Shift 2 Unleashed not comparable with Gran Turismo 5 Monday, 31.01.2011
Shift 2 UnleashedNFS Producer Jesse Abney talks in an interview with VideoGamer.com about Shift 2 Unleashed's racing rival zu Gran Turismo 5.

According to him GT5 isn't a game, since it has a too scientific approach to driving:

Auszug:
"I've never really considered GT5 a game," Abney told VideoGamer.com. "A game to us equals fun, equals entertainment - and Need For Speed has always been about entertaining and fun.

"You play GT5, you get a scientific approach to driving. Physics simulations are often subjective, and again - we find we're not presenting the same kind of physics simulation in the race day environment that GT5 is doing in their driving simulation."

Despite operating in the same video game genre, Abney concluded that the two titles don't really compete.

"We've never really professed to compete against them, we've just said that we want to deliver a fun, exciting, visceral, entertaining racing experience."


» Patrick Soderlund once gave a similar statement and wants to "offer the most authentic driving experience and portray what it feels like being inside a race car".

Shift 2 Unleashed: Details about Autolog and Loyalty Bonus Thursday, 27.01.2011
Shift 2 Unleashed Joystiq revealed new details of the Autolog-System in Shift 2 Unleashed.

Autolog was introduced in Need for Speed Hot Pursuit and will also be implemented in Shift 2 Unleashed, as well as an in all future NFS games.

Excerpt:
The way it works is largely the same: at any time, you can press a button and be presented with your Autolog, which will list track times for your friends and recommend courses for you to take them down in -- that's old hat. Producer Jesse Abney says Autolog is now "Need for Speed DNA" -- it'll be in every Need for Speed game from here on out. Its feature set is now enhanced to not only provide track times for unique events, but will now also segregate data based on quick race tracks, race types, automotive disciplines and will even document times on individual segments of a particular track. So it's going beyond "hey this is the time your friend got on this race, now beat it" seen in Hot Pursuit.

Additionally there will be again a loyalty bonus for all Need for Speed gamers: Those who played NFS Hot Pursuit will gain access to two extra cars: the Pagani Cinque Roadster racer and Lamborghini Reventon police car. Racers will gain access to these cars when they log into Shift 2 using the same EA account they used in Hot Pursuit.
