Rugby 2002 shipped for PS2.
EA has announced the shipment of Rugby 2002 for the PS2. While being the first Rugby title for the PS2 in North America, Rugby 2002 had been released in Australia and Europe one month ago, understandably so. With commentary from Bill McLaren, Rugby 2002 has been supported from numerous associations including the Australian Rugby Union, the New Zealand Rugby Union, South African Rugby Football Union, the Rugby Football Union, Federation Francaise de Rugby and Scottish Rugby Union. With such incredible support from respectable sources, EA believes Rugby 2002 has truly captured the realism of Rugby internationally.
"There is a huge loyal rugby following with rugby clubs across North America and EA SPORTS Rugby captures all the essential elements of international rugby that will please these fans," said Chip Lange, vice president of marketing, North America. "EA Sports is committed to covering the world of sports and this is an exciting next step in our videogame library."
