ESPN Goes Virtual For NFL Analysis With EA Sports
It was only a matter of time before the TV networks would follow
professional sports teams that have begun to tap into the power of
videogames and 3D graphic imaging for analysis and training. ESPN, according to the New York Times, has spent the last year
working on a new technology with Electronic
Arts to create a system that will allow ESPN commentators to
interact live with realistic-looking, three-dimensional virtual players
as they pontificate about coming matches during broadcasts.
