IGN has posted an interview with Burnout Paradise's Producer Hamish Young.
"The online component of Burnout is really cool. You can use the EasyDrive system to seamlessly go online by inviting friends or by joining another game. And when I mean seamless, I mean that it all happens while you are driving and in control of the car. You can be mid air doing a crazy jump and connect online at the same time if you want. You and up to 7 other people can join together in the same city and yes, you are simply cruising around. The host player can serve up cooperative challenges or competitive events from his EasyDrive system or everyone can simply compete for Today's Best while cruising. The focus is on making it easy to have fun with your friends with no waiting around. We also have the Mugshot system which makes the social online experience even cooler. When you take someone down, it takes their picture and sends it to you so you can see their reaction."
