    If you intend to buy this from game there is a demo disk for sale at the moment which also has live playable level aswell as the normal off line stuff.
    But this comes at a price of £3 but this £3 will be taken off the price of the game when you buy it from them I have seen some people play this on live and they say its pretty cool and looks like a good laugh :cool:

    Graphics are superb in this and the speeds are just awesome, I would say too fast. It's more like Tron that a driving game. Hilarious crashes though.

    Which format will be the quickest ? Ps2 or Xbox ? I'm new to the xbox so haven't played the same game on both consoles yet to get a comparison of speed.

    Typhoon - are you on about Outrun 2 or Burnout 3 ??? didnt know there was a xbox live demo of Burnout 3 out??

    Ordered mine aswell - hate driving games though But this isnt just driving its crashing aswell and i'm very good at that :D
    The PAL ausie version was release last week so you can play it now if you can get it.
    It has the usual EA xbox live lobbys eg they are set up in regions America,Europe etc once in the lobby you can chat using the text keyboard - no voice chat due to the lobbys holding 100's of people.
    NOTE if you want to play against USA people you must make sure you are running the game in 60hz You wont be able to connect to someone if you are playing in 50Hz and they are in 60Hz and vice a versa.

    Whats a 'usual' EA Xbox Live system? This is the first Live title EA have released, no?

    This huge lobby thing sounds a bit pants - how do you set up a 8-player game - is there a sub-lobby you go to? And whats a text keyboard - there is no keyboard released for Xbox - you can't mean you have to type using a joypad? Is there voice in-game?

    There is a Burnout 3 demo available (might be PS2 only though) at Game for a £1.99 deposit. So you're not completely confused!

    I didn't think ANY EA games were on xbox live because of some license disagreement. Something like EA wanted to close all servers once the new version of their game came out e.g shut all Fifa 2004 when 2005 is released.

    Its all been sorted now apparently... Hope the rumour of not been able to play an earlier version online isn't true, that could put people off.

    Been playing the PS2 US version and its very similar to Burnout 2 really, just tarted up a bit. The crash part of the game again is the best bit, the aftertouch facility is a nice idea (unrealistic) but good fun. And its very fast. Its had the EA makeover treatment.

    its awesome! Easily the best ever online racer.
    BTW - make sure you set your xbox to use 60hz though!

    mines always on 60hz - although this stops you from joining 90% of all online games if you are in the europe lobby when i was on last night...

    Does the game run worse in 50hz mode??
