That’s right…EA and ESPN are taking Madden to new heights…well new $20 heights that is. 

Beginning August 4 at 8 p.m. ET., ESPN and ESPN.com will offer an exclusive pay-per-view event with Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) – Inside Madden NFL 07 – produced by ESPN Original Entertainment (EOE) and available to gamers through affiliates on television and also online.

In this special, available 18 days before the release of Madden NFL 07 from EA SPORTS™ on August 22, fans will get an early look inside one of this year’s most anticipated video game releases.  EA game designers and some of the best Madden players will lead gamers on a guided tour through new changes and advances in all aspects of the game.  Included in the special are the exclusive release of player ratings and tips from top Madden gamers and behind-the-scenes details about the making of the next generation of Madden NFL games.

#edit – one note that many have inquired about as it pertains to Madden NFL 2007.  It will not include co-op or same team play.  The feature was left off both Madden 2007 and NCAA 2007.

  1. Xbox and PS2 have the same graphics?

    That’s classic, about as funny as you “IMing” Cliffy B during Gears of War’s final weeks in development.

    I don’t have much confidence in Gears of War if Cliffy is spending crunch time talking to anti-Xbox 360 trolls

  2. Sirharper, you have serious issues that need professional help if you’re believing all the sh*t you’re spewing. And no, I’m not UNSCleric, but I am like him, sane.

  3. Whatever dude. If I slapped an Xbox logo on a Etch-a-Sketch you’d think it had better graphics too. Thats just how you roll.

    As for Cliffy, he’s been on my friends list since last year. I have his AIM and Yahoo names. I emailed him yesterday and he replied a hour later. What can I say, you don’t know shit.

    How about that BluRay now, you man enough to pick up the debate armed only with fanboy facts?

  4. Twisted…funny how you never appear until UNSCleric starts to get owned. What exactly are you here to contribute? You have not once debated any fact.

  5. We should start a campaign to stop everyone from purchasing this. Since this type of activity happens because EA knows people will fork out the cash the only way to send a real message is for everyone to boycott the event. I understand that people need to make a buck but we need to let them know that they should invest their time in a better game and then the game will sell itself and bring them the returns they desire. These silly gimicks are only necessary when the actual product isn’t as good as it should be.

  6. well my thing is that i’ve NEVER been into Madden. but considering 2K isn’t making a game now or can’t…i’m forced to buy it because i like playing football on video games…and the only way to do that with current stuff is with Madden. i wasn’t too put off with the 360′s version last year..in fact, it’s the only Madden game i can sit down and enjoy really…so i’m at least learning to like it :)

    but this pay per view thing can go where the sun don’t shine.
