Need for Speed: Rivals on Xbox One & PS4 won't be that different from 360 & PS3 (Video)

Well according to Need for Speed: Rivals creative director Craig Sullivan, who spoke with DigitalSpy yesterday, there isn't any real difference between the current and next-generation versions of the game.

haha true ! last gen when the consoles launched they hiked it to $120 in australia ! its around $80-90 now

Vitalogy4008d ago

Which means they're rushing the PS4 and X1 version to milk a bit more -.-

That means you're doing it wrong. I think it's best for me to set my expectations to low for this. Maybe we can actually get the true next gen NFS successor to Underground a few years down the next gen consoles' life.

Shad0wRunner4008d ago

Then why bother making a next gen NFS game...if theyre no different from their PS3 and 360 counterparts?

This is getting ridiculous. If youre gonna replicate current gen games on next gen consoles...at least take full advantage of pushing next gen consoles to their limits and make them superior.

This gives noone a reason to by the PS4 and XB1 version, when you can get essentially the same exact game on PS3 and 360 with little to no difference. I swear...EA has got to be one of the stupidest devs out there!

devwan4008d ago (Edited 4008d ago )

All this does is highlight how many multiformat devs simply cater to the lowest common denominator and that the games are essentially the same in most cases despite the platform they appear on.

These cross-gen games might be the first to reach the bargain bins on new consoles for this reason.

_FantasmA_4008d ago

Well it is EA so nobody should be surprised. Do you really think they would put in the extra work to make the game shine when they could just slap a next gen console logo on their and possibly raise the price? They know people will buy it anyways and sadly they will.

Destrania4008d ago

Prices for next-gen games are the same as this gen, so obviously you don't know what you're talking about. If you already have a PS4 or X1 anyway, you might as well buy the slightly better next-gen version.

Most wanted 2012 imo was awful, on PS3 the graphics are dreadful, and the crash cam was very annoying. Rival is the worst imo, hated that game. My favourite is Hot Pursuit, great game. Also Shift 1&2 are really good.

OnlyThoseOnTheFence1812d ago

High Stakes will always be my favorite. Great cars, great music, and you could see through the windows which was pretty mind-blowing at the time. Best of all it was ricer-free.

steven83r1812d ago

Lame. The list doesn't even include any of the originals. NFS 1 and NFS hot Pursuit 1998. Must be a youngster who created the list.

CYALTR1811d ago

He clearly stated that being this was an Xbox centered site he was going to limit his list to games that released on some form of Xbox. He also stated he had been playing them since OG PLaystation, so pretty sure he's not a "youngster"

From my personal experience NFS I personally don't like.......
The Worst : Underground 2 , Carbon, Prostreets, Undercover, Porche unleashed, Nitro, NFS World, 2012 Mostwanted, Rivals, 2015 Reboot last but not least Paycrap.
Best NFS I personally like :
All ps1 NFS : HighStakes (the best) including NFS 3 Hotpursuit , ps2 Hotpursuit 2 (Excellent game ) ..Underground ( Best so far)
2005 Mostwanted ( Excellent game) Shift 1/2 (Spectacular) remind me of GT , 2010 Hotpursuit Great game but race Waaaaaaay to long in my personal opinion . Last but not least The Run . these are my favorite NFS titles .
After The Run in my personal opinion NFS went down hill fast with Open world mapping crap, always online, multiplayer crap, alldrive, drifting in every freaking corners, no gripping anymore,autolog. None of this crapfest is NFS original formula. until Ea contract Ghost Games to return the original formula back in NFS it will always be Shitty game.
