EA Sports Lead producer Phil Frazier dropped some pretty unfortunate news regarding the public demo for Madden 10.
Gamers who preorder through GameStop will get access to an exclusive demo, which releases July 23rd. This demo includes 5 minute quarters, allowing for an ample playthrough time of 20 minutes.
Players who didn’t preorder through the nationwide chain would get access to the public demo, come July 30th. Unfortunately, Frazier recently announced that this public demo would only have 1 minute quarters. Yup, that’s right, a whopping four minutes of gameplay. Even the Heavenly Sword demo did better than that.
Why they thought having a gimped public demo was a good idea is beyond us. Madden 2010 is hitting stores shelves August 14th.
