PS3 Online is under maintenance right now. Servers couldnt handle the masses, and so the system buckled. There is a reason why the PS3 online service is free, take note.
On to first impressions of the game..
- Love Nico (sp?) and all the characters first introduced.
- Driving isn't very responsive, but I guess its due to the cars being a lot heavier this time around. Also hard to turn.
- No loading times WHATSOEVER.
- Love the cell-phone addition.
- Music, amazing.
- Storyline = epic.
Havent jumped into multiplayer yet, but I have a feeling it will pwn.
