Well, it was logical to give Sega the license so they could continue whit Mario and Sonic at the Olympics (by far the most successful Olympic video game of all times). Eurocom also did a decent job whit Beijing 2008, so I am actually happy they got the contract for Vancouver 2010.

I'd like to know what kind of sports we can play. I see only ski jumping so far.

I see on the official site there is now a tab listing the events. Somewhat dissapointing that there is no Hockey, Curling or Long Track Speed Skating or Figure Skating...which, at least from a Canadian perspective, are the featured events of the games.

Alpine Skiing

• Downhill

• Super-G

• Giant Slalom

• Slalom

• Ski Jumping

Freestyle Skiing

• Ski Cross

• Aerials

Snowboarding

• Parallel Giant Slalom

• Snowboard Cross

Short Track Speed Skating

• 500M

• 1500M

Ice Runs

• Bobsleigh - Two-man

• Skeleton

• Singles Luge
