E3 06: EA revs up NFS Carbon

Next-gen racer revealed at least for PlayStation 3; other platforms could follow. Details have not yet hit the street.


LOS ANGELES--E3 is a chance for several well-known franchises to show off their next chapters, if even just for a split second. Electronic Arts prepared a trailer for its E3 lineup, which showed off a ton of announced games, as well as some surprises.

One of the unannounced games getting the trailer treatment at EA's booth this year is Need For Speed Carbon, which also made a brief appearance at Sony's pre-E3 conference.

The trailer begins in the dark, with white lights flickering upward. After a brief EA logo, the headlights of three cars turn on, revealing misty air, and then the cars drive toward the camera. Text then flashes across the screen--Need for Speed Carbon.

There hasn't been an official announcement by EA, so there aren't any details available. However, given its appearance during the PlayStation 3 portion of the Sony pre-E3 event, it's a shoo-in for the PS3.
