Burnout Crash skids out Sept. 20

Criterion Games' downloadable destruction-focused spin-off to arcade racing series set to arrive on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 with $10 price tag attached.

Burnout Crash may have missed its August appointment with Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network, but Electronic Arts isn't letting its racing series spin-off drift too far into the future. The publisher today announced that the Criterion Games-developed downloadable game will debut on September 20 at a $10 price point.

It's the combo multipliers that really make your insurance premiums soar.

Burnout Crash is a top-down take on the Burnout series' signature crash mode, which challenges players to wreck their rides in spectacular fashion, taking as much municipal property and other vehicles with them as possible. The game sports three modes across six locations and boasts 18 crash junctions. Additionally, Burnout Crash supports the Autolog feature, an online social infrastructure that was first introduced in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit and lets players measure their performance against their friends.

The Xbox 360 iteration of Burnout Crash will support Microsoft's gesture-recognition technology, Kinect. The Kinect-enabled game mode has two teams using gesture controls to crash and burn in what EA calls a "party battle."

More like a kiddie game and even more like a FB game! It should be more suitable if this game is placed on FB or G+!

@shadow4020 As I recall Criterion was hiring for a full fledged next gen open world game a week or two ago. I was mad about this game before, but if it'll help tide me over until the next full Burnout game I'll grab it. It might be fun for a diversion.

I hope a follow up of Paradise is announced soon, because this game doesn't interest me at all.

This is not Burnout... EA, are you sure you didn't mean to release this on iOS? I think they got the platforms mixed up. (Sarcasm)

Umm, I'll wait for Forza 4 and the next real Burnout..... Hopefully the next one is a little more like Revenge with a real crash mode intact but still open world like Paradise City......

It's to bad that I'm gonna miss this game because Gears of War 3 is also going to be release on that date. But I will still give this burnout Crash a chance until I finish Gears of War 3.
