In time for calcio (football) madness, PES 2015 gets a trailer

Update: Welp, that video was pulled due to licensing issues. I'll take this moment to root very hard for Belgium to knock out the American team.  I'm a bit checked out after Italy's rare, unceremonious early exit, but we...

Madden 15 cover wants you to stop in your tracks, or something

Seattle Seahawks star cornerback Richard Sherman won the vote to be on the box art of Madden 15. What exactly he's doing on the cover, well, that's anybody's guess. Does he want a high-five? (If so, gotta go higher, Richard.)...

There's no chance Devolver's giving out 1,000 Broforce copies

Devolver Digital is planning on giving away 1,000 copies of Broforce, "If 'Merica wins the World Cup," which is to say that Devolver Digital has absolutely no plans on giving away 1,000 copies of Broforce.  Because America sucks.

EA Sports has one big focus for Madden, FIFA, and NHL this year photo
EA Sports has one big focus for Madden, FIFA, and NHL this year
by Brett Makedonski

EA Sports is in a good position with its athletic franchises. The demand for annual iterations in each series is high enough to warrant frequent releases, but sports don't really change. This allows the developers to focus on nothing but improvements and making the games as realistic as possible -- something that any fan of sports games desperately wants.

And, realism is exactly what EA Sports strives for. With regard to its Madden, FIFA, and NHL brands, each is seeing changes this year that bring it ever closer to pure simulation. After all, if it's in the game, it's in the game.

In its E3 press conference today, Electronic Arts released a new trailer for its upcoming hockey game, NHL 15. During the presentation, EA boasted that it would calculate "physics for all twelve players and the puck." The trailer above shows off those physics, with some bone-crunching hits and pretty fantastic shots on goal. NHL 15 is set to release on September 9, 2014.

EA unveils first NBA Live 15 screen
