Madden enters DS endzone

Madden NFL 06 platforms 'confirmed', in case you were wondering

While there is very little in the way of surprise/shock/extreme heart-stopping horror at the official announcement of Madden NFL 06, we thought you'd be interested that it has reportedly been confirmed for DS, as well as all the usual formats.

An American press release unveiling All-Pro Philadelphia Eagles and NFC Champ quarterback Donovan McNabb (A.K.A. some bloke we've never heard of) as the cover star, was allegedly complimented with news that the game would release for DS, PS2, Xbox, GameCube, PC and GBA Advance in America this August.

Oddly however, there was no mention of the PSP version, which is also widely expected to be in the works. We're expecting news on that matter soon, including UK release dates for all formats.

There you go - hardly story of the century, but worth a quick mention simply 'cos it's Madden. You can go back to watching Richard and Judy now...
