1st NEXT-GEN Madden 2006 screens - 1st footage on April 23 on ESPN

yyyyyyyy

unlike the previous Madden teaser pic released by EA a few months ago which
was completely *pre-rendered CG*, these new pictures are most likely
realtime (especially Pic 1, definitally realtime) from the next-gen Madden
2006 game.

[my speculation, guesswork]
probably the Xbox 360 version, running on pre-final hardware (ATI R500
graphics) or from older Xenon SDK hardware (ATI Radeon 9800 /R360 or Radeon
X800 / R420 series) from ATI but will also, obviously be running,
eventually, on PlayStation3 powered by an Nvidia graphics processor, as well
as Nintendo Revolution, powered by a different ATI graphics processor
(Hollywood).
