Drift jumping in Burnout 3: Takedown

We've got a new video out in the Burnout-Takes section today. It's showing drift jumping in Burnout 3: Takedown. The video is from February 2005 and it resurfaced today when I was having a look at some old Burnout-Takes on my computer. This technique was originally discovered by Xandu back in 2004. In the video you will see that I called it a "speed glitch" this is because that I didn't at that point know that it was actually "drift jumping" I was doing. I would guess that other players have discovered this later on as well.

It's not really very useful for anything since controlling your car is really difficult and the risk of crashing is very high. The video does not show how it is actually done it only shows the speeds that can be achieved. On Island Paradise you can get up to speeds around 450 MPH!

When will we get more information about Burnout Paradise?

We expect that more information about Burnout Paradise will be revealed on this year’s E3 Media & Business Summit in Santa Monica. Around 4000 people are expected to attend to this year’s invitation-only event. This is a major downscale to last year’s 60000 people or 70000 in 2005. The event will be held on July 11-13, 2007. There has been no new information concerning the release date of Burnout Paradise. At this point all dates are pure speculations.
