NfS Carbon demo, TotemBall
Here's a bit of 360 news to start your day. First, EA has released a demo for Need for Speed Carbon, the racer sequel that concentrates on Project Gotham-like drifting. It's 1.06 GB however, so make sure you've cleared any unwanted files before installing. A much more reasonable download is the 40 MB TotemBall, which was supposed to be released with the (required) Vision camera, but has only just been made available on Live Arcade. Players use gestures to guide Pterry the Pturtel to musical totems. Meanwhile, the developers at Strange Flavour have told Eurogamer that two more Vision games are in the works. One of them will use gestures like TotemBall's, but the other will be played more conventionally. The former game should be out in early 2007. To tide us over, map packs and other downloadable content for TotemBall should come at an indefinite point in the future.
