Burnout: Revenge mystery auto-update


Remember that mystery meat the cafeteria lady used to dish out in highschool?  If you booted your copy Burnout: Revenge this evening you got an automatic update via XBL. Sounds good. The problem is, for a minute there nobody was sure  what this update did, including the Director of Xbox Live Programming (aka Major Nelson). Major says he doesn't have the full details, but you can now burn out in those cars you downloaded  from the Xbox kiosk.

Xboxic readers report it will also re-set the Top 20 videos every month, making it easier to get that achievement.

[Thanks Gary]

Burnout Revenge demo out!


It's so true: the Burnout Revenge demo is now ready for your demoing pleasure on the Xbox Live Marketplace. Nothing like a bleeding fast pileup to make your Monday seem a little less mundane. Let it treat you good at a little over 546 MB.

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

First review of Burnout: Revenge for 360

1UP has posted the first review of Burnout: Revenge for the 360:

People who have played the current-gen version should get the 360 version if:
  • They didn't play it to completion, but wanted to.
  • They played it to completion, but love Burnout a lot.
  • They have a nice HDTV and stereo system.
  • They are addicted to achievement points and playing on Live.
People who haven't played the current-gen version should get the 360 version if:
  • They are breathing.
I assume most of our readers fall somewhere in the first category and all in the second. See you at the cash register this Tuesday.

Burnout Revenge: more screenshots!


The title says it all, folks. Take a gander at the new screens for Burnout Revenge. Featuring more senseless acts of awe-inspiring crashes, the wrecks like this never cease to amaze. Check out the link for all ten images.

[Thanks, Matt]

Burnout Revenge release is imminent

EA is giving us something to celebrate: Burnout Revenge is ahead of schedule and is slated to hit stores in a little over a month. On March 7th, gamers will be bending bumpers with other racing fans and crash fanatics alike.

To spur on pre-ordering activity, EA has provided retailers with something to help you comit (if you haven't already). By visiting GameStop, Wal-Mart, Target, GameCrazy, Circuit City or Best Buy, gamers will be able to bring in a memory card and grab some Burnout Revenge downloadable swag. The freebies include an exclusive car, dashboard theme and gamer pic.

Burnout Revenge at CES


Gamers attending the International Consumer Electronics Show are getting a taste of Burnout Revenge during a short (but playable) demo. IGN is sharing their thoughts with a hands-on preview and so far it looks good. While some of the features that will be shipping with the retail version weren't available, the "extremely polished" aesthetics running at 60 frames per second are enough to make even the most skeptical gamers salivate.
