Like It or Not, the Wheaties-Box Era of Video Game Covers Is Over

Kotaku - Looking over the field of candidates for the Madden NFL 13 cover, I'm thinking of what William Munny said before he shot Little Bill in Unforgiven: Deserve's got nothin' to do with it.

That's not to say all of the 40 candidates announced so far are meritless underperformers or lack star power. But when you've got a kicker and a punter in this contest—from the same team, so one is assured of winning at least one round—it dawns on me that the Wheaties-box era of video game covers, initiated by this game, may be behind us.

The story is too old to be commented.
