Back in May, online retailers began listing a new version of Electronic Arts' Madden NFL 07 on Web sites. Dubbed Madden NFL 07 Hall of Fame Edition, it was a sort of collector's edition of the football game, featuring a bonus DVD with various goodies.

Today, EA announced that the game is in fact on the way for the PlayStation 2 and the Xbox 360. The Hall of Fame editions will ship on August 22, the same date as the standard editions. The PS2 edition will cost $59.99 and the Xbox 360 edition will be priced at $69.99.

Both versions will come with a bonus DVD that includes more than two hours of footage. Madden Hall of Fame for the PS2 will include a video preview of Madden NFL 07 for the PlayStation 3, a retrospective on John Madden's career as both coach and broadcaster, an ESPN tour of the Madden studios, and interviews with artists that contributed music to the game's soundtrack. The Xbox 360 edition won't feature a PS3 preview, but it will include the other bonuses as well as the eight-part ESPN miniseries Madden Nation.

John Madden is the former coach of the Oakland Raiders and familiar voice in the NFL broadcasting booth. Earlier this year, he was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, located in Canton, Ohio.
