Need for Speed Most Wanted is available for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360™, Xbox® videogame system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube™, Nintendo DS™, Game Boy® Advance, PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) system, and PC.

Combining the thrill of illicit street racing and tuner customization with over-the-top strategic police pursuits, players can customize their rides that include a wide range of vehicles from the BMW M3, Porsche Cayman S and Lamborghini Gallardo to Mazda RX-8, Ford Mustang GT and Mitsubishi Eclipse. Need for Speed Most Wanted features more than 36 of the hottest cars so that gamers can race in style.

I'm checking tomorrow - hopefully Canada will have it the same time as the States. BTW, do you have an account on the forums on Spawn.com?

The Black Edition is out of stock though... If you're planning to buy it, plan it in 2 weeks time unless you're going for the normal one. :)

There were limited stocks for the first batch of the Black Edition compared to the normal edition. The next stock of Black Edition will arrive in 1-2 weeks time.

wtf the 17th? I had this on the 15th. I walked right into EB Games (still EB Games in Canada) asked for Black Edition for PC, and I've been playing it for days. It's FREAKING awesome, and runs great on my computer.

NEVER! Even if MW has more graphics, better cars, and more, NFSU2 has been the main step that led into MW now. But i feel the theme is really the same, needs D-I-S-T-I-N-C-T-I-O-N. :lol:
And the wrong thing is that is only avariable for high tech pcs... so if u ever get it, it will mean updating ur pc (here's were savings are spent :lol: )

DOES ANYONE THINK MW IS VERY MUCH THE SAME SO AS NOT TO BUY IT????
