Well.. I am here to tell you this is awesome news as far as I am concerned. Got the info from a reliable source on always game. The special stages added to the game include all the tracks from Daytona 2 and Scud race (also known as super GT).. although they will be innerconnected as in the outrun games rather than looping as in their original arcade versions. It is also supposed to have the original outrun as an unlockable in addition a mission mode with over 100 challenges to master and Live support for 8 players. There may be more hidden, but this is plenty for me.
