If Wolfenstein Beats Madden, It’s Free

Filed under: Games,News — grossga @ 13:27

Every year around August EA releases its latest and greatest version of the Madden franchise, and every year it seems to outsell everything else ($133.5 million for the month of August 2008).

On Aug. 11th, Raven Software’s Manveer Heir has posted the following message on Twitter trying to take down the champion:

“Here’s the deal folks: if Wolfenstein outsells Madden 10 in August I will personally pay for your copy (keep your receipt) – SPREAD THE WORD”

Can a revised classic from my childhood really overthrow Madden?  If you think it can and have an extra $60 to risk,  the rules are as follows:

“Any platform, using NPD numbers, need a copy of your receipt, you must follow (Manveer Heir) on Twitter”

  1. To bad they didn’t put they game out for Mac too. I bet they could have done it but alas now they are doomed to failure.

  2. I doubt very seriously that is going to happen! I recently wrote a post on the NFL Madden Series and have been amazed at all the bad blood out there. If you don’t like the monopoly they have, you will probably be amused by the spoof game in the post. http://giftqb.wordpress.com/2009/08/12/john-madden/ Enjoy!
