"We are proud to present EA with a GT Diamond Award for their incredible work on Need for Speed ProStreet," said Shane Satterfield, editor in chief, GameTrailers. "With quality titles like Crysis and Need for Speed ProStreet, it is no surprise that EA was the first publisher to have two titles that really resonated with our hardcore gaming audience."
"Receiving the GT Diamond Award is a real accomplishment," said Larry LaPierre, Vice President at Black Box, developer of Need for Speed. "GameTrailers visitors represent our core fan base and ten million views illustrates why Need for Speed is one of the world’s most successful video game franchises."
In Need for Speed ProStreet, gamers must prove they have the racing mettle to dominate the competition. Design and customize cars, face-off in iconic locations and battle in four distinct racing styles — grip, drag, drift and the all-new speed challenge. Danger and consequence have also been taken to another level with a new procedural damage system that will have cars scratching, denting and crumpling differently with every driving mistake. Need for Speed ProStreet is the realization of the intense rivalry, raw power, and visceral aggression that embodies street racing culture.
Need For Speed ProStreet joins a short list of distinguished games to have received the GT Diamond Award. Other honorees include Activision’s Call of Duty 4(R): Modern Warfare(TM), Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed(R), Konami’s Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots(R) and Nintendo of America for Super Smash Bros.(R) Brawl.
