Fans of Criterion's vehicular vehicleslaughter sim Burnout Paradise
were supposed to receive the title's third major update this coming Thursday
, codenamed "Cagney". The vaudevillian actor
-turned-downloadable content will give Paradisians the opportunity to play
through more than 70 events online in FreeBurn mode -- unfortunately, Paradisians of the Xbox 360 variety will have to wait a bit longer than their PS3 counterparts to enjoy the free update.
Unsurprisingly, the source of the hold-up is the rigorous Xbox Live certification process, which took longer than Criterion had expected. Their new release date for "Cagney"
is the following Monday, July 14 -- though this delay won't affect PS3 owners
. Nor will it affect DS owners, restaurant entrepreneurs, professional poker players, the current Dalai Lama, or the actual James Cagney, who is, in fact, deceased.
