    We are not sure why we missed this nice little game pre-order offer but you still have some time to take advantage of it while you still can. As you may know next week sees the release of Blur, the new action-racing game from developer Bizarre Creations in their first game for their current owners Activision.

    If you pre-order the game before its release on May 25 you get an extra game for free. It's the Windows version of Geometry Wars Retro Evolved , the highly addictive (and highly colorful) arcade shooter that was originally made as a mini-game for Bizarre Creations' Xbox title Project Gotham Racing 2 . If you have never played it you may find it's more entertaining than most high priced AAA games.

    Activision and Bizarre Creation's upcoming racing game Blur is the latest console game to integrate social networking features for the Facebook era.

    The companies said Friday that gamers will be able to challenge Facebook friends in single and multiplayer modes, and share achievements directly from inside the game via a "Share" button within Blur's interface.

    Users that connect Blur to Facebook can post in-game photos, racing stats, unlockable items and other content to the social networking site, Activision said.

    Facebook claims to have over 400 million users. Both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 boast integration with the popular social network.

    Activision CEO Bobby Kotick said that Blur is the first multiplatform game to have Facebook integration. "The Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC will be able to link their console gameplay to their network of friends," he said.

    Blur is slated for the release in the U.S. on May 25. Activision acquired UK-based Project Gotham Racing developer Bizarre in 2007.
