Madden NFL 15: Super Bowl Edition Offers Discount and Ultimate Team Bonuses

Posted January 23rd, 2015 at 2:45 pm


EA Sports today released a “Super Bowl Edition” of Madden NFL 15 as a digital download on Xbox One. The game is being offered for $24 to Xbox Gold subscribers and $60 to those without it. It’ll be made available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 on Tuesday, January 27.

The “Super Bowl Edition” is the standard Madden 15 but comes with $20 worth of Ultimate Team content. That includes 10 Pro Packs and a Super Bowl Pack that feature rookie versions of Joe Montana, Reggie White, and Michael Irvin. The deal will be active until┬áMonday, February 2.

Madden 15 can currently be purchased new for $40 through Amazon and even back over the Black Friday period it only fell to $30. Those also wouldn’t include any Ultimate Team bonuses.

That makes the “Super Bowl Edition” at $24 a pretty solid deal, unlike the earlier rip-off “Holiday Edition”, but comes at a point in the year where market interest in Madden is just about to die off completely. That makes it a smart move for EA as they may be able to generate some additional sales out of this and of course getting anyone new hooked into the Ultimate Team ecosystem is a win for them as well.
