EA has announced that they will be hosting "behind-the-scenes" discussions with EA game producers about developing for Apple's iPhone and iPod touch. The company is also offering a sneak peek of their upcoming Need for Speed game at these events.

The events are going to be held at select Apple retail stores during December:

  • Sat, Dec 6th at 3:00 pm - SoHo, New York City, NY
  • Sat, Dec 13th at 2:00 pm - Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica, CA
  • Sun, Dec 14th at 2:00 pm - San Francisco, CA
  • Sat, Dec 20th at 2:00 pm - Chicago, IL

Need for Speed is expected to be released in December 2008.

    So if this is a behind the scenes thing, then the game will be out before the 6th? Because what's the point of going behind scenes you haven't seen yet, right? Right?

    I really want this to come out.

    I hope they will release the game before these events. Then it would be out until Friday next week.

    The company is also offering a sneak peek of their upcoming Need for Speed game at these events. That means it's a "Sneak Peak" so it probably won't be out till after the last event on the 20th. It's not a sneak peak if the game is already out, right? This is begining to SUCK!

    Probably they call it sneak peek because there is no other way for customers to test the software before buying.

    Great marketing campaign..... really? apple? maybe the could just make a demo....... I definately live close to all of those cities here in metro atlanata... (sarcasm)

    What about monopoly?!?

    My my, this is, indeed, incredibly silly. The fact that Apple and EA seem to think that this game should be demoed, sneak-peeked (or whatever you want to call it) leads me to believe that this might be the first game that sells for more than $9.99 at the App Store. There really is no reason for such a push.

    Regardless, I'm sure the game will sell quite a bit and live up to half of the NFS fanboys' hopes.

    Also, Wade, I'm asking the same question you are; Monopoly was supposed to be out "by November." They've got three days left before their premature words are eaten up.
