New NFS: Carbon graphics

EA's sure-fire Christmas number one screeches up the tarmac in new 360 screens

In preparation for the immense cash-raking that will no-doubt commence post-release, EA has released eight new Need for Speed: Carbon screenshots, showing off the fancy motors you could soon be pimping on your Xbox 360 or any other console of choice.

In case you missed it, rickety canyon racing is the hook in Carbon, rival-gang race-offs determining which city territory your crew nabs and who ends up plummeting their Citroen Saxo off a cliff edge.

You can read our latest PS3 preview here, and look for more content (including a very special Carbon competition) in the next few weeks running up to its release, on all formats excluding PS3 obviously.
