Getting ready for football, a new Madden is on the way

Techstination feature for Friday, August 19, 2011

Getting ready for football, a new Madden is on the way.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Madden NFL  12 arrives this month and EA’s popular video game franchise has added more new features.   Line producer Ryan Ferwerda….

“You’re going to see all new broadcast presentation, literally the game recreated just like you see it on TV.  All new collision engine in game, which is a huge win.  Basically contact doesn’t  start until you actually touch which removes a lot of the suction which a lot of our gamers have complained about. 
Also, a new big feature which we just announced…online communities.”

Millions play…and football great Herschel Walker thinks it actually helps them gain a better understanding of the game…

“You know one thing that we’ve gotten away from a lot is fundamentals and in the Madden game you get back to the fundamentals and catching the ball, the proper way of catching and different things.  And that is amazing how the game is so much advanced today where it looks just like it’s live.”

You’ll find Madden NFL 12 on all of the major game consoles.   You can find us with archives, interviews and more at  I’m Fred Fishkin.
