News: Xbox 360 Madden NFL 10 simulation: New Orleans Saints defeat the Colts, 35-31
The Indianapolis Colts and Peyton Manning have experience on their side, but according to EA Sports' annual Madden NFL simulation, the Super Bowl XLIV win is going to... Who Dat? The Saints?!
That's right, EA Sports ran a Madden NFL 10 simulation of the match-up on Xbox 360 and the rookie Super Bowlers upset the Colts in a 35-31 victory. In addition to bringing the Lombardi Trophy back to Bourbon Street, the virtual Super Bowl indicates that Saints QB Drew Brees will receive MVP honors.
EA Sports' pre-Super Bowl simulation will have to go six-for-seven correct predictions, as it has forecast five out of the last six games since its 2004 inception. Even if this outing isn't accurate, parent company Electronic Arts still has reason to celebrate. Its upcoming game Dante's Inferno
is starring in a coveted Super Bowl commercial spot that cost mega-bucks, but should generate mega-publicity on February 7.
