  • The demo for Fight Night Round 4 will feature Ricky Hatton vs Manny Pacquiao when it releases in mid-late May. Check out gameplay footage featuring the two facing off here.
  • As mentioned on Friday with the appearance of Larry Fitzgerald on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon there would be some Madden 10 gameplay on display. You can watch the interview which includes some highlights shown here. There is also bonus footage of Fallon playing the game backstage here.
  • Backbreaker was an intriguing concept when the game was announced way back in 2007. Since then it has pretty much gone into hibernation. It may be starting to emerge now as Gamestop has added Backbreaker to their database. The price is posted as $49.99. There is a release date listed of 10/1 however this appears to just be a placeholder and likely only points towards a fall/winter release. Hopefully Backbreaker makes an appearance at E3.
  • With all the discussion around the 360/PS3 Madden 10 video the one for the Wii got overlooked. You can watch that here. I’m under embargo until Wednesday but I will say that I like the direction they’ve gone with the Wii version this year.
  • EA Sports Complex in Playstation Home is now available. Right now the Complex features the poker and racing mini-games with the golf one coming in the near future.
