132w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared a new video today showcasing a Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit PS3 power struggle - Roll Deep versus The Stig in a real hot pursuit.
To quote: With Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit racing to a 19 November release date, EA sent me this video of Roll Deep burning rubber with Ben Collins, the man formerly known as The Stig, in a real-life recreation of the game's high-speed police chases.
If the Metropolitan police had Lamborghinis like that, then they'd have at least one more recruit right here...
Need for Speed's Seacrest County Police Department have some new recruits but will they be able to shut down Ben Collins, pro racing driver, stunt driver and man formerly known as the Stig?
Watch as Urban Music Award winning and MOBO nominated Roll Deep burn rubber in their awesome Lamborghinis in a bid to keep the racer at bay.
Will Seacrest County's finest shut him down or will their most wanted disappear in smoke? This is the final showdown!

Nintendo continues to operate profitably, something that can't be said for Sony, which faces the same conditions that Nintendo does, but announced another losing quarter today.
To quote: Japanese electronics companies face two significant issues when it comes to the current economy. The first is that the crisis has caused the currencies of larger, stable economies to increase in value.
The strength of the Yen has meant that overseas sales, which constitute the majority for many of these companies, are worth less; both Nintendo and Sony have been hit with this problem.
The second issue is that consumer spending has dropped, which means fewer products sold. So far, this hadn't been as severe a problem for Nintendo, but the trend finally caught up with it this quarter.
Compared to the same quarter a year ago, handheld sales dropped by nearly a million units, to just under 6 million total (over half of those were the DSi). Wii sales dropped by more than half, with only 2.23 million sold in the previous quarter. Software didn't fare as badly,...
