Bears Host Packers In The Madden NFL 12 Demo

A matchup between two of the oldest teams --and bitter rivals--  in the NFL is your backdrop for the Madden NFL 12 demo, available now for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears met in the most recent NFC Championship game back in January with Green Bay winning 21-14 on their way to Super Bowl XLV.

When you download the demo through Xbox Live or PlayStation Network, you’re getting the first look at Soldier Field and it’ll be your first chance to see how the Packers look as defending champions. Chicago’s recent roster moves will be evident with Roy Williams now in the mix at wide receiver and a new look at tight end with Greg Olsen now playing for Carolina.

The demo will feature five minute quarters and a couple of quarterbacks that will definitely help you get the feel for the passing offense in Madden NFL 12. It should be enough to compel you to pre-order a copy of Madden NFL 12 or at least grab a Season Ticket if you want the full Madden NFL 12 experience three days before it’s available in stores.

Oh and top it all off, with the Madden NFL 12 demo you might win a Chevrolet Cruze.

    it is available on xbox live right now, but will not be available until this afternoon when PSN updates itself! That is B.S. Ea you dropped the ball on this one! Just because they pay for Xbox live does not mean they should get it first! I understand it is just a few hours but still, tell Sony to update or refresh itself so we get to play the demo! Since you brag about it all over the internet! GET ON THE BALL!!!! WTF!
