Madden 08 Wii details

maddenwiiA few new details have emerged about the Wii version of EA’s newest addition to the mega-franchise that is Madden football. Madden 08 on the Wii will include the following features:

  • Real-time ESPN ticker updates
  • Online tournaments
  • Worldwide quickplay multiplayer matches
  • Promised roster updates not just for the 2008 season, but 2009 as well
  • Mini-game party mode, with 22 mini-games
  • Miis are used in minigames

That sure is a lot of online stuff for the Wii, which has thus far shied away from actually using the internet in games. Also, Miis are going to be of at least some use, which is nice to see. But the biggest piece of info, to me at least, is the promise of two years-worth of roster updates.

Since when does EA give gamers a reason NOT to buy their yearly incremental update of sports titles?

I feel like I’m taking crazy pills.
