Long time Madden NFL fans would be aware of the ‘Madden Curse‘ – the jinx that hits any player who gets featured on the cover of the EA NFL game. Now recent reports suggest that Electronic Arts is developing a cinematic comedy based on this infamous Madden Curse. According to the website The Wrap, this project is being led by the vice president of EA entertainment, Pat O’Brien even though the site has not mentioned any named source from the company for the information. The film`s story will most probably follow a former Madden video game champion being forced out of retirement as he becomes the subject of a new game`s box art.

No studio or actors have been confirmed for the project as of now. A reality show which is dedicated to the franchise already broadcasts on ESPN2 which is a big hit amongst American fans and athletes. Although this concept might not be able to advance far enough, EA has also been planning for more films based on games such as Mass Effect, Army of Two, The Sims and Spore,etc. But it is worth noting that none of these projects have progressed beyond the planning stages till now.

Mass Effect 2, the PS3 game that is slated for a January 18 release will be using the engine that developers at Bioware originally created for Mass Effect 3. This news was revealed in a podcast by Jesse Houston, the producer of the PS3 version of Mass Effect 2. This is expected to offer a visually stunning experience to the PS3 user as compared to what was offered on the XBOX 360 version that was released earlier this year.

Speaking about this upcoming game,Houston said,

“One of the first things you’re going to see is improved graphics. We actually created the engine for Mass Effect 3 and used that to make Mass Effect 2 PS3. So we took the content, the story and all of the other assets that made up Mass Effect 2 and we put it into the Mass Effect 3 engine.”

Houston has also promised some more cool additions to the game like improved planet scanning and including all patches and bug fixes that have been intended for the XBOX 360 version after the release. Mass Effect 2 for PS 3 is slated for release on January 18.
