EA's gigantic E3 line-up

31 games, with a press release as long as your arm

Source - press release

I pity the poor sod that had to write this extraordinary press release. In fact, I'm tempted to take EA up under the trade descriptions act, because this isn't so much a press release as a press book. Why not bind it in leather and send it soaring across the globe using an interstellar catapult platform? It's EA - they're bound to have one. Anyway, instead of going over each game in turn - because we would like to post this item before E3 - we will focus on the highlights, with a big list at the end, because you love lists. Yes you do. Right, sports fans. Care to guess what's on the agenda? My money is on everything we saw last year with 2003 on the end of it. Let's see, shall we? This stuff will be available on every platform under the sun: Madden NFL 2003, NBA Live 2003, NASCAR Thunder 2003, 2002 FIFA World Cup (shipped), Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2003, Knockout Kings 2003 (Cube only, oddly), NHL 2003, F1 2002 (shipped on Xbox, out soon on the rest), NCAA Football 2003 and Freekstyle (it's got a bike in it - bikes are a sport, or something, but apparently only on Cube and PS2). Anyway, I win. What else? Well… Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets from UK-based Argonaut (cheer) is currently set to appear on virtually every console ever. The PSone version of the game will be a simple successor to the original game, whereas the other 'next generation' versions are all being done by a different development team within Electronic Arts. A C64 version has not been ruled out. [Don't think I'm not reading this, kiddo - Ed] The recently announced James Bond 007 NightFire will be on display, along with the likes of the Xbox version of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Mace Griffin Bounty Hunter (yes, we know Crave already announced that). Here's the rest of the list:
