Only one way to drive Burnout: DANGEROUSLY. Force traffic into your opponent's
path and risk a head-on collision to secure a win!
Realtime 5.1 channel Dolby Digital audio—to bring the game alive: Hear
the roar of the traffic and the crunching-metal of the crashes surround you! The power of the Xbox converts the sound and
music data on the fly. True 5.1 audio - most Xbox titles don't use the center speaker of a 5.1 setup properly, Burnout does!
HDTV and Progressive Scan support—for users with high-definition display
or digital TV: Burnout is crisp and interlace-free when displayed on a High-Definition TV at 480p (NTSC version only)!
Bump mapping on all of the road surfaces and 'Phong' specular lighting: Bump
mapping is a great Xbox-specific effect—this makes the road surface look more bumpy and detailed - just like in real
Per pixel specular lighting: Another great Xbox effect - this means that
light falls on the road in a more realistic fashion—drive into the sun and see the glare coming off the road!
True volumetric shadows on the environment and other vehicles: This means
that the shadows in the game "fall" realistically on the environment and other vehicles as you drive past them—this
makes the game more realistic-looking.
Realtime cubic environment mapping: The body of the car realistically reflects
the environment in which it is driving—again this makes the game more realistic looking.
Improved deformation model: Making the crashes and damage look more realistic
True "Phong" per pixel lighting: The power of the Xbox allows a more accurate
representation of the interaction of light and surfaces.
Use of the in-built hard disk: This has allowed us to further speed up game
loading times for the fastest Burnout load on any system.
High resolution: Burnout runs at 640x480 resolution for incredibly sharp
and detailed graphics.
Anti-aliasing: Resulting in a more stable and sharp display with absolutely
no shimmering or flickering.
