Hot Pursuit update to include convertibles despite One Million Challenge failure

Late last month, the Need for Speed crew issued a challenge: should the Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit launch trailer reach one million views, racers worldwide would get a free three-car title update including convertibles in the forms of a Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible, Lamborghini Murciélago LP 650-4 Roadster and Dodge Viper SRT10 Convertible Final Edition.

The results? Failure. While the launch trailer went from a mere 110,000+ views to a whooping 660,000+ views over the past two weeks, it failed to reach those one million views. But gamers’ efforts have not gone unnoticed as the Christmas-spirited folks at EA have announced that the aforementioned convertibles will be available by the next title update anyway. Think of it as an “early holiday gift.”

Unfortunately, this update only applies to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, as saddening news hit yesterday that the PC one would not be feeling the love of things to come.
