Madden NFL 13 News Post


As everyone is already aware, the Madden NFL 13 demo arrives tomorrow for 360, PS3 and Vita.

Playstation.Blog has some more details about the Madden NFL 13 Vita demo, which includes a Super Bowl XLVI rematch between the New York Giants vs. New England Patriots.

Our favorite part of development on this title was incorporating PS Vitaís unique features. Iíll just say this: you donít know how much you need the touch screen until you get it in your hands ó you can use your finger to freely draw receiversí routes! We titled this feature Call Your Shots. Itís quick, itís fun, and it will make you forget about the old way of individually assigning player hot routes (which we still have for you traditionalists). It also works wonders on defense, too. Quickly send a Linebacker on a blitz or drop your Safeties back off into a deep zone. We love using Call Your Shots in head-to-head games around the office ó things get ultra-competitive when people here think theyíre an armchair Mike Tomlin. With the touch screen, we also let you call plays, select players, and easily put a player in motion with a swipe of the finger.

When we looked at the rear touch pad, we wanted to use it as a way to provide enhanced control while emphasizing efficiency. The rear touch pad lets you modify each defensive group and offensive line pre-play. You can also double-tap it to do jukes with the ballcarrier or spins with a quick drag of the finger. PS Vita just has so many dynamic features; it was fun getting a chance to experiment with everything. We ended up using the motion sensor function for kicking, and the camera for snapping your photo for inclusion in Superstar mode. As a Designer, itís really fun getting to play around with new hardware ó especially with the tool set this system has ó and finding ways to make Madden better.

I keep checking the Playstation store to see if it's up yet. I have my fingers crossed that it will be good. I bought my Vita for NCAA 13, NHL 13, and Madden 13. Since only 1 of the 3 is even being released i REALLY hope it's good!

Hey Woody,

Same here, I bought my Vita for sports games, but mostly for baseball. Did you try the Show? I was also hoping for a Tiger Woods, loved that on the PSP.

The Show is awesome, that's what gives me hope that Madden can be done well. I'm sure Assasin's Creed and Call of Duty will be cool on the Vita but the idea of hand held sports games is what made me buy the Vita. I'm really bummed not to get NCAA or NHL this year but if Madden is comparable in quality to The Show on the Vita i will be happy.
