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.
