Retailer Leaks Dead Space 3 and NFS: Most Wanted 2 Hints

A since removed BT Games Product Page offered preorders for Dead Space 3, the not-yet-announced third installment in the horror/shooter series (thanks Strategy Informer). The dust barely settled on this they then popped up a preorder page for Need for Speed: Most Wanted 2, a seeming reveal of another unannounced title. This South African retailer is becoming quite notorious for loose lips, as they have previously exposed plans for the Jak & Daxter HD Collection and multiplayer support in Mass Effect 3 though premature announcements.

Criterion was recently looking to fill positions for an "open-world" racing game. I wonder if it's Most Wanted 2?

I hope not. I wasn't a big fan of Hot Pursuit's physics or damage system. Having a single health pool instead of locational damage is dumb, especially when all you have to do to "bust" illegal racers is to wipe out their health bars. You end up just bumping them repeatedly until they die, rather than trying to pin them down and prevent them from escaping. As for physics, while Most Wanted had pretty arcadey physics, the physics in Hot Pursuit were much more so. I like to have a balanced ratio between arcade and sim physics, like in Porsche Unleashed.

On a side note, why isn't Most Wanted available on digital distribution? For that matter, why isn't any pre-Undercover entry in the series available online? Is it because EA already shut down the multiplayer servers? If so, what happens when they inevitably shut down the servers for the games that are available? Will they pull them from distribution?
