This year’s first big week of game releases has another entry to watch for with EA today announcing the retail debut of Burnout Paradise for PS3 and Xbox 360. The all-new open-world Burnout is on store shelves now in North America for $59.99 and is due out in Europe come January 28th. A playable demo is also available on the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace if you’d like to go for a test drive first before laying down the 60 bucks for the full game.

“Burnout Paradise is the natural evolution of the franchise as we wanted to give the player full control to create their own personal Burnout experience,” says Alex Ward, Creative Director at EA Criterion. “The city really comes alive when players get together with their friends online, aggressively blasting through the streets at insane speeds to see who is king of the road. The team at EA Criterion couldn’t be more happy and excited to be delivering a truly next generation Burnout title.”
