Amazon.com shows th 14th via TRU and Circuit City's ad seems to indicate 14th as well, if you judge by the fact they advertise "come-in and download the CC exclusive car"

Well, the game went gold a few weeks ago. Not sure why they would sit on it until the 14th but stranger things have happened.

I'll be calling around on the 9th, that is for sure.

yeah the 9th seems to be the day. Sounds like it is shipping the 7th so maybe you will be able to find it then if you live near a distribution center.

Each hour, the person with the highest crash score on Crash mode (Xbox Live online play only) will be the winner. You can play the course as many times as you want, as we'll only look at the highest scores for the hour.

There's only room for one.

There's only room for one.

Hourly winners will score a special Burnout Revenge Plantronics Headset ($50 approximate retail value each) and be entered into the grand prize drawing on April 3.

1up.com learns how to properly review an XBox port on the 360. Here's a nice summary:

People who have played the current-gen version should get the 360 version if:

They didn't play it to completion, but wanted to.
They played it to completion, but love Burnout a lot.
They have a nice HDTV and stereo system.
They are addicted to achievement points and playing on Live.

People who haven't played the current-gen version should get the 360 version if:

They are breathing.

This looks cool as can be. It will definately get me doing some crash mode online where before i would have been playing offline or most likely other modes than crash.

Is it confirmed that this game has a lobby system for live? If it doesn't, I don't know if I can buy it.

Hopefully it does. Full Auto has a pretty decent lobby system. Though the loading between the end of the race and getting back in the lobby is a bit off.

But the lobby system itself is nice. Easy to change settings and boot people from the lobby. The only problem I have is that it has an option to limit the public spots to 1 out of 8. However, it doesnt' seem to adopt that change and random people keep popping in the lobby if there are open spots.

I doubt too many games will be coming out without lobbies anymore, people throw crazy fits when they don't get the basics of the live componant right nowadays, which is a good thing.

So are there any 3rd party 360 memory cards? I would like to pick up these extra cars but hate to drop 40 bones on the thing.

Not that I know of, but I'm sure Madcatz has something in the works.

So does anyone know if this is in stores today? Best Buy has it listed for release today so I'm wondering if EB is gonna call me; with any luck I'll be playing Burnout today.

I thought video games came out on Thursdays. Would be cool if it was out today. Guess I should stop by Best Buy at lunch.
Tomorrow Ghost Recon is out. Then, just have to wait a weel for Oblivion.

^^ Videogames don't "come out" they "ship", lame as it sounds. Unlike DVDs where stores have them up to a week or two in advance and get released on a Tuesday, Videogames ship and arrive when they arrive.

Ahh.. Never really knew. It just seemed that new DVDs and CDs come out for purchase on Tuesdays and new Games generally come out for purchase on Thursdays.

Cool, EB has "usually ships within 24 hours" on their site. So it must be coming for today/tomorrow to the stores that's a good indication.

It should hit stores today. I'll stop by Best Buy with the 10% off coupon that's floating around - but sometimes they are reluctant to sell games early that actually have a date stated in their weekly ads (this week's ad says "available Thursday")

Direct them to their own website then.

The 10% coupons aren't valid until the 10th. You will have to wait until Friday to use it. Unless you are referring to some other coupon.

I'm just going to use a $5 gamer gift card, the 10% would only net a $6 discount. So it depends on if you want to wait an extra couple of days.
