GamesIndustry- Year in and year out, Madden is an event unto itself for EA Sports. The game is a constant chart topper in the US and it's one of the rare kinds of video games in the console space that even "non-gamers" will pick up at Walmart or Best Buy. For hardcore gamers and diehard pigskin fans, the Madden franchise hasn't brought much new to the table in recent years, and EA fully admits that, which is why this month's launch of Madden NFL 13 is so important.
not buying another nfl game until another develoer has the rights to it, Madden is terrible
It's one thing to state that they haven't done jack shit to the game since 05. It's another thing to do something about it.
If 13 brings a lot more than just the generic Madden experience, I'll pick it up and may consider purchasing 14.
Still, this might not have happened if the NFL didn't sign the exclusivity contract with EA and let EA and 2k Sports compete against each other.
That is what happens when you have no competition, your not really pushed to do anything. That is why 2005's version of Madden was pretty good, they were in direct competition with NFL 2K5 and both games were solid, though 2K5 was still better, even though Madden had the better cover athlete that year for sure.
I think Madden 13 will be a good game since they are using a New Physics engine (Infinity). I do expect glitches since this will be there 1st time doing this. with that said " i will reserver my final judgement until I see it for myself." But from what I have seen so far i'll be picking it up! psn: cedaridge / xbl: cedar4Thunder
They say this every year! "Oh we didn't push the boundaries far enough, BUT WE DID THIS YEAR! Look, the grass actually looks decent this time!" So lame.....
