    [xfloat=left]http://www.wiichat.com/robry/ealogo.jpg[/xfloat]Due to the supreme difficulty of EA Sports games over recent years and the in-ability for myself to actually perform well in games such as FIFA, the company are introducing a new Family Play style of play for various EA Sports games on the Wii.

    The new system which will be introduced in forthcoming versions of Madden NFL 08, NBA Live 08 and FIFA 08 will allow players of all abilities and ages to play without a competitive disadvantage. Advanced controlers will also be avaliable for more experienced players allowing for a more challenging experience.

    Players will have the choice to play the style that best suits their skills. When entering a contest, players now have the option to choose Advanced or Family Play. Once in the game, Advanced users take complete control of all aspects of the gameplay through intuitive Wii gestures using both the Nunchuk and Wii remote. EA SPORTS Family Play offers a simplified control system using just the Wii remote that enables novice players to focus on having fun while the console does the rest. With the Wii remote in hand, players control key actions – such as shooting, passing, snapping, and throwing – while the console controls the rest. It’s like having an invisible helper on your team. Plus, as novice players gain confidence in their ability they can gradually begin to use Advanced controls simply by plugging in the Nunchuk. It’s that easy.

    The following three EA SPORTS games feature EA SPORTS Family Play:

    Madden NFL 08


    Anyone can play like a pro in Madden NFL 08, whether a new user or a long time fan. Play with only the Wii remote with EA Sports Family Play or use the Wii remote and nunchuck for more advanced controls; the decision is yours. Featuring an all-new Party Mode, play trivia or chose from 22 different mini-games. Break down plays and highlight key moments with all-new Madden NFL 08 telestrator. Bring the game online, play head to head with friends and keep up to date with the live sports ticker for the ultimate online experience.

    NBA LIVE 08

    When the game is on the line and the ball is in your hands, what will you do? Will you penetrate the lane and rise above the rim for a monster slam, or find an opening around the perimeter and sink the game-winning basket? Jump in on the NBA action with EA Sports Family Play that gives every user the opportunity to enjoy success in NBA LIVE 08. You control your team’s shooting, passing, and steals on defense with the Wii remote, and leave the rest up to the AI. If you’re already a pro, use both the Wii remote and nunchuck for more advanced controls.

    FIFA 08

    The whole family can play FIFA 08 with a flick of the wrist. Play the traditional and authentic way or in a new party mode called Footii Party with Ronaldinho where you can play Juggling, Table Soccer or Boot It with your own Mii characters to unlock a customized Ronaldinho character to take on the champ. The in-game Soccer Academy makes it easy to learn the basic and FreeMotion advanced controls in more than 30 interactive tutorials, or let the game give you an assist with EA SPORTS Family Play. EA’s award-winning Interactive Leagues online play is also featured.

    All three titles are due out in the Autumn and perhaps will allow mummies and daddies who can't quite grasp normal controls, the chance to shine! We'll see...

    All of these games sound really good. Games accessible to all, I seem to remember that statement from them awhile back. Wii--it has so many connotations...fun for everyone. Nothing wrong with that, and what a fantastic selling point beyond the world of any particular genre. Just what does the future hold for this console?

    that wouldnt be that much of an accomplishment.

    but anyways, i read this on ign, and i thought it was a great idea to get other non-gamers playing wii games along with gamers.

    thats actually pretty cool. I hate when you kill your friend in a game and then they don't want to play anymore. this should keep things more comptetitive.

    What I want to know is, since we use an EA sports account, can I continue using my profile I have had on the PC for the past 2 years?

    After playing multiple years of Madden that didn't belong to me on other consoles, I'd invest in Madden '08 for the 'different approach' because its a wii and not a regular console, it will make an interesting "4th and 1."
