Sports Center debuted the first look at Madden NFL 25 on Xbox One and PS4 earlier today. In the video above, a much clearer representation of the game can be seen (EA, Madden NFL 25, Next-Gen, PS4, Xbox One)

There's still a small following who play NLF2K5 and update the rosters/stats accordingly. Heavily recommend buying it

NFL wont allow it. They announced a while back they are only licensing their product to Madden.

They should get a hold of the NCAA license since they dropped ea. It wouldn't be as big sales wise, but I'll be very happy to see 2k football return.

Sony or Nintendo or Microsoft can make their own NFL game if they wanted to.
Saigon  +   200d ago
@3-4-5

They can make it, but they can't use the license; They would have to make a random game with the mechanics. unless they are able to pull the NCAA license, which I doubt they would do, because they do not want the same fiasco as what happened to EA.

Sports are more interesting when they are named after what you do in the sport.

Maybe that's why Football is the most popular sport on the planet. Much more than the American version of Rugby.

The NFL EA Contract ends after this current season so they would have to renew or they could strike a deal for an NFL2K comeback as well.

Next year we will see next gen sports titles. Everything now is being developed side by side with current gen.

MLB the Show next year for PS4 will be the beginning of next gen sports if you ask me but 2k14 for PS4/XB1 is looking good also.

The Show...wholly crap I know that game will look and play great. I can't say I wholly disagree with you about it being the start of next gen sports titles.

I shudder to think what will be done on the PS4 with that title. The Show was the first title I bought for my PS3. Only skipped the last two iterations.
GiggMan  +   200d ago
@WB... The Fight Night series with Ryse quality characters would also be awesome.
theWB27  +   200d ago
Sadly they aren't developing Fight Night...instead strictly with UFC for the forseeable future.

@Omegasyde
The vid was just updated. The animations were a little let down. It's also the little things that count...like how the helmet is separate at the 34 sec mark.

Umm did you see NBA 2k14 Nex Gen? NO????

Yeah didn't think so...
WATCH THAT NOW... At 1080p and remember it runs @ 60 FPS.. Just Saying.
Omegasyde  +   200d ago
Its next gen -- Here's how to tell.

Look at the fans in the audience. They are no longer SUPER pixalated, the fans now are Less Than SUPER pixalated.

Besides that, the animation look like current gen. EA next gen games (first outings mind you) look like crap and seems to be a tradition.

Just not impressed with these graphics, I'm not seeing much of a jump. Even the sub-surface light scattering on the skin mentioned in the video isn't as realistic looking as it is in other next gen games.

Maybe I'm expecting too much :/

Whatever happened to all those old arcadey sports titles like NFL Blitz? Is there anything like that still in existence?

Are EA really going to throw all the consoles power into this game ? No because every year they add to the game & while the hardcore continue to pre-order they're Ps4's & Xbox Ones the vast majority will not be upgrading there consoles next year so it makes sense for EA keep the cost down while still keeping there fans .

Madden, still broken since 2006.

Kevin26385  +   200d ago
People are comparing this to current gen and there are differences. Also, EA SPORTS official account retweeted Sportscenter...it looks like it is next-gen.

I bought madden and I must say....its okay.

Good honest comment have a Bubble .

The only next gen sports game that looks promising is NBA 2k14
LoneWolf019  +   200d ago
Yeah because we've seen all but 5 seconds of it.
iPad  +   200d ago
Those 5 seconds look better than Madden and Fifa.
LoneWolf019  +   200d ago
to fast for me to tell really, so i shall reserve judgement for when there is a real trailer. Im a bit 2k'd out to be honest, think i may go nba live this year just to check out what they have been up to
gedden7  +   199d ago
And that 5 seconds BLEW AWAY EVERYTHING!!!!!
gedden7  +   199d ago
Have fun with a retard game like live made by retard devs for retard gamers...

So if you want to waste money on live just because you've been playing the best sports sim on the market for the last few years then, you are a reeetaa

I not even gonna finish it..

They have since released an official next gen video. ESPN confirmed as current gen version

ahhh the wonders of next-gen...

Next gen grass next gen smoke next gen dogs...oh and FISH AI!!.......I hope with their 2nd attempts at a next gen game they come up with something a bit more useful...LIke Better AI and Animations

As long as folks are buying the current gen version, the next gen version will be crap. That's just how Tiburon rolls...

Yep madden didnt start any useful improvements til about Madden 10-12

We didnt get a physics based engine for madden til last year...a full 6-7 years into this gen..... sad just sad

this is why it isn't good to have a monopoly on a genre. With no competition from anyone in the football game, they can put out whatever they want. Especially if it's the only licensed FB game on the market, they know if people want to play FB they have to buy their game...smh

If you don't like football then why bother reading the article. Do football fans go into hockey articles and complain that there isn't enough grass?

That must be the Wii U version designed entirely around the Wii U. Otherwise this looks awful for a PS4/XboxUno game.
Kevin26385  +   200d ago
I updated the article to include news that Sports Center did not encode the video correctly which explains the quality. EA SPORTS has since posted a new blog and trailer which looks much much better.
Feldman9000  +   200d ago
That's fine, but that doesn't explain the crap animations and the lack of different player sizes.

what's with EA games never having good replay systems? These cameras are awful. Go watch NFL 2K5 half-time show replays and they're 100X's better than this. And that game is 8 years old. Pshh... EA.
MAULxx  +   200d ago
EA, they never show gameplay. Well, they show it but they zoom way in on the players. Let's see what it looks like, ya know, when your actually playing.

Where is the PS4 / Xbox 1 versions.... every other game that's going to be released in November, is showing trailers, and giving info on their game, but there has been NOTHING from Madden 25. They're just going to put some crap on the shelf and we're just going to give up 60 dollars. I rather throw 60 dollars in the trash than use it to purchase a Madden.
jmc8888  +   200d ago
It looks better then last gen, but that isn't saying much.

They are putting alot more effort then they did into the first Madden on 360, but it looks lackluster because they've been doing everything to the same scale for so many years. Needlessly.

Oh they're manning up with (if nothing has changed behind the scenes) having Madden 25 for PS4/XB1 be full featured as compared to Madden 360 which was a joke. But they dropped the ball on next gen sports graphics limiting themselves only to the 360/PS3/Wii all these years.

This is why on the sports front they are seriously lacking with next gen sports games.

A guy in the video said something to the effect....we can do more then we could ever do before.

They actually said that. They could of made a more powerful version in 2008,09,10,11,12 if they wanted to. 2k did.

EA Sports USED to make PC games. If they had continued doing so after Madden '08 (so 2007), then they would have been able to do better then this on PC years ago. Like 2010. Now they have all this additional power and are at square one.

This shows why NOT making PC games has left their 1st iteration next gen sports games looking like crap. EA sports hasn't had to deal with how a sports game should look with more power. They haven't had all the years of making HD sports games like 2k has.

To be fair they increased the motion capture technology a few times so players would look more lifelike. But that's not better graphics or new features based on the additional power.

Look at the 2K sports games on PC. They look alot better then this and have for years. I concur with others that 2K next gen sports games on consoles should start out looking pretty sweet. It's because they kept pushing the bar every year. The effects of all these years of stagnation is very apparent in Madden 25 for PS4/Xbox One.

I'm looking to get the PS4 version, but I'm not sold on it yet. Only because it has been many years since I bought a Madden.

Used to buy every year from Madden '92 to Madden 360. Genesis, SNES, N64, PC, 360. But by then they had stopped trying on the PC version, and once they canned that a couple years later it's just been stagnation. The physics change is really the only thing you can say was a decent change the whole generation and it just popped up last year and was probably their stepping stone to this generation.

Wtf are you talking about? He's not saying "we're lazy" he's saying "We're able to accomplish more now than ever because of the extra power"

You really misconstrued his comment THAT badly??

thanks ESPN for making them actually release some content with your screw up. The screenshots they added have Manning and he looks like he's taking a dump. lmao. Thanks EA, embarrass my QB why don't ya!

That was considered next gen?

Lame, that looks like what Xbox and PS3 should look like at its full potential but because its EA, they need more horse power to pull off what they cant do with hardware that is capable of that now.

We Need Sega Back, we need, NFL2K back

Hopefully they can finally render some good crowd animations and actual 3D grass. Not going to judge Madden 25 on nextgen that hard because Madden 15 should be the real deal.
