Great looking cover, that may sell a few games by itself.

Nice cover.

Looks like we got Ray Lewis, Emmitt Smith and Warren Sapp on there.

Absolutely amazing cover! Coming from a strong graphic design background I can tell you this one hits on so many levels.

I must say the logo is very, very strong; in fact, it reminds me exactly of the NBA logo which conveys the speed & movement of the game yet it's still very balanced. The logo will make the game very easy to market & brand. The name texts are very clean, crips and easy to read as well. The player's pose has a very strong sequential appeal to it -- comic art -- with the layout being in-your-face. On top of that, the player is outfitted in the BB uniform so any potential buyer already has a flash of what to expect. And as other people mentioned, the inclusion of using #52 will immediatly subconsciously draw the football fan to think of current greats: Willis, Lewis, etc and being a LB, gamers will know what to expect: HITS!

Seriously, absolutely love this cover. I wish I could find out who the artist is.

Nice cover, but the more I watch the videos, the more I dislike the body models. They all look the same. The WR's look as built as the linemen.

Sweet after the longest day of work in a very long time, it was great to come home and see some wicked awesome BB box art! Looks promising, at least if the game sucks I got some good box art on my shelf. I think the game has a lot of promise though so I am not worried. They been working on the game for too long to disappoint.

It said $49.99 on one of the sites. That's not been confirmed yet as far as I know though.

I just hope we get more actual videos soon...it would suck if they don't release anything before release because they know all the sports fans here are gonna buy it without seeing anything ahead of time...

I love the cover but really think the logo is awful. I don't look at that logo and see anything but someone who referenced the MLB and NBA and made a logo. It just doesn't have much uniqueness to it.

Nothing against the game. I hope it does great, and I hope it introduces things we have come to expect from a franchise (Madden) that has lagged on (proper physics and player momentum).
