Electronic Arts unveiled details of a new, Wii exclusive line of games today. The EA SPORTS All-Play line of games are being designed for social play and feature unique controls, distinct presentation and an inviting play style for casual and regular gamers. " The Wii platform and the Wii consumer are looking for a very unique sports experience,” said Peter Moore, president of EA SPORTS. “We’re excited to take five of our most popular franchises and develop them from the ground up exclusively for the Wii, with unique controls, unique presentation, unique modes and even unique packaging. Whether you’re an EA SPORTS veteran or a rookie gamer, EA SPORTS All-Play levels the playing field and delivers a fresh new gaming experience.”


The All-Play lineup will simply be the Wii version of EA SPORTS games, and not new IPs specifically designed for Wii. At first glance, it would appear that the All-Play banner is just a new look for EA SPORTS games on Wii, and that there would be very little difference from EA's current sports offerings that feature EA SPORTS Family Play. Well, All-Play is much more than a banner, and the differences between Family Play and All-Play are pretty significant. While Family Play is just a control system designed to make getting into the gameplay easier for new players, All-Play gives players control over everything in the game., making the games more approachable without dumbing them down. More details on the various All-Play features in each of the five games follow below.

EA will be shipping five games under the All-Play banner this year, including NCAA Football 09 All-Play , which will be releasing next month. Each of the five All-Play games – NCAA Football 09 All-Play , Madden NFL 09 All-Play , Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 09 All-Play, NBA Live 09 All-Play and FIFA Soccer 09 All-Play will be priced at $49.99 USD/CAD.

 

More details on the All-Play lineup follows:
