Burnout Crash First Details

Criterion Games has made a name for itself with their “Burnout” franchise, their FPS “Black” and their more recent release “Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit”.  Lately there’s been some rumors of a new “Burnout” game in the works called “Burnout Crash.”  It appears this is true seeing that the ESRB (Entertainment Software Ratings Board) listed the details of what the game is about.
“This is an action game in which players earn points for creating traffic pileups. From a top-down perspective, players initiate crashes by driving ‘cartoony’ vehicles (e.g., cars, trucks, vans, buses) into busy intersections; multiple crashes trigger score multipliers and rack up large ‘bills’ of property damage. Each level is accompanied by crashing sounds, small explosions, and vocal encouragement (e.g., ‘Cool’, ‘Maximum Carnage!”). In some levels, players are instructed to crash into police cars (e.g., ‘Crash them before they bust you!”); in other sequences, oversized airplanes, tornados, lobster monsters, and UFOs slide across the screen, destroying any vehicles in their path.”

Well, it’s certainly a different direction for the franchise.  Chances are it’s going to be an downloadable title via PSN/XBLA/Steam.  Sound off your thoughts in the comments!
