I was Googling Split Second to get some details on the game. Then I saw a Wikipedia page for Split Second Velocity. Thinking it was some sort of upcoming title, I clicked on it. Turns out it's the UK version of Split Second. Doesn't give any details on why it's called that in the UK. So, I'm asking you guys. Why does the UK version have a different title?

Driving on the wrong side of the road creates velocity.

Wait, what tea? I don't do that, but I do a lot of "Hot Coffee" if you get my drift.

the only people who call cigarettes fags over here are older people mostly. pretty much every younger person knows what faggot actually means.
 
and to the op, who knows. publisher being weird.

The game was made in the UK, so if anyone has the wrong name it's the USA version.
