Trial for upcoming football game coming to XBL and PSN in two weeks; sampler includes rematch of last year's NFC Championship with Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers.
EA Sports' Madden NFL 12 was expected on the second Tuesday in August, but studio boss Peter Moore announced in April that the title would instead arrive on August 30. However, gamers won't need to wait that long to play the football sim, as a demo for the game arrives in two weeks.
EA today announced that a demo for Madden NFL 12 will arrive on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network on August 9. The sampler has players reliving the 2010-11 NFC Championship, which pitted the Chicago Bears against the Green Bay Packers at Solider Field in Illinois.
In reality, the Packers won the game. However, players will have four five-minute quarters to repeat (or rewrite) history. For more on the forthcoming football sim, check out GameSpot's latest preview of Madden NFL 12.
I wonder if they'll block the hit stick, juke, defensive moves & tip pass like they did for the ncaa 12 demo! it's gonna suck either way
Madden 12 go somewhere and die please! I haven't bought a madden game since Madden 10 thinking it would be a significant change, but nope its da same ol game!
This is still a pass, I picked up last years so I will not need to dump more money into this pit for 2-3 more years. I mean why pay $60 for a slightly improved version of last year, now with some useless gimick that will be omited from the 2013 game, and thanks to EA it will be incomplete, and I will have to purchase $15-30 more to get all the features that should have been included from the get go...
I have an old pc in a cupboard that can run madden 98 so I dont think I need to pick up the latest one
i doubt i will get this...i have madden 10 and this looks the same as that one...i think i will just keep playing madden 10
Show of hands: who's ready to play the same game they've been playing since 2004, with updated rosters and a shiny new coat of paint???!! It has always amazed me since then how gungho people are to play this series. Last one I owned was 2008, and that was given to me. before that was 2004, before that 2002, and before that 2000. They were all the same game LOL After the debacle that was the NBA Elite demo, I've pretty much resigned myself not to purchase another EA Sports football or basketball game. At least they can do soccer and hockey well.
For the first time in years, I didn't pick up a NCAA football title from EA (the demo didn't wow me). Now here's hoping the Madden demo doesn't disappoint. (Bonus for me! My packers are in the demo!!!)
The last Madden I bought new was for the Wii...... I'll get the demo just to see what changes have been made since the last years'.
im done buying madden. its the same game every year except with updated rosters. plus too many ppl still cheat
The demo has been out for almost a year, it was 60 dollars, called Madden 11, and released last August.
madden looks like another year of cut and paste with different letters under last years character models...I wonder what they are gonna focus on this year....maybe "REAL LIFE RECEIVING" where this year your WR lifts his left arm to catch the ball, or SIDE LINE SIT-DOWNS, where this year the "FANS SCREAM REAL PROFANITY" I know that ea has to release a madden for the stockholders to protect 4th quarter earnings but geeez.....OH yeah BIG F-in Thumbs up On SULAYMANQAZI comment
