Burnout ships for the PlayStation 2

Acclaim sends its arcade-style PlayStation 2 driving game to retailers.


Acclaim has announced the shipment of Burnout for the Sony PlayStation 2. The game will be available at retailers nationwide this week. In the game, players must race through crowded city streets and highways, all the while avoiding crashes of varying degree, which are shown from a variety of replay angles. The game features 16 courses and replica vehicles, including roadsters, muscle cars, sedans, and trucks.

"Burnout is poised to set new benchmarks in the genre this holiday season and is a must-have title for PlayStation 2 owners who want to experience the rush of true next-generation racing," said Evan Stein, vice president of brand marketing at Acclaim. "There is already tremendous demand for the game among consumers, and we are thrilled to have it within our diverse multiplatform holiday lineup."

Burnout, which was formerly known as SRC, was developed by UK-based Criterion Games.
