Gamestop Madden Monday: Options on Demand

Posted April 28th, 2008 at 10:15 am

Continuing with their “Madden Mondays” blog feature for the third week in a row Gamestop has posted details on the picture-in-picture play call window. You can read the posting in full here.

To keep the game moving, the Options OnDemand PIP Play-call Window will streamline the flow of important information, like player and team stats, instant replay and even Madden Tips, which suggests a feature you haven’t used yet with a video tip explaining it. Think of it as the animated paper-clip thing from Microsoft Office, except it’s MADDEN! You’ll also be able to make substitutions right from the play-call screen or challenge a call with Coach Picture-in Picture.

The less time spent in a pause menu the better. It’ll be interesting to see it in action and how natural everything fits but it sounds like a positive addition. The overall presentation and game flow seem as though they have been heavily focused on for 09.
