E3: EA Sports Active to get expansion

First add-on to arrive this "holiday".

The first expansion pack for EA Sports Active will hit the shops "this holiday", according to Peter Moore. [EA has since announced that the game will ship to Japanese shops on 6th August - Ed]

The EA Sports boss made the announcement during his company's E3 conference. He promised "more exercises and more challenges" for the expansion pack - another 30 exercises, to be precise.

There will be an emphasis on "working the core [muscles]" and you can expect more sports - "even waterskiing".

The first EA Sports Active title has only been out a couple of weeks but 600,000 copies have already been sold, according to Moore. That makes it "by far, the most successful launch of any Wii title in EA history".

"I'm not sure there's a product I'm more proud to be involved with than this," added Moore.

He then welcomed Pete Sampras to the stage to demonstrate Grand Slam Tennis. "How does it compare to Wimbledon?" said Peter.

"This is easier," said Pistol Pete.
