Burning Up or Burning Out?

According to IGN.com, a new installment in the Burnout series, subtitled ‘Crash’, is coming to a console near you.  The development of this game was discovered when the Australian Classification Board rated it PG.

For those who don’t know, Burnout is a series of racing games that is known for its high speeds, crazy “take-downs”, and most importantly, the infamous Crash Mode.  Crash Mode has become so infamous because its sole purpose is to crash your car into traffic and have everyone else run into you.  This of course, causes a big ass pile-up and an even bigger traffic jam.  While the Burnout series is probably my favorite racing game, there is one thing that concerns me about this announcement.

Gamerbytes, another video games website, stated that early ratings with little prior announcement are often downloadable games.  This speculation worries me because I would like a new fully-fledged Burnout game, not just a dinky little download game with limited options.  Again, this part is only speculation, but I still hope that it will not turn out to be true.  To my knowledge, there is no set release date for Burnout Crash, but definitely keep an eye out for one.
