Need for Speed: Prostreet
EA Announces First Need for Speed ProStreet Community Race Day
Written By

Well guys, time to schedule a Blockbuster appointment or run to your nearest game retailer. EA has recently announced the scheduled date for the Community Race Day 1.

This may not seem like a big deal, but if you're an achievement hound who goes for the full 1000/1000 in a game, you MUST attend this event as it will ONLY be available on this particular day!

"On December 19th Castrol SYNTEC presents the first official Need for Speed ProStreet Community Race Day. Put your skills to the test against other Need for Speed ProStreet players across the globe. You'll have the chance to play against developers of the game, win cool prizes, and unlock a special achievement only available during this Race Day! Be sure to join on December 19th to see if you can become the Castrol SYNTEC Race Day Street King!"

Seems weak that this one day will have an achievement. What if you buy the game after this date?

That sucks - any idea what the actual achievement is?

Peace

If you buy the game after the date you're screwed. Just like when you buy any other games after certain servers are shut down.

According to the achievement, all you have to do is:
"Awarded for participating in the Community Race Day 1. Visit www.NeedforSpeed.com for details"

Most likely race online during the 19th and the achievement will be yours. However I'm not positive. I'll try shooting EA an e-mail and see if I can get a better answer.

Yeah....i think it is stupid to have this achievement available only on this day. It should be like a weekend event where there is a day 1 and day 2...and it should happen often for those people that do not have the game

Why on a wednesday why not a friday saturday or sunday. Seems pretty stupid considering the fact that more people play online on the weekends. F or example i dont even play my 360 on the weekday because i have way to much hw, but w/e

Thanks for the announcement guys, but this is one crap pile from EA that I'll be passing on. They're just getting more rediculous with their NFS achievements. My money is staying in my pocket and my game card is staying clear of ProStreet. Good luck to the rest of you ;)

It wouldn't be so bad if they made enough race days to give everyone a chance to compete but choosing one in the middle of the week and making it a requirement for an achievement is just stupid. They need to just leave achievements to in game and online rewards and not "Wait for our race then try to connect to our down servers due to the amount of people and good luck getting the achievement then".
EA is all screwed up these days.

That sucks. Microsoft should enforce a rule where an achievement can be gained at any time. If not, then have regular scheduled events. I hate one-off achievements.

Damn EA. When will you learn to listen to your audience. This is exactly why if I ever want achievements from EA games I'm merely going to rent them. Why waste good money on a stupid company that produces substandard games with no improvement year on year.

EA Exec: Lets patch this game we released with lots of bugs in!
EA PR: Excellent! We'll fix bugs, then stick in some new ones to keep everyone playing till we fix it completely.
EA Exec: Never mind that, lets release exactly the sam

PS I also notice on needforspeed.com that the news about this race day is only on the US/Canada portion of the ProStreet section - not in the UK one. So (knowing EA) this achievement will only be available in the US/Canada locations.

Why not screw everyone over by cutting the 2007 game servers, like you did with the 06 ones (e.g. Tiger Woods 06)? Surely they're cutting into your profit margins too?

Hi, my names EA. I love my money. I love your money. I'll sell you crap to get your m

I hate EA for these achievements (moderator challenge, race day...) and the one which are glitched. I love the nfs series, but i think i'll boycott this one.

Microsoft should make achievement rules.. Every game should contain 1000 achieveable points, everyone can earn them (no days where its only possible to get it) and not points like "2 points for that" and 17 points for that..

i was led to belive that all retail games sold on the 360 had to have 1000gs from launch or by free DLC...so everyone who buys this after the 19th can only ever get 985gs..i understand that this happens on older titles when they close the online server but this is IMO a total rip off as so many people will be getting this for christmas..

on a side note all the people who get this should return it unopened and get a full refund ( spend you cash on THQs Juiced 2 ) its a much better game and far

Was planning on getting this in a while but after only noticing this today I just went out and got it. Bit daft the way they have done this should be like a race week or a few race days spread out over a bit of time incase you miss the first one.

I know this is an old thread but I played this game on PC. I switched to xbox a while back and bought NFS prostreet. Coolest NFS next to carbon. I really like it. But I totally agree with microsoft putting up rules for achievements. And while they are at it, make seperations for gold member multiplayers and SP achievements. That way there are more ways to get 100% of the achievements etc. This is just the crap they did with Fable 2 or 3 where you had to buy Pub games to get the final achievement even though it wasn't included in the original game. It's like: jump of a cliff and survive for 100g because we tell you to!
I wished they had the community achievements so, that it could be obtained every weekend. OR they should like have an achievement for playing the game a half a year from now. That's kinda cool right?
