Outlook on the next Need for Speed Wednesday, 13.02.2008
Electronic ArtsThe next Need for Speed won't be a successor of the ProStreet style, instead it should be oriented on earlier NFS games. In a presentation to industry analysts, EA Games president Frank Gibeau gave a short outlook on the next Need for Speed:

While a new Need for Speed in development isn't surprising (the franchise has been annualized since 2002's Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2), Gibeau did give the analysts an early look at the direction EA would be taking with the next installment of the series.

Noting that sales of last year's Need for Speed ProStreet didn't live up to EA's hopes for the game, Gibeau said he thinks it was because the series drifted too far from what consumers expected. ProStreet had dropped the tuner culture and police evasion aspects of previous installments in favor of perfectly legit closed track racing. For the next Need for Speed, Gibeau promised that the series would be getting back to its roots with a number of features, including open-world racing and a new highway battle mode.

NFS PS: New Patch released (Patch 2) [Update] Wednesday, 06.02.2008
NFS Pro StreetEA Germany released a second patch for Need for Speed ProStreet, which is simply called "Patch 2". Apparently this patch doesn't contain any new features, it just fixes some problems which occured with the installation of the first patch, which updated the game to v1.1.
The update is suitable for already patched versions as well as unpatched versions of the game.

As it seems it's a patch release for Europe only. Unfortunately there is no more specific information about this update, but as soon as we know more, you'll get to know here.

Update: We got word from EA Germany that the "Patch 2" is a bugfix of the earlier Patch v1.1, which mainly fixes a problem, which caused the crash of the game when loading a profile. As mentioned above, it doesn't contain any new features. The following patch versions can be installed on patched and unpatched french, italian and german versions of NFS ProStreet.
