NFS 11: Pro Street? Friday, 25.05.2007
NFS 11Apparently the rumours about the name Need for Speed Pro Street some months ago weren't a lie after all...the print magazine PLAY published an article about the upcoming Need for Speed in its current isses and the game has the name Need for Speed Pro Street.

As it seems this wasn't so much pre-decided with the headquarters of Electronic Arts, because even the website electronicarts.cz used the name 'NFS Pro Street' for about two days, but now it's taken offline.

   


The article in the magazine PLAY shows for the first time a different car than the RX7, which was already shown in the Teaser: there will be a AUDI RS4 in the game!

Additionally they mention the minimum system requirements, but we will see if we can rely on that, because 250 MB RAM for such a game seems doesn't seem to be enough:

CPU: 1.6 GHz
RAM: 256 MB
Graphics Card: 256 MB
DVD-Drive


For really tangible information we have to wait until May 31st...

Info: Discussion Board is down Sunday, 06.05.2007
Unfortunately our english discussion board has been hacked and we had to take it offline. We are working on it to bring it back online, but it will take a while. I have to import a database backup from yesterday, so any recent posts and registrations may be lost. :(

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Update: The backup is imported, but there seems to be a problem with the database and the search index. We are working on this issue, please be patient.

Update 2: Unfortunately I didn't have time to import the backup yesterday, so I decided to make the best out of it. I will move the english board from my old hoster to a new server, which is located in a data center in Germany. I hope the board will be back online this evening.
