A petition on Facebook which was created on Friday has been getting lots of attention with over 2400+ likes in around 24 hours. It looks for EA Sports to take interest and develop a new GAA game for the Irish market.
There have been 3 games made in the past in 2005 and 2007 respectively, made by Australian based studio Transmission Games, for Sony’s PlayStation 2 in Gaelic Games: Football 1 & 2 and Gaelic Games: Hurling. They are some of the highest selling games in Ireland, despite being poorly received by critics and gamers alike.
But what if mega bucks EA were to develop a new title? And if EA doesn’t; who could breathe life into the great sports of Gaelic Football and Hurling video games?
Fair Play to the people involved and if you get a chance head on over to the Facebook page and like. Even big Irish gaming site,The Gaming Liberty, are passing it on directly to EA Ireland. If there are updates, they will be posted.
