Electronic Arts says its support for PlayStation Home, just announced by Sony
during the company's CES presentation, will begin with an area devoted to EA Sports.
The "EA Sports Complex" (pictured) is currently in development, EA confirmed, and slated for a Spring launch inside the PlayStation 3's 3D social virtual world.
The company says it's designed for "both casual and hardcore gamers" as an area where they can play Home-exclusive multiplayer games, interact with other EA Sports fans and compare against one another with various leaderboards.
The EA Sports Complex in Home will also feature trailers and content from popular EA Sports titles.
"We’re proud to support the PlayStation Home Beta with a very robust offering from EA Sports," says label president Peter Moore. "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."
The EA Sports Complex is apparently just the beginning of the publisher's collaboration with PlayStation Home -- the company says it's presently working with Sony on further support for Home, with plans to be announced in the "near future."
