Owen Good, over at Kotaku, believes the Madden NFL 11 demo should arrive on July 23rd. He has a good point. What are your thoughts?

Quote:
"An EA Sports spokesman has said that a week from tomorrow, through an unnamed media outlet, the final word on the Madden NFL 11 demo's release date will be given. The smart money has it arriving July 23.

That's unconfirmed through EA Sports, but it would conform to past practice. Last year, EA Sports rolled out its full team ratings over the course of several days via ESPN, and is doing the same thing this year. The blog GoMadden got its hands on the ratings release schedule, and notes the last ratings release day is July 22. Last year's demo came out the day after all team ratings were known."

EA SPORTS UNVEILS CREATION CENTER FOR FIFA SOCCER 11


EA SPORTS unveiled today a new feature called Creation Center that will provide soccer fans with the tools to customize content in FIFA Soccer 11 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation3 in new ways. Craft your own player and create the team of your dreams using a web-based application at www.easportsfootball.com. Create a player by choosing his appearance, accessories and attributes and then create an original team with a distinctive crest and kits, complete with home stadium.

Fans will be able to share their created players and teams with friends and download into their console to play online, in Tournaments and in Kick-Off matches in FIFA Soccer 11. Created players can also be used in the Arena and Lounge Mode. In addition, fans can choose player attributes and manage their created team’s formations and tactics right from the web. Creation Center will launch when FIFA Soccer 11 is available in stores on Sept. 28 in North America and Oct. 1 in Europe and Asia.

“Having the ability to customize content in FIFA Soccer 11 to the degree where you are creating players and teams, choosing player attributes and managing team tactics effortlessly from the web opens up a world of possibilities of original content that fans will be able to create,” said David Rutter, producer of FIFA Soccer 11 on Xbox 360 and PS3. “Creation Center will perfectly compliment the official league and team licenses that are the hallmark of the FIFA franchise.”

New this year in FIFA Soccer 11 is custom audio that enables fans to assign chants for every team and league. Fans can set their home club’s chants to play during player introductions, halftime, and after goals – even hearing their name echo in the stands of Old Trafford or San Siro with created chants for their Virtual Pro. Plus, fans now have the ability to play music from their hard drive in game.
