So apparently in the US Sony is countering Xbox's Madden bundle. From August 25th - August 30th every new PS4 system comes with a free copy of Madden 16.

Just a heads-up that Target is also giving 15 percent off any PS4 purchase this week via Cartwheel. If free Madden applies at any retailer you buy a PS4 from, that would mean you could get Batman, Madden, and a PS4 for 340.

Target currently has 15% off new PS4s so combined with the movers coupon and red card 5% discount that would be 30% off a PS4 and another 30-40 off depending on trade value of madden 16. Possibly $270 + tax for a new PS4... I might have to bite finally.

To me, the PS4 one is more eye-catching and possibly more effective. Look at how big "Free" and "Madden 16" are.

Wouldn't that be 20% off

Eh, not really all that good of an offer. The Xbox One lasts until mid-September while this one isn't even a week.

Why isn't Tom Brady on the cover?
Honesty EA...Was Peyton the last QB on your cover?
No cash for the QB love?

I wonder why Sony is specific with this "counter-bundle", offering Madden with every console, whereas Microsoft is usually broad with their "counter-bundle", offering "any free game" the week the game comes out. Differences in contracts, or is it just because this is a retailer-created bundle?

The sale is for 5 days, and only at Gamestop.

If Sony is only letting people know about it 24 hours before Madden ships, then this is a pretty incompetent promotion. This has Gamestop's fingerprints on it more than Sony's.

Yeah because EA and the league really want to associate themselves with Tom Brady right now...

I was surprised Gronk lost out though. He's a way bigger star.

Thats not how these deals work. At all.

You think GS is giving away milions in Madden for the heck of it? Its certainly not to drive new hardware, they make pennies off of a new hardware sale.

Its Sony for certain
