- Another year, another Madden, and another Madden Challenge. EA Sports announced details for the Madden NFL 08 Challenge today, with the Madden Challenge Regional Tournament set to start on September 15 in Dallas, Texas.
The regional tournament will encompass 17 U.S. cities in total, with 256 competitors at each venue; winners will advance to the Finals Tournament in Los Angeles, CA for a chance to win $100,000 dollars. This is also the second year in a row that the Madden Challenge - in its sixth year - will be an international affair, with NFL International sponsoring the event in London, Toronto and Mexico City.
Noteworthy is the fact that the main competition will take place on the Xbox 360 version of Madden 08, which runs at 60 frames-per-second, compared to the PlayStation 3's 30fps, making the visuals a little a smoother. There will also be a competition on the PlayStation 2 version, with another 256 competitors at each venue and winners receiving $1,000 dollars.
