Doubt there'll be a Honda; there's never been a Honda in an NFS game that also featured police. Most likely something to do with licensing.

I think most of the questions are made up and a bunch of bull. :?
Who would ever believe that one of the popular questions among hundreds would be about their car being impounded?
They're just keeping a blind eye on the real issues to be addressed. Heck, the frame rate issues isn't even assured to be totally fixed.

Because the majority of the questions are the same?
Frame rate issues will be fixed.

I kinda agree with gucci. I mean, that is a very "personal" question, if you know what I mean. They wasted a question to answer someone what to do because his/her car is in risk of going to the hands of the police? WTF? It makes no sense to me... specially when this Q&A is about the patch and a future DLC...

Anyway, I'm glad they're supporting Undercover, but still I can't believe they will actually fix what they say it will be fixed. I dunno, maybe I'm being too negative, but on the past EA didn't really do anything useful for NFS players, so I can't expect much. If they do fix the framerate issues and if they modify the handling to be better, I may actually play the game again and have more fun.

About the DLC, they should not only add more cars but also more parts to tune the cars...

Now talking about an important part of the Q&A (for me at least) is about the GPS feature on the game.

"I think what I’ve learned over the years is that it’s probably best to give people both options."

Only now did they learn that the best thing is to offer both options? Damn... they take time to realize simple stuff. With both options players can choose to drive freely to the event if they want or then use the GPS and jump to the event immediately.

Unfortunately we couldn't be botheredto add Trophy support on the PS3 for Need for Speed Undercover

fixed

I have a few qs... lol

I heard something about new game modes... does that mean the game will be more fun and less of a grind? lol

^Should be in the list

And fixing frame rate issues on other PCs... will that have a negative effect on my setup which is absolutely fine due to different optimisations? lol

( know I have to send it to him to get an official answer...)

personally, i think they've ruined UC and shouldn't be bothered fixing it and concentrate on making the next game better instead of rushing it again at the last minute, like UC. Just my opinion.
hang on... how fast did you say i went again officer??

Lol UC has some many important problems and people complain that a Bentley is not on the game. lol

Can I ask for a VW Golf III on the next game? :D

It's got an AWD transmission. Handling wise, I'd like to think that it won't be as nimble as its rival GTs, like say, an M6.

I don't know.. The way I see It is like putting a Rolls Royce Drophead into NFS. It doesn't fit into the style of NFS.

It'd be the same thing if you put a Ford Model T in NFS. INSTA-FAIL. [-X
