This is how Microsoft wants you to consume the National Football League in the near future. With Hololens goggles, and pinching, and holographic Russell Wilsons (Russell Wilsi?).
It takes some fiddling, but a dedicated fan has made sure that if you want to use the current roster of NFL players in a GameCube sports game released in 2002, you can.
On Christmas Day, Sony Pictures Entertainment will release Concussion, a film that will almost certainly be very bad. As we’ve already noted, the film—starring Will Smith as CTE researcher Dr. Bennet Omalu—suffers from significant issues, both in theory and practice. (When the film studio’s lawyers call for the film…
Everyone needs to shut up about the reversed pass interference call from last week's playoff game between the Cowboys and Lions, because the real travesty of the day occurred before the game even started.
A federal appeals court ruled a lawsuit by ex-NFL players against Electronic Arts can move forward, the AP reports. The lawsuit seeks compensation over Madden NFL featuring ex-players on "historical" teams in everything but name. EA lost a similar lawsuit brought by ex-NCAA players. The company settled for $40 million.
In May of last year, when Microsoft first unveiled the Xbox One, they made grand, lofty promises. Here was the console that would change the way we watch TV, revolutionizing all things NFL and enhancing our football Sundays forever and ever.
For some reason, EA thought it would be a good idea to let the internet make GIFs using Madden player models. They made a site for it and everything, underwritten by the NFL, NFLPA, and Google. We spent 15 minutes trying to make them regret it. Here's what we came up with, but we're sure you criminals can do better.
The next toys coming to McDonald's Happy Meals are generic NFL player figurines to promote Madden 15. Yes, there's an alternative for non-sports fans:
Over at SI's Extra Mustard, Jon Robinson has a wonderful look at eight features the NFL forced EA Sports to remove from its Madden series of video games. They are, roughly, what you'd expect: a whole lot of things related to player safety, including helmets popping off, coaches being run over on the sidelines, and…
If the Super Bowl was kicking off on the Death Star and not in New York, it'd be the Tauntauns versus the Wattos today. That's according to this set of helmets reimagining the NFL inside the Star Wars canon. Every choice is outstanding (St. Louis Twi'leks, for sure) but the most apt has to be the Washington Gungans.
The week before the Super Bowl in NY/NJ, some NFL players spend their time on the field. Others like to party it up in New York's lavish nightclubs and restaurants. But Nate Irving? Nate Irving likes to play Pokémon.
EA Sports and the NFL "still have a number of years left on our agreements" to exclusively develop and publish video games, EA CEO Andrew Wilson told investors. "We have a number of games in development with the NFL" license, he added. Reports had suggested EA's license to make NFL games would expire this year.
American football isn't just popular in America. It's also an attraction in Austria, whose PULS 4 network concocted this Game of Thrones-style introduction for the two conference championships the NFL plays today. It beats Cleatus, that doofus Fox Sports robot, by a mile, er, several kilometers.
Seven years ago, Hunter Hillenmeyer was signing autographs in a Jewel-Osco supermarket up in Fox Lake, Ill., the kind of ham-and-egg gig that any Chicago Bear could expect at some point in his career if he was any good. It wasn't anyone's idea of stressful work. Smile, pretend to be famous, collect your couple-three…
Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant just did something pretty awesome.
Yesterday we showed you what you can entertain yourself with in between play sessions on the PS4. Now, it's the Xbox One's turn.
Looks like Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin Jr. got himself a steal. Teammate and All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman knows the score.
Immensely popular and ridiculously lucrative, the Madden NFL series of video games is an entertainment behemoth. It is also forever and inextricably tied to its source material: the real, live version of the sport it simulates. It is the Christopher Reeve of video games, never really discussed on its own merits, but…
It happened last week, and it's happening again today: the NFL Sunday Ticket, which is supposed to let you watch any NFL game on your computer or mobile device, is failing for some customers across the country. What a mess.
