EA need to respond to the likes of Ubisoft and their move into the casual gaming market. As each of these gaming behemoths realises the world of gaming has turned, largely on the coin of the Nintendo Wii, they make efforts to claim their slice of the pie. This may sound a little clinical, but in hand we have a game of which we have reasonable positive expectations: EA Playground. The Wii version of the game turned out to be a pretty good collection of kiddie sports games, nothing as refined or direct as Wii-Sports, but certainly enough entertainment to keep us busy over Christmas.

As with any of these new franchises from EA, Boogie also springs to mind, one platform is not enough. The Wii version is soon ported to the PS2, and then downgraded to the DS and even the GBA. Today we have the DS version of Playground to look at.

Now the Wii is turning into something of a phenomenon, every one and his mum is looking to get in on the action. EA can perhaps be forgiven more than most as they came out of the gate with strong support for Nintendo's diminutive console. Early on they showed an impressive understanding of both their own titles and the Wii's controllers as they expertly backed in some waggle into Madden, FIFA and Tiger Woods.

Keen to capitalise on this promising early start they have more recently turned up with some original properties. These games are pitched squarely and farley at the Wii's demographic and look to provide a rounded experience that picks up not just waggle, but the whole Wii philosophy and aesthetic. Today we have a game in hand that stands alongside MySims and Boogie as an offering for both younger and casual gamers.
