Last year, we finally saw the long-running and revered Madden franchise reclaim much of its former glory, and this year, we're all expecting the best football simulator yet.
What you're looking at here is the first official screenshot for Madden 10 , as revealed by EA boss Peter Moore over at his blog . Moore is already calling this newest installment in the series "the most detailed and comprehensive edition in the history of the franchise," and he also says you should be able to spot some of the detail upgrades in this screenshot. Added Moore:
"We're hitting the real sweet spot of development for this generation of consoles as the team is really hitting its stride in squeezing every ounce of power and capability from the hardware. In fact, the Madden team is taking such dramatic strides this year that we're in the position to go deep on features and details earlier than we've ever done before."
We should be seeing more announcements later in the week – figures that it would correspond with the GDC – but for now, we'll just marvel at this sweet picture here. Football fans everywhere shouldn't be too upset with the fact that EA has basically cornered the market by snapping up all the NFL rights…why should we complain if something like Madden 10 turns out to be unbelievably awesome? Stay tuned for more details.
By the way, is anyone else concerned that all these sports titles are gonna have misleading names in the new decade…? "Madden 10" sounds like its the tenth Madden, doesn't it? When it was Madden 97 and Madden 04, nobody would mistake that for something else, but now…
