179w ago - EA Community Manager Matthew Pruitt has shared a video announcing that Need for Speed Hot Pursuit hits PS3 today, and fans can play with the game's developers this weekend!

To quote: Need for Speed Hot Pursuit races onto the PlayStation 3 today asking the vital question: are you a racer or are you a cop?

That's the choice you'll make when you get behind the wheel and start tearing up the streets of Seacrest County.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit PlayStation 3 players will experience the thrill of the chase and the rush of the escape as they play through full careers as both a cop and a racer solo or connected. The blistering speeds, brutal busts and heart-stopping getaways are all connected via Need for Speed Autolog.





This network not only connects friends for epic head-to head pursuits and races, but also enables players to compare performances and stats, thereby setting the stage for the ultimate in friendly competition.

I can tell you from playing here in the office that Autolog will bring out the competition in you - even if you're not a competitive person.

Every day we're amazed at the new times people set on each of the events. You think...

Drones are upgraded into vicious Kamikazes that hurl themselves into enemy air units. One of the most exciting additions in Bionic Swarm and the highlight of today's new video footage - Missiles - obliterate clusters of enemy buildings and units with one strike.

Missile Defense systems also help to protect territories of your choice....
