First look at Madden 13 from EA Sports

Sure, this is from the big-screen versions, but given the great job EA did with FIFA, you'd have to hope the Vita version gets all this gloss too. Expect that scary rubber-faced Phil Simms commentator, he can be first for the trash can.

With Calvin Johnson adorning the cover, this update looks to have had a lot of effort put into it, and while motion-blur isn't the first feature I'd be shouting about, the others look like solid additions to the series.

UPDATE: I read somewhere, but can't find the source (found it - IGN), that the Vita version will run on last year's engine with some of this year's tweaks. Hopefully that should be good enough, but the more EA can cram in the better. Also, the Vita and PS3 versions won't share saves, which kind of misses the point of the whole Vita connectivity issues. EA really needs to get on the ball here, as screwing up the first version could irreparably damage its future chances.
