Electronic Arts has released Madden NFL 2001 for the Sony PlayStation. This first release on the PlayStation will be followed by versions for the PC, the PlayStation 2, the Nintendo 64, and the Game Boy Color.
"My game is always number one because we make it so that anybody from a rookie video game player to the expert gamers who have been playing it faithfully since 1989 can enjoy it," said former coach and broadcaster John Madden. "Part of making the game accessible to a lot of people is not just in how you make the game, but in how many platforms it's available on to play."
"This is our fifth year of creating Madden for the PlayStation and we feel this by far the best one ever," said Steven Chiang, executive producer for the Madden franchise. "Everything we've learned from the previous versions has been incorporated into this game to produce the best looking, best playing, most realistic and fun football game on the market."
The game carries a suggested retail price of US$39.99.
