Electronic Arts have confirmed that a playable demo for Need for Speed Hot Pursuit will be available shortly for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
In the Need for Speed Hot Pursuit demo, players will be able to chase as a cop in the Dark Horse Hot Pursuit event, speeding through the coastal highway and mountainous ridges of Seacrest County. At the heart of the demo is a social network called Autolog that tracks cop and racer performances while playing solo and uses those statistics to generate fierce competition between friends. Once players add a friend to their Need for Speed friends list, the second event will unlock called Roadster's Reborn, where gamers can compete as racers to set the best times. When they download and play the demo they will also earn 500 bounty award points in the full game for both Cop and Racer careers**. Accruing bounty will allow players to unlock events and exotic cars and progress through their careers in the full game.
Unfortunately however, it looks like PC gamers will miss out entirely as gaming blog BigDownload have reportedly confirmed with EA PR that no PC demo has been planned at all - a disappointing fact that they point out is a rarity for the 20 year history of the Need for Speed franchise.

The Need for Speed Hot Pursuit demo is due on October 27 for Xbox Live Marketplace and October 28 for PlayStation Network in Australia. The retail game is due on shelves on November 18 2010 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Lame, I remember playing the demo of the first version, and renaming the car art files so I could drive any car.

Must be a s*** console port if they wont even demo it. After the NFSW beta sucking ass I can't say I have high hopes for this title, they're milking NFS too much.
