GameSpot has posted their impressions of We Ski.

Quote:
"The Wii Remote and Nunchuk act as your left and right poles, so you make downward motions with them to push off from a stop and pick up speed. If you're playing with only those controls, you'll also turn them like you would your skis to steer left and right."

Dave Branda has checked in with Part II of our Five Things That Drive Gamers Crazy feature.
"Last week Operation Sports detailed five mistakes sports game developers constantly make that drive gamers batty.

Continuing with that theme, here are five more things the developers get wrong time and time again. Hopefully a few of them will make note and … you know … try to please their customers."

Want to know what's going to happen with Take-Two if they are bought by EA? The best way to predict the future is to look at the past and Operation Sports' Chase Becotte did just that. Check out his latest article discussing past companies EA has acquired and their fates:
"Back in 1982, Electronic Arts started out as a pioneering publishing house lead by founder and CEO Trip Hawkins. Fast forward 26 years and well, a lot has changed to say the least. Trip Hawkins left the company in 1991 to start the doomed 3DO console; in the same year Don Mattrick's old company, Distinctive Software, became the first major acquisition by EA -- Mattrick later became president of EA, and is presently the Senior VP of Microsoft's Entertainment and Devices division, which happens to be Peter Moore's former job."

Operation Sports' Patrick Williams (aka BigWill33) checks in today with an article discussing who exactly is leading your power plays down the ice in NHL 08.

Quote:
"The NHL trade deadline has come and gone, with a few big moves that were made. You are probably adjusting those rosters, or waiting for EA to update them for you (keep waiting ha), as your favorite team prepares for the playoff push. Now is the perfect time to discuss who is quarterbacking your power play in NHL 08."

Could it happen and would you buy it? Check out the article at VideoGamer.
"When I first heard of the astonishing deal it got me to thinking that maybe, just maybe, EA wanted Take-Two not just because it wants to sell more sports games at a high price, but because it believes that now, finally, the time is right to take on the might of Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft by releasing its own video game console."

MCV has posted an interview with Peter Moore, President of EA Sports.
MCV: "What is the single biggest challenge currently facing EA Sports?"
Peter Moore: "This goes back to your question about where our portfolio is lacking. We’re still too North-American centric and we’re making the right decisions now to globalise our business. We also always need to continue to improve quality. I feel good about the progress I’ve seen our teams making already at what’s still an early phase in the development cycle on many of our biggest fall franchises."
