Damon Grow or MS needs to step up and squash the rumor before this thing gets out of control and both leave a bad taste to me. This actually would be a resurgence in gaming to me, hasn't been the same without a football game from someone other than EA

Re: Joe Montana Football 16: A Mysterious Game Remains Under Wraps

Regardless of whether this "rumor" turns out to be true or not, I hope the hype around the idea of something like this goes viral. It's a shame this mess with football gaming has gone on this long and the vast majority of entities with the power and/or a voice to change things doing nothing of any consequence.

It's beyond ridiculous the way one company has been allowed to represent NFL football gaming for the past decade and at the very least, hopefully the thirsty reaction of football gamers from a lone post on a sports gaming site, in conjunction with the potential of a new football game being released, will cause influential entities to take notice.

That's the one I go off of- he says Madden doesn't have a lot of competition, something that would be difficult in doing, they dropped the idea at that time, etc...

Who knows, maybe they went back to it, not a lot to go on.
It's the same vid. Joe starts out by saying he was looking to make a game to compete against Madden originally. They decided to go in a different direction with the app...but here we are discussing a Joe Montana game.

1. Joe's original goal was a console game to compete vs madden.

2. Detailed graphics including sweat pooling and vein dilation on the players, working ticker in stadium, 3500 permutations for fan rendering.

3. Graphic artists whose game credits include Ryse and Forza 2, Xbox one and pc titles.

4. Constant references to 2k and a direct shot at madden. #Not just a roster update.

5. A franchise mode that will be the "soul" of this game.

Compared to that, what info points to this being just a mobile game?

Just read about Microsoft's Universal App Platform on Yahoo tech.

I wonder if this would allow team Montana to use the NFL license to make a tablet game that can take advantage of your pc's hardware?

Really intriguing post here on PastaPadre by IownYou:

http://www.pastapadre.com/2015/03/03...ent-1887191596

It pretty much sums up all of the available material evidence that would link back to many of MisterFootballSF's claims. No proof, but certainly some evidence to give examination to.

When you read through, you see a lot of clues that, if it turns out to be accurate, we'll look back and say "wow, how did we miss that!"

Fun stuff.

That's an excellent post. I could see this type of marketing work well: the silence followed by a splash that casual gamers don't see coming. It would make it's own headlines since there hasn't been an official game in 10 years.

That and a sweet commercial with "This Isn't Madden" posted up over a sizzle reel with amazingly detailed players.

Re: Joe Montana Football 16: A Mysterious Game Remains Under Wraps

That was an excellent string of comments by IOWN YOU. Thanks for pointing that out, FaceMask!

And absolutely, Primo. The way to make a splash with JM16 would be to showcase it during your presser at E3. Instead of just promoting it like a normal game, Microsoft could literally blow the roof off that audience if they flashed the 2K logo in between some shots of the game in slow motion or something like that. I don't want to play fantasy booker here too much, but at this point, it only makes sense to me to keep quiet until E3 and then pull out the big guns. That would create the buzz needed for a competing football game that is about to release it's first iteration.

At that point, I don't think a soul would care that they haven't released any info to this point.

Just curious from anyone who frequents that site but was it a fly by night post or one made by a regular poster?
