The lockout is over and everyone is ready for some football. Good timing, too, as this year's Madden entry is right around the corner.
Well, the game won't be out until August 30 but you can sample the demo for Madden NFL 12 on August 9. As revealed at the official Madden blog , the playable sample will be available on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; it lets you play one of last year's most important match-ups. It's the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers at Soldier Field; these two played for the NFC Championship during the 2010/2011 season. The game will be set to 5-minute quarters, and you can see what improvements EA Sports has on tap for this year's effort. Remember, even though the rosters will be off due to the lockout, EA has a launch-day update planned to keep everything accurate.
We still don't know how Peyton Hillis landed on the cover but apparently, he's a big-time fan favorite.
