Discussion about the Xbox One reveal, EA Sports announcements and more.
A look at five features removed from the game that should make a comeback.
Best Buy has inadvertently (or purposefully) leaked more info on this year's FIFA.
A look at what EA Sports' new game(s) which are planned to be revealed at E3 might be...
"As the title of the game suggests, all the racing will be taking place along civilian roads as opposed to dedicated racing circuits. This seems like it could be the game's Achilles heel, since the authenticity of each series may suffer based on the lack of licensed tracks."
"Sure, scoring touchdowns gets you all the glamour and glory, but it doesn't happen unless the man on the sideline makes all the right calls. Coaching a game is one of the most challenging parts of NCAA® Football 06 from EA SPORTS, but learning what plays to call and when to call them can make the difference between victory and defeat."
"We're not exactly looking forward to 2006 - NCAA Football 06 isn't better than last year's game and our Cal Bears are sure to do worse than 2005's miracle run - but for all the inexorable fumbles, stumbles and bumbles, we expect plenty of daylight for our Bears and plenty of green for this game. Go teams."
"Overall, this isn’t a bad little tennis game. This colourful, challenging, easy to learn game may just be for your mobile phone but it can rival the tennis games on the consoles for entertainment value. A nice way to take gaming on the move."
"Alas the classic Hockenheim is no more, the chase through the forest was one of the classic tracks of Formula 1. Like so much of the sport it has been destroyed in recent years. However the World Racing 2 version is looking darn pretty."
"Are we looking forward to this? Yes we are! EA has released two new movies showing off their latest version of the very popular racing game Need for Speed, this time very appropriately called Need for Speed: Most Wanted."

"Need for Speed Most Wanted delivers a unique, fast-paced and gripping ride in the racing genre as players build up their Rap Sheet and street cred to move their way up the Black List to become the most wanted racer on the streets. Players will go head-to-head with the top drivers on the scene as well as strategically evade more than half dozen cops at any one time."
- World Racing 2 Screenshots (PS2, Xbox, PC)
"World Racing 2 enhances the technology of the game's fore-runner, which introduced an innovative 3D landscape technology and sophisticated driving physics. While World Racing focussed on the simulation aspect, World Racing 2 will put the fun of driving at centre stage and offer optimised arcade racing characteristics, rich and varied range of mission modes, lively scenarios, enhanced tuning options and a great variety of cars."
- Tony Hawk's American Wasteland Preview (Xbox)
"One of the key features in the T Hawk series is the ability to skate various parks or areas of town. In game’s past, you would travel from cool skating city to cool skating city, taking part in contests, free grinds, or in an objective-based campaign-like contest. Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland is quite a bit different."
- NCAA March Madness 06 Hands On Preview (Xbox)
"The Lockdown Stick allows you to “body-up” the opposition by pressing down on the right analog stick when in close; making your defender pressure the ball carrier, and hopefully, creating a turnover in the process. When in Lockdown mode, an on-court icon will be displayed around the player which helps to line up your defender with the ball carrier."
- Need for Speed Most Wanted Movies (Xbox)
"Combining illicit street racing and tuner customization with the intensity of strategic police pursuit that surpasses any Hollywood-style chase scene, Need for Speed Most Wanted will be on every gamer's 'must-have' list this holiday season."
- World Racing 2 Screenshots (Xbox)
"When the Formula 1 engines roar this weekend at the legendary Hockenheimring, many racing enthusiasts will be longing for more, wanting to test their own driving skills on the famous and freshly rebuilt circuit."
"SSX On Tour also boasts a new, unique graphic style. EA’s development team says that they’re going for a “sketchbook” flavor. Concept art appears liberally throughout the game, behind menus and on billboards."
"The game of tennis is one filled with a history of tradition, colorful personalities, and legendary matches. From its early days when men played in pants, the game has evolved to an adrenaline rush of scorching serves, delicate drop shots, and dramatic passing shots. No video game has represented this sport better than Top Spin. Featuring top tennis players including Roger Federer, Lleyton Hewitt, Maria Sharapova, Venus Williams and many more."
