Burnout Paradise PS3 Update - PlayStation Blog

Simon Phipps, designer at Criterion Games writes on the PlayStation Blog.

Yet another exciting week here at Criterion Games. We've finally unleashed our first major content update for Burnout Paradise: Codename Cagney on the PLAYSTATION 3.

This was the much-hyped FREE downloadable pack for Burnout Paradise, bringing fans a live blog page and game event calendar, 70 new Freeburn Challenges, 3 online game modes (Marked Man, Stunt Run and Road Rage), plus a stack of changes and improvements to the game, including support for 1080i displays and improved image-quality on standard def TVs.

So, how did it go?


Jeremy Chubb, Criterion Games, replied on July 25, 2008 at 9:37 am in the comments on Playstation.Blog:

I can tell you this much - we locked our in-game awards to your save game, when we built Paradise. That means when we ship the Trophy functionality, it’ll be pay-day, if you’ve already made progress in the game!

ZombieNinjaPanda3764d ago

Isn't burnout paradise on the 360 also.

And if so, aren't they getting these updates too? I don't remember it being exclusive is it?

ToastyMcNibbles3764d ago

nah its not exclusive i think it's because the ps3 was the lead platform for burnout so i guess there's that connection between the two

Ashta3764d ago

Paradise is also on the 360, yes, but Criterion had put the game as top priority and lead for the PS3 system. The Cagney update has already been out for the PS3 for a few weeks now but the 360 update "Cagney" has been delayed until August at the earliest.

Drekken3764d ago

I took it as a PS3 blog with PS update with trophies.

Nuclearfish3764d ago

Microsoft picked up some bugs in the final stages of testing, so Criterion have been working to sort these out. Then they've got to test it all again and give it back to Microsoft for them to test it andf approve it. Right now August 4th is the earliest it could be released on 360.
