EA have announced that they are working on a Nintendo Revolution version of their popular American-football series Madden. The game features an interesting sounding "gesture" system to control the play.
The Revolution version of Madden is being treated as an entirely separate game to the other consoless version by the EA team. While I'm definitely no expert on American Football, I'm looking forward to seeing how the gesture system will be integrated into the game.
EA's John Schappert says that Madden isn't the only game we'll be seeing from the company either, "I can tell you that we're working on titles other than just Madden right now and we're not unveiling those just yet. I think you'll see continued support for Revolution and you'll see EA continue to bring innovative titles that maximize the power of the machine".
"At first we had the hike mechanism where you actually pulled the controller back, so if you think about gesturing your hand forward and pulling it back as if you're hiking the ball, which kind of looks more like a hike, was very hard to do and wasn't something that was comfortable for people," he said. "So we actually moved it to snapping the ball up, as if you're receiving the ball."
The game will be playable at E3, NRF.com will keep you informed!

Definitely, Wii has become as the most popular and most sought after gaming console nowadays. It is different from the usual gaming equipment that we used to know of. Many factors were given as to the reason for resurgence of this most innovative games machine over a very short period of time. One is the cost which makes it even more affordable to those who are tight on budget. And the other are the games that went along with the product that requires a different method of playing them. It's a fun gaming machine and is the reason why it is very attractive to gamers and non-gamers of all ages.
