Oops, I did it again. Over the weekend I put Madden 10 on eBay, and pre-ordered Madden 11 to take advantage of a $20 off/credit promotion.
Order Madden NFL 11 for the Wii, PS3, or Xbox 360 and get $20 off a future video game purchase. The promotion code will be applied directly to your Amazon.com account up to two (2) business days after your product ships. This offer will be extended to all existing pre-orders. Amazon reserves the right to change or terminate this promotion at any time. Offer valid for one purchase per customer.
Couple the credit with free release day delivery (for Tuesday, August 10, 2010) shipping, and Madden 11 was just too attractive to pass up.
As if I never seriously considered Madden 11 not being a day one purchase. There was a brief (must have been fleeting too) moment earlier this year during my Madden Ultimate Team foray, where I considered that maybe I would just stick with Madden 10 for two years running. Crazier things have happened; for the first time in the history of the series I did not pick up the newest NCAA Football release.
So I am football less for the next 10-11 weeks. Maybe it is time to go retro with Tecmo Bowl Throwback.
