  • IGN has a new video detailing the changes to GamerNet for Tiger Woods 09. The instant challenges should be a nice addition and the simultaneous online play will be especially welcome.
  • Gamespot has posted up two new videos from NBA Live 09. They show some pregame footage (though the introductions are skipped), the flipping through some of the DNA screens in the menu and about a minute of gameplay including commentary. Interestingly the tip-off has changed since the community event where it was a low camera angled up instead of an overhead camera as seen now. The first video can be found here and the second here.
  • I was surprised to stumble upon the cover for Madden 09 En Espanol which is set to release in mid-September. Bears G Roberto Garza is the cover athlete. *Insert Madden curse reference here*. At least this year the cover isn’t graced by an admitted past steroid user.
