EA has two console Need for Speed titles in the works

It’s already been confirmed that Burnout developer Criterion has its hands in the Need for Speed franchise. But if Burnout’s fast pace and twisted steel isn’t your thing, don’t worry — Electronic Arts has confirmed that it has not one but two Need for Speed titles in the works. 

Holiday of 2010 will see the release of Criterion’s Need for Speed title, referred to by EA Chief Operating Officer John Schappert on today’s financial call as an action title. Early 2011 (January-March) will see the release of a second Need for Speed title, this one a simulation title, possibly a follow up to last year’s Need for Speed: SHIFT.

You can can play both titles, no one’s stopping you. But if you had to choose, what would you prefer? A Need for Speed simulation title or a Need for Speed action title?
