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.

EA Casual Entertainment president Kathy Vrabeck has confirmed with investors that the “next-gen” Sims games will begin production within three years, and that a raft of other Sims titles are on the way in the not-so-distant future.
My Sims Kingdom will hit DS and Wii in the company’s third quarter, ending December 31, as Wii a PC version of current Wii game, MySims. MySims Party will launch for Wii and DS in EA’s fourth quarter.
SimAnimals will launch before the end of March next year, Vrabeck said. Another title, SimCity Creator is further out, and is confirmed to hit before the end of fiscal 2011.
The news accompanied sales figures for MySims, which has shipped over 3 million units and created over $100 million in revenue. EA is showing bullish noises this week, having yesterday announced that it expects to reach a turnover of $6 billion by 2011, and that it has secured exclusive NFL licensing for the same period.
