Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

February 1, 2009 -

The Pittsburgh Steelers will win Super Bowl XLIII by a score of XXVIII - XXIV.

At least, that's the word from EA Sports. The publisher used its best-selling Madden NFL 2009 to predict the outcome of today's big game.

An EA Sports press release says that the game will be close:

Holding off a fourth quarter comeback by the Cardinals, the Steelers bring the Vince Lombardi trophy back to the Steel City for the second time in the past four years and for a sixth time in franchise history, setting an NFL record.

GP: So, GamePolitics readers, who do you think will win? Leave a comment with your prediction of the final score...

That's pretty amazing - only one point difference for each team.  Maybe it's time to retire the real superbowl and just go with the Madden one.  Then maybe we can reintroduce cricket to America, LOL.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

Wow just subtract 1 point from each team.

Steelers by 10 to beat the spread.

And I've mentioned it practically every time I came around over the past week, but a certain armchair ex-lawyer had the Cards by 14 in one of his rambling meta-posts on the NY game bill story.  I couldn't drag out a further explanation from him, unfortunately.

Personally, I saw his prediction as a thinly veiled analogy to himself, you know with the underdog pulling out the win and all.

Then again, maybe I'm giving Jack a little too much credit.

If I end up doing anything today, I will probably be playing Metroid Prime. Stupid Meta Ridley killed me last time I played him.

Lemme guess, Prime 1, right? Easy kill. Plasma Beam, not Super Missiles. Saves your Missiles for when you need them. Prime 3 can be a bit of trouble. I'll save my advice for Meta Ridley in that game for when you reach it.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

I never liked football. On the rare occasion that I did end up watching, I always rooted for the clock.

I think I'll play No More Heroes tonight instead.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

Steelers will win. Score is irrelevant.

anytime score is irrelevant, I think of this:

Marge: So many choices... Can't I just bet that all the horses will have a good time?

Bookie: You want that line. (Points over to the counter labeled "Wuss Bets")

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

Do... Do you actually want a list of who cares?

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

So what's the context?  Do these Madden "official pre-plays" have any record of accurate predictions?

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

yeah, they say they've picked 4 of last 5 winners.

 

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

I really don't care as I'm not into sports at all.  And whenever the Superbowl comes up, I always think of Andy Milonakis' "Superbowl is Gay" song.

If I do watch it at all, it'll be for the commercials, especially the movie trailers.  A lot of the ones they'll be showing are for ones I'm especially interested in seeing including Star Trek, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Race to Witch Mountain and Land of the Lost.  Then again, I can see them all online if I miss them.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

I was gonna use my old school Football Handheld from Mattel.  The one with a bunch of little lights that are supposed to represent players and the football.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

Cardinals 27, Steelers 24

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Pelicans. Solidarity for the Saints = No retreat, no surrender. 2013 = Saints' revenge on the NFL. Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always.

Re: Madden 2009 Predicts Steelers Will Win Super Bowl

Lord help me, but I'm seeing red, 27-20.

Re: Madden 2009 Predicts Steelers Will Win Super Bowl

It all depends on the ability of the Steelers to pressure Warner and force turnovers.  If they can keep him off balance, the Steelers win going away, 30 - 13.

If not, I see a closer game with the Steelers winning 24 -20.

Andrew EisenYes, I'm such a big Nintendo dork that I read Nintendo's quarterly financial reports.07/31/2014 - 2:09pm
Andrew EisenCool tidbit - Mario Kart 8 sales account for more than half of total Wii U software sales for the last quarter even though it was only available for the last third.07/31/2014 - 2:09pm
Andrew EisenStill a pretty cool promotion. Unfortunately for me, I'm not interested in purchasing Mario Kart 8 and I already owned or didn't want any of the free games on offer.07/31/2014 - 1:43pm
Andrew EisenInteresting that EU had 10 games to choose from while North America only had four.07/31/2014 - 1:41pm
MaskedPixelanteIt certainly worked, I probably would never have bought Mario Kart 8 if it didn't come with a free copy of Wind Waker HD.07/31/2014 - 1:14pm
Andrew EisenI imagine will see similar promotions like "Buy Mario Kart 8 get a download code for one of these specific games" but almost certainly not for all of its (however you would define) biggest releases.07/31/2014 - 11:24am
MaskedPixelanteI wonder if Nintendo is going to be doing "buy one get one free" promos for all their biggest releases going forward.07/31/2014 - 10:48am

ZippyDSMleeWouldn't they be able to afford and get done in a timely manner a general gba emluator for the 3DS? It seems to me if they want to make money off sales they need to do it.07/31/2014 - 7:25am
Sora-ChanAmbassador program, that's what I was looking for. Anyway the other games that have been made no longer exclusive to the early adopters got updates in their software. It'll only be a matter of time more than likely for the GBA to get the same treatment.07/31/2014 - 5:35am
Sora-ChanI might be naming it incorrectly when I say "founder" i mean the program for earlier adopters.07/31/2014 - 5:34am
Sora-Chanthe 3DS's GBA emulator was a rush job due to the founder program. No other GBA titles have been released on the 3DS yet. If/When they do get around to it, they'll more than likely update the emulation software.07/31/2014 - 5:32am
Zenemulator...it's not just a slap job that makes "some" work..they do it for each which is why they work so well. I would rather have the quality over just a slap job.07/30/2014 - 5:48pm
ZenMatthew there is a difference between "worked" and "accurate". You play the Nintendo VC titles they play as damn close to the original as possible. The PSP would just run them as best they could, issues and all. And Masked...EACH VC title has their own07/30/2014 - 5:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOnce again, the 3DS already HAS a GBA emulator, it just can't run at the same time as the 3DS OS.07/30/2014 - 4:54pm
Matthew Wilsonyou cant street pass in ds mode ether, and if moders can make a gba emulator that runs very well on the psp as I understand it. you are telling me that Nintendo devs are not as good as moders?07/30/2014 - 4:49pm
Zenperformance. Halo 1 and 2 worked great because they actually did custom work on each of them...just like Nintendo does now lol07/30/2014 - 4:08pm
Zenexisting hardware while the GBA has to be emulated completely. Same reason the 360 couldn't run most Original Xbox games correctly, or had issues because they just did "blanket approach" for their emulation which led to game killing bugs or horrible07/30/2014 - 4:07pm
ZenSora/Matthew: It's not just Miiverse, but the whole idea of streetpass and things like that would be affected if the OS is not running. And just because a 3DS game can be downloaded and run does not mean that GBA can as easily. Those 3DS games use the07/30/2014 - 4:06pm
