Feature: Mad About Madden - Then and Now

Push Square: "With the United States bracing itself for its annual football frenzy in the form of the elaborately named Super Bowl XLVIII this weekend, we’re avoiding predictable prophecies regarding likely victors, and instead looking a little closer to home. While the game of American Football has always remained something of an underground pastime compared to its more spherical counterpart here in the UK, the sport actually made an unlikely stretch for stardom in the early ‘90s on the back of a SEGA Mega Drive title and a Mean Machines magazine cover story. In this feature, veteran writer Paul Davies considers the impact that John Madden Football had on changing British perceptions of the sport – and also the journey that the franchise has taken throughout its illustrious 25 year history." (Madden NFL 25, PS4, Retro)

Madden is an afterthought, 2K football returns feb 3rd......before anybody mentions about the so called conference call EA made about having several more years of the license, yes a general deal (which even that is still a mystery)....not an exclusive one.

If an exclusive deal was made, EA would be sure to make a big announcement for it on espn.com, nfl.com and of course the gaming sites (ign, gamespot, n4g) like they always did every year.
