That clearly states Need For Speed, Carbon.
On THAT page, is the same EXACT video.
I'm sure that their web designers aren't THAT incompetent...

Need for Speed 08 is allegedly (according to the 2nd link's trailer) out on the 31st May.

I think the reason for it saying NFS: Carbon is that it's the last ame they officially released. Either Need for Speed 08 is an add-on to Carbon or a new game altogether?

hmmm, interesting. haven't heard much hype...

That trailer doesn't look like a pre-rendered CG trailer and that's defiantly not the engine(pun not intended) that carbon uses...

I'm a big NFS fan, probly own almost every NFS game(competed few sadly), and have played all but one or two.

why do EA have to destroy every racing game series they get their hands on?

just look what happened with the burnout series.

Burnout 1, no EA - great game
Burnout 2, no EA - one of the best games ive played
Burnout 3, EA start to get involved - still a good game
Burnout 4, EAtastic - absolute rubbish
Burnout 5, Eatastic - i don't even want to play it.

same happened with the NFS series, all the old NFS games were great, ok EA has always been involved, but as of late, the games have become rubbish. NFSU and NFSU2 were great games, but Most Wanted was crap, then they followed it up with the crashtastic Carbon - and this is easy for 75% of the game, then becomes like 3x as hard, and you HAVE to buy a new car, as the RX7 or whatever you had before is suddenly uncompetetive.

however, i hope EA can make Need For Speed good again - they should lose the street racing stuff, and go back to the old days, of racing really nice supercars that don't even need to be tuned up... would remind me of the many hours wasted years and years ago on Need For Speed Porsche 2000

just my

Edit: now ive watched the video, im thinking oh god, they will make this crap and VERY annoying - probably make you pay for you damage or something... so you never have enough money to pay for upgrades as all the computer is designed to do is punt you

seems like they are trying to turn this in to NFS:Burnout.

LOL, I was thinking the same thing.

"But that site says NSF Carbon, obviously this is for Carbon."

"No, it's a new game."

"But your link takes me to NSF Carbon." (ignore the fact that the video clearly states the release date, ~10 days from now). "Why would they make a new video for Carbon."

"Dude, quit talking about Carbon, this is for a new game."

"No, it's on the Carbon page, so it's gotta be a Carbon video."

"Dude, no it's not."

Alright, so maybe it's a new edition related to Carbon, and maybe it's not. Doesn't matter--it's a new game, who cares what page it's on. Looks sweet.

looks like it uses the same damage engine as burnout revenge where you hurl cars at eachother. they reused the slow mo replay engine in another game called Motorstorm which btw ROCKS! I hope that EA gets this NFS right...Underground was good, Underground 2 was great...Carbon was *****!

C'mon EA, you're falling off the wagon here! I hope this gets them back on.

ye, i think ur right.


OMG, underground 2 was so awesome too bad i never finished it. everytime i got a bit further but then i'd reformat my PC, grrrr. Most wanted was crap, jsut crap, i stopped playing it soon after getting it, i think i got a supra then quit. carbon isn't too bad. cool cars, ok story line, great graphics... never played underground 1 more than the demo. I loved U2 tho. I think imight try and beat it(might even be able to find the save files :/).
