EA will Charge us for Watching an Xbox 360 Trailer!
Posted by XanTium | July 26 09:56 EST

 
From xbox360fanboy.com:


Hey guess what? If you're an idiot that can't stand to wait for even a shred of Madden 07, you can grab a pay-per-view preview of the game starting August 4th. That's right, a behind the scenes marketing video -- the kind that most companies freely distribute on the Internet -- will be available on your TV for a mere 20 dollars American. EA and ESPN should be reviled for this, and rightfully so. The sad thing is that this will make money for EA. There are people stupid enough to pay EA to advertise a product they were already planning on buying.

Who cares about Madden anyway?

EA may as well make just one Madden and then add a download once a year that updates the stats.

But I guess as long as there are people dumb enough to buy it then they may as well take money from them for it.

I don't understand why people keep buying the same game over and over again.

Ok end my rant now.

The game is not even worth downloading from the internet and far from worthy to even put on a Dl disc!!!

Give me NHL 07 instead!!!!!!!!!!!!

B/C for the most part graphics get better, gameplay improves, new user modes, better realism, etc.

This is self-explanatory why people buy a new sports game every year; Its an updated version of the previous.

Its a sports game; There is only so much you can change about a game that has set rules and guidelines to follow.

Only EA would try to get away with this shit, and only EA fans would be stupid enough to buy it.
