Burnout Paradise - Coming to PSN

For those of you on the fence about purchasing Criterion's most recent Burnout iteration, Burnout Paradise, this recent announcement may just tip your hand.

Coming this fall, the game will be made available on PSN for the bargain price of $29.99, or about €20.49. In addition, the game will download with all previously released DLC as part of the install, simplifying the lengthy update process to a single step.

Or, as Jeremy Chubb, Producer of Criterion Games, puts it, "this is an all-singing, all-dancing version complete with all the free packs so far. Here are some of the highlights. All new game modes, like Online Marked Man and Online Road Rage. Awesome new vehicles, including the Hunter Olympus and Nakamura Rai-jin Turbo. 70 all-new challenges featuring against-the-clock gameplay and leaderboards plus the in-game calendar and news page."

Ready for the best news yet? This direct download option is a PlayStation 3 exclusive. Criterion decided to do their initial development on the PlayStation 3; they're continuing their excellent support for the system with this announcement.

The download should be around the release of the Burnout Bikes pack, which will bring motorcycles to the Burnout world for the first time. Criterion has also announced that the Addition of Trophies will occur after the release of Burnout Bikes. With the ongoing support and ever-changing nature of Burnout Paradise, there's never been a better time to buy.

Thirty bucks and I don't have to leave my oh-so-comfy chair? I think I'll finally get this game. I had fun in the demo, but I didn't like the menu-less interface. I think I might be able to overlook that in exchange for such a sweet deal.

I'm not going to lie, I felt the exact same way when I played the demo. Facing the onslaught of the free updates, which is so wonderfully commendable of Criterion, I caved when the price dropped to $30; I haven't regretted it. Something about the demo just didn't convey the fun you can have in an open world racing game.

And in my opinion, nothing beats Open World Road Rage - boy is that a good time.

Shockingly I don't own a copy of Burnout Paradise, but if the support for it continues to be this good I'm going to have to fork over my cash. After filling some guy full of lead on CoD4, nothing beats a good bit of Road Rage.
