I was at Gamestop the other day and the cashier asked me if I wanted to reserve the last Madden that they were going to make. This puzzeled me. Are they going to discontinue making the Madden franchise after this one or was this cashier wrong with there information?

Madden definitely has no plans to stop. It is a cash cow.

I heard somewhere that after this year, EA is going to take away the Madden name and just name the game ESPN Football 200-whatever. I just heard that, though, so don't take anything from it.

EA Games and ESPN sports are two totally different game entities. How would that happen? I really doubt that is true at all.

ESPN has been used alot lately in EA sports games so it wouldn't suprise me at all if that was the case.

ESPN formerly had a deal with the 2k series or the sony series i forget which but they now have reached a deal with EA so they could go with this title. It was not ESPN producing it hence not a different entity.

NBA Live 07 had ESPN elements in it, so I wouldn't say that EA and ESPN completely segregate themselves.

Ohh, got ya. Well in that case the 2K series had some nice elements that Madden could incorporate. But I never liked the 2K series, there franchise was confusing and not as polished as Maddens.
