Electronic Arts has announced a new fantasy football initiative that will bring together Madden NFL 09 with EA SPORTS Fantasy Football for the ultimate fantasy football experience.
The initiative will begin later this summer when EA rolls out a new fantasy football website at fantasy.EASPORTS.com that is being designed to take advantage of the Xbox 360 Live and the Playstation 3 Network.
Prospective fantasy footballers will be able to play online for free at the website, or download the EA SPORTS Fantasy Football Live Draft Tracker via Xbox Live or the Playstation 3 network directly onto their Xbox 360 or PS3 console for a small fee.
Once the application is installed, players will be able to draft their team and track their team’s progress online in either a full-screen or picture-in-picture window through Xbox 360 or Playstation 3.
Players will also be able to pick a team from the application and import it into Madden NFL 09 on Xbox 360 or PS3. The team or teams will be available for all modes of play in Madden NFL 09.
