The lights are on
This year's Madden has two big hurdles to overcome: Take advantage of the new systems, as well as take care of nagging legacy problems. Our first look at Madden NFL 15 on the new consoles shows that developer EA Tiburon has been very busy.
So far, EA Tiburon has highlighted a lot of changes on the defensive side of the ball, from reworking how linemen rush the passer to redoing defensive schemes. If these additions are tuned correctly, the title's new balance of power could make for some exciting chess matches between offenses and defenses. Here is what we know so far:
This isn't all the new features Madden NFL 15 has; through the summer EA will continue to share new details about Madden 15's gameplay and modes.
Madden NFL 15 comes out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on August 26. To what extent the last-gen versions of the game embrace all of the features listed above is unknown at this time.

I actually look forward to this.
1st thing= its going to be exactly the same as last year xD
Making defensive improvement? Heck yes. Hopefully the change to the defensive line will make superstar defensive lineman like J.J. Watt feel like superstars.
I like the coverage improvements as well. I can imagine getting a heck of a lot of interceptions with Seattle in Madden 15.
You know for the longest time the madden football game has fell off Hopefully with this new entry and new gameplay additions madden will finally make a comeback.
I'm actually looking forward to this Madden albeit very cautiously. Need a big-time demo before I buy!
I really want this to be good, I just feel it will be just like last years title. We'll Maybe EA will deliver
This sounds excellent but game developers don't really live up to their promises that much any more.
Will be improved but I feel it will still be a year or two off of perfection, we shall see how good franchise mode can be too!
