EA SPORTS Dominates Best of E3 Sports Category

The critics have spoken and the hard work put in by the number of development teams at Tiburon and EA Canada have been recognized on Day Two of E3. IGN released their list of nominees, less Best Overall game, and within the Sports Video Games category EA SPORTS had the only five titles listed. The five that will by vying for their Best Sports Game at E3 are EA SPORTS MMA, Madden NFL 11, FIFA Soccer 11, NHL 11, and NBA JAM.

What was also pretty cool was during today's EA SPORTS Show with Peter Moore, three EA SPORTS titles also received nods to get into the Video Game Guinness Book of World Records. The FIFA franchise, with Producer David Rutter on hand, received a Guinness Award for the highest sales in a franchise pushing out 60 million copies in its lifetime. The Madden NFL franchise was recognized for its longevity as Senior Producer Phil Frazier received the award for most titles in a series. Does anyone know how many years the franchise has been out? First correct answer tweeted to me @sk88z gets a copy of Madden NFL 11 when the game ships! Lastly, NHL 09 received a Guinness Award for being the First MMO Sports game with David Littman receiving the award on behalf of the team back at EA Canada.

With a couple of extra hours more than yesterday and what seemed to be bigger crowds, the show floor definitely heated up and I joked on twitter that the one booth that could've been as big a hit as the EA booth would've been a Speed Stick one. However, if you were lucky enough to get in behind closed doors to check out some of the EA SPORTS games that weren't on the show floor, you were welcomed with some nice AC and an exclusive look at NHL 11, FIFA 11, NBA ELITE 11, and OTP action in Madden NFL 11.

Following today's EA SPORTS Show (we'll have videos tomorrow right here on the Inside EA SPORTS blog), select community leaders were given an opportunity to not only get inside those closed doors, but they also were given a chance to speak directly with Peter Moore and get some questions with him. Community leaders from Operation Sports, the The Bitbag, TQCast, SFX-360, 360 Sync and more got inside looks that were usually only reserved for larger press outlets.

And if you missed the blogs posted earlier, click here to check out yesterday's EA SPORTS Live Show and OTP action in Madden NFL 11.

Check back tomorrow for more from EA at E3 including today's EA SPORTS Live show featuring another live demonstration of EA SPORTS Active on the XBOX 360 Kinect, and Gus Johnson doing live play-by-play with Madden NFL 11.

That's it for now...we're off to the Strikeforce MMA event tonight at the Nokia Center and then who knows what the night brings. May want to follow me on twitter for a fun tweetphoto or two
