    Hi,

    Been looking at getting Burnout since Christmas as a few of my friends managed to pick it up for around £10.

    I missed the deals but have seen that the new Ultimate one is coming and will be about £25.

    I know it has extra content but is it just the stuff thats free to download anyway? Surely it would be worth picking up the original version for cheap when the new one comes out and just downloading the freebies? (I have the 120gb HD if that makes any difference to the replies).

    Or am i missing something else with it? I do want to buy the car pack with the movie/TV cars tho. :D

    Thoughts?

    I don't think the legendary cars are part of the new pack.

    Was going to pick this up again today but Game - the :censored: scumbags have gone and whacked another £10 onto the cost of the pre-owned copies since the weekend. :mad: (now £24.99 preownded & new)

    Brilliant game - well worth it at even the rip-off price, but if you can pick it up for a tenner then it's a steal.

    So it is just the free DLC thats in the pack then?

    Think i'll keep an eye out for the original for now then, unless the Ultimate pops up in a sale.

    I didnt think that all the packs have gone free for it??!!

    Anyways, i have seen alot of people banging on about how good this game is, so i think i'm just going to get it off of play for £25.

    No i think theres the party pack which is 800 points and a car pack but i'm not sure how much that is. Think the rest is free tho, certainly the stuff thats in the pack.

    My point being, surely the original will drop from it's current £25 (ish) price as this is how much the Ultimate Box is. So if that goes down to around a tenner then is it worth paying the extra £15 for a 800 point pack and content that free to download?
