Madden NFL 15 News Post


Both Amazon and GameStop have updated their Madden NFL 15 order pages with a new Madden NFL 15 cover.

Guess we'll find out soon enough if it's legit or not.

UPDATE: EA Sports Madden Twitter just posted it as well.

Your thoughts?

That's...weird, I guess. lol Are those gloves even in the game this year?

Soooo glad they offer same-day digital now.

Also - and as a Niners fan I would hate this - but why don't they use real NFL game photo's for the cover? Is this a licensing issue with whomever took the photo? I would think the best way to represent Sherman would be to slap a pic of him defending the pass in the NFC Championship on there. Having him pose just makes him look like he's trying too hard.

I'd say it's legit, it's in EA's typical style. It's actually quite similar to the ones Cubfan23 has been pumping out...

Strange pose though, it looks like he's doing karate or something.

Most likely - owning the content gives them free rein to do with it as they wish. Studio-shot photos also look a lot tidier, as they aren't taken from 50 ft away, and don't feature phantom reflections or source-less lighting. Easier to match the original vision for the cover if you shoot exactly what you want as well.

That's pretty bad. Maybe if he was doing the point to the sideline type thing, I could get it. But doing the makeshift Heisman looks really weird. Not to mention the grass they shopped in makes it look like he is standing in the middle of the field, sideways. Definitely not the best Madden cover there's been.

That pose is subliminally and subconsciously telling me to stay away from this game.

You would think a company the size of EA would be able to hire a graphic designer

they could and should just hire someone from OS.

EA sports covers are so bland. look at the UFC's cover for example its so dull and colorless. i would imagine that they would use more color so the game would stick out on shelves

I guess with the billion EA makes. using color ink is too much

That cover looks terrible. Glad I got a cover to put over it.

I hate the fact that they put the cover athletes on the cover purposely with the Nike team gloves. But when u play the game everyone is wearing that same ol tired speed gloves etc...SMH

And let's not forget. Nobody can wear a sleeve in the game but RG3.

I know I read somewhere that he was lobbying for EA to include his Legion buddies too, but they just wanted him solo.

It's not the greatest, but I'm not buying the game because of the cover.

yea I saw on pro football talk that some fans started a petition to get rest of legion of boom on cover and its not like they never had more then 2 players on cover few yrs back they had troy p and fitzgerald on cover so don't see why they couldn't do 3 players.

You can pick out EA games on a shelf from afar. They know what they're doing when it comes to designing covers.
