EA's sports titles have undergone a bit of a renaissance of late. Fifa is the top dog, NHL is the best sports title on the market, NBA while being behind 2k's effort is still very nice to play. Madden is the only choice when it comes to NFL. So it is no surprise to see EA try and build on this success and tap other markets. XBLA is the platform and the focus is on the word 'Arcade'. The release of NHL 3 on 3 Arcade was the 1st foray into XBLA sports for EA. It was a fun game that used the main game's engine and was ideal for a small blast. It was successful enough to encourage the release of Madden NFL Arcade.
