We wanted to kick off our Mobile World Congress 2011 coverage with a blast, and there’s no better way to do that than with the first ever hands-on demo of Need For Speed Underground by Electronic Arts running on a BlackBerry PlayBook. Along with Tetris, the full version of Need for Speed Underground will come pre-loaded with the BlackBerry PlayBook (for free!).
Fellow blogger and Director of Developer Relations, Mike Kirkup, provides an excellent demonstration of the game and the performance of the BlackBerry PlayBook while playing (and winning!) a race in the video above. Some additional points on the game you should know: you can upgrade and purchase additional cars; Need for Speed Underground was built natively using the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK; there are multiple driving modes; it’s free!
