The fans have spoken, and Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis is the cover athlete for the upcoming Madden NFL 12. Hillis beat out former Madden NFL 2004 cover star Michael Vick in an online head-to-head to logged 12.7 million votes between March 21 and April 27.

“Our fans have responded in record-setting fashion to honor Peyton Hillis, and we’re extremely pleased to welcome him into an exclusive fraternity of NFL players to appear on the cover of the Madden NFL franchise,” said EA SPorts Senior Product Manager Anthony Stevenson.

No mention on the over-under on when Hillis pulls a hamstring or gets attacked by a scorpion on the 20-yard line as part of the "Madden Curse." Madden NFL 12 is out August 30; we'll have more details on the game in the coming weeks.

Pucks and players are more chaotic in NHL 15

About a month ago, I explained how EA Sports' big focus for NHL 15 was physics. In the event that you didn't believe me (or hate reading), this video adequately sums up the studio's intentions. Watch it to learn how pucks bounce or to see Matt Duchene crash the net like a total badass.more

Who is yelling in this Madden trailer and why, why, why

I wanted to fit a "Red Warrior is about to die" joke in this trailer for Madden's new Gauntlet mode. I got as far as "Redskins is about to die" before I started watching this video and was greeted with an over eager, discordant voice over. Bosssssss levelsssssssssssss. Who thought this was a good idea?more
