Need for Speed: Most Wanted – Criterion managed to “crowbar the entire game” onto Vita

In Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Criterion has said it managed to “crowbar the entire game” into the Vita version of the racer.

Speaking in a developer entry on the PS Blog, community manager Jeremy Chubb said releasing the game on Vita represents a “huge step” for the developer.

“We managed to crowbar the entire PlayStation 3 game onto the system,” said Chubb. “Almost all the races and events, the online play – albeit with four players rather than eight – and the massive open world is right there in the Vita version, plus a few more that are exclusive to the system.”

Sounds liked good news for Vita users who wish to take their racing on-the-go, then.

Most Wanted is out on various platform October 30 in North America, November 1 in Europe and Australia, and in the UK on November 2.

    Thats nice and all, but visually the game looks nowhere as good as the console version

    @1 that’s where the portability aspect comes in to offset those minor differences. for some reason the way you worded seems to imply this is like a ps2 version compared to the current consoles and if thats what you meant then you are totally wrong. it definitely looks close to the console version

    I absolutely knew Criterion wouldn’t be letdowns when it came to their portable ports. This will always remind me of Burnout Legends which was an absolutely amazing port of Burnout 3 (with hint of 2 in there) – the graphics are obviously not going to be as good as the 360 version but it’s bound to still look sharp and awesome for a portable game.

    DEFINATELY my next Vita purchase!!!

    Awesome game. This NEEDS to sell well. I hope vita owners appreciate the fact that a 3rd party studio is giving them a console like experience without gimmicks.
    Fingers crossed for great sales.
