By most standards, Madden NFL 15 was the best game the series had seen in more than five years. It wasn't a giant leap forward, but it cleaned up some legacy issues and didn't introduce more than one or two (user sacks, we're looking at you).
Yet, the game's most noticeable flaw is that we haven't seen that leap forward that Madden so desperately needs. The series fails to take any big chances and the ones it does take aren't particularly loved by consumers.
With that in mind, let's look at Madden NFL 15's big back of the box additions and review what worked and what didn't work for consumers...

While not was initially expected, this isn't a horrible business plan and practice. Such huge additions to the game being added for free was an unrealistic expectation. The only quibble I'd have is the communication of that fact was not clear from the get-go (and from the latest post it still isn't clear), as I'm sure most customers would not have minded the idea of having to spend some extra money had it been clearly communicated at the onset.
Regardless, what do you think of The Golf Club's decision to charge for Season mode and additional themes in the newest DLC update?

Sony Computer Entertainment America has scheduled the MLB 14 The Show online servers to close on June 18, 2015 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita systems. The game was released just over a year ago for PlayStation 4 users on May 6, 2014, while it released on April 1, 2014 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita users.
For those of you that are curious, SCEA terminated the MLB 13 The Show servers on November 6, 2014.
MLB 15 The Show is scheduled to release on March 31st.

Layoffs have hit Evolution Studios, according to Eurogamer, as they continue to focus on the PS Plus edition of Driveclub, which was officially delayed way back in October.

If there has been a theme to the recent MLB 15: The Show live streams, it's that the development team is focused on the details. From skin tones to lighting, the new additions reinforce the idea that The Show is a series which gets a lot of the "little things" right.
There's a dual danger to this approach though, albeit one mitigated by Sony San Diego's commitment to a deep and transparent marketing strategy: casual users may miss these minute improvements, while long time fans can find plenty of details that are still missing.

We've done enough reporting on a game we know next to nothing about (including the development studio's name) to make you think we've gone mad.
With that said, we are curious as to what kind of interest even exists for a second football title and under what circumstances would the most hardcore sports gamers be compelled to buy an alternative.
This poll will require a lot of creative assumptions to work, but in the event a theoretical Joe Montana Football game is even a thing for consoles (which isn't a sure thing), would you consider buying it?
Sound off by voting on the poll to your right (or above you in the forums) and give us your must haves in the comments for you to consider buying another football game!!

A pre-Alpha build of Mutant Football League appeared last week at Game Connection America and the Game Developers Conference, revealing more details about its ongoing development.
Gamecrate captured some off-screen footage at Game Connection America, which features Michael Mendheim (the game's lead designer) commentating.
Mendheim mentions that the team's target release date has shifted to Q1 2016, sometime before the start of the NFL's Super Bowl.
