As promised, last night's episode of http://www.gametrailers.com/gametrailerstv_player.php?ep=50&starttime=160 brought the first look at Pure developer Black Rock Studio's upcoming racing title, Split/Second, for the PS3.
To quote: Keighley's ominous warning seems accurate - it appears to be trying to give Burnout a run for its money. However, rather than participating in high-speed (probably illegal) street racing for your own amusement, it looks like Split/Second will be placing your automotive exploits in front of an enraptured televised audience.
Split/Second will also add a neat gameplay element hinted at in the trailer - it looks like players will be able to "trigger" destructive events on the track in order to impede their opponents (or themselves, if they're not on top of their respective games).
Watch the http://www.gametrailers.com/gametrailerstv_player.php?ep=50&starttime=160 if you want an example. The developers promise further info about the game next Wednesday.
