today that Madden NFL 09
, the 20th Anniversary of its exclusive NFL license-holding franchise
, will touch down in stores August 12. The company states there'll also be a 20th Anniversary Collector's Edition
of the game featuring Madden NFL 09
and NFL Head Coach 09
, along with "an extensive library of exclusive bonus video content" for $90.
So, let's make a Hail Mary pass and wish the best for Madden '09
. Initial data on last year's Madden sales
showed consumers weren't that into the series anymore. Maybe this'll be the year the franchise gets a major update bringing gamers in who don't just buy the series like sheep year after year ... stop laughing! One can dream, can't they?
