Burnout Revenge lets gamers rip through rush hour traffic and lay waste to scores of rubbernecking roadhogs in an over-the-top scene of vehicular mayhem. In addition to tricked out new race, crash and road rage modes, Burnout Revenge takes the series' blistering speed and spectacular destruction to dizzying new heights with an all-new Revenge mode, challenging gamers to battle the clock and unleash their frustrations on rush hour traffic.

“Golf is a really tough sport for interacting and getting to know your fans,” explained Gulbis. “But the Game with Fame program gives me the opportunity to kick back and actually get to know some of the people who are out there rooting for me!”

On the greens, the 23-year-old Gulbis has made quite a name for herself. Currently in her fifth season on the LPGA Tour, she has recorded six top-10 finishes and is currently ranked in the top-15 on the money list. Named Golf Digest’s Most Improved LPGA Player in 2005, she registered a career-high twelve top-10 finishes, was sixth on the Money List, earning more than $1 million in prize money, and was a contributing member of the victorious 2005 US Solheim Cup Team. Off the greens, Gulbis maintains an impressive corporate portfolio, including TaylorMade-Adidas, MasterCard, Canon, EA Sports, Anheuser-Busch, RSM McGladrey, SemGroup and 24 Hour Fitness, which was recently featured in the Wall Street Journal. In addition, she is entering her second season with her own reality show, The Natalie Gulbis Show, that will premier October 18 on The Golf Channel.

The Xbox Live Game with Fame program gives Xbox Live subscribers the unique opportunity to meet, chat and play against some of today's hottest stars. Past Game with Fame celebrity players include 30 Seconds to Mars, The Strokes, Hoobastank, Staind, Incubus and Simple Plan.
