40w ago - EA Sports Community Manager Romily Broad has announced that the FIFA 13 demo officially hits PlayStation Network across Europe today!
Below are the details, to quote: Good morning football fans. Rom from EA here to let you know that a free FIFA 13 demo will be available across Europe later today.
You'll be able to play as Manchester City, Arsenal, Juventus, AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund, and experience EA Sports' Football Club Match Day - a new feature that we think will drive the deepest and most meaningful connection yet between a videogame and the real world of sport.
FIFA 13 and the football season will be completely connected for the world's top leagues. EA SPORTS Football Club Match Day will push real-world news ripped from the headlines around the world into FIFA 13.
In the demo, real-world drama such as injuries, suspensions, team form, and media gossip surrounding Manchester City, Arsenal, Juventus, AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund will play out in-game and be reflected through in-game commentary.
Player form, displayed in detail within the team management screens, will change regularly, so if a striker is in a scoring purple patch in real life, or a keeper is leaking goals, this will be reflected in their in-game...
41w ago - Sony Marketing Promotions Specialist Michael Steranka has shared some fresh video footage today announcing that the EA Sports Challenge Series is returning to the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Attention PlayStation Nation: we're back with the biggest gaming tournament of the year - the $1 Million EA Sports Challenge Series powered by Virgin Gaming!
Last year, we blew the doors off of the sports gaming scene and now we're giving you another chance to take home huge cash prizes for playing FIFA 13, Madden NFL 13 and NHL 13.
To get a taste of what last year's experience was like, check out this video recap from the 2012 tournament finals in New York.
Last year in NYC, we made legends out of Adam Winster (FIFA 12 Challenge Champion), Tyler Glen (Madden NFL 12 Challenge Champion) and John Grasso (NHL 12 Challenge Champion). These gamers took home life-changing prizes and will be defending their titles in 2013. Bring your best game and you could be crowned this year's champ.
So How Does it Work?
This year's tournament structure has been simplified, so even if you've never played in a video game tournament before it won't take you long to get into the action. In fact, it only takes six wins to secure your spot at the live tournament...

In about two short months you will be able to play the much anticipated sequel to the first Sports Champions, introducing Skiing, Boxing, Tennis, Golf, Bowling and the new Archery event.
Since we are getting so close I'd like to take this opportunity to give a little update on the game. Right now the team is primarily focused on squashing bugs and adding some last minute polish. The finish line is in sight and we are very excited to finally get Sports Champions 2 into living rooms all around the world.
Once done, we hope to be able to take a quick breather before getting back at it again with some post-release support. I hope to be able to give some more information about that after launch.
Here's a reminder of some of the great content that will be...
