Criterion has released a new Need for Speed: Most Wanted insider video walkthrough for the racer. It shows the various locales in Fairhaven City, and plenty of racing and chases. If you look closely at the end of it, you’ll see the Xbox 360 disc box for it contains a purple banner which is usually reserved for game’s with Kinect capabilities (via Videogamer).

Looks like someone at Twitch.TV didn’t get the memo about Need for Speed: Most Wanted’s surprise reveal. The key word was surprise.

According to a report on The Chicago Tribune, EA is in talks with John Gatins to develop a movie pitch for “Need for Speed.” The report states Gatins and EA plan to produce the project with George Gatins writing the pitch. It is now being “shopped around Hollywood,” with Warner, Sony and Paramount all said to be interested in the film rights to the racing property, with bids expected in the low-seven figure range with Paramount the current front-runner. Plot details are being kept secret for now, but we’re wondering why the firm hasn’t enlisted the help of Michael Bay on this project.

EA has reportedly name dropped The Fast and the Furious while shopping around for someone to make a Need for Speed film

This isn’t too much of a shock, but still. UK retailer GAME has mentioned in a tweet this morning that a new Medal of Honor and Need for Speed will form EA’s 2012 release line-up. It said in a tweet since deleted: “EA presentation was great, had mentions of a new Medal of Honour and Need for Speed 13! EA have an exciting year ahead.”
A new Need for Speed is as big of a surprise as the sun rising every morning, and a new Medal of Honor was expected for this year following Battlefield 3 in 2011. Confirmation of a sequel came early last year, and we also saw a leaflet teasing its return in the DICE shooter. It’s not yet known who’ll be behind this year’s NFS, but it’s almost certainly Criterion.

The Michael Bay-directed trailer for Need for Speed: The Run was “liked” enough times on Facebook to warrant a release by EA. It’s posted below the break, and it is, indeed pretty swish. We noticed a couple scenes in it that reminded us vaguely of his Transformers flicks, but, we could also be imagining things as well. Watch for yourself below. The game is out in mid-November. Thanks, MotoGamesTV.

Starting today, folks can unlock a Need for Speed: The Run trailer by “liking” the game’s Facebook page. It was created by Michael “everything is better with explosions” Bay, who apparently, “player the game and spoke with the creative production team to get a feel for the franchise.” The page needs 250,000 “points” in order for the trailer to unlock, and as of this post, there’s 63,976. The game is out later this month. Thanks, Blue.
