EA SPORTS Bio Awards for Playing MoreLike playing EA Sports titles? EA wants to reward you when you play as many of them a humanly possible. EA SPORTS™ Bio New in all 2004 EA SPORTS titles is EA SPORTS Bio, a comprehensive customer reward system that credits sports gamers for their gaming across the EA SPORTS lineup. EA SPORTS Bio awards points based on the total number of gameplay hours logged, the number of EA products owned or rented, and the number of games played and won for each product. The points are saved and tracked on a file on the player’s memory card or system memory, and these points then unlock specific rewards for each product. Rewards range from simple extras at lower levels such as new team jerseys, player cards, or cheats to new stadiums, game modes, and teams at higher levels. EA SPORTS Bio is available for EA SPORTS titles on the PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system, Microsoft Xbox, and Nintendo GameCube. Each game has a multi-tiered reward ladder that is consistent across all titles (e.g., the same number of reward points triggers a new reward in Madden NFL™ 2004 as it does in FIFA Soccer 2004), and the more the gamer plays and accomplishdes within each title, the more levels will be achieved. Participating titles include NCAA® Football 2004, Madden NFL 2004, NBA LIVE 2004, NASCAR Thunder™ 2004, NHL® 2004, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 2004, FIFA Soccer 2004, NCAA® March Madness™ 2004, and MVP Baseball™ 2004.
