Okay but if they know how the vocal minority will react they aren't going to throw meat to the rabid dogs. Gameplay will be start popping up in the next few weeks and everybody can jump all over it then

No they are in the right business. They make hundreds of millions of dollars a year. They also recognize that showing videos of a game not scheduled for release until August doesnt help sales. If anything, forums like this where we dissect every second of every video could hurt sales because we shine a spotlight on issues that the average fan/consumer may not care about.

Ive been on OS for 12 years and no one has ever been able to satisfactorily answer this question:

How does showing a game months in advance help a series like Madden?

Showing the game in HD with carefully edited clips can help Madden because it will only show the good things about the game and will get people excited.

How will showing a video of a beta version of the game, in less than HD quality and being filmed by a phone/camcorder help sales?

Eh, I mildly object to this.

No harm in pointing out obvious concerns to be respectfully discussed. If there weren't so many issues to begin with then I doubt a lot of people, including myself, would be looking for issues in the first place.

I mean, I understand the point of view. I can't say overreactions never happen on this forum, and I can't say I never overreact, but I don't feel like I should be ashamed for looking at the Kap photo and noticing that three linemen are seeming to slide into each other very awkwardly. It probably doesn't mean anything at all, other than looking funny. Still, something about the "It's not EA's fault, it's our fault" mentality bothers me.

Not really. NBA 2k isnt playable. Neither is WWE 2k. There are plenty of sports games that are coming out that arent playable.

If the game is great it will sell itself without needing to be seen 2 months before release. If it is bad showing it early will only hurt their reputation and profit. Like you said, they've basically got little or nothing to gain by showing it early. And every video game developer wants to control which parts of their game are seen by the public before release, not just a Madden thing

Not sure what you are talking about, there are multiple impressions on sites just like the bunch posted on the front page of this site. Is that not press coverage? We must take their word for it, but no videos at all, come on.

No actually companies go to the trade show to promote their game.

But they do have playable Madden builds on the floor, so how are your examples relevant?
