EA is taking a new approach to their long-running Need for Speed franchise this year; they've decided to produce multiple iterations for multiple platforms. Upcoming for the PlayStation 3 is Need for Speed: Shift, and you get some baseline information thanks to this interview with senior vice-president of EA Games Europe, Patrick Soderlund. Shift ought to feature more realism and authenticity than we've ever seen before in the franchise, and although we don't see any gameplay just yet, we have super high hopes for this one. Last year's Undercover was okay, but we're confident EA can take yet another step.
