Brett Favre to Remain in Packers Uniform for Madden 2009 Cover
Written Friday, August 08, 2008 By Jeff Lao
So it's official. The Green Bay Packers has finally traded Brett Favre to the New York Jets. How does this effect EA and Madden 2009? It really doesn't.
MTV Multiplayer has the word from EA that the cover will remain the same, with Favre in a Packers uniform. EA does not plan to repackage Madden 09, but will offer a free downloadable cover on easports.com featuring Favre in a Jets uniform. Fans will be able to print out the new cover and insert it into the game case.
There will also be a roster update on August 11th, the day before Madden 09 hits the stores. The roster update will be downloadable. Favre will indeed be the QB of the Jets, but the roster update is not mandatory unless you plan to play online.
What a Off Season for the Packers and Favre, huh? Not to mention a little extra work for EA Sports as well.
