What do we need press releases for when retailers keep leaking new titles?

As reported by Eurogamer , South African retailer BTGames has let not just one, but two big titles slip: The first is Dead Space 3 , which is a huge game but doesn't really come as any huge shock. The second is a bit more surprising; it's Need for Speed: Most Wanted 2 …and all we can hope for is a slightly better game with all that excellent female hotness.

The listings on the store's website provide no further information (like platforms or release dates), but you can pre-order if you so choose. Apparently, developer Criterion is working on a new NFS installment; could it be Most Wanted 2 ? The team delivered the critically acclaimed and very popular Hot Pursuit 2 , so why not? As for Dead Space 3 , the sooner that one gets unveiled, the better. Talk about redefining the very nature of survival/horror!

Or should we call it something else…? Bah, the lines between genres sure are getting blurry, aren't they?

Consider Most Wanted 2 sold. The original was by far one of my favorite arcade racing games.

I'm sold on Most Wanted 2, Most Wanted was a good one but the one that would shine the most (if they make it) would be NFS: Underground 3.

totally agree, used to play NFS: underground 2 al the time and the customization was great. The story on NFS: Most Wanted was probably the best overall in NFS.

I heard a rumor that EA is going to make dead space 3 more action based than horror 🙁

CRITERION!?
oh for the love of god why are they still wasting their time on the NFS series!?
what the hell is black box for!?
EA, what do we have to do for you to stop wasting criterions time with this NFS crap and put them back on the best racing series ever created!?
name your price!!!!!

id love to see a new most wanted game, its actually my favourite NFS game ever!
actually downloaded the ps2 version off the PSN store a while ago.
i wish black box was working on it though and not criterion.
they should be working on burnout not another NFS game!
theres plenty of other developers that can handle that!

as for dead space 3 i could not care less!
dead space 2 was a awesome game but far too much of a dead rising wannabe!
3 sounds more of the same old same old, more of a mindless action game and less of a psychological thriller.
noticed how i said psychological thriller and not survival horror, nothing pisses me off more then when people call dead space a survival horror game!
ITS NOT!
it couldent be further from a survival horror game!
its so frustrating how one company bastardises their game, gets the sh*t thrown at them.
its bad enough when that company does not get the hint, but when other companies do the same?
seriously, EA, have you not heard the bile people throw at RE5?
what do you think your doing to the dead space series?
sigh.
this is EXACTLY why nothing can be popular these days!
please, oh please can gaming go back to being niche?
pppppppppplllllllllllllleeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaassssssssssseeeeeeeeee?????????????????

Most Wanted 2? Yes please!

And please please with sugar on top, make it just a tad like Burnout Paradise with the coop challenges, and I am SO there.

Dead Space 3 is a must play but I fear even more of the horror aspect will be left out. 2 did a nice job but didn't have that lonely feeling that 1 gave you.

Man about time. Seriously most wanted was my fav arcade racer with a good story in a long time. Poor gamers had to go through carbon, undercover, etc. bad NFS games. Surprised it really took them this long to make MFS Most wanted 2. Guys wake up and smell the cafe!
