This is interesting. Looks like Electronic Arts is going to be putting the console hit Burnout Paradise
on the PC. Not only that but it's going to be rebuilt specifically for the PC. Don't know what that entails yet but I'm wondering if this won't be another test bed for their new copy protection scheme
with SecuRom. With all the peripherals available for the PC, you can build a pretty kicking rig to race around the city.
