ESPN to be added to EA games!
"EA and ESPN are creating one place, inside our EA SPORTS games, where anyone who is passionate about real sports and sports videogames can come for their ultimate sports fix. The first implementation can be found in EA SPORTS' MVP 06 NCAA Baseball where gamers can receive ESPN SportsCenter radio highlights, real-time scores, and top stories from the world of sports that update seamlessly while they play; it's the first step in bringing together the worlds of interactive gaming and actual sports," said Todd Sitrin, vice president of marketing for EA.
I must admit this sounds pretty dang cool. I'm an avid sports fan so I can't wait. Imagine playing Madden and simulating the Super Bowl as it is going on AND staying up to date on it via your XBOX!
