We check out EA First Play at Highpoint, Melbourne

MMGN headed to the first stop on EA's debut "First Play" tour, in which it is taking its most anticipated games on the road so you, the gamers, can experience them first hand before release.

No more being limited to trailers and my very correct opinion.

The first stop officially begins tomorrow and runs until Sunday at Highpoint Shopping Centre in Melbourne. Unfortunately the second Victorian appearance was cancelled.

Members of the local media and EA community got to play Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Fifa 13 and some iPad offerings, with Medal of Honor multiplayer also available when it launches on Thursday.

Attendees were challenged to beat the lap time set in Need for Speed by EA community manager Jiggsy, which turned out to be a terrible 1:04. It was smashed several times, and eventually finished up with a chap named Dylan, clocking in at 54:43.

See if you can beat him.
