EA Playground video

EA Playground video

Inspired by the success of Wii Sports, the mini-games collection that is EA Playground targets the casual gamers for the Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii systems. The Wiimote handling is shown through a video of Slot Car Racing included in the package which is similar to MicroMachines. But it seems the car is driven alone and that the moves are just added for fun rather than being important.

I like to think this could actually be really fun. But you should probably preface this by saying this is just video of the Slot Car Racing.

They should release that as a XBL Arcade game.. But offcourse they wouldn't be able to charge full price for it like they probably will on the Wii.. So yeah..

I have to admit, the video looked fun. I might rent the game to see how it fares, but the visual and audible presentation seems to be towards a younger audience (which I do not mind). However, you have to tell yourself, who does not have enough self worth to let someone else affect his/her desire for an enjoyable experience.

    GriftGFX They're going to wind up harming consumer friendly service models as much as they will punish the bad ones. And I feel like stuff like SWBF2 will be appropriately punished by the market. (9 Hours ago)
