No online multiplayer for EA’s Scrabble

  • By Mr Sandeman on Aug 22,2008

EA, Scrabble, Electronic Arts, Apple, iPhone, iPhone 3GFingerGaming reports that EA’s Scrabble, which they showed off last week during a press demonstration, will only have a local Wi-Fi mode. When Electronic Arts announced the game for Apple’s iPhone many gamers hoped that this addictive board game would have an online multiplayer mode. According to EA it’s Apple’s fault that they can’t put an online mode in Scrabble because they haven’t made this ability yet. Because Apple doesn’t have the ability for online gaming yet developers are using other tools such as Neutron from Exit Games.

    Too bad, this could have been a great online experience. Scrabble has got to be my favorite board game :)

    Thats no use is it. What a catastrophic design fault. Do they not realise that online multiplayer gaming is a big deal nowadays, and in fact is considered standard functionality in the modern world??
