IGN visited EA to take a closer look at the newly announced Need for Speed Pro Street for PS3 and Xbox 360.
"Pro Street is bringing the danger back to racing. Each bump, each scrape, each head-on collision with a wall has consequences. We sat in awe as a target video showed a car exploding into hundreds of pieces. Keep in mind this isn't Burnout. The car doesn't just explode and you respawn seconds later. Black Box is devoting a significant amount of time to a persistent damage system that emulates real-life collision in hope of showing the raw, violent power of these cars. Yes, there are real consequences -- beautiful, thrilling dangerous consequences that will jolt you out of your shoes, and probably your checkbook."
