  • Madden NFL 15 Cover Vote Begins
    Posted May 9th, 2014 at 10:00 am 12 Comments »
    Despite the fatigue with cover voting EA Sports is continuing to roll them out and Madden NFL 15's opened up yesterday. At least in this case the field has been trimmed from the 64 participants to 16 and from lasting multiple months to just one. Votes can be cast through the ESPN Cover Vote page. Richard Sherman has to be considered the definitive favorite in this case. Cam Newton and Andrew Luck could provide a challenge, but the field in general is fairly weak compared to previous years...

  • There May Be a Special Edition Offered for Madden NFL 15
    Posted May 1st, 2014 at 1:15 pm 14 Comments »
    Special editions of sports games are rarely worth the extra money. One of the few exceptions was last year when the Anniversary Edition of Madden NFL 25 offered up a subscription to NFL Sunday Ticket. It's extremely unlikely that EA Sports and DirecTV will offer that same promo again but something may be in the works for Madden NFL 15. Amazon has added listings of the game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PS3. Interestingly they've gone out of their way to note them as "Standar...

    EA Sports today released the first form of official promotion for Madden NFL 15 with a teaser trailer. It features Luke Kuechly transforming from himself to video game character but the substance comes in the form of information. By now many consumers recognize early trailers for Madden display visuals that can't be trusted to represent what the actual product will look like. So instead of focusing on Kuechly the important details within are the release date and the pointing towards June ...
  • There Will Be a Cover Vote for Madden NFL 15
    Posted April 28th, 2014 at 10:00 am 5 Comments »
    EA Sports is about two months behind the typical marketing schedule for the upcoming Madden. To date the only real news relating to the Madden NFL 15 has been the competition to create logos and uniforms for relocated teams in Connected Franchise mode and that they're scanning player faces to improve likenesses. That changed today when ESPN tweeted the news that there will be a cover vote. It will begin on May 8th but no further details have been provided. When March Madness passed witho...
  • Start of Madden NFL 15 Promotion Has Slipped Well Beyond The Cycle Norm
    Posted March 28th, 2014 at 10:30 am 29 Comments »
    Usually by this point in the year not only has the upcoming Madden been officially "announced" but the marketing cycle kicked off with cover related activities. The trend of fan voting to choose representatives for the cover has lost significant steam as of late however and it seems evident now that Madden NFL 15 is unlikely to feature a tournament and may go away from fan cover selection completely.  (more…)...

  • The Most Valuable NFL Free Agents Heading Into The Next Madden
    Posted March 6th, 2014 at 4:45 pm 3 Comments »
    There is really no period of irrelevance for the NFL especially now that events have been spread out further to ensure something big happens every month of the year. The next in line is the start of free agency which opens up Tuesday afternoon. Madden ratings do not fluctuate much from the final roster update of the previous season. Players may or may not come in with the same exact rating but they'll typically be within a point or two of where they stood before if changes have been made....
