EA TO DELIVER HIGH-OCTANE PSP MAYHEM WITH BURNOUT LEGENDS

Latest Chapter in the Award-Winning Burnout Series Delivers the Ultimate PSP Battle Racer

Chertsey, Surrey, UK - May 6, 2005 - Keep your eyes on the road and both hands on the wheel this September when Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) takes fighting on the road with BurnoutTM Legends for the Sony PSPTM handheld entertainment system.

Burnout Legends sets the bar for on-the-go automotive anarchy, combining the series' trademark speed, destruction and depth with new PSP-only features, gameplay refinements and connectivity. Gamers can look forward to eight gameplay modes, including crash, road rage and pursuit, with white-knuckle multiplayer via WiFi, and a GameShare option allowing players to wirelessly share a demo level of the game with friends.

In development by Criterion Games, Burnout Legends delivers updated versions of the most explosive moments from BurnoutTM, BurnoutTM 2: Point of Impact and BurnoutTM 3: TakedownTM, with new gameplay, new cars and new surprises.

"Burnout Legends is the perfect quick gaming fix for the PSP," said Alex Ward, creative director, Criterion Games. "As anyone who's played Burnout can tell you, a quick 30 second crash junction can be just as satisfying as a two-hour multiplayer session - and that's the hallmark of a perfect PSP game."

EA will debut Burnout Legends at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles on May 18, 19 and 20, 2005.
