NFS UC: Weird rumours - fake! Wednesday, 25.06.2008
As we already reported, the new NFS will carry the name Need for Speed: Undercover. Our affiliate NFSGame.net received a flyer of the upcoming E3 expo, with some rumours of NFS Undercover. Although the picture looks quite official, the information can be doubted, since it sounds more like a mixup of Burnout and GTA than Need for Speed:

- 13 car brands and 3 motor brands
- new prize system of getting cars (non-buy)
- detailed non-switched off damage model
- fully arcade physics engine
- 3D smoke technology
- improved graphics engine
- Undercover-Mode offering to carry out time-trial missions with ability to use weapon
- possibility to improving the hero (increase health points, reaction etc)
- night street racing cups
- racing stadium allowing to show improbable tricks in air and get points
- available on Xbox360, PS3, PS2, Wii, PSP and DS


Sounds weird? It is. Weapons in Need for Speed? Stunts in a stadium? Heros? Motorcycles? Ok, Motorcycles sound a little bit plausible, but the rest seems to be very fictional. Even the grammar in this flyer doesn't look very official, so don't take it at face value. An official announcement from Electronic Arts is still missing, but we will keep you informed.

Update:
As presumed, we got confirmation that this flyer is definitely a fake. For more information about the game we will have to wait for the official announcement from EA.

Next NFS will be NFS: Undercover! (Update) Wednesday, 18.06.2008
Electronic ArtsEA's Chef John Ricitello reveiled some details of the next Need for Speed at the William Blair & Company's annual growth stock conference: The game is called Need for Speed: Undercover and has a very strong mission structure, similar to "The Transporter". Additionally it has a huge embedded storyline, so it gets a narrative touch.

Since Ricitello was pretty disappointed with NFS ProStreet, we can hope that EA will learn from its mistakes. According to Ricitello the Need for Speed Dev-Team in Vancouver had been working for eight consecutive years on a 12 month development cycle. Last summer the team was split and now there are two teams on a 24 month cycle. Unfortunately NFS:Undercover will be only 16 months development time, but the next year's NFS will be a full two-year development cycle.

"We were torturing a very talented group of people up in Vancouver, which makes it harder to be as innovative every year. So, I think we are going to get better from here.

"I'm confident that Undercover is a much better game than Pro Street, and I expect that from this point forward they will do a lot better."


So, we will see what we can expect from NFS: Undercover. Maybe this name is only a working title, but the mission-based gameplay sounds quite promising. Already in Need for Speed Porsche you had to solve missions as the Porsche test driver, which kept you on the road. I think NFS: Undercover could be quite fun, if you have to achieve missions and get a good story behind it. :)

Update:
Electronic Arts just confirmed that Need for Speed: Undercover will be the title for the next Need for Speed, as well as there has been restructuring of the dev teams. Stay tuned for more...

EA: In-Game advertising with IGA Worldwide Friday, 06.06.2008
Electronic ArtsRecently Sony opened its Playstation 3 platform for in-game advertising and product placement in games for the Playstation 3. Sony selected IGA Worldwide as PS3's first partner, who will manage the advertisements in PS3 games for America and Europe.

On the same day Electronic Arts announced a two-year agreement with IGA Worldwide, to place advertising in its PS3 games.

This agreement provides marketers the ability to plan and quickly execute highly strategic campaigns targeted toward the coveted demographic -- males 18-34 -- through EA's blockbuster catalogue of titles. The advertisements are integrated within the gaming environment in order to deliver a seamless and more authentic game environment. EA has worked with IGA on various projects to date, and this agreement builds on that successful partnership.

Under the agreement, IGA will exclusively manage dynamic in-game advertising within EA's portfolio of PS3 titles including popular EA SPORTS(TM) franchises Madden NFL football, NBA LIVE basketball, NASCAR(R) racing and NHL(R) hockey. IGA will also have access to EA's popular racing franchises Need for Speed(TM) and Burnout(TM).


Recently Massive Advertising published a case study, which confirms the effectivity of advertising in games. Most Gamers see In-Game Advertising as an increase in realism, "cool"-looking and fitting in the game.

Although Need for Speed Porsche Unleashed is already 8 years old, it still counts as the one of the best games. The BMW M3 GTR is the typical BMW M3 from NFS Most Wanted. You can download the car in our download-section:
