Criterion Miniaturizing Vehicles For Burnout Paradise DLC

Either Criterion is just plain obsessed with Burnout Paradise, or they just love handing out more ways of keeping the stellar arcade-style racer relevant.

We just learned about the Legendary Car Pack heading our way early next year, and now, another piece of downloadable content will drop in the spring. It's the Special Edition Burnout Collectibles Toy Cars pack, which will feature miniaturized versions of 9 different vehicles, including the Kreiger Racing WTR, Carson GT Concept, Hunter Takedown 4x4 and more. Unlike the previously announced Party pack - also slated for early 2009 - this Matchbox-like pack will be free to download for all you Burnout fans. Maybe this will be the start of a trend: every few months, Criterion shrinks down a few more vehicles, and the goal will be to - if you recall your Saturday morning commercials for Micro Machines - "collect them all!" At this rate, Criterion will have a whole new planet to explore in Paradise by this time next year; the downloadable content shows no signs of slowing. They've already produced 11 pieces...and more are coming.

So if you have any remaining qualms about picking up one of 2008's best titles, the horde of DLC might finally entice you. Remember, you can pick up the full version of the game at the PlayStation Store for only $29.99, and that's one heck of a deal.

And good on them I say! At least they're consistantly supporting the game so that the people who've bought it get their moneys worth!

Maybe the next DLC will somehow magically turn Paradise into Black 2. Hmm...that's actually not a bad idea. Get to it, guys! Seriously though, I'm curious to see what else they have up their sleeves.

they maybe milking it, but its free milk!!

erm.. im not sure that sounded right.. er



Anyway, theres also planes to come! I really dont mind paying for some of this DLC, the back to the future car is meant to be paid DLC, so I do wonder if this is the end of the free stuff. I have to say, I really dont mind. Ive brought some utter crap off the psn, so for stuff that I would like, I dont mind paying for.

Maybe Burnout: Mirror's Edge paradise? lol. or Battlefield: Burnout?

or maybe they wanted GTA for.. Burnout: GTA Paradise?


Wheres the forums Ben.. AK.... im going stir crazy here!! :(

I think it's great that they are still supporting the game. Most of the time, a developer will hold back parts of the game, just so they can release it later as DLC and get all kinds of cash for it.

What Criterion is doing is really great. They keep on making top rate dlc and so far its all been free! kudos to them for do something new, and incredible.
