EA Sports reaching out to the community

Posted March 28th, 2007 at 5:46 am

Recently EA Sports released a press release seeking those in the soccer gaming community who would like to volunteer to contribute to the game/s they obsess over.

EA SPORTS is expanding our football data and reference research community and need people who have the expertise and dedication to edit and collect data/reference material related to their favorite club.

Do you feel you know more about your team than your club’s manager? Could you tell your mates how many games your centre played last season and which foot he prefers to hit the ball with? Are you constantly keeping track of the transfers and youth prospects at your club? If you fit this description then please keep reading.

Not only do you have to have a football brain, but you must also have data editing skills. Experience with editing data for football video games will go a long way to ensuring you understand the data we need collected.

Now, if you’re still reading and are interested in this project, please take the time to fill out the online registration form at: www.eafootballtalentscout.com.

EA SPORTS will be reading submissions and getting in contact with the people we feel best suit the projects on offer. Please note you must be 18 years or older to be eligible to participate.

Hopefully it has less to do with opinions on players and shaping their ratings than it does to collecting accurate unbiased data and specific information. I can’t imagine the mess that would be created if EA expanded this program to Madden and started taking cues from Falcons fans regarding Michael Vick.
