  • This video from shows LaMarr Woodley and Nnamdi Asomugha getting a 3D head scan for Madden 11 while in Miami for the Super Bowl.
  • It appears Backbreaker has finally settled on an official release date and is scheduled out May 18th. With this date it avoids releasing directly against UFC (25th) but does have to go up against Skate 3.
  • Kotaku has an article about the players who crossed the picket line in 1994 and remain banned from the MLB Players Association. They still can’t be included in the video games and have always been replaced by fake players with their attributes.
  • Another interesting read, this one from Wired, talks about how games like Madden have shaped a new generation of athletes.
