Rumors and speculation have surrounded this subject for a couple years now, but IGN and other sources claim to have reliable information that EA will make an official announcement on XBox Live support in the next few weeks.
EA is known for their multiplatform simultaneous console and PC launches these days. A Wing Commander game in the near future would probably appear on the XBox, among other systems. The comprehensive online features provided by XBox Live would be more than welcome.
Madden NFL 2005, NCAA College Football, NASCAR Thunder 2005, and NBA Live comprise the sports package for Xbox Live this fall. The non-sports games are less concrete, but as IGN has learned from several sources close to the company, Battlefield: Modern Combat, EA's new GoldenEye game, and perhaps Burnout 3 are first in line for Xbox online compatibility.If you're already an XBox Live subscriber, a whole bunch of people set games up via #Wingnut. Feel free to stop by some time.
