Default Need For Speed Shift

just came across this. lets hope they make up for the disasters in pro street and undercover.

Need for Speed SHIFT – Fall 2009
Shift into high gear! Designed to deliver a true driver’s experience that reflects contemporary motorsports, Need for Speed SHIFT is built by racers for racers. Need for Speed SHIFT delivers an authentic and immersive driving experience developed by Slightly Mad Studios in collaboration with executive producer Michael Mann at Black Box and senior vice president Patrick Soderlund at EA Games Europe. Slightly Mad Studios includes developers and designers that worked on the critically acclaimed games GT Legends and GTR 2. Need for Speed SHIFT replicates the true feeling of racing high-end performance cars like never before. Players are thrust into the heart of the action with immersive and exciting features including a stunningly realistic first-person cockpit view camera and an all-new crash mechanic, providing an unrivaled sensation of the speed and feeling of racing a car on the extreme edge of control.
Soderlund is also part of a racing team that recently competed in the 4th edition of the TOYO TIRES 24H Dubai 2009, the first major race event of the year. His team ranked #5 in the high-profile race. Soderlund and the SHIFT development team are committed to bringing the on-the-track experience to players across the world.
Need for Speed SHIFT will be released on PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system, PSP® (PlayStation® Portable) and PC in fall 2009.

Wait, so Need for Speed Undercover was released in 2008, and now NFS Shift is coming out for 2009?! I still have to play Undercover man, but it seems to suck compared to Most Wanted. But then Undercover is definitely better than Pro Street, which was the first NFS game I didn't beat.

That's some pretty amazing looking GFX. I may have to take a fit and pick up a PC steering wheel/pedal set. I still have my old one, but there aren't too many gameports left these days. :)

I wouldn't hold out hope. Most Wanted was the last decent NFS in the set. Underground 2 faltered, they picked it up with MS - but Carbon was a let down, and Pro Street sank the ship for me.
Tried out "Undercover" - liked the return to a decent storyline, but gameplay still wasn't there....

Luckly GRID came out and saved the day - But I don't expect EA to take the throne again any time soon.
