Over the next 5 weeks, EA Sports will show 25 new plays that you will find in NCAA Football 12.

New offensive plays will be shown every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, while a new defensive play every Tuesday and Thursday. Each new play will be accompanied by a screen of the play art and a brief description of why the play has been added to NCAA Football 12.

Play #3 features the Shotgun Spread Flex Wk Y-Stick.

Quote:
"Shotgun Spread Flex Wk Y-Stick – Another spin on a staple play of the Air Raid offense that’s used by Houston, as well as others. Shotgun Spread Flex Wk Y Stick calls for the halfback to motion out of the backfield to the right. This motion puts him in a spot that allows the Y-Stick concept to develop."

Who are sports video game players?

As digital games grow in popularity and continue to gain great cultural significance, game studies has emerged as a new academic field of study. Game studies scholars at renowned universities around the world are exploring how and why producers design and develop these games, and study how and why different groups of players engage these products. As the field of study grows, sports video games and their players have been largely overlooked and understudied.

Three researchers at the Singapore-MIT GAMBIT Game Lab at MIT are trying to change that. Abe Stein, Mia Consalvo and Konstantin Mitgutsch are conducting a study of sports video game players to begin asking questions about this large subset of the greater video game playing community. Their research is looking into how and why sports video game players experience their play, and also how playing sports video games relates to sports fandom in general. For the month of March a short 5-10 minute anonymous survey is being hosted online where respondents can answer brief, basic questions about their sports video game playing experience. The researchers will collect the data and then report on their findings as a first step in expanding sports video game research in general.

The link to the survey is right here.

Check out the new NASCAR The Game 2011 screenshots from Bristol, right here.

BMS FEATURED ON COVER OF NASCAR® THE GAME™ 2011;
GAMESTOP RACING OFFERS GIFT CARD WITH PURCHASE OF SPECIAL TICKET PACKAGE

BRISTOL, Tenn. – Many race fans have dreamed of the day they can slide behind the wheel of a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series machine and rocket around the high banks of Bristol Motor Speedway.

Now, thanks to a special GameStop Racing and NASCAR The Game 2011 ticket offer, race fans will have that chance…at least, virtually.

Through the GameStop Racing package, race fans can purchase two tickets to the March 20 Jeff Byrd 500 Presented by Food City for $150 and receive a $20 GameStop gift card for free.

Additionally, fans who buy four tickets for the March 19 Scotts EZ Seed 300 for $180 through the promotion also will receive a $20 GameStop gift card for free.

Race fans may want to put that GameStop gift card toward the purchase of NASCAR The Game 2011 when it releases for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system on March 29 and Wii on April 12. The game features all of the intensity of competing on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series circuit and, even better for Bristol fans, the game’s designers chose to put BMS on the cover to highlight what is found within the game.

“When we first sat down to talk about what we were going to do for the box cover,” explained Ed Martin, Executive Vice President, Eutechnyx North America, “I think the easiest decision we had to make was the background; the right track to use. It was unanimous from the outset, we had to use Bristol. Bristol embodies everything that is cool about the sport and about our game. Our game is about pack racing, damage, excitement, everything Bristol is.”

Martin, who has worked on several previous NASCAR video game projects, said Bristol is the perfect place to catch the essence of the sport.

“I have seen some of the greatest races of my life at that track and have unbelievable memories,” he continued. “It is always exciting and action is always around you and that is what we want to get across in the game.

“They say a picture has to tell a thousand words. We have to do that in a few seconds when someone is walking by, whether a motorsports gamer or a NASCAR fan. They’ll glance at the box and you have to get that image across that this is a cool game. By setting the cover at Bristol, I think it is going to catch everyone’s eye.”

Fans can live the ultimate motorsports experience in Bristol, and then take on the World’s Fastest Half-Mile themselves in NASCAR The Game 2011 which is developed by Eutechnyx and published by Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI). The game is rated E (Everyone) by the ESRB.
