I'm sure Madden [censored you naughty boy] are going to tell their friends to stop watching ESPN just so they don't get the game.

Yep, I'm watching the NFL Yearbooks on ESPN and saw the commercial. It shows first person mode and then shows the release. Very nice to see Sega start their advertising early!

I just saw it too... Seemed kind of lame. Hopefully they'll improve greatly in the coming months.

Re: ESPN comercial just showed on espn

In advertising, especially with the product far from release, sometimes the best approach is the "less is more" approach. As they get closer, they'll do more, of course.

If I were them, I'd stick with the curiousity approach, and have little clips of first-person mode going on...little blips of some of the more critical action plays (maybe a 4th and goal slant pattern, or a 4th-and-one over-the-top play).

Another way to get someone's eye is to run one of those Halo-esque ads...with the climatic music in the background, slow things down a little...something that comes off as curious AND classy like that will pique some interest.

Just my $.02...but if ESPN wants to do something to get their game some more press, they'd take a different approach to promoting the game. The ESPN name has generally been bad business for games in the past anyway (ie bad gameplay, low sales; I know Sega wasn't involved them, but people are A) stupid and don't put two and two together, and B) don't forget)...so will that connotation hurt?

Definitely a lot to think about. The ad approach they take will definitely be interesting to follow.

Just caught it last night. The footage was pretty fast. It shwoed a FPM clip. Dam that was a quick commercial...

I'm sure ESPN [fill in the blank] will one day stop caring about what Madden fans are doing. Well, I can dream can't I?

I would do a commercial and have them show a slow-motion pass or run play for a TD and use the narration, music and camera angles they use in NFL Films.
