Inna sent me the following information relating to Michelle's computer game. Interesting! :) (Thanks Inna!)

I agree that the Michelle Kwan game is neat. I have a copy myself. I heard though that Semilogic (the company that made Michelle Kwan) is coming out with Michelle Kwan Online. It will be like the PC version except we'll be able to compete online and it'll have a chat program that's actually a LOT better than anything available to figure skaters and figure skating fans right now.

I understand that's coming (unofficially anyway) in July and officially in December.

In this week's ad for CompUSA, there was an ad for Michelle's Figure Skating Game. A picture of the box, plus the price of $29.99 was listed. I bought the game yesterday, but I haven't tried putting it on my computer yet. Reading the instructions, though, it looks really interesting!

Just days after being in the top 10 of a poll of most appealing athlete endorsers, Michelle lands another endorsement! Get ready to spend more time on your computer later this year. Electronic Arts will be releasing a figure skating game in time for Christmas "starring" Michelle! Players can either skate as Michelle or themselves by importing a photo into the game. The game allows players to create their own choreographed routines, design their own costumes, choose their music, select arenas from around the world and create scrapbooks of their skating and email highlights to friends. Electronic Arts is the world's largest interactive entertainment software company, and produce successful games such as SimCity. EA's Supervising Producer, Mitzi McGilvray, said, "We couldn't think of a better role model to have as we launch our first game for girls. We are honored to work with Michelle Kwan, who is a worldwide icon, respected and admired by millions of fans throughout the world." The game is targeted for girls from ages 8 to 13 (the first time EA is targeting that demographic), but this is one 19 year old that will be buying it!
