Exotic automakers have been lining up like their customers to get their supercars onto the latest driving simulators. If you own an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, the excitement has been palatable. If you prefer to get your horsepower kicks in front of your computer, however, you've probably been feeling a little left out as the lists of new cars for games like Forza 2 and the upcoming GT5 Prologue have been flowing like octane. But we've got good news for racing enthusiasts on any platform, as Electronic Arts has announced a new update for its Need for Speed: ProStreet game.

ProStreet is the eleventh installment of the popular Need for Speed series, with versions available for Xbox, Playstation and PC. The latest bit of DLC (downloadable content) is anticipated to include two new tracks and no fewer than 16 new cars. Among them: the Bugatti Veyron. The street-racing theme of the game seems an odd choice for Bugatti to grant its first license, but opens the question as to whether we'll see the Veyron appear in other games soon. Meanwhile the Veyron won't be the only new exciting piece of virtual machinery streaming to a system near you, as the expansion pack is also anticipated to include such mouthwatering wheels as the Aston Martin DBR9, Audi R8, Koenigsegg CCX and McLaren F1, just to name a few.

Check out the video after the jump to see the Veyron on the ProStreet customizing screen, cycling through even more options than Bugatti's own online configurator.

      hmmm im pretty sure you can already buy a veyron through the Playstation store for NFS: Prostreet.
      • 7 Years Ago
      FYI, Prostreet isnt really about street racing. Its pretty much closed circuits. The older games were more about street racing.

      Will it only allow you to choose high speed ovals and lock you out of actual road course tracks?
      • 7 Years Ago
      uh..wasn't this released like months ago?
        • 7 Years Ago
        yeah I've had it for a while now!

      I game back to Pacman and Atari, owned a large gaming website and still play video games 3+ hours a day and I have a real problem with these games. You guys thinking your driving REAL racing games should know better, no one has it right yet. You can smash into anything in many games and carry on. The vehicle damage is unrealistic. Some games are promising it, but they have since day 1 and never really do it, only add "some realism" which is not realism. Usually this involves some damage to the car, occasionally meaning the car can fail at some point. Screw that, deploy the air bags, game over, try again. I think a driving game that actually took some skill, instead of knowing where to cut corners and smash things without much slowdown, decided the winner. Computers are in our cars everywhere, now get more car in our computers.

        well if you want a completely REAL racing game then you will have to try REAL LIFE don't you.
        but there is a huge difference between playing a simulation racing game or a crappy NFS. noobs would probably crash out in the first corner in a sim game.

      Too bad Prostreet is utter crap. The cars don't feel like cars, and the game is so saturated with advertising I'm surprised the game isn't free. I rented it for a week, and as a past fan of NFS, (Most Wanted and Porsche Unleashed were the best ones yet) I was seriously disappointed. I'll wait until the Veyron appears in a more realistic game to drive it.

      And I'll also agree with the previous posters saying it isn't about street racing- it's all on closed courses in this game.

      umm you were able to buy these cars from the PS store the week the game came out.
      ive had the CCX, DB9, S2000 GT3 package for since it was avaiable.

      this game is AWESOME of the wii. Yes the cars are crap at first (everything stock is crap), but latter on in the game 7000 point drifts in my cts-v are common. As are 1st wins in the evo 9.
      • 7 Years Ago
      ummm... cool?!

      somehow this car doesn't fit the closed circuit racing of Prostreet, it would be a lot better off in Most Wanted (the last good NFS imho). Atleast this will help to draw some of the little kids that prefer wrecking to racing away from my beloved Forza 2.

        i honestly don't think the veyron would be much of an addition to FM2. the latest dlc gave us the Ferrari F50GT which dominates the unlimited class on every track except for the speedway, which is the only track a veyron would have a chance against a purpose built homologation car such as the F50GT, CLK GTR, or S7.
        • 7 Years Ago
        nice, now kids can rice out the veyron.... I can see them putting the veyron in FM2 but not in ProStreet
      • 7 Years Ago
      thanks but no thanks. i'll stick to REAL racing games like GTR2
      • 7 Years Ago
      I love racing and being able to design and trick out the cars, however, more of a fan of street racing than closed circuit.

      Not a fan of ProStreet - I agree with JD - a video game shouldn't be so loaded with advertising.
