There should be two in the scrap yard thingy.

Have you all heard the news about the hover car coming to BOP?

I need to download the Bike update (I assume it's available on PSN), it's been a while since I played Burnout. Oblivion & LBP have just been taking over recently.

Just started playing this on the PS3 and am absolutely loving it. I just love the way you can constantly dip in and out of it.

Only played the PSN demo which I really liked - might have to ask Santa.....

one of my favourite games ever....need to put a few hours in to learn the city but when you do its brilliant.
i actually know the streets better in paradise city than birmingham now :D

if you get a decent group together, thanks to the more social aspect of the challenges you can lose hours to it.

got 980 gamerpoints on it too....one bloody achievement left to get. need someone with a cam i can takedown to get mugshots of in a race...

The bikes are fun. Better than the cars (at least you don't have to watch the crash every. single. time). Still pales next to Burnout 2 IMHO though. SATNav racing just doesn't cut it for me.

Aren't the bikes included when you install the latest patch, which is 1.30? Or do you have to download them via PSN?

Cool, it will be like playing the Dreamcast port of Sega Rally 2 all over again!!

The new update on Feb 6th looks like it's going to have some interesting changes:

The biggest improvement for me is the ability to restart failed events now. They're also making the billboards, smashes and super jumps more visible so it'll be easier to spot them.

Yopu can't forget the Ghostbusters, Knight Rider and Dukes of Hazzard cars though.

Maybe I'm too used to 'classic' racers like Ridge Racer but, with every update, this game seems to lose more focus of whatever the hell kind of game it wants to be. Seems all they need to do now is add drive-bys and they've got GTA. The bikes update was fun, kinda, but I really think they should have integrated it with the cars.

biggest one for me is auto correction on single barrel rolls. some of the people online are terrible at them so the last few challenges should be easier now!

When are they going to release the "New Island" pack?

It was talked about last year but nothing seems to be happening... the suspension bridge is still under construction... if it aint ready I wish they would put in dynamic car ferries!! :)
