EA today helped kick off the launch of the PS3 with perennial hits Madden NFL 07, Need for Speed Carbon and Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 07, while on December 5th, it will add Fight Night Round 3 to the PS3 lineup.
“Today marks the end of the console transition. From here on out, it is all about great games,” said Frank Gibeau, Executive Vice President of North America Publishing at EA. “EA is dedicating its most powerful franchises to the launch of PS3, and in the weeks and months ahead you're going to see more games with innovative features reaching out to new audiences.”

Today, gamers and gift-givers nationwide can find these three games in stores:

Need for Speed Carbon

Need for Speed Carbon and the PLAYSTATION 3 introduce the world to a whole new way to play Need for Speed. The battle for Palmont City starts in the streets, but is ultimately won in the canyons as Need for Speed Carbon immerses you in the world's most dangerous and adrenaline-filled forms of street racing. The combination of the classic Need for Speed controls with the new, unique motion sensitive controller of the PLAYSTATION 3 takes the gameplay to a level previously not possible. The player will instantly recognize and feel the physics differences between the 50 plus Muscle, Exotic, and Tuner cars as they use their crew to win Canyon races, customize their cars using Autosculpt™ and battle to take control of the streets of Palmont. EA is leveraging the high capacity and throughput of the Blu-ray™ disk to store and stream our highly complex world; something that was becoming increasingly difficult to do on other forms of media.

Madden NFL 07

Madden NFL 07 for the PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system unleashes the power of PLAYSTATION 3 and provides a realistic next-generation football experience. Gamers can now experience Madden with high-definition visual presentation, more realistic player motions and physics, new motion-sensor controls and deeper gameplay. The SIXAXIS motion sensor controller puts complete command of your players at your fingertips like never before. Use the new PLAYSTATION 3 SIXAXIS controller to throw different types of blocks, to Jump the Snap, to Snap the Ball and to deliver punishing defensive hits. You can throw the perfect block and create a running lane with all-new lead blocking control, and then take command of the tailback and rip off a big gain.

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 07

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 07 features the thrills of championship Sunday and the most realistic looking golfers in a video game. By using revolutionary Universal Facial Capture or U-CAP technology, world class golfers like Tiger Woods, Chris DiMarco, Mike Weir, Colin Montgomerie, and Luke Donald have the same reactions, emotions and characteristics in the game as they do out on the PGA TOURĀ®. The game includes 12 championship courses and an all new practice facility where gamers will develop their drive, chip shots, and putting skills before heading out on the PGA TOUR. Gamers will enjoy the new SIXAXIS motion sensing system controller allowing a greater degree of ball spin direction and speed control. Simply tilt the controller in the direction you wish the ball to spin, the longer the tilt in the direction, the faster the ball will turn for more action on the course and around the green.

Available in stores today, Madden NFL 07, Need for Speed Carbon and Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 07 carry an MSRP of $59.99. Madden NFL 07 and Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 07 are rated E for Everyone and Need for Speed Carbon is rated E10 by the ESRB.
