With Need For Speed: ProStreet set to bobble tankerishly round the final bend into retail next Friday on PS3, Xbox 360, PS2, PC and DS, Electronic Arts has got in there early with some premium downloadable content on Xbox Live.
But why isn't this stuff on the disc? Aha, it is. These bundles are designed to unlock things you can't be bothered to purchase by progressing through the Career mode. Cheats, then. And cheaters never prosper - in fact they spend 400 Microsoft points a pop on three bundles or 800 for the "Ultimate" bundle.
The Tuner Car Bundle features the Nissan 350Z (Z33), Ford Focus ST, Volkswagen R32, Audi S3, Lancer Evolution IX and Subaru Impreza WRX STI; the Sport Car Bundle consists of the Audi S4, Audi TT 3.2 Quattro, Lotus Elise, BMW M3 E46, Porsche Cayman S and BMW Z4 M Coupe; and the Muscle Car Bundle consists of, er, we're not sure actually. But we assume it's not exactly the same as the Tuner Car Bundle, despite what it says on Xbox Live at the moment.
Anyway, if you want all of that so much that you need the three sets, then you can go for an Ultimate Performance Bundle, which features all of the above. Or you could just play the game, which seems like a better option. Or not at all, depending on if it's any good - watch out for our review soon to find out!
