Well that didn’t take long. Less than 24 hours after Favre’s decision to head to the Big Apple went final, EA has taken it upon themselves to reassure everyone that a roster update will be available on launch day, as it is every year, but also that there will be a brand new cover available shortly to give your copy of Madden a distinctly 2008 a feel.
The new cover will presumably be simliar to the current one, with just a little more Jets and a little less Packers. It’s a shame, it really is, because of all the Madden titles I think I like the current one the best of all. And that’s totally not because I’ve been a Packer fan since birth, surely that can’t be it. However, I certainly respect EA’s lust for factual accuracy. After all, if it’s in the game… it’s in the game.
