    Hmm… unnecessary subtitle is unnecessary. And a bit rubbish.

    Isn’t there an unwritten rule that you only put a sub-heading on your game’s title when it’s a sequel? It really doesn’t make any sense to add it to a new IP.

    In fact, I think it’s put me off buying. Is that shallow? Yes. Am I convinved that this will now be a worse game because of the name? Also, yes.

    Split Slash Second Velocity

    why have they plopped ‘Velocity’ on the end of the title, unless there’s other versions of the game coming out on wii or handheld’s

    Wii: Split/Second: Casual
    iphone: Split/Second: Uncontrollable

    No, why is it Split *slash* Second in the first place? I always thought that was some stupid trendy decision by a committee. Now, it makes a tiny bit more sense, with the velocity extension. (Cars that accelerate to top speed quickly. since they’re bound to be shown on the box art. ;) )
