bit on this and wasn't paying attention. did the "time saver" thing too without noticing. any way to reverse that? was about half way through the game. want to get the stuff on my own.


It's a pain in the ass, but you can. If you delete the Game Data from Burnout Paradise, it'll delete the DLC as well. You'll have to re-download ALL the patches though, which takes 15-20 minutes or so. But it appears to work.

Edit: Caveat - I downloaded the DLC, and then did the above BEFORE I actually started up the game. So I don't know what effect it'll have if you've already started up the game with Timesaver installed, and then saved.

So this price is good until March 31st, right?

I'm going to see if I can't get a $20 PSN card for cheap to make this an even better deal.

The demo is based on the original unpatched game. They've added WAYYYY so much more since then.
More vehicles, day/night cycles, better handling, MOTORCYCLES, more online events, better textures on destructibles and tons of other things.

Okay, since you all have such good things to say about this game I went ahead and bit. Downloaded the game+dlc bundle and remembered not to install the time savers dlc.

Thanks for the info about Timesaver. I am about to get this this weekend and I'll make sure to pay attention and not install it.

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.

If you don't own this game yet you need too. One of the best, if not the best game this generation.

I've been on the fence about this. I don't LIKE racing games as a whole, but I loved Burnout 3. And I have a bunch of PSN money from my Sony Card.
What do you guys think...should I just go for it?

absolutely, but I'm a big burnout fan. had paradise on 360, then got a ps3, bought the Ultimate Bundle for ps3, then bought big surf island on ps3, then my ps3 bit the dust, so I bought big surf island for 360. WORTH IT!

Definitely. Racing is only one part of it. It's more of a driving game, if that makes sense. $30 for the whole thing is a steal.



Anyway, I picked up the DLC bundle today. I wish Paradise Island was a little more spread out but it's still pretty good. The toy cars are pretty fun. Didn't try out anything else yet.

And it's amazing how much this game has changed. I hadn't played it since I got the platinum back in October 2008. Can't wait to see why Criterion does next.

Purchasing all of these packs individually would cost over $100

Anyone on the fence, you can join my gameshare for a fraction of the price. I have started a gameshare group for all the burnout paradise DLC and the Street Fighter IV complete alternate costume bundle. I am asking $6 a share via paypal. Send me a pm if interested, the thread is here http://www.cheapassg...174965&page=450

That's a hell of a lot of content for $6.

If the complete edition that is $30 with the game is ~3GB, how big is the $20 complete downloadable content???

Edit: Nevermind, answered my own question... 700 KB. Don't have to upgrade my hard drive. :)

Lots of love for this game. I played the demo, really tried to like it and not for me. I really tried. Could not stand to have to drive around to get to a race or an event.

I'd never thought of it before but every game would be better with a ROOOOOOOLLING STAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAART!

Still can't decide if I should bite on this, at $20 it's cheaper than picking up the remaining content individually but are Cops & Robbers and the Party addon worth playing in the first place?

OH MY GOD... I'm SO glad you guys bumped this thread. Back when I saw this first show up in the playstation store I totally misread it, this whole time I thought it was for the game itself for $20 not the DLC. Thanks for not letting me miss out on this deal!!!

Burnout DLC/ Street Fighter costumes group is full. Just waiting on last two payments and I will send out detailed information on how to DL your content. There were plenty of requests after the group filled up so I would suggest you guys who didn't get in to make a new group on the PS3 gameshare thread. There would be enough people to do so and you have until the end of the day today to still get the Burnout DLC on sale. Here is the final group:

1. Purkeynator
2. Jadomino
3. Sillentassasin
4. ivanwijaya
5. yohsh

Wow, almost missed this. Will probably pick it up tonight. I wanted to try Big Surf Island, so getting all this extra stuff for a few extra bucks is probably worth it. Thanks!

The demo way back when didn't really sell me so I'm really thinking if I should bite on this or not since I'm sure I'll play this for a week and hen never touch it again...

Guess I have a few hours to decide.

I bought this a few weeks ago after all of the postive comments in this thread. Paradise is a good game, but I still prefer Burnout 3: Takedown. The two main problems I have with Paradise are:

1) Having to drive around to get to a race. I like going through a menu system... so much faster. It would have been nice if they gave you the option to either drive around or go through a menu to choose a race.
2) In Burnout you are always moving incredibly fast, dodging traffic and other road hazards. Adding in trying to figure out where to turn is not fun to me, and I usually end up missing a turn. I know they throw in some visual clues to help you know when to turn, but when I'm in the heat of racing I usually don't notice them. I prefer the standard race tracks with giant arrow signs and hidden short cuts.

Anyways, still a good game and a great price.

Most reviews I read said the game is good but that the demo did suck.

The ad says "until march 31st" Has any one confirmed if this still is available today or if it got pulled down already?
