Burnout Paradise Losing Disc, Coming to PSN

Playstation Blog has just broke the news that this fall the game Burnout Paradise will be coming to the Playstation Network for digital download. That means you don't even have to leave your favorite recliner to pick up the game.

The game will be priced at $29.99 and here is the best part, it will contain all of the DLC released thus far. That is quite the bargain, so much so that maybe GameStop will have to drop the price of the disc (one can wish).

"Here are some of the highlights. All new game modes, like Online Marked Man and Online Road Rage. Awesome new vehicles, including the Hunter Olympus and Nakamura Rai-jin Turbo. 70 all-new challenges featuring against-the-clock gameplay and leaderboards plus the in-game calendar and news page. Check the details on our website."

The Burnout team wants to revolutionize game DLC;
"We’re bringing you much more than just a couple of cars or a new track – this is the complete transformation of Burnout. That means you’ll see new game modes, new vehicles including motorcycles, day / night gameplay, weather, a huge new island play area, stacks of new challenges and maybe even aircraft!"

The next free DLC pack in line is the bike pack and it is shaping up very nicely (see images below)
"The two bikes available from Day 1 will be the FV1100 street bike and the Nakamura Firehawk V4 racing bike. With bikes, we’re introducing characters for the first time in a Burnout game. Both bikes feature designs for male and female riders. Just make your choice in the Junkyard."

So for those of you who have not picked up Burnout yet, now looks like the time. Whether you decide to go with the upcoming digital download or grab yourslef a hard copy of the game you can be assured it will be worth your money the way Criterion is supporting their game. If only all games were supported so well.
