Trivia

1001 Video Games

Burnout Paradise appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Cover art

In January 2008 game site Joystiq posted an article claiming that the cover art of Burnout Paradise is remarkably similar to the cover art of the album Unsolved by indie rock band Karate. Electronic Arts issued a statement that the similarities are pure coincidence. The comparison can be found in the related links section.

Sales

Early April 2008 development studio Criterion Studios announced more than a million copies of the game had been sold worldwide.
