I'm not one for racing games (unless you count mario kart) but this game looks pretty freaking fun.

Coming out this week, apparently. Reports say 800 points ($10), but not confirmed yet. Looks like it will be a port of the OR2 SP arcade game. So it has the SP courses, but not the OR2 courses. I'm getting this second hand from others - I have never played these two home ports - sorry if the info doesn't make sense.

So what's the difference between this and Out Run 2006: Coast 2 Coast?

From what I understand C2C was actually two games: Outrun 2 and Outrun 2SP. This XBLA release is just O2SP and does not include the original O2 tracks.

I got it. It's only the C2C tracks. It's got the additional features from SP like the slipstreaming and tuned cars but doesn't have the original courses, which is a shame but not a huge loss.

It does suffer from quite a lot of slowdown when there are a few cars on the track. That is very disappointing considering that the graphics aren't much upgraded from the xbox port (which incidentally didn't have any slow down).

I heard that OutRun is one of those Xbox games that do not run very well on a Xbox 360. That could explain it.

Man I really need a wheel for this game XD

I see that its out on the PSN as well, just Europe only at this point. Maybe I will just get the PS2 game.

^I have the PC version and it's totally worth it. I may write a review later on.
