In addition to the PS2, the game also came out for the Microsoft Xbox and eventually became backward compatible for consoles like the Xbox 360. In single player, also called Career Mode, the Midnight Club in the game refers to a mysterious group of urban street racers who race for pride, prestige, and the pink slips of the cars they race. The player begins as a New York City taxi driver. However, after joining the Midnight Club, rises through the ranks to become the World Champion, gaining faster vehicles and better modifications along the way with victories.
