Wednesday, 13th August 2008 15:06 GMT By Patrick Garratt


This sounds amazing. EA’s announced Celebrity Sports Showdown for Wii, “an all-new intellectual property… currently in development at EA Canada and… the first Wii title to launch under the new EA Sports Freestyle brand.” From the release:

From the makers of EA Playground, Celebrity Sports Showdown features 12 outdoor sports games and is the ultimate party game to play with people of all ages. Play as your favorite celebrity such as Fergie and Avril Lavigne, and athletes like Paul Pierce and Mia Hamm to determine who will be the ultimate celebrity athlete. Get off the couch and get into the action with fun and easy-to-play controls designed specifically for the Wii.

No words needed. It’s out at the end of the year.

    I have no idea who Fergie is, but that looks precisely “fuck all” like Avril Lavigne.

    My favourite celebrity is (or was) Lolo Ferrari. Can I play as her EA? CAN I?

    You could always buy LBP and attach some beachballs to the front of your sackgirl.

    Then stand cocktail glasses on its tits and give it a drug overdose.

    They look like MS’s avatars. Although everything looks like everything else these days. Maybe I’m getting old…

    Wasn’t Fergie married to Prince Andrew? Or are there two Fergie’s in the world? God help us.
