Ok, so a couple weeks back we wrote about the upcoming Madden NFL 10 Xbox 360 and PS3 versions. Now with Madden’s release coming out tonight let’s finish this preview of the next Madden game up with everything you’ll need to know if your a PS2, PSP or Wii owner. Come on, you know you wanna hit the read link to see what’s knew so watch’a waiting for? Get to it!
It’s July 22nd, and the next version of the awesome Madden franchise — Madden NFL 10 — is expected to drop in about 3 weeks (August 14th). Therefore, you Madden fans out there are begging for the newest features absent from its predeccesor, Madden 09. (However, if your are a true Madden die-hard as I am, you’ll be running home with the latest version anyway). To settle your anticipation, we present to you not the minor updates for basics and rosters, but some of the major updates for the Xbox 360 and PS3 models (updates for the PSP/PS2 and the DS/Wii versions will be posted in the next few days): new cameras, customizable gameplay, Pro-Talk, updates in both gameplay graphics and online play. Curious for more? Go for it– no extra charge.
Real Madden 09 cover with Brett Favre as a Jet
Well, I got myself a copy of Madden 09 on Tuesday, and after spending some time playing with it I must say that it is a very worthy successor to the Madden franchise. Wanna know more on this game and what I liked and didn’t like about? Hit the More link.
Is this the latest Madden 09 cover?
For those of you who don’t know (or follow football), the Green Bay Packers legendary Quarterback- Brett Farve- is the cover boy of Madden 09, and now the new QB of New York Jets (via a trade last night between the Packers and Jets after a seemingly endless saga of Favre’s retirement/ un-retirement and general “fight” with the Packers- for those of you who would like to know more on this, check Sports Illustrated). Now this trade of Favre to the Jets last night left a few questions to be answered by EA Sports (makers of the Madden franchise): 1. As the title of this post says: does Favre stay a Packer on the cover, or does a new cover come out with him on the Jets? 2. Are you going to be ready to play with Favre on the Jets right from the launch of Madden? For the answers, hit the More link.
Screen shot of Madden 09
Well, I know I sure am lol. Anyways, wanna get a sneak peak or some quick practice time to brush up on your Madden skillz before the release next week (August 12) of the 20th edition of the popular football game- Madden 09? Well if you are an Xbox 360 owner with access to Xbox Live (either free- Silver membership, or paid- Gold membership), or a PS3 owner with access to the Playstation Network (its free with Internet access), then you are in luck. All you gotta do is go to your respective online store and head to the Sports games part and you should see a Madden 09 demo ready to be downloaded.
Lemme just tell you- I’ve been playing this on my own 360, and while the demo is short (you do this new Madden IQ to find your playing level, and then you play a “Madden Moment” of the Giants 4th quarter drive with 1:36 left in last year’s Super Bowl) it shows a lot of promise on how GREAT this new game is gonna be (of course I wish they let you demo a full game like they did in past years, or at least give you a drive on defense to protect the lead if you score). Whatever, only one week till the full version is out
We’ll have more on Madden when it launches next week, but in the meantime go try it out and let us know what you think bout the new game (and any other thoughts you may have on the upcoming NFL season) in the comments.
