Between Icognito's Warhawk, Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, and Slant Six's upcoming SOCOM: Confrontation, full-sized digital downloads are becoming more and more common on the PlayStation Network. Today, Criterion Games said that Burnout Paradise will be added to that list of games appearing both at retail and on the PSN, albeit more than half a year after its initial brick-and-mortar run.
The PSN edition of Burnout Paradise will skid into Sony's online garage this fall for $29.99, and will incorporate all of the free updates that Criterion has released throughout the year. The most recent update, codenamed Cagney, was rolled out for the PS3 and Xbox 360 edition as a free download, and included new game modes, challenges, and cars, among other game fixes and tweaks. In September, Criterion plans to release the game-changing Bikes update, which adds motorcycles and night driving to the mix.
Released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in January, Burnout Paradise is one of the best-reviewed driving games of the year.
