New play modes for Wii sports games

EA unveiled plans to offer two unique control modes for future Wii sports games made by the publisher. "Family Play" will enable simplified control schemes for casual gamers while "Advanced Play" offers more control for experienced gamers.

"Family Play on the Wii creates an incredibly accessible and user-friendly experience that the whole family will enjoy," says EA Executive Producer Dave McCarthy in a statement. "While many fans love to control every piece of the action, novice players can have just as much fun jumping in to throw a touchdown pass, nail a three pointer or take a shot on goal."

The new play initiative omits the use of the Wii nunchuck focusing on basic moves only while Advanced Play includes nunchuck functionality for a full range of moves like in previous EA Sports games.
