Madden NFL '09 Box Out Of Date Already

Madden NFL '09 I know that they say the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, but after reading about the calamity stirred up in the sports world today regarding Brett Farve, I'm starting to see the truth behind the aphorism.  Farve is the cover athlete on the Madden NFL '09 football game (which is due out next week), and up until this morning he was accurately depicted on the cover in his old Green Bay Packers uniform.  Now that Favre is bound to the New York Jets, the Madden cover is suddenly out of date before it even reaches stores.  What can be done to correct this act of maluniformage?  MTV digs deep into the panic that must be happening over at Madden publisher Electronic Arts today.

Here are the details we got from EA, in the words of a company spokesperson:

  • Madden NFL 09 will hit stores on Aug 12 with Brett Favre on the cover in his Green Bay Packers uniform.
  • We do not plan to re-issue packaging, but WILL offer a free downloadable cover in the coming days on featuring Brett Favre in a Jets uniform. Fans can print this new cover out and insert it into the case of Madden NFL 09.

You know, I think that if this problem is your largest issue right now, then maybe you need more to do with your days.
