E3 2013 - Today EA Sports General Manager, Dean Richards, took the stage alongside UFC President, Dana White, to unveil the long anticipated EA Sports UFC for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Like most of the other sports games announced today, EA's IGNITE engine ensures the game will pack one hell of a punch.
"We are very excited to deliver the most realistic fighting experience ever achieved," said Dean Richards, General Manager, EA SPORTS UFC. "With a talented and experienced team at the helm, and powered by EA SPORTS IGNITE, we've created a gameplay feature set for EA SPORTS UFC where every fighter, every strike, every takedown and submission will bring you inside the Octagon like no game ever has before."
"I couldn't be more excited about the work that the team at EA SPORTS has done on the upcoming UFC game," said Dana White, President, UFC. "It's been a great partnership and even though it is still early in development, the game looks amazing. It will be groundbreaking! Fans of all combat sports will love it and have a lot to look forward to in the spring of 2014."
E3 2013 - During today's EA press conference actor Aaron Paul took the stage to announce a movie created around the popular Need for Speed gaming series. The movie is the brainchild of a partnership between Electronic Arts and DreamWorks Studios and has been dubbed Need for Speed the Movie which will hit theaters next spring.
The movie unveil was part of a larger announcement in which EA showed off Need for Speed Rivals, a game which glorifies the heat of competition in the legendary rivalry of cops and racers. Gamers play as either a cop or racer, where each side of the law has its own set of high stakes challenges, rewards and consequences.
This time, the stakes are at their highest as racers put their Speed Points on the line and risk losing them all if busted. Developed on the advanced Frostbite™ 3 engine, Need for Speed Rivals also introduces the revolutionary All Drive system that erases the line between single player and multiplayer, automatically connecting gamers to their friend's racing world. Paths will cross on the open road, creating a world where no two moments will ever be the same.
E3 2013 - Possibly the hottest sports gaming franchise in the world right now is FIFA, and EA did not disappoint with its FIFA announcement at this afternoon's press conference at the E3 Expo. The company says that FIFA 14 will feel alive with players who think, moved and behave like world-class athletes.
This is all made possible through EA's IGNITE engine which is able to blend the best rendering, runtime physics, animation, intelligent, locomotion, and online systems into one powerful ecosystem to fuel the next generation of sports games.
EA says that for the first time ever, fans will feel the electricity of the living Stadium, and experience the majesty of the world's greatest soccer theaters. Players now have four times the decision-making ability in the current generation of players in the current FIFA, which enables each player to have "Pro Instincts" which EA defines as humanlike reactions, anticipation, and instincts.
E3 2013 - Electronic Arts has just announced that Madden NFL 25 will be coming to the next-generation consoles Xbox one, and PlayStation four. Madden NFL 25 is powered by EA Sports' new IGNITE engine and ushers in the next generation of sports games by delivering the smartest, most realistic, and detailed version of the game in its franchises history.
"We've never been more ready for a console transition than we are right now," said Cam Weber, General Manager of American Football for EA SPORTS. "The development team is crafting the most impressive Madden NFL game we've ever made, and I'm extremely excited for fans to get their hands on it for themselves when the Xbox One and PS4 launch."
Coupled with this announcement is the introduction of Adrian Peterson as the cover athlete for Madden NFL 25 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Peterson, the Minnesota Vikings running back, is a five-time Pro Bowler and the reigning NFL MVP. Last season Peterson came within 9 yards of breaking the NFL single-season rushing record set by Eric Dickerson.
EA shows off Battlefield 4 multiplayer footage at E3, makes CoD Ghost look like old school Counter Strike
E3 2013 - During the Microsoft and EA press conferences today at the E3 Expo, game developer DICE showed off its flagship FPS, Battlefield 4, in both single player and online multiplayer modes. As one of the biggest Battlefield fans in the world I cannot express in words the excitement I am feeling for Battlefield 4.
During the Microsoft event dice showcased "Angry Sea" a stunning display of how the new Sea warfare mode in battlefield for might play out. While during the EA press conference DICE showed off a 64 person online multiplayer demo that was played by 64 actual participants on stage. Dubbed the "Siege of Shanghai" it unveiled several new dynamics to the game. Players are now able to use elevators to reach various levels of buildings, and even level entire skyscrapers for a truly destructive environment.
First EA is bringing back Battlefield Commander Mode, which is similar to the Commander mode featured in Battlefield 2, but is much more dynamic and only gives you the resources available based on your team. Possibly one of the coolest features of Commander Mode is that it can be utilized through your touchscreen mobile device such as a tablet. In my opinion this brings in an entirely new dynamic, and is the new technology needed to take the Battlefield series to the next level.

We're just hours away from E3 starting but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy some leaked trailer goodness now, does it? One of which is the game at the top of my most wanted list, Ubisoft's Watch Dogs.
The trailer isn't in-game footage, but it does set the pace for the game and what it is all about. It has a great feel to it, and I'm pretty sure that everything that is done in the trailer is capable of being done in the game. It truly is a no holds barred trailer, and something you need to watch right now.
While surfing Xbox Live tonight, a friend of mine noticed that Fable III is available for download for the sweet sweet price of $0.00. That's right it's 100 percent free! First released in October 2010, Fable III has sold more than 3 million copies.
For those unfamiliar with the game, the story focuses on the player character's struggle to overthrow the King of Albion by forming alliances and building support for a revolution. After a successful revolt, the player becomes the monarch and is tasked with attempting to defend Albion from a great evil.
