Survey Gives Insight Into EASports.com Plans

A survey was recently posted on EA Sports World and it turns out that it mainly focused on prospective changes coming to EASW and EASports.com. It appears that EASW is going to merge into a new EASports.com and offer a wide array of new features.

Some of the most exciting ideas are a video mash-up tool to edit and string together highlight reels uploaded from the games, using Photo Game Face in the creation of your online avatar, and a jersey creator tool that would allow for them (and the downloading of other user’s created jerseys) to be used in the games. I’m not a big fan of putting money on the line for online gaming however which is something else that was discussed.

While it probably won’t come as a surprise some of the questions centered around monetizing particular features or potentially offering “premium” versions of them containing enhanced options. It should be stated though that surveys such as this one generally ask those type of questions and they very well may not end up charging for any of it.

So it sounds like there are some intriguing changes and feature additions coming down the line. I’ve been a big fan of the screenshot and video highlight uploading and the Top 10 videos that EA Sports World has been producing. So it is encouraging to find out that they are working towards expanding the content and features available and hopefully that’ll be in time for this year’s crop of games.

    That would be awesome if we got to create logos and jerseys and download them into the games.

    This sounds nice – mashups are the way of the future, so I love the idea of empowering the end-user gamers :) Plus, this works well from a viral standpoint, to say the least! Kudos, EA :)

    I would hands down pay for a jersey and logo creator tool to be put in games. (something like 5 dollars for the year).

    I like a lot of the ideas they tossed around, but am also not a fan of the gaming for money idea. EA has to decide if their goal is to build up the general gaming community (which a lot of their ideas seem to be based upon) or not, because gaming for money is a 'win at all costs' situation.

    Yeah if people think it is bad now imagine with money on the line. Take the cheesing/cheating/disconnects to another level. I wonder if EA has investigated how much it would cost them to have employees moderating the numerous disputes that would arise.

    I am sick of EA wasting their time with this crap. Work on your games, not the site.
