NHL 11's gameplay producer Sean Ramjagsingh has told GamerZines that he believes implementing a real-time physics engine into sports titles "is going to be next big innovation in sports games" and "something we'll see all sports games go into eventually".

I gamed on the PC for many moons. But now-a-days, why would devs sink time and money into a platform that 75%+ of the users playing steal your money? I see where devs come from with lack of PC support. It really is a shame because PC version has potential to be the best version(graphically).

Real-time physics are already not used for this gen sport games?
Well that sucks not that I play them anyway :)

The physics are fine in their sports games, what they need to do is update the graphics. With Tger Woods, we are getting the same game every year with the yearly tweaking of the putting, add a course here, add a golfer here........

But not real time. Because all of their sports franchises are so old...if you have played them for over 5 years you see recycled, canned animations over and over. That being said, you are correct about the graphics. I think Madden still has graphics from 4 years ago. Tiger Woods did get some character graphics tweaks, but the courses still look pretty bland. FIFA and NHL seem to be their new darlings and they are really trying to take care of those.

sounds like mega milking

I agree Chak PC needs to come first.

glad they figured that out finally. only had to be beat to the market by a pointless tech demo to get the point.

Well welcome to the party. EA is not late but other folks have started this before them. They are finally starting to get the picture. Now if they can implement these physics in their sports titles "CORRECTLY" then this will put them back on the map b/c Madden nfl is horrible.

PC come first for a sports franchise? it's not even one of the genre that particularly benefits from graphical superiority or keyboard and mouse controls, so there's half the 'superior on PC' argument gone.

Not only that but 90% of the games base is on console, why? because and I don't quite like saying this but most of the kids playing the shovelware sports franchises are kids. 8-21 area. Not that others don't too, mind you, I'm just saying the stereotypical PC gamer isn't one that's even slightly interested in Fifa or Madden.
