Need for Speed Hot Pursuit races onto the PlayStation 3 today asking the vital question: are you a racer or are you a cop? That’s the choice you’ll make when you get behind the wheel and start tearing up the streets of Seacrest County.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit PlayStation 3 players will experience the thrill of the chase and the rush of the escape as they play through full careers as both a cop and a racer solo or connected. The blistering speeds, brutal busts and heart-stopping getaways are all connected via Need for Speed Autolog.

This network not only connects friends for epic head-to head pursuits and races, but also enables players to compare performances and stats, thereby setting the stage for the ultimate in friendly competition. I can tell you from playing here in the office that Autolog will bring out the competition in you – even if you’re not a competitive person. Every day we’re amazed at the new times people set on each of the events. You think it can’t be beaten…until it is. Finding the right combination of shortcuts, nitrous useage, and bust strategies is the key to achieving the best time.

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit also provides you with exciting online game modes: Hot Pursuit is the exciting hunter vs. hunted mode where players can play as cops or racers. Interceptor mode is the ultimate head to head battle as one racer faces off against one cop. Finally, you have the traditional race mode. Pick your racetrack and car and win the race!

In addition to your racing and chasing skills, you’ll have access to weapons to help you including: spike strips, jammers, EMPs, helicopters, road blocks and more.

With its vast open-world, Seacrest County is the perfect place to get your fix for high-speed racing (or chasing) action. There are several diverse locales throughout coast, desert, forest, and mountain with unique features to provide each side of the law with certain benefits and challenges. One strong suggestion we would make is to drive around the county a few times on your own before taking part in any pursuits. Get familiar with the beautiful scenery and its many hidden shortcuts.

Please join us for a Game with Developer session on Saturday, November 20th from 11AM – 1PM PST. Put your driving skills to the test against the Criterion developers and see how you match up! Visit the Hot Pursuit website for more details.

What’s going on with the online?

Bought the game today (Pal version UK) and I can’t connect to the EA servers. It just comes up with ‘connection failed’

I’m logged into PSN just fine and I have downloaded the online pass.

What’s the score?

Just found out via another forum that according to Sony there is an issue connecting to EA servers at the moment for folks with Virgin Media (like me)

Well, that’s just great!

I just bought the new Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Limited Edition game for Playstation 3. But when i try do download my content, it rejects me.

I enter the passcode from the box, it accepts and i get to download the new content. But when i press download i get error 80710102.

Does anybody know whats wrong ? The internet works fine. I’m logged into PSN and i can browse the store without any problems. Just cant get the pass thing to work, ergo no online gaming. 2 day trial works fine so i dont understand whats wrong.

Next time a play with the devs event is announced, make sure the devs are actually going to play.

We were informed that we had to add the PSN’s posted on a sign in Home’s Gamer’s Lounge to play with the devs.

I added dev4, who was in the room with me. He had no interest in playing with anyone and just wanted to stay in Home and answer questions, he never added me.

I tried the others. Dev 3 added me, but wasn’t playing either.

Playing with the devs was advertised, it didn’t happen.
