EA announces downloadable Madden Arcade for holiday 2009

6:52 PM on 08.04.2009


Remember 3 on 3 NHL Arcade, the $10 PSN/XBLA hockey game that hearkened back to arcade sports classics like NBA Jam and NFL Blitz? Well, it seems that NHL Arcade sold well enough for EA Sports to do something similar with its biggest franchise -- in a conference call today, Peter Moore announced that Madden Arcade is currently in the works. It’s set to launch during the holiday season.

No further details were provided, though it’s probably safe to assume that the game will be released on PSN and XBLA. However, Pastapadre points out that the Madden name alone could mean that the game will sell for more than the $10 that EA charged for NHL Arcade.

So what do you think, Dtoiders? Are you expecting something smaller than 11-on-11 with power-ups and big hits? And more importantly, is that something you might be interested in for $10 to $20?
