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.

IGN is reporting that EA has developed a skateboard game for the Wii Balance Board called Skate It.
It’s not quite the the fitness game that our old chum Peter Moore was talking about, but it does feature EA’s SKATE engine. The article says EA will officially announce it next week.
There’s an interview with exec producer Scott Blackwood through the link.
