To quote: Squirrelled away in the corner of the EA stand at E3 was a small room, and in the corner of that room, amidst screens displaying the latest Madden and NBA games, I got my hands on FIFA 11 for the first time.
David Rutter from the EA Sports development team was on hand to take me through the playable build.
"As always with FIFA we're looking to build on our success and refine the gameplay according to consumer feedback," he said. "The two things we're talking about today are Personality+, which is a holistic umbrella for how we've made individual players more realistic, and improved passing."
He demonstrates Personality+ by taking control of Andrei Arshavin in the Practice Arena. As you would expect, his feet are quick and nimble, and the ball is never far from his feet.

To quote: This week marks a truly monumental point in the history of PlayStation Home, as one of the world's biggest sporting events receives a dedicated space.

Afterwards, you and your friends can hop into the Photo Booth or shop for exclusive virtual items (such as your favorite team's jersey) from the FEVA Arena's unique Mall area - all from the comfort of your console.

Captain Your Country
For anyone who played UEFA EURO 2008, I'm sure you enjoyed CYC. So when deciding on game modes for World Cup we knew it had to be included again.

At about 8:00 am, my guest and I took off on our flight from Paris to Zurich for what was going to be one of the best, if not the best, days of our lives.
About 2 hours later, we arrived in Zurich, where we were met by some people from FIFA and a television crew that would film every one of my movements throughout the day.
Once introduced, we took a taxi to the FIFA headquarters. The first thing I noticed when I entered was the display case containing all the FIFA trophies, with, in the foreground, the world...
