Electronic Arts has released the official box art for the upcoming Wii version of NCAA Football 09, and it's definitely the most intriguing cover from the series so far.
hahahahaha! oh my freakin god. hahahahahah this has to be a joke
or at least alienate your fanbase
This game will flop on the Wii.
That's wiggity wiggity whack.
little bit too casual 0_o
I dont thing its meant to be casual or goofy. Its an actual mascot for a college football team. Michigan State.
Yes, but Michigan State isn't known for their football program. They may not even be the 3rd best team in their state.
Their mascot is one of the most well known in college though. But still, an odd choice.
Awww thats soo cute!. Perfect for the wii!.
See, it is hard for EA to use real college players for their covers, (college players can't receive any money from outside sources or whatever) So using a mascot is easier. In football games, they don't use the player's names, just the number. College fans will notice this instantly, which apparently the majority of you aren't. No big deal though, if I wasn't a football fan, I would have had the same reaction.
if that is the case, why is Darren McFadden (Arkansas) on the 360 cover of the game? In fact, the wii title is the only one with a mascot. 360, psp, ps2, ps3 will all use actual all star college players.
Who knew Nintendo was full of Spartan fans. Maybe next year they can just put Barney on the cover.
Well they have to appeal to the casuals and kids.
And am still scratching my head on this one... Is this an early April fools joke?
thats as good as the graphics the wii can handle
It will sell, it says "football", like if soccer games like FIFA go of the shelves because it has some soccer players on the package.
