Madden 15 -- Coming August 26th

Teaser trailer:

Since I have a PS4 now, I'll probably pick it the next gen version instead of the 360. I hope that EA does something like last year and puts out a deluxe edition with the subscription to NFL Sunday Ticket. That was awesome.


I know Madden gets shit on alot in this forum. When was the last time a Madden game got good all around reviews from magazines and gamers? Seems like every season, someone finds something wrong with it & vows to never buy Madden again.

I know it sucks that EA has the monopoly on NFL video games.

Re: Madden 15 -- Coming August 26th

I love football and I always purchase the newest madden there is, but somehow this game nerver gets me...I pretty much always end up playing fifa then, eventhough I think soccers boring..

EA uses the same engine for motion in Madden like they do in FIFA, but I can't see any of that in Madden

I think Madden usually gets great reviews from magazines/reviewers, but there are always fans who feel like they didn't change enough, or get ticked off that they changed something too much (just like any franchise that comes out every single year).

There's no NCAA game this year, right? If they actually have feature parity on next gen (er... current gen) I might buy this year's.

No NCAA game. Franchise is dead.

That's why I stopped buying it every year...the last one I bought was 2012 for my XBox 360. And it wasn't much different than the version I had for my PS3 a couple years before that, or my PS2 a couple years before that. I'd love to see it get a complete overhaul, but I guess until sales drop, there's no need.

Re: Madden 15 -- Coming August 26th

Roster updates with new rookies, trades and free agents signings are supposed to be one of the biggest draws. However, I understand that it's kind of expensive to cough up $60 every August for a game that's only good until the following February. Then all those copies get dumped at the local Gamestop for less than half what was paid.

As long as sports games continue to be produced, they will always be seasonal games with short lifespans.

Sportscenter just said that voting is still open until 7pm ET

The athlete will either be Cam Newton or Richard Sherman

Re: Madden 15 -- Coming August 26th

I'm hoping that EA will release another deluxe edition like last season with the free NFL Sunday Ticket subscription with Red Zone. It was online/tablet only, but I have an HDMI cable connected from my PC to my TV and it was awesome. I bought last years game primarily for that alone and that was well worth the $99+ tax.

Re: Madden 15 -- Coming August 26th

After watching some of the gameplay demo I was impressed. I also listend to the operation sports podcast and liked what I heard from a guy who worked with nfl films and has helped them rethink the presentation.

I don't think it looks a whole lot different than the last PS3/XBox 360 version.

Yeah, that looks terrible. What is he doing anyway? Saying "YOU SHALL NOT PASS!"?
