TjJunior on May 22, 2013 at 11:41 PM.They do this for every console release, whats new? Lets not forget EA Sports 2000 cyberathletes!
kbomb1upc on May 22, 2013 at 10:10 PM.Everybody loves fried chicken, but Sergio knew why he made that reference.
Madden 25 will beat sales of Madden 13...oh sorry, that's all I have to say guys LOL
ncaafootball14markus on May 22, 2013 at 08:27 PM.sergio garcia wishes he had the skill of tiger.
wallofhate on May 22, 2013 at 07:37 PM.I'm skeptical on the fact that they will show actual footage at e3. The reason I say that is this cgi trailer they showed I figured was a down the road look on how (when they finally harness all is power of these next gen systems) will look like. I would be totally blown away if the 1st iteration right out the box looks anywhere close to that. Even the call of duty ghost wasn't a monumental jump in graphics imo. Side by side comparison definitely showed a difference but it wasn't like night and day as this trailer is compared to the Madden of old. I have a wish that I'm wrong but I'm not getting my hopes up
Feldman011teen on May 22, 2013 at 05:52 PM.If we get shafted on game modes, EA should cash it in.
JerseySuave4 on May 22, 2013 at 05:27 PM.So Madden 25 will get released on the PS4 with all the stuff we're getting in Madden 25 on the PS3 right? I'm getting a PS4 but I just want to know if Madden is worth getting for that so then i'll hold off instead of getting it for the PS3. Hopefully E3 clears this up.
Madden always sell. You 2k5 fiends are a minority. I will always say the game is the most overrated sports game in history. I owned a Dreamcast. Loved my DC over the PS. But when it came to sports games we played NBA2k over NFL2k5. It really wasn't that great.
We put it through the test. I have been running sports leagues since the C64 and 4th and inches. I've run leagues since the original Madden. I've played in professional leagues.
Seriously. Madden if you don't only throw screen passes and crossing routes has been a great game for a few years. If you really know how to read a defense it's a rally great game. Since most people only look to one side of the field or limit themselves to two reads. Your not playing the entire game.
You seem to be one of those 2k5 was the holy grail guys praying and praying for Madden's down fall.
Let it go.
I have no loyalty to a system or gaming company. I want to play the best game. Period.
I've also run NBA 2k leagues since the first game came out.
While the rest of you have been saying the game is great I haven't played a great 2k game since 08. When you actually could make a move in real time.
The game still moves on a delay online. That problem didn't appear until 10. Yet everyone keeps saying how great and realistic the game is when your not moving in real time.
For 2k to move slower than Madden should tell you your not really playing the simulation you think you are.
But I digress.
keshunleon: Madden 95 was horrible. The best Madden of the 90's was 93. It kind of went down hill after that on the Genesis. The Ps versions were never that great. When that happened we went to Madden on the N64. It was a great game. Ran a few leagues on that version. That's when NBA Live was taking over on the PS. Up till 99 Live was a beast. Then NBA 2k took over.
Kawaii Leonard is so beast in this game
inkcil on May 22, 2013 at 04:50 PM.Bottom line is that EA offered this trailer up. We didn't ask for this, we want to see gameplay. So the question is, then why did they offer this up? The answer is simple: to hype up the game and get us excited. But if the trailer is not exciting, then yes, there will be criticism, and rightfully so.
CubFan23 on May 22, 2013 at 04:20 PM.So tired of the EA smoke and mirrors show! Show us some actual gameplay.
Yeah if you're going to do really well in My-team then you will be spending a lot of VC. When you play My-team you think about making profit, just get really good players and win. If you want to know how to get quick VC you can check out Shake4ndbake's channel for his video
Reed1417 on May 22, 2013 at 02:56 PM.When I saw it I was like "Nope" I remember that first 360 trailer too well to even get hyped off this one. I need to see it run on the actual systems first.
JMP on May 22, 2013 at 02:10 PM.One thing I thought was funny was that the RT/LDE/LOLB instant-whip animation was still in the rendered trailer. On the whole, I wasn't really blown away by the images for Madden. I like the FIFA and NBA images better.
SmittyD81 on May 22, 2013 at 02:03 PM.Bottom line, we need to see this game run in real time to make any REAL guestimations of what the game may look like. We'll more than likely see more at E3, so I take the trailer with a grain of salt.
The_Wise_One on May 22, 2013 at 12:09 PM.At least the last generation Madden video looked good. This looked terrible. Stadiums and crowds looked awesome but the movement was just silly. Uhhh I fear the worst.
Can someone explain to me what this pass through is ??
"I think the system functionality of Xbox One looks quite impressive, especially with things like snap, multitasking, Skype, live TV (using a pass-through with your cable box)"
slick589 on May 22, 2013 at 10:37 AM.I agree with phantomremix the graphics seemed very cartoony. I hope that is not what they are moving towards on next gen.
onac22 on May 22, 2013 at 10:19 AM.NO NHL no sale.
phantomremix on May 22, 2013 at 10:15 AM.I thought the graphics looked a bit cartoon for all NBA, FIFA, Madden and UFC. look at the trailer again or the screen shots. The game play was ridiculous though. I liked that they talked about feeling more emotion in the game and the sidelines being more a live. Those are huge things. I personally think, improve the lighting a bit, improve the textures of the stadiums, the crowd and the sideline personnel and focus on game play, game play, game play. I remember Madden on Xbox having so many options and Madden 25 are JUST now getting some of those options. I hope they don't start from scratch again and giving us a bare bones game that is barely playable...
footballfan41 on May 22, 2013 at 09:58 AM.You are so true, they did it bad when 360 released...that video of madden with Vick in it still in my head today!!!!!!!!! and then you get the game and i was like WOW!!!!!!!!! not even close to the video they showed....
in the Big Picture...You know Madden going to Look the same on PS4 and X1,..so it really does not matter...If EA is sleeping with MS, We going to get the same game other then then maybe the Kinect is better on X1...
believeinnow on May 22, 2013 at 09:50 AM.If we haven't already learned that we shouldn't trust Trailers, than it's clearly shame on us. Thankfully though, EA has stated up-front that the in-game action was pre-rendered, so there are no surprises. The key should be those three vignettes they released which actually shows the technical side of things. There are some really interesting things in store.
The biggest facet is that all EA SPORTS games will be made using the same engine. That is crazy and awesome! If they can use that to build team and individual sports, it opens the door to so many cool things.
2K has never been whiling to talk about their engine for NBA 2K and/or MLB 2K and PES uses the Fox Engine, which was build for Metal Gear, so this is huge. I can't wait until NHL uses it for 15.
You can only take so much from the first look of these next gen consoles but I have to say I was far more impressed with the PS4.
when you compare the PS4 and XBox One I think there can only be one winner - from the standpoint of the gamers at least - and that's hands down the PS4. The PS4 is like lightyears ahead when it comes to the RAM and GPU and has a faster CPU too.
I need to have MyTeam explained to me. lol
So I'm in the 4th seed right now and my lineup is something like...
PG Tony Wroten, 62 OVR
SG Jared Cunningham 67 OVR
SF LeBron James 99 OVR
PF Andy Moletuire (I have no idea how to spell it) 62 OVR
C Joel Prizbilla 62 OVR
with Tony Allen, JJ Reddick, Novak, etc, cheap shooters or specialists on my bench.
It costs me 100 VC to play with that lineup.
But I see people with Magic, Bird, Lebron, Howard, The Dream, Duncan, Harden, Curry, Carmelo, Kobe, and A.I almost everytime I play.
How can they afford that?
I only make a profit of 150 VC Every game I play in MyTeam and there's no way they are making anything. They are losing like 8,000 VC just from one game! So do you play a bunch of exhibition games to save up for a game every other day? Or how does that work? There's no intro or info about it by 2k it seems like.
I play a lot of 2k, but it seems like almost too much work needs to be done to truly get into the top seeds. Either that or I'm doing it wrong.
XBox One: God, who came up with the ideas for this thing. Used game full price fee, the name, broadband required, PC style DMR.
EA: Nothing worth seeing really, all CGI, well all the games shown were CGI except Ghost and its on PS4, PS3, and 360 anyway
Personally, I believe that Madden 25 will sell. Anniversary games always sell well.
AS a 2k proponent, even I have to admit that the Madden development team is finding its stride. Madden 13 was solid, and the improvements were noticeable. Madden 13 was a few tweaks away from being a truly solid game.
Ive always been hesitant to buy Madden, but this year will be different. I wont be hesitant and will purchase this during the first week of release. Madden 13 showed me enough, which has allowed me to put some faith in the title.
sales will be higher this year.

Think I'll be getting it. Looks pretty good to say the least. Haven't owned a Madden game in @ least 5 years but continue buying the NCAA Football one. Might as well get both.
they been working on this new engine for few years now and this new engine only works on the new GEN platforms!
I'm not gonna get hype about this system just yet. EA Sports is pulling the same scam they did with the 360 launch. Remember this same type of video trailer for the XBOX 360 preview when Michael Strahan was shooting out of his 3 point stance and was trying to chase down Michael Vick in the Madden preview? Game play nor graphics ever looked like that trailer and I have been waiting for that realism since. I will not have my emotions played with on the "realism" of graphics like MS said they would do with the 360 launch. I will end of getting this system one day but I will sit back and do what all of us consumers should do...wait for the dust to settle and see if this is truly an upgrade to our gaming cravings or just another high priced social media driven device with no real gaming upgrades. I get it, everyone likes the new girlfriend and many already have a man crush on this system but as far as I'm concerned the jury is out!
im guessing the points was to just let people know that they plan on making these games for the new Gen this year and that they are coming with a brand new Engine made just for sports games and that video was just an example of what they plan for the engine to show not necessary the graphics more so the style.
EA did say that we'll see true in-game assets at E3, so we'll be able to compare shortly. But I agree; these kinds of trailers don't really do anything for me. I think developers do them because they have very little to show that is ready for prime time, and it's easy to build excitement and interest while protecting your game with "safe" footage like this.
Am I the only one who doesn't quite understand the point of that trailer? I was stoked at first, but then, as you pointed out, it becomes clear that this isn't actual gameplay footage. Uh, ok? So what am I supposed to take from that video if that ends up not looking anything like the actual games?
I guess I am just kinda confused as to what that video meant to accomplish.
I am blown away that EA came out with Infinity Engine for the last 2 or 3 madden on the 360, and released today a New Engine for madden on Xbox One,..
We all know they are putting in all they can into Madden 25 for 360, then they will port it to xbox 1 making it look better, then EA will ride that wave for less 3 or 4 years, Same ole Same ole EA......but we will get a better looking madden in it's place...
Welp my college hoops 2k8 stopped working . Looks like this project is done.
@HozAndMoose, I'm a big football fan but never was a Madden fan. I go back to Madden 95, there has always been so many issues and mechanics I never liked about the game. I would like the NFL to get ride of that license so we can see others produce a football game. I guarantee EA Sports production would definitely decrease with competition.
@T-Moar That is very true and very sad, but most people buy Madden because 2 reasons, its the only NFL game, and there's nothing that usually comes out during the summer all the way until october. This year is a must different story, there are several game of the year type games coming out with a month or two. Most people can't afford to buy multiple games a year, and if they do are they really going to choose Madden over say GTA V????? That would be stupid even for people who just buy Madden no matter what. M13 is the 1st game to just about match the sales of M10, every year since Madden sales drop ten to twenty percent each year by a greater percent. And I didn't mean to put die, I meant to say will this be the year there sales are so bad they kill off the 1 year deals with EA and make them have competition again. Madden sales drop every single year of late.
@HozAndMoose Sorry but your wrong about most the games i listed have multiplayer. Last of Us has a lot to do with weapon crafting and online, Saints Row has online coop, multiplayer unconfirmed, WWE always has multiplayer, BF is known for multiplayer, COD actually are going to a more BF3 type feel with there improvements this year (probably will still suck though) Splinter Cell has multiplayer, AC IV has multiplayer, Batman might (who really knows?) Skyrim is the only one which doesn't have some type of multiplayer. And even if you can beat those games in a week, most people can't afford a full price game a month, or even every 6 months. If they buy one of these games, and get more value its hard to afford a below average football game after you already bought 1 game within a month or two.
lhslancers on May 21, 2013 at 04:53 AM.This is an improvement on the original effort. Set gameplay to fast. Still the best looking and playing football game made to date. Not even close.
I originally thought this was going to be about John Madden dying, and I was all ready to call you a terrible human being.
That being said, the Madden franchise isn't going to die any time soon. They have a dedicated core of gamers that will buy Madden every year regardless of improvements just for the roster update so that they have something to do during football season. A substantial portion of these people aren't even gamers outside of the yearly Madden purchase. Until this market disappears, Madden is going to be just fine.

People dont buy madden because they have nothing else to play. They buy madden becasue the love football and there is no alternative. All those games you mentioned are strictly single player. Aside from that piece of **** CoD. And CoD has came out every year since 05. Last of Us will be beaten in a week if that. Same for Splinter Cell and Saints Row. Plus with the owner mode. Improved engine. Madden "looks" to be the best its been for a while.
2k baseball game is trash, i hope EA makes something that challenges "THE SHOW"
