Over the past couple years there has been some disappointment over how certain stats weren't being tracked in Madden. The two main ones have been half sacks and assisted tackles. This obviously isn't being made out to be any sort of big announcement, but Madden 2010 will have these stats included. So while this week's info doesn't have the same punch as the one about the shift in ratings philosophy it does go to show another community request that has made it into the game.
Excerpt: "After talking about technology and philosophy for the past few weeks, we thought it was a good idea to actually show you a new feature this week. Now being that it's so early in the year, we obviously can't show big grandiose new features, so we wanted to show something that is in the game that came directly from community feedback and wishlists."
