I like it. Looks like it'll be very similar to the Vita version of Madden 13, which isn't a bad thing.

I just don't know how well this version will sell. Most people that want Madden will have Madden already. And the early adopters for the Wii U will probably buy Mario first with the limited left over money for only 1 or 2 more games. I hope EA doesn't view bad sales on the system as a sign not to make any more games for it. I think the tablet game pad has a lot of potential for sports games - easier play calls, subs, stats, etc.

The Infinity engine is just a tackling engine. It's not a real physics engine. NCAA doesn't have it either and they can still call it next gen gameplay. I do like the changes to IE after patch 3 but I don't think this was a game changing feature imo.

Yeah, the controller-specific features for sports games could get interesting with the WiiU. I think the Madden sales will be decent; yes people will mostly be buying the WiiU for the first-party games, but there will be people that want some sports games for this system, so I think they will sell.

Waste of time for us, but if the Johnny Jr's of the world think that is neat, it will be under the tree for xmas.

Who flips to get to use the tablet lol? I'm just waiting for my kids to fight over that controller when playing Mario.

Custom hot routes look awesome. I always felt like the hot routes were somewhat limited.
