Madden 11 Copies In The Wild

Posted July 23rd, 2010 at 6:27 am

It was a false alarm when EA Sports was handing out free copies of Madden 11 in Times Square. It turned out the game cases just contained vouchers to redeem for free copies come release day. Even then though it wasn’t out of the realm of possibility that Madden 11 had been finalized and copies were beginning to be produced it still seemed way early to imagine the game was done and discs were completed to be handed out.

Now though we know for sure that Madden 11 has definitely been finished (aka “gone gold”) and it has entered the manufacturing stage though not having shipped to retailers yet. Both Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens have posted pictures with their copies (one has 360 the other PS3) in hand. It’ll be interesting to see if EA is more restrictive with the shipping this year as they were with NCAA Football 11, or if because it is Madden they will want copies out and in place with plenty of time in advance of release.
