After a trickling of games every few days, the absolute ultimate floodgate has finally opened releasing 8 games in one day. This begins the final Christmas where the original PlayStation is Sony’s main hardware. There are so many games coming out from today to December 31, 2000 that most credit cards about to be maxed out. Let’s gooooo!
Up first is our flagship release, Medal of Honor Underground. Electronic Arts’ follow-up to their first person shooter brings to light the more secretive civilian side of war.
If missile launchers aren’t your thing, how about a snowboard? Cool Boarders 2001 brings all the tricks, flips, and slopes of the annual series along with it’s final release on the PlayStation. There’s even a Sweepstakes to Enter for Day 1 buyers.
Next up in the sports realm is FIFA 2001, Electronic Arts’ yearly update to those who just like getting their kicks.

For the first time on PlayStation, the insanely brutal Ultimate Fighting Championship combat sport makes its ring entry. No fireballs, no hundred hand slaps, but god help you if you get thrown to the mat.
Our final game out of the EB Games bag is WCW Backstage Assault. A wrestling game that focuses on everywhere but the actual ring you’re supposed to be in.
