FIFA STREET MARKS THE START OF THE STREET REVOLUTION

It’s no longer enough to win – You have to win with style.

Chertsey, UK - Friday, October 8th, 2004 - Electronic Arts (Nasdaq: ERTS) announced today that FIFA STREET is scheduled for release next year under the EA SPORTS BIGTM brand. The game is being produced by Electronic Arts Canada, the studio which also is home to the industry-leading FIFA Football videogame franchise.

FIFA STREET is a highly-anticipated combination of arcade action blended with the culture of freestyle street football. By removing the rules from the simulation football experience, FIFA STREET exposes the heart of the world's beautiful game, on-the-ball flare and individual style.

Leading this movement are the worlds top professional players, showing off their skills and individual style in 4-on-4 match-ups against the backdrop of global venues that represent the true culture of street football. As the first game to support dynamic 1-on-1 encounters, beating your opponent will require skill, technique, and the careful selection of specific moves. As a gamer you'll take on the best and be required to earn their respect, gradually building your reputation and team into an unstoppable force that leads the tide of street football.

"What FIFA STREET represents is a movement in football and a break from the modern game," says Wil Mozell, senior producer for the project. "We are stripping the sport down to its core and delivering a game that's all about freestyle attitude and individual skill, something I believe is at the heart of every football fan."

Developed by EA Canada in Vancouver, B.C., FIFA Street is scheduled to ship next year on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the XboxTM video game system from Microsoft and the Nintendo GameCubeTM.
