Changing Gears...Need For Speed SHIFT
Apr 9, 2009 Leave a Comment
EA's under performing Need for Speed series will receive a three headed face lift with hopes of bringing the series off of life support systems.
We take our first look at EA's latest entry to help give the series a much needed shot in the arm. It will be called Need for Speed: Shift.
Shift is a first person racing simulation, featuring realistic handling of the cars geared towards "core" players. This will be released on PS3, PSP, Xbox 360 and PC platforms. The official release date for Shift is September 17 with a September 22 US release. Also this fall will be Need for Speed:Nitro for DS and Wii with Need for Speed: World Online (the free-to-play online title) due this summer in Asia and a Christmas release for the US. Will the "three headed speed monster" save the series from certain death or is the "need for speed" already long gone?
