    There hasn't been much movement over the last six months towards the potential for a return of college video games. For that to happen a new system will have to be put into place that allows collegiate athletes to be paid for their likenesses while retaining eligibility. The Supreme Court's decision on O'Bannon vs NCAA kept things in limbo, leaving the action brought by attorney Jeffrey Kessler as the next best hope for change. That case had a major development today as Judge Claudia Wilk...

    The first EA Sports game from 2017 has now reached the Vault in EA Access. Madden NFL 18 was added today making it available in full to all subscribers.

For $30 a year or $5 month-to-month, members get unlimited access to the back library of EA games on the console which in addition to Madden NFL 18 now incl...

    Over 12 years have passed since the release of Madden NFL 06 but the mere mention of the title still conjures up emotions from sports gaming fans. From an industry standpoint it also could be cited as being a major contributor to a turning point around that time in consumer distrust with not just what publishers would say about games before they released, but also what they showed. Former lead designer for the Madden NFL series Ian Cummings joins Bryan Wiedey and Rich Grisham to discuss t...

    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...

Mutant Football League has now reached consoles after first coming out in late 2017 just on PC. The game is being sold for $20 (XB1 - PS4) which is $5 cheaper than it was first priced at for PC. Those who contributed to the Kickstarter at a tier that included a copy of the game should be receiving a digital download code ...

    The roster update reflecting performances through Wild Card Weekend is now available to download in Madden NFL 18. Typically once into the playoffs the ratings changes implemented will primarily affect those participating in the postseason games with a few random lingering adjustments being made to players who have finished their season. Strangely this update is made up mostly of changes to the ratings of punters, many of which have seen fairly dramatic adjustments to their Awareness and ...

    EA Sports today released yet another patch for Madden NFL 18. There's only a few changes but they could be significant as they directly impact gameplay. Besides one fix to random instances where CPU ball-carriers would run super slowly it appears they are primarily directed at balancing with the competitive eSports and online head-to-head crowd particularly in mind. ♦Addressed an issue that was causing some AI controlled ball carriers to move slowly and/or not perform special moves ♦...
