EA SPORTS Complex Debuting on PSN
Electronic Arts Inc. today announced
its initial plans for the PlayStation Home Beta for the PLAYSTATION 3, the 3D
social gaming community that allows users to interact, communicate and share
gaming experiences online. EA’s support of the PlayStation Home Beta will begin
with the EA SPORTS Complex, which is currently in development and is slated to
launch this Spring.
“We’re proud to support the
PlayStation Home Beta with a very robust offering from EA SPORTS,” said Peter
Moore, president of EA SPORTS. “As part of our continued commitment to the
connected experience and the digitization of our business, the EA SPORTS Complex
is a rich new online environment that presents a compelling and immersive social
gaming experience for the global sports audience.”
EA worked closely together with Sony
Computer Entertainment to ensure that the EA SPORTS Complex space within
PlayStation Home would be a compelling experience for all EA SPORTS fans, with a
space designed for both casual and hardcore gamers. Gamers will be able to play
exclusive new EA SPORTS multiplayer games, meet and interact with EA SPORTS
fans, view daily, weekly and annual leaderboards to see how they compare against
the rest of EA SPORTS Nation, as well as watch trailers and other content from
some of their favorite EA SPORTS games.
EA is currently working with Sony
Computer Entertainment on further label support of PlayStation Home Beta, and
will announce plans in the near future.
EA SPORTS is the leading interactive
sports software brand in the world, with top-selling titles and franchises
including Madden NFL football, FIFA Soccer, NHL hockey, NBA LIVE basketball,
NCAA Football, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR and NASCAR racing.
