CHERTSEY, UK – November 8, 2007 – Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) threw the switch today on a free downloaded feature called Online Team Play that will enable 10 people on 10 different consoles anywhere in the world to connect online to play a single match of FIFA 08. The new feature is automatically available for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system and the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system when connected online.
Be A Pro: Online Team Play in FIFA 08 enables up to five friends on five different consoles to select and take control of their own individual players on the same team, supported by AI teammates, to play against up to five rivals playing on five different consoles of another team. You can choose to play as a single, fixed player the entire game, with free roaming players, or teams can have a combination of both. Anyway you choose to play, Be A Pro: Online Team Play challenges you to master the same disciplines as a real football player—from positioning and tackling to reading the field and passing.
