Those trailers suck. You basically see nothing of the game, and still have no idea what it is.

need for speed had its roots on the 3do due to 3do and ea being started by trip hawkins.

need for speed was more sporty than other games at the time, like Daytona USA and RR, was it not?

remember daytona usa's music?

wasn't everyone pissed that it's sequels never made it home? Since so many model 3 games never came to the DC, it makes me wonder if the naomi board is as powerful as the best model 3 board.

has anyone been successful at running the model 3 daytonas on mame?

I've never cared a whole helluva lot for racing games, since I suck at them, but I thought daytona was pretty dwangy damn good in its day.

Where'd you get the 2008 from? Nfs games always come out in the oct/nov timeframe.
By the looks of the trailer, we'll be racing during the daytime... finally.

The last real NFS game was Porsche Unleashed... when they go back to their roots I'll play them again.

I will agree with that statement, but the exception is Most Wanted. I felt that Most Wanted was a fantastic game, and reminded me of High Stakes or Hot Pursuit.

I think the series needs to back to its roots...

I still remember the original NFS... man I played that so much... few hours everyday for a while.

It's sad that the latest games don't really recapture that feeling... even though I thought NFS Most Wanted was a great game, they just aren't the same anymore.

One thing I have always wanted to see is realistic damage. Not a single NFS game really did it very good, or at all. Judging by the trailer this has cool looking damage, so I am excited for this game if they can pull it off.

Anyone know who is developing this NFS game? Is it the MW guys or the Underground guys?

My Favorite NFS Games:
NFS1
NFS2
NFS3 Hot Pursuit
NFS4 High Stakes
NFS Porshe Unleashed
NFS Most Wanted

My.. not so favorite NFS Games:
NFS Hot Pursuit 2
NFS Underground
NFS Underground 2
NFS Carbon

Hot Persuit 2 was a complete joke.

It felt like a crappy arcade game. It looked really flashy but the gameplay felt like they were trying to stop you from enjoying it too much (helicopters dropping bombs??? come on...).

HP2 was terrible.

I agree. I haven't really liked the series since the PSX days.
