Biggest waste of $20 bucks, the bootleg?

Update 2:

Niero: As you know, EA had the nuts to charge $20 on payperview for a video game demonstration of Madden 2007. Apparently a “leaked version” of it just became available on the web but you can’t hear the audio and its otherwise a very frustrating experience, but you can see some of the game anyway. Now. We all you use YouTube on a regular basis and rarely do I ever come across footage this poor, even with guys recording DS games as they hold the camera with their mouths. After what Agency.com did, I wouldn’t be surprised if the shoddiness of the film is part of a lame viral teaser conspiracy. Other than it appearing on a suspiciously brand new YouTube account, I can’t back that up any further. Here’s whats probably more true: I just goes to show that morons who can’t even hold a camera at a non-moving object were the kind of people who paid to watch this. Take a look before THE MAN yanks all of it’s 8 parts off the web. The original story follows:Madden07mainpicHey Madden addicts! I have a special once in a life time offer for you! Can’t wait to get your hands on Madden ’07?!?!? Well beginning on August 4th, you can watch an hour long pay-per-view special which will consist of a guided tour of all the new features this season!
