Monday: We play Madden for eight hours straight

GameSpot's second Live Gameplay Marathon begins Monday, August 21, and features the Xbox 360, PS2, and Xbox versions of Madden NFL 07.

On August 21 from 4 p.m. until midnight PDT, GameSpot subscribers will have a chance to get an extensive firsthand look at the latest installment in EA Sports' wildly popular football franchise, Madden NFL 07...or, rather, a secondhand look. We'll be bringing viewers a live feed of a marathon stretch of Madden gameplay, featuring the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, and Xbox versions of the game and all the different modes of play available.

GameSpot sports editor Brian Ekberg, associate editor Alex Navarro, and features producer Rich Gallup will be driving the game, offering color commentary about the experience as it transpires. While the video feed will be open to everyone, GameSpot subscribers will be able to chat with one another over the course of the event and send in their questions to the crew starting at 7 p.m. PDT.

In summary:

What: GameSpot Live Gameplay Marathon, featuring Madden NFL 07 (Xbox 360, PS2, Xbox)
When: Monday, August 21, 4:00 p.m. PDT to 12:00 a.m. PDT

Pretty funny Jerkface96! I heard that if you press X and A at the same time, Terrell Owens whines like the **** that he is. When they say that this game is authentic, they really mean it.
