Madden NFL 12 Hits The Gridiron On August 30

The real season might be in jeopardy but the virtual one will once again kick off in August.

Even though it's a few weeks later than normal, EA has made good on its promise and confirmed Madden NFL 12 for August 30. Publishing boss Peter Moore announced the date at an event in San Francisco, and clarified - as if we needed it - that the game would be headed to all major platforms (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PS2, PSP). Prior to this, EA had stated that the NFL dispute between the league and players' association wouldn't have a negative effect on this year's Madden installment. Well, that was very close to correct; we're only a couple weeks behind. Also, remember that EA is being more respectful of the seriousness of a concussion: if a player suffers that specific injury in this year's entry, he'll be immediately sidelined. Reality is a bi***, huh?

If you can't watch football this season, you'll still be able to immerse yourself in a new season with your favorite team.

EA still making it for the PS2 just goes to show How much they have improved it. If a console over 10 years old plays the newest installment.
I love football and really hope EA sports doesn't keep the NFL license again. A game really needs competition to improve. Madden is a fine example of tht. They were doing great up until Madden 05 where they were going up against ESPN NFL 2K and Blitz and what not. This later release date better mean a lot of improvements

You're assuming that the PS2 version is somehow the same as the PS3 version. It's not, not really. The PS3/360 game uses a completely different codebase to the PS2/Wii version.

Apparently not many like sports on this site. The comments for sports games are always low. I love madden and football so I'd hate to see the season not start at all or shorten.

The only thing sports-related I care about right now is my Vikings getting a stadium during this ridiculous budget-cutting madness that punishes the poor.

I'd be more worried about a quarterback! Actually no your right, They need a new stadium. Hopefully they get something cus I'd hate to see em leave Minnesota. But still AP won't be happy much longer so hopefully they get smart and make a trade for kolb instead of hoping for a good pick in this years worthless draft for QB's!

yeah we need a qb, I don't like our guy Jackson. More than anything I don't wanna see the L.A. Vikings though.

If they can finally get a PS3 version of Madden with the same level of sophistication in the franchise mode as the PS2 version, I might get this, otherwise it will be another body swerve for the franchise.

Once the online franchise mode was introduce in madden 10, that's all I played.

Wish it was as good as the online dynasty mode in NCAA though!

Wanna do something doubly pointless? Buy it for PS2 and play it on your B/C PS3.

I did that in 2008 because the PS3 version was so poor.

To be honest, Madden has sucked since it's first release on the PS3 and that trend continues !

I've been playing since the 16-bit SNES and Genesis days and I can honestly say I've never been as disappointed with Madden as I have the past few years !

I stopped buying it after 2009 !

Fantastic! Can't wait to get it!
Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
