1st Logo
(1991-1993)
Electronic Arts (1991) (EASN Variant)Electronic Arts Sports Network (1991) (Football Variant)Electronic Arts Sports Network (1991) (Golf Variant)Electronic Arts Sports Network (1991) (Basketball Variant)EA Sports (1993) (EASN Variant)

Nicknames
: "The EASN Ident", "The Sports Players"

Logo
: On a black background, we see the Electronic Arts logo (This time
, the square is pink, the circle is yellow and the triangle is light blue with "ELECTRONIC ARTS" stacked below it), zooming in and through the screen then the EA logo appears once it's done. Then each square with a sports player zooms out into each corner of the screen. The yellow square with the baseball player goes to the top left, the pink square with the golfer goes to the middle right, the purple square with a football player goes to the bottom center, the light blue square with a basketball player goes to the middle left, the orange square with a bungee jumper goes to the top right, the green square with a hockey player goes to the bottom right, the blue square with a tennis player goes to the top center and the red square with a soccer player goes to the bottom left. Once that's finished, a second later, the EA logo turns into the EASN logo (A blue rectangle with "EASN" in the then-current styled EA font on a white rectangle with "ELECTRONIC ARTS SPORTS NETWORK" stacked below it.) while all the sports pictures turn into one sport picture (depending on the game). Then the EASN logo zooms in through the screen becoming a blue screen.

Variants:
  • The Genesis version has a different animation. The EA logo doesn't zoom in and it's still and the pictures of sports players slide in instead. (Golfer slides into the middle right, Tennis Player slides into the top middle, Soccer Player, slides into the bottom left, Baseball Player slides into the top right, Hockey Player slides into the bottom right, Bungee Jumper slides into the top right, Football Player slides into the bottom center and the Basketball Player slides into the middle left.) Then all the players turn into a Basketball Player. After the animation is finished, the EASN logo flashes on the EA logo.
  • On John Madden Football, all other sports pictures turn into a Football Player picture.
  • On PGA Tour Golf, all other sports pictures turn into a Golfer picture.
  • On Basketball related titles including Bulls Vs. Blazers, all other sports pictures turn into a Basketball Player picture.
  • On some later titles (Including later copies of Bulls Vs. Blazers), the EASN logo is replaced by the EA Sports logo with "ELECTRONIC ARTS" below on a white square (See below). Plus on SNES, when the logo zooms-in the screen becomes red instead.

FX/SFX: The EA logo zooming in, the sports player pics zooming into different corners, the EASN logo zooming in.

Music/Sounds: A sports news report-like theme. While the players appear, a beat note plays each time the player zooms into a position.

Music/Sounds Variant: On Bulls Vs. Blazers, the beat note sound is different (which sounds like the basketball bouncing in a low tone).

Availability: Appears on Super NES versions of John Madden Football, and PGA Tour Golf and Bulls Vs. Blazers (The Genesis version has the EA Sports logo instead.) Also can be seen on Bulls Vs. Lakers, Jordan vs. Bird, One-on-One, and Team USA Basketball for Genesis. Don't expect this on early EASN Genesis games as those games used the regular Electronic Arts logo.

Scare Factor: None to low.

Variants:
  • On the Super NES version of John Madden Football '93, the rotating EASN logo appears in a center. Plus, each EASN logo appears one-by-one from the top-left all the way around to the middle-left. Each EASN logo morphs into a blue square each with different sports pictures in gold style one-by-one. (Baseball on top-left, Tennis on top-middle, Golf on top-right, Hockey on middle-right, Basketball on bottom-right, Bungee, on bottom-middle, Soccer on bottom-left and Football Player on middle-left. All sports pictures become a Football Player and each square and then throws the football like a Quarterback.
