Crabtree, Johnson, Orakpo and Sanchez Featured on Platform Exclusive Covers

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., - April 23, 2009 – Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) announced today that Michael Crabtree, Brian Johnson, Brian Orakpo and Mark Sanchez will be featured on platform exclusive covers of EA SPORTS™ NCAA® Football 10, available in stores July 14th. Each cover athlete led his team on a memorable run toward the BCS National Championship, helping to shape the competitive landscape of college football in 2008.

Michael Crabtree, formerly of Texas Tech University, graces the NCAA Football 10 Xbox 360® cover. A top 2009 NFL Draft prospect and two-time recipient of the Biletnikoff and Paul Warfield Awards, Crabtree is a highly recognized wide receiver who led Texas Tech in a close race for the BCS National Championship up until the final weeks of the 2008 season. Texas Tech’s victory over Texas in Lubbock is considered one of the defining moments of 2008.

The PLAYSTATION®3 cover features University of Utah’s former quarterback, Brian Johnson. In 2008, under Johnson’s leadership, the Utah Utes became the only undefeated NCAA Division I team, boasting a 12-0 record heading into the 2009 Sugar Bowl. In that game, #7 Utah upset #4 Alabama to finish the season with a perfect 13-0 record. Johnson was named the Most Outstanding Player in the 2009 Sugar Bowl.

The PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) version of NCAA Football 10 will showcase University of Southern California’s former quarterback, Mark Sanchez. In his only season as USC’s starting quarterback, Sanchez led the Trojans to a near perfect 12-1 season, narrowly missing the opportunity to compete for the 2008 BCS National Championship title. Sanchez was named the Most Valuable Offensive Player in the 2009 Rose Bowl.

University of Texas’ former defensive end, Brian Orakpo, is featured on the PlayStation®2 cover. In 2008, Orakpo was unanimously selected as a first-team All-American and named the Associated Press Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year. In his final season with the Longhorns, Orakpo won the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, the Ted Hendricks Award and the Lombardi Award. Under Orakpo’s leadership, the Longhorns were one of the most dominating teams in the college football last year, defeating numerous top 25 teams including eventual Big 12 Champion and BCS National Champion contender Oklahoma in a memorable Cotton Bowl confrontation.

Very Cool!

Awesome, hopefully it's as good as I think it could be.

Sounds cool, but one question: Are you going to be able to create teams offline? I would imagine so, but I've learned never to assume anything.

Also, how does one go about uploading logos? Do you need to put them on your hard drive, or do you get them from Xbox Live or do you need a transfer cable? Someone please shed some light. Thanks!
 
# 10 greenegt @ 04/23/09 09:58 AM
Excellent news! I love that we can share teams.
 
# 11 youALREADYknow @ 04/23/09 10:00 AM
That's outstanding.

I guess its online for the part of uploads and downloading new logos. Maybe downloading teams. It looks like all of it is offline but online will be neccasary

Very smart way for EA to get FCS teams into the game without spending the time to do it themselves.

Sweet, it's finally official.
 
# 17 thmst30 @ 04/23/09 10:23 AM
So we can even upload different logos for the field and uniform separately? That's what it sounds like. Plus we can share our created teams. FCS teams here I come! Hopefully this is as awesome as it sounds. If so I can make sure that the FCS teams logos are correct on their uniform and field. Instead of having to use one logo for everything and use EA's generic endzone art, we can make the endzone art authentic. Again hopefully it is that in-depth.

That sounds like a buy for me. Wish they still had this when I was still playin. Woulda liked to see a user created Patriot League.
 
# 19 MontanaToRice @ 04/23/09 10:27 AM
This is going to be awesome. My high school team will be winning NCAA championships!

I hope so too. If it is that in depth then this will be great. Not that in depth it will still be great but lacking that extra something. That extra "oomph" to push it to greatness.
