Need for Speed: Most Wanted demo hits consoles

Nyooooom! That's not the sound of a Need for Speed Most Wanted demo hitting Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, because downloads don't make noises beyond the very faint buzzing of electrons inaudible. Press your ear close to your console and you may just hear it, as EA released a single-player slice today.

Nyooooom! That's not the sound of a Need for Speed: Most Wanted demo hitting Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, because downloads don't make noises beyond the very faint buzzing of electrons inaudible. Press your ear close to your console and you may just hear it, as EA released a single-player slice today.

The demo packs four vehicles, each with their own races, challenges and unlockable mods. It's out now on the Xbox Live Marketplace as a 1.2GB download for, as ever, Gold members initially, and should arrive for all on PS3 in tonight's PlayStation Store update.

Speed Points you rack up in the demo, which are used to unlock vehicle mods and other jazz, will also carry over the full game if you buy it, up to a cap of 50,000.

Single-player may not be the main draw of Most Wanted, as our Jeff noted in his review, but this'll let you get a taste of the open-world racer from the gang behind Burnout Paradise. Look, it's pretty much a new Burnout.

      If I wasn't waiting for Far Cry 3, I would be more upset I picked this up. Still has god awful car physics. Shoulda' waited.

      I really wanted to like this game, and it can be fun, but it just kind of feels like a crappy knockoff of Burnout (yes, I realize it's the same developers).

      So where's the PC demo?

      The time they wasted making a trailer for a demo could have been spent on a PC version...

      I downloaded this game for free from Mygame9.com . Other wasted their money in buying it.
