Laying Out The Upcoming Events and Coverage

Posted April 22nd, 2009 at 7:36 am


I’ve arrived in New York for a some events taking place beginning tomorrow. Here is what to expect for the remainder of the week leading up to a ton of stuff that will go on Saturday in conjunction with the NFL Draft.

  • EA Sports Season Preview Event (Thursday). Several games will be on display including NCAA Football 10 and Madden 10. There will be some embargoes involved and I’ll update on those parameters once I’ve received the details.
  • Draft Event Premiere (Thursday evening). There will be several athletes in attendance and the lovely Erin Andrews. Expected to be there are Michael Crabtree, Aaron Curry, Brian Johnson, Mark Sanchez, Matthew Stafford, Brian Cushing, Malcolm Jenkins, Knowshon Moreno, Brian Orkapo, and likely some more. I will have the opportunity to sit down and ask questions of some of them.
  • At 1230am (early Friday morning) the premiere video of Madden 10 will be featured on Spike’s Gametrailers TV. Soon after airing it will be available to watch online.
  • Madden cover reveal (Friday). The cover athlete will be officially unveiled with some accompanying hoopla.

Make sure to follow me on Twitter as I’ll be utilizing that for quick updates, various tidbits, posting (non-game) pictures, and even asking for suggestions of different questions to pose to producers and athletes. I will look to get an article up on late Thursday night or Friday morning recapping Thursday’s events. Again though I am uncertain of what the embargoes will cover so in the meantime outside of the announcements being made don’t expect a lot of game related content to come out of it immediately.
