Another New Madden Football

Techstination feature for Tuesday, May 5, 2009

Another new Madden NFL game arrives this summer. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology Boot Camp, a report on gadgets and gear. John Madden may have announced his retirement from the football broadcast booth, but there's no end in sight to the long running Madden NFL video game franchise from Electronic Arts. Madden NFL 10 arrives this summer and senior producer Phil Frazier says the goal was to add more realism than ever...

"At the core of it all is we're making just a really great football game. Our biggest technology this year is what we're calling Pro Tack. And the key to this technology is allowing us to do things you've never seen in a Madden game before and quite frankly any sports game. We're allowed to do nine man gang tackles now. So before you could only one offensive guy and two defensive players. Now you can actually have a total of nine players...any mixture of offense and defensive players bring a guy down or try to push the pile forward. "

Madden NFL 10 will be available for the Xbox360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo's Wii. You can find us at I'm Fred Fishkin.
