While many of you will already be frothing at the mouth at the prospect of Need For Speed Underground 2, the enormous, Grand Theft Auto-inspired follow-up to one of last year's biggest titles, Electronic Arts has dropped a petrol-powered bombshell, revealing first plans for the next generation of its killer franchise.
Speaking to CVG at EA's salubrious Vancouver headquarters, Underground 2 producer Chuck Osieja confirmed that a Need For Speed title was already in development for next-gen systems, stating: "I think what we're working on is going to revolutionise the way people look at driving games."
After revealing the stunning news that development for next-generation systems is already well underway, Osieja began to lift the lid on what gamers can expect from the next serious evolutionary step in the racing genre. One of the only indicators of the potential power of next generation gaming hardware seen by the public at large has been Microsoft's demonstration of its XNA next-gen software development platform - most famous is the "Crash" demo, showing a car being smashed into a wall, then disintegrating in a unnervingly realistic manner.
