This may seem a little different considering the types of games that are usually posted here, but bear with me this is really cool.
After a single letter sent by 14 year old Lexi Peters to the president of EA sports, you can now choose to create a woman hockey player.
Originally she got a standard response from the company, they didn’t have control over the license and that any changes like that would have to be approved by the NHL. Then the president of EA passed it on to the lead producer for the game, David Littman. His response was kind of refreshing and something I know I’d like to see from a lot of other people. He said, “My first thought was that we want to make people happy with our game. And here’s one girl who wasn’t happy playing our game.”
Now, by the look of things there could probably be a lot more customization to the figure, but the fact that this is now an option in a sports title is a pretty big leap and it can only lead to bigger and better things.
