Hands-on – One last drive with NFS: Hot Pursuit and a chat with EA Games Europe chief Patrick Söderlund
The Need for Speed series was in trouble a year and a half ago. “They were losing quality, repetitive and EA were beating up the franchise and losing consumer interest in the brand,” says Patrick Söderlund, Senior VP of EA Europe.
Something had to change. Let’s face it, racers are a dime a dozen, especially on this generation of consoles, which has spoiled us for choice with titles such as Forza, Project Gotham Racing and Gran Turismo (well eventually, anyways), to name a few. Söderlund knew this, so when he was asked to come in and rescue the series, he and his team decided to stop the cycle of the same team making game after game each year, and instead have several studios working the series, as he felt this “would make the brand successful again.”
Now, after last year’s Shift from Slightly Mad Studios, if you’re going to continue rescuing a failing franchise, asking the studio that developed Burnout Paradise would seem a good start.

When EA’s Patrick Soderlund got a look at Natal during E3, the Senior VP said he was impressed, but that 360 has been ‘maxed out’, and PS3 hasn’t.
“I like the Natal,” he told OXM at E3. “That’s cool. It’s an interesting device, so I’m truly impressed by Xbox. It’s my personal favorite console… I think Microsoft is on a roll right now. They’re doing really well. If I was Sony, I would have a headache, to be honest.”
He admitted too that Sony showed a great line-up, and was impressed with the amount of developers getting to know the ins and outs of the console.
“Sony has a lot of good games this year,” he said. “If you go to their booth, there’s a very consistent, high quality product line-up and that will help them. I do think that we’ll see developers inside the organization getting to understand the PS3 better and I think that we’re getting more power out of PS3 right now.
“I think that we’ve maxed out the 360 but we haven’t maxed out the PS3.”
