Peter Moore promised that we'd see Madden on Facebook, so where the heck is it? Bitmob's Community Manager, Andrew Hiscock, may have just found out.
Madden is everywhere! You cannot escape it....
This might be the first Facebook game I ever play. Curious to learn more.
Huh. I'm interested.
Will there be a Madden Farm-ville crossover?
Hah! Soon enough...
You just found a blue madden!
Is EA going after the soccer-mom demographic that Farmville has cornered?
They're just going after the same type of person who plays EA Sports FIFA Superstars. That game has over four million active players, so it seems to be doing pretty well.
So what is this, like a facebook-ified fantasy league?
No, you build up a squad of players and then challenge people. Kind of like the Madden Ultimate Team mode on consoles where you use virtual trading cards and hopefully turn a crappy team into an awesome one.
Want to hear what EA has to say about this. I'm not quite clear on why EA would want to let people play any of their games for free, but maybe I just don't understand casual games.
