I originally saw it on Kotaku, but I've since confirmed (and bought it) myself.

PSN (and it appears, only PSN - not sure why 360 owners are shafted) is offering ALL the DLC for Burnout Paradise for $20 until March 31st. If you don't have the game, they have a bundle for that too, for $30 (Game + ALL DLC).

Considering that the DLC itself runs ~$67, and the game is another $20 on top of that, this is a excellent deal.

Too bad I bought all of it individually. Awesome game but it is 2 years old and I have no idea how many people play it online. Still a great deal tho!

That's an awesome deal. Put the prices in the title though, some people are lazy/cranky.

hmm, I remember selling my copy long ago. It's probably better to buy the full game from PSN so that it runs completely from the hard drive.
I'll sleep on it, thanks.

Never played the original (nor any of the DLC obviously) so this is a good deal for me!

Started DL and off to work; +1 game when I get back :D

Let's say I have the game disc-based - if I buy the game + DLC will it run off my old save?

I used a $10 promo code to order the 360 version of this game on Amazon, but it hasn't shipped yet. I think I'll cancel the order and pick this up instead, seems like an overall better deal.

My understanding is that it will not. :(

I'd try it if it were cheaper. Bascially I just want the new area but not all the secret cars and less important stuff. I mean the pack is all-inclusive right? That's what it sounded like when I read it.


The pack includes ALL of the released DLC for the game:

Party Pack ($10?)
Big Surf Island ($13)
Cops & Robbers ($10)
Toy Cars ($13)
Boost Specials ($8)
Legendary Cars ($8)
Timesaver (unlocks all cars in-game) ($5)

(I believe those prices are correct - I'm trying to remember what I saw this morning. Toy cars & Cops & Robbers might be swapped, but everything else should be correct.)

I have all but 1 of the trophies (missing bike license) and it is such an amazing game. Also one of the best looking games this gen, it is absolutely gorgeous and a blast to play. Highly recommended.

Even just Big Surf Island, Cops & Robbers and the Party Pack is a good deal for $20. Getting all of the extra cars on top of that (especially the Extreme Hot Rod and Hawker Mech) is icing.

EDIT:: Nevermind, you'll have to make a new save.

I occasionally do, and there are still people playing. As info on this price decrease gets out, we may see more people playing.

This is one of my favorite PS3 games. First game I platinumed.

Does the sale for the complete game download last until march 31st as well or is that date just for the DLC pack sale?

I might as well get this all-inclusive pack and play the game again. Thanks OP.

That game+DLC bundle is extremely appealing to me. I like that the deal is until March 31st. It'll give me sometime to think. I've played the game at a friend's and loved it, but I've been buying games like crazy recently.
thanks for the information OP

I've already gotten $145 worth of Amazon gift cards from here. Give it a shot, there's nothing to lose. It's just a search engine so no effort required either.

I want to get all the dlc for $20 but don't wanna pay that alone so if anyone wants to help out and join a share group for this on ps3 i'm for it. I already have the game and enjoy playing it online. Finding people to play with online is no problem and this game still holds replay value.

Ran into a rather major issue. I decided to go with the $30 everything + game bundle and hand down my disc copy to my brother. After loading it the game prompts me to start a new game again. I've got over 30 hours dumped into Burnout and 81% completion. I'm more then a little pissed over this. Hopefully EA will patch this. Buyer beware.

I just platinum-ed this last night, and the trophy for ps3 i had the hardest time getting was 7 other players in the wildcat stadium. Although, there were about 40-65 online games to join (just as a heads up of how many people still play.) Not a bad deal if you want all the bonus stuff, i'm still more of the "own the disc" type and am happy with my copy

Shit. I already got 975 achievement points on the 360 version, and I game shared this with my friend on the PS3, and have about 90% of the trophies for that save as well. Time to get back into it.

That was my most difficult one too ... I would join games where the leader would start that challenge, and then cancel it after a while.

I ended up starting up my own games as the leader, and if you run constant challenges, people who want to do the challenges will stay in your game ... then you do the Wildcat Stadium and usually people will follow along.
