Madden NFL 25 is one of the most anticipated sports video games of the year due to the hype of 2013 being the 25thyear that the Madden game has been widely available to everyone. Based on the news and information that has trickled out from EA Sports thus far, we have compiled a list of early pros and cons for Madden NFL 25 on both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.


1. The PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One come out this year. This is very exciting news for those of us planning on picking up a next generation console, but it is equally exciting for those planning on getting Madden 25 on the XBOX 360 or the PlayStation 3. If history is any indicator, Madden football games are at their peak (at least in terms of core gameplay) the year that new consoles come out. The PS4 and Xbox One versions will surely, "WOW" you with graphics but the version for the current generation consoles will be loaded with features and finely tuned gameplay.

2. Expanding on the gameplay a little bit, the Infinity Engine 2.0 will be included into this year's game. The first shot at the Infinity Engine, which is just Electronic Arts' attempt at including the laws of physics in a video game, showed huge potential in last year's game but wasn't all that polished. A whole year has passed since then for EA Sports to build on it and they absolutely will.

3. Getting your skills up is easier than ever. If you've struggled in the past with Madden games, it isn't time to give up. There are all sorts of websites available to help you improve.
