EA has just announced a giant line-up for Holiday 2008, and it’s hard to be unimpressed. There is, quite fairly, something for everyone. Big boss John agrees.

“EA’s 2008 lineup is our best ever,” said EA head John Riccitiello. “This is the year that our core franchises leap forward with stunning innovation and we introduce more brand new games than any other year in our history. Sports lovers will compete in an all new holographic mode in Madden NFL 09 and experience the online evolution of their players in NBA LIVE 09. Action fans will be able to destroy everything in sight in Mercenaries 2 and be scared witless in our new Sci-Fi horror title Dead Space. We’ve got casual family titles like Hasbro’s Littlest Pet Shop and genre-defying experiences like Mirror’s Edge and Spore. EA has never offered consumers a stronger, more innovative and diverse line up of new games.”

It’s all after the link. There’s nothing there you don’t already know about, but seeing it all in one place is something else.

    Erm, guys?

    Pro tip: When you copy and paste from another website (even a sister one), you may want to check you don’t leave their “ADVERTISEMENT” text in.

    As for the titles mentioned, I think that’s an incredibly strong line up and there’s a good raft of in-house development stuff there which the likes of Activision don’t even try to compete with.

    I’d be even happier if a next-gen SSX had been announced by now!

    Interested in Dead Space, Rock Band and Mirror’s Edge. Possibly Left 4 Dead but the vids I saw of it didn’t impress me.

    Astounding. That’s more EA games than I’ve ever been interested in.

    Christ, I may as well drive to Guildford on the way to work and dump a sack of cash in EA’s reception, they’re going to get it anyway.

    I’ll give a “maybe” to both Dead Space, a “possibly” to Mirror’s Edge, and a “remote outside chance” to Mercs 2.
