Come this fall in the US, Burnout Paradise, which has already dropped in price to $29.99 for both PS3 and Xbox 360 at retail stores, will also become available in digital download form via the PS3 PlayStation Store at the same low price. Burnout Paradise‘s PSN release will include all of the game updates released to date and arrive just in time for the next big update that’s scheduled to add trophy support and motorcycles. Kudos to Criterion Games for not only exploring new avenues to get Burnout Paradise into gamers’ hands, but also continuing to enhance the game so extensively post-launch without greedily nickel-and-diming its fans.

Fiona Sperry, Studio Manager for Criterion Games, said, “Our mission at Criterion is to provide the most entertaining gaming service possible. In order to do that, it’s key that we have the ability to deliver content to players in ways that work for them – through quick and easy download or via traditional bricks and mortar. For us, the fun is in playing the game with friends and constantly discovering new surprises in the world. Download packs with meaningful new gameplay are the perfect way for us to keep entertaining fans and keep them playing, even months after launch.”
