  • The NFL Head Coach 09 demo is now available for the PS3. I’m not sure how well a game like this is going to translate to the demo. At least it offers the opportunity to get a feel for it through the first full week of the season controlling the Colts including practices and the opening game against the Bears.
  • The FTC has given the go-ahead to a potential EA purchase of Take Two. The two companies are now talking about a deal. Since EA believes the window to take advantage of the holiday season has closed there doesn’t appear to be the same urgency involved.
  • FIFA Soccer Blog got the details on the demo for FIFA 09. It’ll be coming to the 360 and PS3 on Thursday September 11th.
  • Gametrailers has posted up the first gameplay videos for NBA 09 The Inside. Heat vs Rockets and Lakers vs Celtics. The crowd looks excellent but there still seems to be a lot lacking in comparsion to Live and 2K’s offerings.
  • I have my copy of Madden 09 for the Wii. Look for impressions and videos within the next few days.
