Seems like EA is actually doing something good finally, now if they could fix the online gameplay.

How about they fix the entire series?

make the Green Bay cover limited and the Jet cover the second shipping? Have a little collectors item with the initial release.

Fans can print this new cover out and insert it into the case of Madden NFL 09. Fans can print this new cover out and insert it into the case of Madden NFL 09.

EA has impressed me this year. They have really listened to the community.
