Rumour: NFS 12 Announcement soon? Sunday, 09.03.2008
With NFS Underground the game developed to a series, which is being released every year. Last year EA published Need for Speed ProStreet and for this year we may can expect an announcement of the next NFS game soon.

As » Tech2.com reports, they could squeeze some information out of NFS Producer John Doyle:

When asked about the new Need for Speed game, Doyle told me that EA would be making a formal announcement in the next 3-4 months. Even though he didn’t quite come out and say it, he was hinting at the fact that they may go back to the whole Most Wanted-ish sandbox style of gameplay (finally!)

Also expect a brand new game mechanic since Doyle claims that every NFS game out there brings something new to the table. Undergound had the whole tuner scene happening, Most Wanted was just plain awesome, Carbon had Autoscultping and Canyon Duels, while Pro Street was... uhh, crap?


We will see, what the new NFS will bring and if EA will be able to learn from the mistakes in ProStreet.

NFS PS: SEC 2008 at the CeBIT in Hannover Sunday, 02.03.2008
Samsung Euro ChampionshipThe World Cyber Games (WCG) is hosting the Samsung Euro Championship 2008 at the CeBIT in Hannover, Germany! More than 200 players from 30 nations fight for the title of the SEC-Champion and a prize money of $100,000!

The SEC08 also features Need for Speed ProStreet, where we can expect some hard challenges between the best racers of Europe. Krzysztof 'TFCchris' Sojka, the winner from the SEC07 is starting for Poland. Steffan 'Steffan' Amende, the 2nd prize winner at the SEC07 and WCG 2007 is representing his country Netherlands and Alan 'Alan' Enileev (3rd at the WCG 2007) is starting for Russia. Niklas 'Sliver' Timmermann is starting for Germany and WCG-Europe made an interview with the WCG Champion 2004 and two times European Champion in Need for Speed.

Excerpt:
What are your goals in regard to the upcoming WCG Season, considering the Grand Final being in Germany?

Obviously, I plan on winning the WCG, just like I plan every year ( grins ). This year there are two major differences of course, compared to the years passed. One of those is of course the WCG being in Germany, which really motivates me to give it my best in front of my home audience, similar to the SEC. The other thing being that starting May I have a huge break until my time at University starts, which really enables me to train harder than ever before. As long as everything is in order with the official WCG rules this year, i.e. no setups for individual cars, I have high hopes for finishing within the top 3 or even winning.
