I've been a big fan of this series since PSone. This is one of the reasons I bought a PS3 finally, when word came that Burnout was finally headed to it. From what I have heard about this game is it is open city. You can drive anywhere and race. And it is always online. In the game as you are cruising the city you can call up a friend get them online and they will come and find you in the city and you can race or play other games with each other.Burnout Paradise comes out January 08.
