    What the devil is a 'hot-seat style of gameplay'?

    That is.. Really pathetic.

    Considering the lack of local multiplayer, anyone who wants to play this with friends (Locally) is already going to be doing this, surely?

    Presumably the party game thingy is more like the original Burnout games Crash mode? I can't imagine swapping controllers as you're driving around the city...

    Will the pc version be like the initial console version or the get the extra content as well?
    Why hotseat as multiplayer? from my limited knowledge about consoles they all allow connecting more than one controller at once, so it shoudnt really be a problem to have more than person playing at once.

    because having an update for hotseating, I assume is no where near as complicated/time consuming as making an update for split screen multiplayer.
