Xbox 360 releases for the week of August 21st

screen shot

I can't think of a better way to kick-off football season than with a copy of Madden NFL 07. Especially since Madden is the only option if you want a new release this week. We're anxious to see how this has improved over last year's rush job.

Xbox 360 Releases

  • Madden NFL 07 (Hall of Fame Edition also available)

As always, availability is subject to manufacturer delivery.

1. Here's one improvement over Madden 2006:


Whether one considers it an improvement depends on which side of the value chain you happen to, I guess.

2. Hate to say this to you, but that's why they have Policy Agreements. You clicked yes, you joined. If you don't like the policy, you have the right not to join.

I am not saying it's a good policy, but this is what contracts are all about.

3. What people don't realise is that EA has ALWAYS done that for initally setting up Xbox Live accounts for their servers so you don't have to enter information and sign up to their services and whatnot. It doesn't do it again once the Live account is regestered with their sever. This version of Madden is no different than any other EA game when it comes to EA's online servers.

Also, it asks you about sharing information when you sign up to Xbox Live and you can turn off sharing info in Xbox Live account management.

Also, the information EA is getting to use their servers is no different than the info that you give to a website to sign up, their of course not passing around vital information. So I don't see what the big deal is.

Anyway, I won't be picking up Madden 07 for one major reason, I never have and never will care about sports...

4. Circuit city has the lowest price i have seen advertised for this game at $47.99. Im gonna go to Best Buy and price match it tho because circuit city will probably be sold out.

5. best buy only price matches CC after they call to confirm CC has it in stock, at least in my experiences. fyi

6. I went into my local video store, a mom and pop place, and they had Madden 07 on the shelf. I asked if they were renting it, and they asked why? My heart skipped as I thought of a way to not tell them they were breaking the street date. "Just wondering if it was out is all." They rented me the game and I just finished playing my second match.
Gamer tag is MrGoddard in case anyone says I am just looking for attention.

7. As a 360 fanboy i wish the fanboy site would add more news stories to their site, related to the 360, unlike the 'zunespotting' post; which could have been related to the 360 if it was written that way (how it will connect to the 360 ect.)

There are other stories out there also...



Man i hate geek rants, i apologies lol but seriously ask for a raise (Time Warner can afford it) so you can quite your day jobs for the upcoming xmas gaming news season.

8. I wouldn't complain about the privacy deal.. They already suckered you into spending $50+ on basically the same game you bought last time and the time before that. It's the same game with an updated roster, slightly tweaked gameplay and maybe a graphical update.. If I were going to bitch about anything, I'd bitch about that. Sure they could offer a premium download that could update your roster, and tweak the gameplay and whatnot and charge you $15 for it, but they know they can get $50+ out of all the sheep out there willing to do so.

9. Didn't they confirm Texas Hold 'em for this week as well??

10. I hope this is better than the piece of crap Game Day College Football I bought. God I miss 2K's football. Every time I go on line the EA server sucks and the game is at snails pace.

11. Yeah, Isn't "Texas Hold 'Em" being released this week also? I've been practicing my poker strategy all weekend in anticipation. I could give half a crap about another damn Madden.

12. just got back from wal mart...brought them my circuit city ad ($47.99), they had to ask the manager but the manager said they had to match it. i guess they gotta put in some code though since its over 10 dollars difference...just puttin it out there...good luck

13. If you show your CC ad at Best buy, they will give you a $15 giftcard and 2 free coke products instead of price matching it if you want. I took that option as it was a better deal. Hope this helps some people.
