When does Need for Speed Come Out?

there has been much hype going around with the release of Need for Speed, with them doing demos at apple stores (none near me, not that i would go, haha), and i just havent heard a release date, i would really like to get it before christmas to show it off. Does anybody know the release date?

try reading through this thread here before starting a whole new one please : http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=1278

the guy from EA CraigLaw says:

Actually guys, NFS won't be coming out until next year. Release dates slip all the time for one reason or another, just part of the industry.

I've been posting around here about my hands on today @ the Apple Store event in LA. Let me tell you, the game looked and played great.

You can read some more about this and my day at the Apple store here:

Every platform needs it's "Duke Nukem Forever."

NFS is going to be the one for iPhone/Touch. I think I'll pass and pick up Fast & Furious instead.

Guys, Ferrari GT is AMAZING.

SILKY SMOOTH framerate, GREAT graphics, AWESOME cars, and a STORY mode.

The story mode is cool be because you can check all your email and stuff and then get invited to races and other stuff like that. It will be VERYYY hard for NFS to beat Ferrari.

Had NFS come out sooner, maybe I would have bought it, but seeing as how most of EA's games have been disappointments, I 'm not buying anything from them until there are reviews!

Ya, ummm no. I'll be sticking with NFS, thanks though. I was already sold, but after reading CraigLaw's early impressions, it's sure to kick the snot out of Ferraro GT.
