got to give them credit.  I've never seen any game with such a dedicated team behind it.

I have to wonder if this was a proposed strategy.  Instead of releasing a new version every year, you keep updating the one you've got.  I'd be interested to see the numbers on that.

Add to that Sony's recent comments that the PS3 is "future proof," and I wonder if we'll see the day where consoles become like plug-n-play PCs.  Where you head to the store every few years to buy new "Guts" at a cheaper price, but keep your basic unit.  Seems like it would be complicated, as you'd have to either make sure games could run on older versions as well as new ones, or make them extremely well labeled, so there'd be no confusion.

I guess we'll see how the Wii Motion Plus comes together.  If it becomes a requirement for some games, or if, as is my pipe dream, it works BC with all games, or if it's just a gimmick that won't be adopted enough.  If it's handled right, it could pave the way for the console I was mentioning above.

Apparently, since Monday I've played over 7 hours!
And only tonight did I discover the power parking and showtime thingees. Downloading the game means no manual, and I honestly just had no idea those modes were in there. I wonder if I'm missing anything else.

Still not having played this game much, can someone explain "Showtime" to me?

Also, is the Party Pack for local races only, or can it be used online somehow?

The Party Pack is not only exclusively local, it also only uses one controller.

Showtime is the, frankly, limp version of Crash Mode from previous games.  It has it's charms and can be fun, but it's nowhere near what the originals did.  Basically, you hold down both shoulder buttons (on 360), and your car starts to flip over.  It adds traffic around you, and you use the A button to bounce into cars.  If you hit a bus, the multiplier goes up.  You can bounce until your boost meter empties, and hitting cars gives you boost, so, theoretically, it could be endless, though that doesn't seem to happen.  Again fun, but after you've done it a few times, you won't go back often, unless you're trying to own a road (best showtime and race time for the length of a road).

Power parking?

High speed emergency brake parking between two other parked cars, one where you end up facing the opposite direction you started the manuever from.

don't forget, they are expecting to add a whole separate island sometime down the road (or did that already happen?  it's been a while since i kept up with the news)

I heard the Crash FM guy (what, DJ Atomica or somesuch?) talking about an island that you could jump to somewhere.  Like an exclusive thing for the wealthy.  I know it's not the same thing as the planned DLC, but has anybody found that?

So I downloaded the 1.6 update, won a few races and it reminded me how much I prefer Midnight Club: LA so I switched and layed that for a few hours. Something about winning a race and seeing a screen come up saying, "win 38 more races to upgrade your license" turned me off.

Okay, so I just bought the game and started playing this morning.

I am really impressed so far. My last experience with open world racing - NFS:MW - left a pretty bad taste in my mouth. I hated having to drive around looking for stuff to do. BP changes all that because there is constantly something to do. Also, the roads are so forgiving that I barely even have to learn the layout of the city at this point. I saw a "hairpin" curve on the map and I figured I might want to avoid it at this point, but I was basically able to make it with virtually no easing off on the accelerator. I love that shit. I understand that later cars and higher speeds will require an adjustment, but letting me actually have fun at the start of the game is just plain awesome.

I have high hopes that this game will really deliver in the long run...

As awesome as it is that they've put so many changes into the game, my problem is that I just don't have the hard drive space for it.  Partly that's because I like to keep my current game installed (especially since the last few games I've played (Fable 2, Lost Odyssey) have basically required it), I don't have room for the close to 1 gig of space that the Burnout updates take up.  Really, it's MS's fault for not making the hard drive upgrades more affordable.

I think I'm going to pick up one of the $100 120 GB drives from the Amazon marketplace soon.  Anyone have any experience with those?

A used one? yikes, that would be scary. I'd love to have the 120, but so far have been reluctant to pay their Mafia style price. I'm hoping MS will hear the complaints and drop them to at least $99. At that price, I'd go for it.

I just don't see MS dropping the price on the drive any time soon - a $99 HD + an Arcade competes with the Elite too much at this point (...and mostly invalidates the Pro). When I found my 120GB drive on clearance at Target in October for $89.98, I snapped it up even though I didn't even own a 360 yet. My buying decision became even better when the Jasper Arcade units were released in mid November. I bet a lot of tech savvy late adopters would do the same.

Criterion has done an amazing job at maintaining this game, and the premium content planned for 2009 looks almost Blizzard/WoW like in it's scope. They have breathed new life into this one.

That said, the interface blows. Ok, maybe my interface navigation skills suck, but I have yet to be able to find something as simple as pulling up the city map. I can't find the control scheme (this is on a PS3 btw). I wanted to check to see what the various controls were set to. I got my copy used from gamestop and didn't get a manual (I found a 360 pdf manual online but not PS3).  The menu system in the game seems really weird to me.

Also, DJ Atomica is very quiet. I can barely hear him talking. Everything else is loud, including the music, which I turned down but still can just barely hear Atomica.

Lastly, does anyone know how to add your own music to the PS3 version?

I think that is is actually a good thing, no?  Tongue

Also, the munus on the 360 are accessed by the d-pad. Not sure if this is valid for the PS3.

On the 360, the music and sound are quiet, and Atomica is loud now. smile  Been racing my head off to get my A class License (I think), also been working on the motorcycles too.  It's fun.

Hit Select to bring up the map, or Start to bring up the stats page. From either of those you can hit the L1 or R1 buttons to navigate to other menus, including the options-menu (where you can configure sound and soundtracks). There's of course also the Easy Drive menu available while driving by pressing the right arrow key.

Thanks for the info. I knew about the "Fast" menu thing, but none of it makes any sense to me. They buried the options menu 4-5 clicks deep (also there was no sound option for Atomica's voice, so no luck there). The Start button should bring up a regular menu that has game options on it. I appreciate the stats, and the game tracks a bazillion of them, but the city map should've been assigned to a button itself IMO. And I still don't see any controller mapping, either editing or informational.

Are people playing on Live? if so, I might trade out my PS3 version for the 360 version.

Don't tell me you've never even attempted to press the Select button while in the game, despite looking for a map button AND despite me saying in my last post that the Select button opens the map. I guess I've done all I can to help by this point... Tongue

Could we get a get a GT group up for some online racing? I just ordered the 360 version today from Amazon (they have it for $19.99).

TiLT, thanks for the heads up. Sorry I missed the obvious on the map ... durrr. I blame beer.

Why not play online with the PS3? I've been playing Burnout Paradise online in the last 3 evenings, and it has been an absolutely painless experience (if you don't consider how stupid most of the players are :p )

I've been playing online as well, on the PS3, but there usually aren't too many of my friends playing online.
I even joined a couple of your games a few days ago, Tilt!

And a new massive patch plus the Cops & Robbers content is out.  Has anyone tried it?  It seems like a cool game mode, but small in the why-am-I-paying-for-this sense.

Is the new island out soon? I haven't checked in in a while.

Replay feature adds the fun into this game.
(I hijacked my buddies copy for the PS3 a month ago and refuse to give it back)

It is now officially worth owning. Too bad there is no more crash modes.

How well does the PSN download version work? Anyone have it?

Rise, oh thread...

Late to the party, but I got a Driving Force GT wheel a little while ago and I picked up Burnout Paradise to test it out with. Had a blast driving around last night. This is a laid back, fun racing game.

I don't mean to sound ungrateful, as they've added a bunch of free content to the game, but doesn't the downloadable content you have to pay for seem really expensive? As in a few dollars for one new car to drive around? And although the Cops & Robbers mode looks fun, isn't $10 expensive when you consider that the price of the whole game is $19.99 now?

I have this game,and one thing...no splitscreen MP?? That just ruined the game experience for me -thats what I've been playing burnout games in the last few years. Also, I dont get the whole open world thing, I'd much rather just select what I want to do, instead of having to find it somewhere

I thought I saw split screen mode available as a download last night, but I was blurry after driving for two hours straight so I might be wrong. The download wasn't free, though, if I remember correctly.

To each his own on this one, I guess, but I love the open world concept in the game. So much spontaneous stuff to do, so much randomness to the action. I like it better than navigating menus, which always seems kind of dry to me.
