PSBlog Preview: Madden NFL 13 Coming to PS Vita August 28th, Snap Up the Demo Tomorrow

Posted by Danny Doeberling // Designer, Madden NFL Arcade
My name is Danny Doeberling, and I’m a Designer on Madden NFL 13 for PS Vita. The game is launching on August 28th, but I wanted to let you know how you can get your hands on the action early with the demo, starting August 14th. When designing Madden for PS Vita, the Dev Team set the goal of making the most complete Madden handheld experience to date, and without a doubt I feel we delivered it. Madden NFL 13 is visually stunning on PS Vita — seeing all the superstars decked out in their brand new NFL uniforms in HD on that gorgeous OLED screen really gets you excited for football season to start. The game is built from the Gen 3 engine, so if you are familiar with PlayStation 3, you will feel right at home here.

"Our favorite part of development on this title was incorporating PS Vita’s unique features. I’ll just say this: you don’t know how much you need the touch screen until you get it in your hands — you can use your finger to freely draw receivers’ routes! We titled this feature Call Your Shots. It’s quick, it’s fun, and it will make you forget about the old way of individually assigning player hot routes (which we still have for you traditionalists). It also works wonders on defense, too. Quickly send a Linebacker on a blitz or drop your Safeties back off into a deep zone. We love using Call Your Shots in head-to-head games around the office — things get ultra-competitive when people here think they’re an armchair Mike Tomlin. With the touch screen, we also let you call plays, select players, and easily put a player in motion with a swipe of the finger."

Why? This isn't Madden 13, it's Madden 12.5. I already played last year's game, so why would I want to play it again?

That's been my argument with sports games for a long time. I think team rosters should be released as paid DLC annually, and just come out with a new game when there have been some major changes. That said, can't wait to see how the game is on Vita.

Yeah, I get what you're saying about sports games being basically the same every year. The thing with Madden 13 on Vita though is it really is last years game. It's Madden 12 ported from the PS3. The only Madden 13 feature it has is the new commentary
