E3 2008: Live from the EA Media Briefing

We are seated for the Electronic Arts E3 2008 Media Briefing. We start the conference off right, with a montage of a ton of upcoming titles, focusing on some new sports titles, upcoming Sims releases, and a bunch of casual games like Monopoly, Boogie, and Operation (aw yeah!) Of course, Spore is also featured here as well.

John Riccitiello hits the stage to talk about what EA has this afternoon to show us, and he says they won’t be doing PowerPoint, statistics, or sales figures. Instead, they are going to focus on the games, and we will be hearing from the people that make the games.

Rod Humble of The Sims Studio comes out to talk about The Sims. He announces Sim Animals. in this game you create groups of animals and their friends, habitat, etc. Some animals are friendly like deer and rabbits, while wolves and bears can stir up trouble. We then get a trailer. We get a baby cub bear interacting with a squirrel, and then a fox joins the fray. It seems that you basically control the game by using the world as your UI, you have a hand similar to Black and White. Will be exclusive to and Nintendo DS in January 2009.

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Design, Internet, Video Games, Videos

You may already know that Sims creator Will Right has been hard at work making Spore, a game that involves evolution of unicellular creatures to intelligent life. Electronic Arts has released the Creature Creator, free editing software that you can use to devise your own Spore and customize buildings, vehicles, etc. Over 250,000 of them have already been built and displayed on the Sporepedia Website. If that isn’t enough to keep you busy, there is now a video/dance competition. The $49.95 game will be available for PCs, Macs, mobile phones and Nintendo DS this September.
