ProStreet Q&A Session: questions sent

Postby Bojan » 15 Jun 2007, 20:22

We got a large pile of emails with questions for the developers of Need for Speed Pro Street and after review, a total of 12 questions were sent to EA to get answered. The list is available on the <a href="http://www.nfsunlimited.net/article/pro_street_june_q_and_a">article page</a> where the answers will be posted as soon as we receive them.

There were also plenty of questions on topics that were not allowed like car lists, customization, game modes,... We will have a Q&A session every month untill release and those topics will come up, so wait untill they do.

A number of questions were also about features that have already been revealed and so that we don't bug the developers with them, I'll answer them instead.


Q: Will the handling of the vehicles feel like NFS Underground, NFS Carbon, or like a simulation game (Forza, Gran Turismo)?
A: Handling is very different to previous NFS games and is definetly more like a simulation (GT or Forza). Driving without assists will be pretty challenging even to a pro in those two games.

Q: Already knowing that they can be repaired with ducttape and what not, how can we fully repair them back to their prestine performance/looks?
A: Yes, it will be possible to repair the car completely, but it will cost more money that using duct tape. It is also said that damage will be a factor, but totalling your car in a race will not cost too much.

Q: Can a car flip over?
A: Of course and I've actually seen it happen!

Q: Hey will NCAA football 08 let you equip your player with towels to hang on there belts? thank you
A: I think you missed the game, the questions are about Need for Speed Pro Street.

Q: Where are the Evos 3 5 7 8, MR, FQ400? And they should really use more japanese cars like the GT Starlet/Glanza, Sylvia sr20vet, GTS Sunny/Pulsar VVl, 20V Levin/Corolla Caldina GTT, Lada........
A: Unfortunatly car list questions are not available this session and I didn't know Lada is a japanese car.

Q: Would there be Car interiors in the game?
A: No, car interiors are not available.


The next Q&A session will be sent to EA on July 15th. Topics will be available at least one week sooner.

10. Does your car engine ever blow up or catch fire from too much over reving or if pressure is put on the engine? (Kaien)

But, you would have been shot down because you can only ask questions related to Physics, Damage, and Smoke.

I tried to select the most interesting and the least specific ones. Surprisingly it wasn't a hard choice since most of the submitted questions were invalid.

Please read the first paragraph of my news post.
The Q&A that follows in the news posts are just a few questions I answered personally, since they weren't eligible to send to developers (obviously we're not gonna ask NFS developers about NCAA - btw the subject of that email was NFSPS).
