  • $20 GOAT Super Bowl Edition of Madden NFL 18 includes bonus Ultimate Team content
    Posted January 19th, 2018 at 1:30 pm 1 Comment »
    This marks the fourth consecutive year that EA Sports has released a Super Bowl Edition of Madden NFL on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It's a smart move on their part as a simple limited-time price drop is not nearly as marketable as a "special" edition that packs in bonus Ultimate Team content that costs them nothing. For PS Plus and XBL Gold members the Super Bowl Edition of Madden NFL 18 can be purchased for $19.80 with availability through the end of the month. That's an all-time low pr...

  • NBA Live 18 is practically being given away now on Xbox One
    Posted January 18th, 2018 at 12:30 pm 17 Comments »
    Given the turbulence of the series over the last decade there was never a chance that NBA Live 18 would sell many copies no matter how good the game would turn out to be. Skepticism from consumers was more than justified and its competitor too popular and well established. Instead the goal for EA Sports was always to regain some credibility and slowly bring more people on board through word-of-mouth and by playing with the price. A pre-order discount making the game $40 was the first stra...
