Madden


Madden 15 is seeking to put more focus on defense in the latest iteration of the ridiculously popular football game, with updates that should make the entire experience a little more fun overall. Players will be able to choos...


Amongst all the E3 hubbub about games like, Mortal Kombat X, Destiny, and Halo 5, let's not forget that August will bring us our annual Madden. Teasing what will be brought to the show, the Madden 15 E3 trailer implies, to m...


Who on here deserves it more? Maybe Jamaal Charles for being on the Chiefs? Well, that didn't get Steven Jackson any cover appearances for the decade he toiled away on the Rams. And for context, I am a Rams fan advising you t...


Electronic Arts could soon be offering their games directly to Comcast subscribers, according to a report from Reuters. The two companies have been in talks, and after two years of testing it seems the deal is close to an agr...


So, last year was Madden NFL 25, and this year is Madden NFL 15? I can't wait for Madden NFL -5. Integers are fun, kids. Anyway, here's a self-important trailer. Reminder: this is a game. It's a game of a game. Madden 15 is coming to PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and 360 on August 26 in North America, August 29 in Europe. Voting for the next cover player begins May 8.


We approach another manicured, partially tax-exempt-NFL, $9B/year industry football game this Super Bowl Sunday. We'll be lucky to get a sign of life like Richard Sherman's postgame interview two weeks ago. No, it will be a ...


The Super Bowl is this weekend, fittingly attended by teams from both states wherein pot is legal, though housed in New Jersey, where, at the moment, snow does not seem imminent despite recent cold. As Madden 25 tells it, th...


As the resident Destructoid staff North Dakotan, I feel oddly obligated to report whenever there's videogame news that can be tenuously tied to my home state. As such, the University of North Dakota had a recent applicant for...


It's tough to feel the need to upgrade to a "next-gen" version of a game when so many of them are practically identical to the product you already bought. Though some PS4 and Xbox One titles have drastic differences like a va...


Stats run sports. Yes, we have heartwarming stories of moxie and upsets and unexpected onside kicks right after the Super Bowl halftime show and they make for great narratives, but numbers are invaluable at easily quantifying...


Skip to about 1:40 for a nasty hit. Now that we're in the year 2025, it's time for a next gen Madden game. Madden 25 released a couple months ago, but on smelly and dumb old news hardware. Next month, it's coming to fresh an...


EA Sports has dropped a new video hyping the next-gen visuals Madden 25 will be sporting on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year. Leveraging the power of the Ignite Engine, the team has developed what they refer to...


I'll be spending this week playing catch up, but there's no dearth of new releases. Killer is Dead is tempting me, because bloody hell it looks flashy, but I'll probably leave until I'm not drowning in games. Final Fant...


Take my review of last year's Madden 13. Give it a roster update. Associate any players I named who've been swapped around like pogs with whatever their new team is. Axe a missed dangling participle or two. Tighten up the mec...


I bet GameStop is a little happier selling Xbox Ones now that the used game market is back. To show this support, the company is running a somewhat neat promotion. If you are a PowerUp Rewards member and buy select games for ...


In 2011, we reported that Electronic Arts was being sued by Robin Antonick, designer of the original John Madden Football, who was claiming unpaid royalties for derivatives of his work after realizing subsequent early Madden ...


Madden 13 was really the shot in the arm the franchise needed after several years of feeling remarkably stale. The implementation of a physics system in retrospect seems paramount for something striving to be simulation footb...


Electronic Arts' E3 press briefing will provide viewers with a first look at what the company plans on doing with its multi-year Star Wars deal with Disney, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau announced. The new Star Wars titles...


During an investor call today, EA Labels president Frank Gibeau briefly discussed the company's plans for E3 2013. As expected, June is going to be a big month for the new home consoles. "Regarding next generation consoles, w...


EA Sports has confirmed to Nintendo World Report that Madden NFL will be skipping the Wii U this year. EA stated the following: "We will not be releasing a Wii U version of Madden NFL in 2013. However, we have a strong partne...


Barry Sanders has won the vote between new- and old-school NFL players alike, taking the spotlight from Adrian Peterson to rush onto the Madden 25 cover with a 58 percent margin. I'll always remember Sanders as one of most e...


It wasn't much of a surprise when Electronic Arts was recently voted the Worst Company in America by readers of Consumerist for the second year in a row. Though the game publisher's sins are arguably less substantial than tho...


Since all of you have been keeping up to date with all the latest Madden news, you're aware of the fact that the upcoming Madden 14 is now retitled Madden NFL 25, right? Well, since every Madden needs a cover, EA Sports has d...


Straight from the "I told you videogames can be productive!" file comes a unique feel-good story. According to The Phinsider, a Miami Dolphins-centric site, Southern Methodist University star Margus Hunt learned to play footb...


It looks like my bird magic worked, as the Baltimore Ravens overtook the San Francisco 49ers last night in a huge Super Bowl victory, bringing the franchise up to two championship wins. Of course, Madden 13 already knew this...


The next installment of Madden, the series' 25th anniversary release, will hit stores on August 27, Electronic Arts announced. With its first release on the Sega Genesis back in 1989, the Madden series has come quite a long w...


For those beyond the cultural heft of sports, the Super Bowl is this weekend. A lot of people are going to be tweeting about it and, more annoyingly, a lot of people are going to be tweeting in complaint about people tweetin...


Sony is currently offering a 15 month PlayStation Plus subscription for the price of 12. But that's an investment for the forward-thinking man. What have they done for us lately? Well, that 13 for '13 sale was pretty nea...


When one thinks of buying the latest installment of John Madden football, one typically goes the route of either the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 version, instantly shrugging off even the thought of playing a year of pigskin on ...


As much fun as the never ending political bickering has been lately, I'm kind of ready for it to be over for a while. Something tells me though, that it's going to get a whole lot worse before it gets any better. At least we ...


The tree leaves change colors, stores stock pumpkin pies en masse, San Francisco finally starts getting its belated summer, and another Madden game releases; such are the harbingers of fall. It gets harder and harder to remem...


If you read my E3 preview of Madden 13, you know that I’m tenuously excited for it. If you haven’t, well, I’m tenuously excited for it. The reason behind this cautious optimism is that Madden has finally imp...


During EA's Summer Showcase live stream, EA has shown off some new features for the Wii U versions of Madden 13 and Fifa 13, typically focused on the GamePad's touchscreen. In Madden, play calling is done directly on the touc...


Another year, another Madden. We’ve probably reached a point in time where there are Madden fans who have forgotten than John Madden’s goofy mug used to adorn the games. As a big, stupid football fan, I’m al...


Legendary Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis opened the Madden NFL 13 presentation at EA's E3 2012 press conference with a pretty intense speech on what it means to compete, and the brevity of actually playing in the NFL. Madden dev...


Madden fans, prepare yourselves: as revealed at Microsoft's E3 press conference, Madden NFL 13 will be gaining Kinect voice controls that allow you to call plays on the line of scrimmage. Demoed onstage with Hall of Fame quar...


Every year Madden just keeps getting better and better. Remember back in 2010 when they added that one thing? Yeah, dude! That was the best! Well, at least until last year when they tacked on something else and it got ev...


Remember that time we reported that Calvin "Megatron" Johnson was going to be on the cover of Madden 13? Well now EA has something to show for it, as the game's official boxart has been revealed via Facebook. I would have rat...


With summer almost here, I'm sure die-hard football fans are already packing their coolers and mixing their magical sauces in preparation of pre-season football... which starts in late August. But before any real pigskins fly...


EA Sports put the Madden cover to a vote once again this year, and as of last week, the fans had whittled down a bracket of 64 NFL players to just two: Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam "Ace Boogie" Newton (the No. 1 seed) an...
