Anyone else taken any interest in this

$100 bucks for a Madden game AND get NFL's Sunday Ticket for Free? The game may see minimal play, but the amount of Sunday Ticket that's gonna get watched is ridiculous!

Also, not sure if I'm late on this, but hey...just tossing it out there.

    I have preordered it (on XBox) as well for the same reason. I will be watching all the painful Sundays of Bengals Football.

    The only reason this has peaked my interest is because of the Sunday Ticket deal. You're essentially paying $40 for a $300+ package.

    Exactly...that's why I'm half tempted to go with the offer. Suprised I haven't seen @fatcat chime in on it yet.

    Live? If so things have changed since the last time I bunkered down on Sundays all season (admittedly 3-4 seasons ago).

    The hoops necessary to jump through to get a quality stream, weekly, make a $40 fee worth it.

    I don't have any TV service, only internet

    So this would be great for you because with this deal you don't have to have DirectTV to get Sunday Ticket, only an internet connection.

    Except he already gets streams for free and might not want to play Madden...

    and I don't own a console.

    also, you can get DirecTV for $29.95/month right now which includes NFL Sunday ticket for free

    I don't know what this thread has become...

    A contract for DirectTV is in no way cheaper than a vidjagame, the deal is good for internet only users. The hell are we arguing about?

    I just got the game in the mail today. If anyone else gets it on Xbox and would like to start up an online league let me know.

    Got mine today, too! Unfortunately, it's a PS3 version. But, I'm soooooooper stoked about the NFL package and the games (OH GOD THE GAMES!!!!) I'll be able to catch anywhere anytime throughout the season.

    Guy 1: "Oh hey, did you hear about the awesome play that X did over Y?"
    Me: "No"
    Guy 1: "Wuttttt?!?!!"
    Me: "BECAUSE I WAS WATCHING IT, BABY!!! I saws it real time with the NFL package...C'mon man!!" /Screams Boom and shoves device in guys face.

    Yeah, I'm not really excited about it at all...
