Madden NFL 25 demo available today on Xbox 360 and PS3
Football fans eager to see the changes made in this year's installment of Madden can now do so on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 with the release of the Madden NFL 25 demo. The demo is currently available for Xbox LIVE Gold members on Xbox 360, with it becoming available to Silver members next week; meanwhile, any PS3 owner with access to PlayStation Network can download it today.
The demo includes two playable features: the Skills Trainer and two playable exhibition matchups. The Skills Trainer allows you to get accustomed to the new changes in this year's Madden, including the 30 new ball-carrier movies and the improved Infinity Engine 2 and Force Impact system. The Skills Trainer also serves as a nice tutorial to refine your passing, running, and defensive techniques prior to the launch.
Those looking to jump right into a game can do so as either the Seattle Seahawks or the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, or replay last year's Super Bowl matchup as the San Francisco 49ers or the Baltimore Ravens. All games are set to five-minute quarters with default uniforms and your choice of difficulty.
Unfortunately, the Xbox 360 and PS3 version won't give you that true next-gen taste as the Ignite Engine is for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but for those of you not purchasing a next-gen system, who still may be on the fence about Madden this year (as early pre-order numbers seem to indicate), hopefully the demo proves itself a worthy improvement over last year's title.
