Madden is just about the biggest thing in gaming in the US (at least in terms of sales). So EA would want to get a demo for the game into the hands of everyone and anyone, right? WRONG.

Only those preordering Madden at GameStop will get a demo for the game. A demo for a game they've already committed to purchase.

Words fail me. Please, EA. Stop. Please.

UPDATE - It's OK! Don't blame EA! Blame GameStop, for issuing a press release that touted the demo as an exclusive, when it's not.

EA have let us know that there will be two demos made available. One for GameStop preorder customers, which features the Cards vs the Steelers (with 5-minute quarters), and a second demo for everyone, which will feature the Giants vs the Cowboys (with 2-minute quarters).
