Burnout 5 Coming to 360, PS3
It’s been almost a year since the 360 has been out in the marketplace. We’ve seen a lot happen since then with Microsoft’s next gen system.

Every intersection is a potential crash junction and every alleyway is an opportunity to rack up moving violations.
“Of course, rules are made to be broken, and when gamers enter Paradise City, they’re assigned a Drivers License that quickly begins to amass a record of player’s most aggressive, reckless and destructive exploits behind the wheel. But it’s not the law that’s eyeing player’s progress
