EA Sports Planning Studio in Austin, TX

EA Sports, which currently has studios in Burnaby, British Columbia, and Maitland, Florida, is reportedly scouting locations in Austin, Texas, for a third North American studio.

“We have aggressive plans for expansion, and I will be visiting Austin, Texas, this week to assess potential space for a new EA Sports studio location,” COO Daryl Holt said in an internal memo obtained by IGN Entertainment Games. “Our goal is to attract, hire and retain the industry’s best talent.”

Does “talent” refer to people who are awesome at NHL ’94? If so, I’m updating my resume posthaste.

Walk on Makes Good

It wasn’t a great weekend for The Ohio State University’s men’s basketball team – the No. 2 team fell at Purdue – but one of their most famous alums had himself an okay time. Mark Titus, walk-on extraordinaire, got himself a deal… a book deal.

“My book contract w/ @doubledaypub has been signed. “Don’t Put Me In, Coach” will be out about a year from now. Do what you want w/ that info,” he tweeted.

Titus, whose epic Mr. Rainmaker is almost certainly responsible for the slate of trick shot videos, first came into fame and (not so much) fortune because of his blog, Club Trillion. He put Club Tril on hold in January to work on the book.

Unrelated, but probably relevant: Odds he’s involved with the Bill Simmons‘ editorial project? Extremely good.
