If you're more about the crazy, ceaseless speed of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and less about the complexity and intricacy of Gran Turismo 5 , you'll want the NFS DLC.

EA has announced a fresh batch of downloadable content for Hot Pursuit ; it boasts new cars, new events and even new Trophies/Achievements. It's called the Super Sports Pack and it's already the fourth piece of DLC for the popular racer. In addition to 12 new events (for both the chasers and the chasees), here are the 6 new cars:

We don't have a price or release date just yet, but you can always check NeedForSpeed.com for updates. The new Need for Speed iteration launched a few weeks ago, and it was warmly received by critics and gamers alike. There's no doubt EA and Criterion will continue to support the game via DLC for quite a long time, so keep racin'.

Forth piece of DLC you say? Already? Forgive my ignorance but has any or all of this been free or chargeable? If it's the latter I cant help but wonder if they purposely held some cars/content off from the disc only to sell it to us as DLC post launch.

I wondered the same thing myself.

I would like to know the prices of all the DLC together if it is charged for, just so I know how much money it takes to get a full game out of NFS in comparison to the full game that was released on the GT5 disc.

Particularly when certain comments regarding the amount of content provided by a well known competing product were somewhat negative. I too wish to know the combined amounts of prices and content between the two racers.

First two pieces of DLC we're unlocks for access to the better cars in the game earlier. 3rd DLC unlocked some of the cars only available to the police to be used as a racer, not bad for a couple bucks. With the amount of DLC released by Criterion on Burnout Paradise, I would expect a lot more. Supporting a game after launch is never a bad thing. Just look at Singularity by Activision, not a bad concept for online multiplayer (a lot like the Dead Space 2 beta), absolutely no support after launch. Just terrible

Of course they kept content out of the final game so they could sell it post launch. That's how EA rolls and that's why they were b!tching about the amount of content PD gave us for no extra cost. They are scamming people. I wouldn't be surprised if this stuff is already on the disc and EA is just selling the keys to unlock it much like Crapcom did with the Vs mode in Resident Evil 5. What a joke, this coupled with that jackasses statements about GT5 has pushed me over the edge. I'm as done with EA as I am with Craptivision. These people don't care about gamers, only lining their pockets further. This is a turning point in gaming. And it's a turn for the worse. DLC has mostly given greedy companies a means to rip us off. This is why I'm against a full digital gaming world. Gives more power to the big companies and less to the consumer. I shudder to think about the kind of crap EA, Craptivision and others like them would pull in an all digital distribution gaming world.

This game is pretty easy it to platinum. I don't usually hunt for trohpies but these were so easy I did. It was my frist platinum and it took about 40 hrs to get it. I don't like that there adding more trophies becasue it will take away my 100% and I won't buy the dlc for it

I'm reading good things about the latest NFS. Apparently Criterion has another masterpiece on its hands. I guess I'm going to have to get this one.

I called it. EA complained 1000 cars is too many. It's not the amount of cars that bothers them, it's the fact PD gave them to us for no additional cost. Screw EA price gouging DLC. These people are shameless.

Indeed you did. It's amazing to me that GT5's 1000 cars are even griped about.

Especially when one considers that you can't modify the cars in NFS Hot Pursuit.

Oh wait, some of them have a light rack on the roof.

Ooooh, Ooooh and if we could only spend hours painting and putting pretty stickers on our cars instead of actually racing then it might be a perfect game!

People have forgotten what Gran Turismo represents. Shameful.

I enjoy fun racers, so I bought this. No regrets, it's fantastic.

GT5's just OK reviews have put me off getting it….that and I'm not a fan of driving cars that are about as fun to control as a slippery brick.

Jawknee

If you do not have the game then how do you know they drive like a "slippery brick"? And how do you know what a slippery brick drives like to begin with? Wasn't aware you could drive bricks.

If Kaz wasn't a professional race driver, which in turn defines GT5's physics engine, you might actually have a point.

If you want a review of GT5, read this sites review on the game. It's honest, but it also doesn't detract from the big picture.

Also, your post makes no sense. Most, if not all of these "just OK" reviews praise the games physics and the cars' handling. Only knocking it for petty issues that go over looked in other games. Like jagged shadows. So again, how is it these cars handle like "slippery bricks"?

Hezzron

@ Jawknee – Yes, if you have the right skill sets, you can drive a slippery brick.

Also, did you know you can milk a cat? Actually, you can milk anything with nipples.

@ maxpontiac – The game's not a 7 like some sites have given it. But it's not a 9.9 either.

Jawknee

Your milking nipples crack still doesn't answer the inconsistency in your statement. You used "just OK" reviews as an excuse not to get the game then you knocked the game(without having played it) for not being fun to play yet your "just OK" reviews you used as justification not to get the game praise the game's game play and realism in handling these cars. They said the game is actually a lot of fun to play, they just have problems with the presentation and jaggie shadows, etc. As Max stated above, issues that go largely overlooked when it comes games like Call of Duty.

Obviously your sensitive to the issue of the game reviewing community not embracing GT5 as a perfect game, managing a just OK average of 84%. GT5 has more issues than the few you chose to list.

You can stop trolling me down the hill now. I won't be an outlet for your frustration.

LOL! Way to avoid the challenge yet again. I'm not trolling nor am I sensitive, I am only pointing out the inconsistency in your flawed logic. You made an inane and uninformed statement about a game you have not played, yet I'm trolling? That's cute. ūüėČ

Hezzron –

Considering that GT5 is the premiere driving experience, I say PSX's review is far closer then you might be willing to give credit for.

Personally? I score it a 9.5. The RM feature is limited to only a few cars and Standard cars are non modifiable from a visual standpoint. Dynamic time of day and weather on all tracks would have been huge as well.

It's not perfect, but anyone who fails to find fault in GT5 due to the jaggies is only fooling themselves and living their own personal lie.

I have GT3, GT4 and GT5 Prologue and I can certainly understand the "slippery bricks" joke.

Impossible to compare GT5 to this game, each one scratches a different itch. I will play GT5 for countless hours without ever completing it, screwing with my cars in every manner possible. NFS:HP is an adrenaline rush, something I'll play on and off for a long time to come. There is no question though, both are complete games.

If EA think too many cars is wrong, then why are they adding more cars to their games?

Jawknee

They're only against more cars when they are free. GT5 makes them look like greedy little buggers.

The funny thing is that 200 premium cars is more than any arcade racers.

As much as I enjoy NFS:HP…EA really has gone over board with the charging for little things…Although this may be their answer to keeping online gaming free, charge for crap you don't need….lol.

I agree with you there..thanks to online gaming, no one even focuses on doing split screen in games anymore..for some reason most developers feel as though we wouldn't use it…Burnout crash Parties use to be a favourite thing to do with friends when we had a few drinks in us, now? Well I've got the Move so there are still some games, but the games we used to love playing together don't exist anymore…
