Madden NFL 12 demo hits August 9th

The Green Bay Packers might have defeated the Chicago Bears in real life, but we’re not here to pass judgement on the teams’ performances, we’re here to manipulate them. And, with EA Sports announcing a Madden NFL 12 demo coming to Xbox Live and PlayStation Network in a mere week and a half, we’re not far from being able to do that.

The demo will pit the Packers against the Bears in an interactive 20-minute, four-quarter replay of what happened that fateful day. Bear in mind though that due to the recent NFL lockout, the rosters of both teams will be out of date. That said, EA Sports confirmed a launch-day patch will be in place to fix that.

Madden NFL 12 is set for late-August release on most consoles imaginable.
