First Images Of EA's Sports Complex In PlayStation Home
Sony keeps adding a variety of new spaces to PlayStation Home, making it deeper and more involving than it has been in the past. The key to Home is the continual building process, which will undoubtedly appeal to more and more users as time goes on, and EA Sports is about to make a big contribution.
We had heard about it before: it's the new EA Sports Complex, and considering the size of the publisher behind this addition, and the immense worldwide popularity of the titles that fall under this umbrella, it's not surprising to see that there's plenty to do. The screenshots come from Paddy in the Gamezbox forums. There's the "Coming Soon" sign for the Golf Pro Shop, a look at a golf course from the balcony, the racing section (complete with a full track), poker tables, and of course, loads of flat-screen TVs that will keep you up-to-date on the latest and greatest from EA Sports. You may want to log in to Home to see if the EA space is available; it should be up and running now, although some parts won't be open just yet. It's just another reason to wander around and familiarize yourself with the goings-on of this intriguing virtual world, and if that's not enough, you can always join in on the Xi fun. The newest update from Sony claims that Home now enjoys over 4 million users worldwide, and that's substantial, as the service only launched about four months ago in late December. That's about 1 million users per month! And with fresh, appealing spaces like the EA Sports Complex - and more game-themed spaces on the way - Home is quickly taking shape. Just make sure to give us more Home apartments and Threadz for our avatars, guys!
So anyway, this is great for all you sports fanatics. It's going to be updated on a constant basis and if you can't find something to interest you here, you ain't no sports fan.
