EA Sports Sets Up Shop in PlayStation Home This Spring


Slowly but surely, third-party publishers are beginning to set up virtual spaces inside PlayStation Home, and as announced today EA Sports will be the next to hop aboard the bandwagon with the launch of the EA Sports Complex this spring.

“We’re proud to support the PlayStation Home Beta with a very robust offering from EA SPORTS,” said Peter Moore, president of EA SPORTS. “As part of our continued commitment to the connected experience and the digitization of our business, the EA SPORTS Complex is a rich new online environment that presents a compelling and immersive social gaming experience for the global sports audience.”

When construction on the EA Sports Complex is complete, Home users will be able to stop by and chat with other EA Sports nuts, play exclusive new EA Sports multiplayer games, check out all the latest EA Sports Nation leaderboards, watch trailers and more. You can watch a preview trailer of the EA Sports Complex over at the PlayStation blog.

I’ve yet to give Home a try yet myself — just haven’t felt the need to do so — but apparently the service has already raked in something like a million bucks in virtual item sales. So it seems like Home has already proven to be a success, and surely EA (and other companies) want to get a piece of the pie.
