Madden NFL 13 became an instant hit when Electronic Arts announced that their latest edition of the popular Football franchise has sold about 900,000 copies during its first 24 hours of being available in the market for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The Madden NFL 13 game has seen vast improvements over its predecessor, the Madden NFL 12.

EA improved the left-analog stick passing controls and they were able to integrate new trajectories for passes and improved ball speeds.

Quarterbacks on the other hand have new moves to avoid blitzes and pass rush.

EA also included more than 430 new catch formations some of which are directed towards the improvement to the left-analog stick.

The game has received positive reviews from different sources. IGN reviewed the game and gave it a 9 out of 10 rating. They said the game’s overall play and Connected Careers were all great.

But IGN also said that the Kinect voice support of Madden NFL 13 is something that developers should work on.

The 900,000 game sales for the game is a 7% increase from last year’s Madden NFL 12.
