EA Sports: FIFA 2012 -
This video game is taking the beautiful game to a whole new level. The game creators are treated like rock stars, for very good reason. This video game is so close to reality that even pro-footballers use it to test their skills against the opposition. Enter the EA factory in Burnaby Canada and find out how these brilliant minds took the game of football off the field and turned it into a virtual masterpiece.
First, travel to the little village of Sant’Agata Bologna, Italy, where the “bad boys” of the sports car pantheon are hand-building the fastest Lamborghini ever – the Murcielago SV. Then head north for the royal treatment at the Rolls-Royce factory in England and see why each ultra-luxurious Phantom takes two months to build. Watch how IKEA’s Billy bookcase – 40 million of which have been sold over three decades – comes to be in a matter of minutes at an IKEA factory in Sweden. Shift gears at the Audi factory in Germany and see why the revolutionary R8 road car is forcing Hollywood to change its endings before racing to visit the birthplace of the iconic Porsche 911. Finally, fly south to Brazil where each New York Super Subway car gets over 2,500 welds before it journeys north to New York for assembly and final inspection.
