Madden 12 Hall of Fame Edition
Even though we may not have an NFL Season this year (I sure hope we do) EA is wasting no time in putting together one of the best football experiences to date. The cover athlete was voted on by fans on ESPN.com and Peyton Hillis won the votes. However, EA is putting together a $89.99 Hall of Fame Edition which features Marshall Faulk on the cover who was inducted into the Pro Bowl Hall of Fame in 2011! Here is what the editions will features:
* True to the Game – The Madden NFL Hall of Fame Edition contains a complete copy of Madden NFL 12.
* Limited Edition – Only 125,000 Hall of Fame Editions were made, making it a must have for any football fan.
* Autographed Marshall Faulk Card – Madden NFL and Panini have teamed up to create the Ultimate Madden NFL trading card featuring 2011 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, Marshall Faulk. Each copy of the Hall of Fame Edition will include one of four exclusive Marshall Faulk trading cards, featuring a personally hand-signed autograph from Marshall himself. One solid, 18k gold autographed card has been randomly inserted into one Xbox 360 and one PlayStation 3 copy of the Hall of Fame Edition. The lucky recipients of these two cards will have one of the most valuable cards in Panini history.
* Madden Ultimate Team – The perfect combination of Madden NFL Football, fantasy football, and trading cards comes to life in Madden NFL Ultimate Team. The Hall of Fame Edition provides a Madden Ultimate Team experience like never before with the most prestigious Platinum Pack yet, featuring a combination of 13 NFL Hall of Famers and former Madden NFL cover athletes such as Marshall Faulk, Barry Sanders, Jerry Rice, Rod Woodson, Eddie George, Michael Vick, Donovan McNabb, Ray Lewis, Shaun Alexander, Vince Young, Larry Fitzgerald, Troy Polamalu and Drew Brees. All cards feature ratings from each player’s most productive season in the NFL and are fully renewable with contract extensions, making them among the most sought after cards in Ultimate Team history.
If you are a die hard football fan, you want to seriously consider picking up the rare Collector’s Edition. Madden 12 is due out on August 30, 2011
