In between burning rubber, players will almost literally hot-foot it from location to location. A new feature to the Need for Speed series will see players occasionally exiting their car and having to travel on foot in a series of dramatic quick-time event sequences.

Which console will you be purchasing Need for Speed: The Run on? Have the exclusive cars tempted you to go for PS3?

I personally don't buy ea games anymore since they started buying the rights to use certain vehicle marques, namely porsche so that other good driving games can't use them.
