The new EA Sports World launches

Posted June 9th, 2008 at 12:31 pm

As has been mentioned previously, EA Sports World was preparing to debut a revamped site with improved functionality. That has been launched today and the pages for Nascar 09 and NCAA Football 09 are live. You can check it out here.

This should offer a significant improvement over the offering that gamers dealt with up until now. My first reaction was being a little overwhelmed by how cluttered the main page is though. Hopefully capacity isn’t a problem like it was last year around the launches of NCAA and Tiger Woods. Features such as Nascar 09’s Paint Booth, NCAA Football 09 and Madden 09’s video uploading and online dynasty/league tracking, and Facebreaker’s video uploading and created fighter sharing will be bring a lot of gamers to the site.

Apparently everything previously held on the site such as stats, videos, and screenshots have not been transferred over (in a few weeks those things will begin migrating over). That isn’t exactly the best way to treat the consumers who have been using the website up until this point. Feel free to leave your comments on how the site could be improved and the feedback will be passed along.
