NFL GameDay released on PS2


SCEA announced today that NFL GameDay 2002 from 989 Sports is available in stores. Showcasing a brand new game engine, NFL GameDay 2002 features updated graphics and realistic gameplay that is a great improvement to their previous titles in the series.


"989 Sports is proud to bring the all-new NFL GameDay 2002 to market, further emphasizing our dedication to the GameDay franchise and our commitment to offer one of the most authentic sports games available," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. "Following a ground-up redesign that incorporates a new game engine, revolutionary technology which creates unparalleled graphics and spectacular gameplay, NFL GameDay 2002 is made for fans as well as gamers who live for the competition of sports."




Revolutionary 3D Player Scanning Technology - Using the latest 3D scanning equipment and cameras, the NFL players come to life like never before. Portraits of faces, arms, torsos and legs have been scanned in full uniform to deliver incredibly lifelike facial features, skin color and uniform textures. Every position has been photographed and

   scanned for maximum realism.


Exclusive Multiple Player Motion Capture - All new technology translates into realism that captures the power and athleticism of the NFL in amazing detail. For the first time ever, simultaneous motion capture sessions with two defenders trying to tackle a relentless ball carrier deliver sophisticated gang tackle sequences. See drag downs, multiple player tackles, lineman battling for position, pass protection blocks and ankle tackles. New catch animations include bobble catches, one handed grabs and diving two-handed snags.


Awesome 3D-Physics Based Gameplay - Feel the smoothest and most responsive gameplay. Each player occupies his own personal, 3D space that allows gamers to move around the field like a ball carrier during a NFL game. State-of-the art physics allow gamers to spin off would be tacklers, stiff-arm oncoming defenders, push off defensive backs to make jumping, one handed catches and drag down or throw down ball carriers with authority.


Next Generation Artificial Intelligence - See offensive lines perform trap blocks on bull rushing defensive linemen, receivers running underneath routes after reading a zone defense and quarterbacks executing screen passes to rattle blitzing defenses. On defense,

   which is what put NFL GameDay on the charts, players communicate changes in coverage and alignment based on the offensive formations at the line of scrimmage.


Donovan McNabb Motion Capture and Gameplay Consultation Philadelphia Eagles Pro Bowl quarterback, Donovan McNabb, has been motion captured and consulted on gameplay to deliver a truly realistic football gaming experience.


New Dan Fouts and Dick Enberg Commentary - Play-by-Play legend Dick Enberg and ABC Sports color commentator Dan Fouts have been recorded to recreate the ultimate TV style broadcast. Innovative back and forth banter, key play analysis and player identification will keep gamers glued to the TV.
