If they announce this.... then his comments about MS are true too, and that will be so fun!
They still wouldn't make any sense. This would at the earliest be a holiday 2015 title, talking about inconsistent framerates when the game is so far from being finished is just nonsense.

Yes this a Sequel to the Underground series, but to make it seem new we had to reboot it, make it more modern add some of the elements of 2012’s NFS most wanted
Fuck off EA. Killing one of your only good franchises like this.

It wouldn't surprise me if it turned out to be Underground since Rivals sales disappointed to the point that EA refused to release a yearly NFS release. The last time that we didn't see a yearly NFS was in 2001 between Porsche Unleashed and Most Wanted 2. Every year from 2002 on we saw a new one. And even more than one at some point. So it makes sense to go back to the one that fans have been wanting for a longtime. That'll instantly secure more sales than Rivals managed to achieve.

The amount of tuning in Underground 2 was ridiculously good. It also had the best gamemodes like Drag and Drift. If this really is happening and it turns out to be good, I'll buy it.

/v/ rumors aren't ever really reliable, but nothing about this seems unbelievable (or really all that interesting, to be honest; it was inevitable that there would be another NFS game and this seems like it would take the series in an expected direction).
Well bloodborne did get leaked their first. Wouldn't be the first time they were right.

I'd love this to bhe true but I don't trust it, i'd happily eat crow for this though. NFS Underground 1 and 2 were two of my favourite ps2 games.

Bloodborne leaked on 4chan.

And there's been some occasional stuff on 4chan that's true as well. (mostly fake though)
Bloodborne leak had actual visual material and not just text.

If the leaker could provide a logo and so on, then sure. But writing some text didn't validate anything.

I also forgot to add, EA is now jumping on the whole Frame rate craze and the game will run at 60 fps
The use of the word craze makes this sound very odd and like it's some kind of fad. I think most games just play better and feel more responsive at 60 and games should really attempt to get to that.

900p on PS4 and 720p on xbone, altough the xbone version is struggling to stay at 60 and MS is pressuring us to lower the Ps4 version to 720p too, EA will probably make that call, so if they say it runs at 1080p 60 fps, its damage control
That seems odd too I could see MS pressuring to get the Xbox One version up to the same level as the PS4 version and providing support like they did with Diablo 3 but I doubt they would be that nasty to force other versions be downgraded.

I also forgot to add, EA is now jumping on the whole Frame rate craze and the game will run at 60 fps on all systems although the Ps4 and Xbone version are a pain in the ass to make it run well, the trailer we will show will look slightly better than the endgame, 900p on PS4 and 720p on xbone, altough the xbone version is struggling to stay at 60 and MS is pressuring us to lower the Ps4 version to 720p too, EA will probably make that call, so if they say it runs at 1080p 60 fps, its damage control
Yeah.... no. Why would EA do this now, they are in good relations with Microsoft and so far it was either 720p vs 900p (BF4) or 900p vs 1080p (DA:I). Every single title from them have better PS4 version, be it resolution or AA/effects.

If this turns out true, I am surprised the last NFS sold so bad that they would consider dropping the franchise. Also, the MS pressuring into downgrading the PS4 version would be absolutely sleezy.
Last but not least, having a 3DS version but no Vita version would be the biggest fuck off I have seen :(

So I've just been fired from Team ICO so I might as well leak this,

Yes we have skipped 5 year with The Last Guardian, Sony was at first contemplating to cancel the game after many hours were wasted on the PS3 version, now as a last ditch effort they gave us more time (and horrendous working hours) to work on the PS4 version.

Yes this The Last Guardian as announced, but to make it seem new we had to reboot it, make it more modern add some of the elements of Rime
If you don’t believe me, at this year PSX we will announce the remake.
This is gonna be the new 'Japanese Culture' GAF meme, isn't it.

A lot of people across various boards have been asking for a NFSU3 for what seems like ages now. Just Google Underground 3 and see the amount of talk and requests.

Ghost Games did say a while back that they would be making the game that everyone is asking for....Underground 3?

Who knows,but I would absolutely love for this to be true. A modern "grown ups" version of Underground would be fantastic..

I don't believe any of the specifics mentioned in this post; it's written as flame bait.

Underground was my all time favorite NFS, and I'd be BEYOND delighted to get a new sequel, though.

Sounds like someone is making things up with stuff that happened lately.

Wouldn't mind seeing a game like that but the resolution talk just seems like a tale out of the ass.

I wouldn't be surprised if a new Need for Speed is announced and it happens to be a game called Underground. Outside of this year, the brand is usually annual. EA has also be branding newer games with the titles of older entries. That said, I really doubt this 4chan rumour has any validity.

NFS: Underground and Underground 2 are two of my favorite racing games, absolutely loved them. While I'm excited about a reboot of the series, I was so disappointed with NFS:MW, that I have no desire to buy another NFS game again.

EA did a Hot Pursuit reboot.

They also did a Most Wanted reboot.

EA loves rebooting this franchise, I guess.
Don´t understand how you can "reboot" a racing game.

It´s not that there is any noteworthy story or anything ..

Can you even make threads about 4Chan rumors ??
If this is true, you know the shitstorm it will cause, and i dont mean the game release but the forcing of parity.

From some stuff I heard when I was doing work experience at Ghost UK (before they got shut down) it wouldn't surprise me if this were true.

Lets break down what he says:

- EA will announce a new NFS game at TGA.
- The official name is Underground: Need For Speed
- Some of the elements of 2012’s NFS most wanted.
- The customization can be broken down to Body kits, wide bumper, spoilers, Rims, spinners
- Takedowns
- Unlocks are done through the reputation you gain in the city
- 60 fps on all systems
- 900p on PS4 and 720p on xbone
- MS is pressuring them to lower the PS4 version to 720p too

If he gets everything right then he must be right about the MS part too, right? Now we wait.
