Default Split/Second

I missed the news about the release on this game. Anyone thinking of getting it?

I preordered it, however that was before I heard about Blur and now I am torn. I played the demo for Split/Second last week and it was really good. Its all about timing and using the environment to knock back your opponents to win the race, causing a lot of really cool explosions. Any game where you can land a plane (drop a building, topple a tanker ship, etc) on your fellow racers gets bonus points in my book. What I saw of Blur though makes it look like a grown up version of Mario Kart and that is really compelling, too.

I may end up getting both in the end but if I had to choose between the two it would be very difficult. Anyone out there try both the demos for Split/Second and Blur? Which one did you like better?

Some Blur videos:

Wasn't that 4X4's I saw at the end of that video? Can you drive / trick them out too?

Looks like Need For Speed and Mario Kart had a baby!

I just do not have the spare time for more games at the moment this one like so many more will have to go on the back burner for now.

Good links though ty.
