EA's making half of its digital sales on sports microtransactions

EA has made no bones about the fact that the extra content market plays a large role in its earnings. A year and a half ago, the publisher said it aimed for $1 billion in revenue annually from selling add-ons. Since then, it has exceeded th...

Madden backed the Panthers to buck the Broncos (and was wrong)

[Update: Well, Madden was wrong. Contrary to EA's simulation, the Denver Broncos prevailed in Super Bowl 50, winning over the Carolina Panthers by a score of 24 to 10. Also, it seems EA has removed the video. Maybe the folks over there are ...

Review: Madden 16

EA goes way over the top to promote Madden

EA Sports' promotion of Madden has largely been the same for years now. Gameplay trailers, new features, interviews with developers -- we've been there and done that. This is different. This is...weird. And, kind of amazing. This is Madden...

Madden 16 screenshots lie about Marshawn Lynch dick-grabbing mechanic

Madden 16 used the above photo for Marshawn Lynch in its running backs player rating reveal. He is, naturally, number one at 96 overall. He cannot, however, grab his dick in defiance, as he is wont to do in real life. Seriously, watch this.

Madden 15 is an extra scummy ripoff on PS3 and 360

EA usually saves its most blatant hack jobs for consoles where it's less likely to draw ire.  FIFA 14 on Vita was a reskin of FIFA 13 on Vita which was a reskin of FIFA Soccer. Before you snark about "aren't all sports games?...

EA spent tons of money on this 'kooky' 'viral' Madden trailer
