Forbes has just posted an interview with Chris Erb, VP Brand Marketing at EA Sports, as they talk about their growth on Facebook and upcoming EA Sports retail stores.

Quote:
"As pervasive as digital is, there’s still an offline component to acquiring new customers that remains important. Our approach is to be creative and innovative with whatever we’re doing offline, and ensure that it connects with our digital strategies. For example, we just started construction on our first North American EA SPORTS retail store, which will open this fall in the Charlotte, NC, airport. It is the first of what we hope to be at least three new retail stores to open in the next year, and it’s a place people will be able to interact and buy their favorite EA SPORTS games. As we look to expand the overall sports game audience, it’s important for us to create environments for people to get their hands on our products and experience how much interactive sports experiences have evolved over the past few years."

Trials Evolution to Redefine Digital Downloads - Again

It’s ‘Survival of the Fastest’ in this feature-packed follow-up to Trials HD.

RedLynx (redlynx.com) today announced Trials Evolution for Xbox LIVE Arcade, the follow-up to its best-selling, critically acclaimed hit, Trials HD.

"Trials Evolution is more than just a sequel to Trials HD," said Antti Ilvessuo, Creative Director of RedLynx. “We listened carefully to all the feedback we received from the previous game and added it to our own vision of what the ultimate Trials game could be, coming up with a gamer’s wish list of must-play features.” He promised more details would be revealed in the future.

The game announcement was accompanied by a teaser trailer, available on the Xbox LIVE Arcade dashboard, Spike TV, and other outlets, just prior to its announcement. The teaser offers a brief glimpse of the Trials action to come.

"Including the base game and both DLCs, Trials HD has sold more than two million copies since its release, making it one of the best-selling games on Xbox LIVE Arcade of all time," said Tero Virtala, CEO of RedLynx. “And most importantly has also maintained a Metacritic score of 86 since its release among critics, and an even more generous 90 amongst gamers.”

“All these factors, including awards such as Best Nordic Game of 2010, Best Finnish Game of 2010, and Best Download of 2009 as voted by the Xbox LIVE Arcade community, made another Trials game something we really wanted to do,” Virtala said. “But we took our time in carefully planning and developing it before announcing it, because we wanted to do it right.”

Trials Evolution is expected to launch on Microsoft's Xbox LIVE Arcade service in 2011.

I recently had a chance to play the Tackle Alley mode in Backbreaker Vengeance. It's not 11 on 11, instead it's basically one on many.

The object is to get your player to the end zone and rack up as many points as you can while getting there. However, it's not as easy as it sounds because there are many obstacles in the way. Not only do you have defensive players trying to tackle you, there are also obstacles to jump over, go through or around. While the sidelines on the field are present, there are also red-marked boundaries you can not touch. If you do touch these boundaries, the game marks your player out of bounds, and you have to start over.

Kotaku's Owen Good has just posted another article, entitled It’s in the Game, Unless It’s Outside the Lines.

How do you feel about it? Bring it on or keep it out?

Quote:
"Without fail, every time I bring up this job and its subject, usually with folks outside the business, the topical jokes start rolling. Whatever the latest controversy or embarrassment is in sports, people ask if that's going to be simulated in the next edition of Madden, Tiger Woods or NBA 2K.

Sometimes someone comes up with a funny idea. This week, I was pitched a concept for an exclusive Terrelle Pryor series of cars in Need For Speed, tying the racing franchise to the troubled Ohio State quarterback whose fleet of free vehicles, among other indiscretions, led to his coach's forced resignation on Memorial Day. I promised to pass along that tip at E3."
