Madden 10 Cover Revealed

Madden 10

Apparently, the folks at EA Sports don’t want either the Pittsburgh Steelers nor the Arizona Cardinals to revisit the Super Bowl next February. Why else would Larry Fitzgerald and Troy Polamalu be on the cover of Madden 10? The most popular — and perhaps most redundant (What, roster and gameplay patch updates as downloadable content is out of the question?) — sports console game maybe ever has uncovered their latest installment. This time, however, there are two players on the cover; which could be an effort to spread the dreaded Madden curse around — or to nullify it.

Either way, I don’t doubt some Steelers fans, as well as Cardinals fans, just had a slight sinking feeling. And after looking at the Snopes page for the Madden curse, documenting each and every one, it’s easy to see why. Perhaps the dual-player cover will have a different effect, but I wouldn’t count on it.

The game itself comes out on August 14, which will undoubtedly be a huge “I’m staying home and playing Madden all day” day.

Darren McFadden First For EA Sports

EA Sports is already prepping for the release their 2009 NCAA Football title and to celebrate, they’ve unveiled the game’s initial cover athlete; everybody’s favorite Hog, Darren McFadden. The MVP of the 2008 NFL Draft Combine will be the first of four athletes selected to be on the cover of EA’s college football offering.

The McFadden cover will be for the Xbox 360, while the remaining three platforms—the Playstation 2, 3 and the PSP—scheduled to receive the game will be getting a different player. The PS3 cover athlete will be revealed on April 24 while the PS2 and PSP covers will be announced in May.
