1. Please note that the XBOX and XBOX 360 version of Burnout Revenge are different games and are not compatible.
2. Burnout Paradise is the only Burnout game that is available on PC.
There are several ways to do this. Try one of the following.
At count down tap Right Trigger and Left Trigger then HOLD Right Trigger
Now your back wheels should be spinning and smoking. If they're not repeat quickly. Make sure you get them spinning before the count down goes from 2 -> 1.
3, 2, 1 ... GO. On go tap Left Trigger, Right Trigger and A.
Same as above but on GO tap Left Trigger and press Right Trigger and A.
Same as 1 but Just press A on GO. This is the hardest way to do it since it requires perfect timing.
3, 2, 1... GO. On go tap Left Trigger and press Right Trigger. This is also and advanced technique and requires perfect timing.
The save games in Burnout 3: Takedown is tied to the XBox is was created on and cannot be moved to any other XBox. If you want to play Burnout 3: Takedown on another XBox or your XBox 360 you cannot move your save game. You will have to replay the whole game.
Burnout CRASH! will be available on XBOX 360 and PS3 as a downloadable title.
Carnival City (South America) and Red Gate (Eastern Europe) can be downloaded from the links below. Please note that these tracks will only work on the PSP version of Burnout Dominator.
When you have completed 25% and 75% of the game you unlock "Menu damage". It is worth zero Dominator Points. It has an interesting and purely cosmetic effect on the game menu screens. You get a puncture mark in your screen with cracks going out of it.
Yes, you can delete the previous updates as each successive update includes all of the information from the previous updates.
Once you have v 1.7 installed, you can delete 1.6 the Bike pack and Cagney.
The Re-Start option can be found in the Easy Drive menu on the D-Pad, just press right on the D-Pad when you want to re-start the event you are on, or the previous event and select Re-Start.
This applies to the XBOX 360 version of Burnout Paradise.
'Try to go back to the dashboard and reload the game. The problem seems to be intermittent and reloading the game should solve the problem.
Yes, currently there are two boostless cars available for online play in Burnout Paradise.
The Hunter Olympus and the Nakamura Raj-Jin both have a 10 speed rating and no boost. When you enter showtime with boostless cars you get a white boost bar for the duration of the showtime.
The shortest race you can create is 1093 yards.
The Cagney update includes the following new cars:
There are 6 Carbon cars in Burnout Paradise.
Krieger Carbon UBERSCHALL 8 - (completed 2 full sets of online freeburn challenges)
Montgomery Carbon Hawker - (all billboards)
Carson Carbon GT Concept - (all smashes)
Jansen Carbon X12 - (all super jumps)
Kitano Carbon Hydros Custom - (beat all Showtime Road Rules)
Nakmura Carbon Ikusa GT - (beat all Time Road Rules)
A road rule is a online or offline ShowTime record or Time record for a street. To be able to set a road rule the first thing you must do is activate the type of road rule you want to set. There are basically 4 different choices:
The quickest and easiest way to access the map (on XBOX 360) is by pressing the BACK button.
If you have beaten the offline Showtime road rule on East Crawford Drive and didn't get the achievement you also need to beat the online time road rule.
To avoid any problems with this achievement make sure you do the offline Showtime road rule on East Crawford Drive before any other road rules on this street. If you have done any other road rules on East Crawford Drive you also need to beat the online Showtime road rule.
I'm not sure whether or not this is a glitch with the achievement or an inaccurate achievement description. Hopefully this will be fixed in a patch.
If you only want to play Offline and do not want the version 1.6 update, events can not be restarted. If you feel that you will not be able to win the event you can either race to the finish or just stop your car for about 5 seconds and the event will end automatically. Sometimes it might actually pay off finishing the event even though it feels like you will lose. The AI might crash or take a “wrong” turn and you could end up winning.
I you want to cancel any offline event in Burnout Paradise just stop your car. The event will end automatically after about 5 seconds.
If you have beaten the offline time road rule on Watt St. and didn't get the achievement you also need to beat the online time road rule.
To avoid any problems with this achievement make sure you do the offline time road rule on Watt St. before any other road rules on this street. If you have done any other road rules on Watt St. you also need to beat the online time road rule.
I'm not sure whether or not this is a glitch with the achievement or an inaccurate achievement description. Hopefully this will be fixed in a patch.
Edit: This has now been patched.

The following release dates have been announced for Burnout Paradise:
A flat spin can be done on any kind of jumps and ramps. When your car hits the jump or ramp press your E-brake (x button) and push your left stick left or right. This will put your car into a flat spin. The amount of flat spin your car will get depends on your speed when you hit the ramp and how you hit the ramp. A lot of height and airtime might be good but it seems that the spin velocity is more important. The velocity at which the car spins mostly depends on how you hit the ramps and the timing of hitting your e-brake. With practice you should be able to pull off some amazing jumps.
Motor City, Big Surf Beach and Ocean View.

ELO is a rating system is a method for calculating the relative skill levels of players in two-player games such as chess and Go. ELO is not an acronym. It is the family name of the system's creator, Arpad Elo (1903–1992), a Hungarian-born American physics professor.
ELO was originally invented as an improved chess rating system although it is used in many games today. It is also used as a rating system for competitive multi-player play in a number of computer games. For more information on ELO go to wikipedia.org

There are six different “online” leaderboards in Burnout Revenge. Race Ranking is the rank that is your overall ranking and is based on ELO. The higher ELO the lower the rank. Rank 1 is best and rank 75000 is the worst. All the other leaderboards has ranks from 1 to 3000. Burnout Revenge 360 leaderboards are available on the Official Burnout Revenge web site.
1. Your time is not in the top 3000 in the world for that track. If your time is not good enough it will show up as a -. Also not that lap times for player matches (unranked matches) does not register on the online leaderboards.
2. If you know for sure that your time is in the top 3000 your time is not showing because of a bug in Burnout Revenge. This problem affects both the online leaderboards and your best time that is shown when a track is loading. For some players the lap times just disappear or never register at all.
Criterion claims that there are no known bugs with this feature. BurnoutAholics.com can however confirm that there is a bug with this feature and that lap times sometimes just disappear and never show again. If you are lucky your time might have registered on the offline leaderboard.

2. Create a short clip so that it is quick to download. Share it.
3. You need a second gamertag. Create a new silver account or just create a free trial Gold membership.
4. Add yourself as a friend to the second gamertag.
5. Go to 'Friend's Clips' on the secondary gamertag and download your clip.
6. When the clip is finished downloading but before it starts playing press your XBOX Guide button and sign out. You will be thrown back to the Burnout start screen.
7. Sign in again with the secondary profile and repeat from step 5.
8. When you have enough downloads sign in with your primary profile.

This achievement description: "King of the Road! Awarded for getting ahead of all 5 rivals in an online lobby!"
To get the achievement you need to be in a full lobby (6 players). I does not matter if the race is ranked or unranked. You must have at least one takedown on all the 5 players in the lobby (green triangle). If you get this during a race you will only get the achievement when you return to the lobby after all the races have completed. If someone quits out on the way back to the lobby you will not get the achievement.
One important thing to note is that you can get this achievement without racing at all. If you are in a lobby with 4 other players that you have takedowns on you will get the achievement if another player joins (the 5th) and you have takedowns against that player.
No. To get this achievement you must perfect all events in the World Tour. This does not include signature takedowns and the challenge sheets.
