    This article fails to mention it will cost 1200 microsoft points, and should be out in January 2012.
    I hadn't seen that confirmed. I'll look now and if it's official, I'll add it. Thanks for the heads-up.

    The first Blitz was the best. They should put that on XBLA.....

    I still want to see the NFL license on other games. Competition is good and Monopolies are bad.

    With EA having the sole rights to make NFL licensed games, they decide on the quality as opposed to being pushed to put out something better.
    Yes, I totally agree.

    This Blitz game looks fun though.
    Expect the unexpected.

    I don't play sports games much but I concur. For those that know me it is no secret that I HATE EA....BUNCH OF ASSHOLES (except for TerrorFall).

    Oh and on the topic, what crappy game and bad idea to bring it back if you ask me. I'd rather see a resurrection of Pig Skin 621 A.D. (hey I'm oldschool!) on XBLA.

    Well cool.

    I liked NFL Blitz, and I also like Blitz The League. So I,m a winner here !

    hopefully it's nothing at all like madden arcade... surely EA will find a way to ruin it

    Actually.... is this like madden arcade? it looks like it to me... I personally love Madden arcade. Its a good alternative game to the regular madden series. However, if NFL BLITZ is just like Arcade, I can't see me putting out the money for this...

    This....????!!! Is not Blitz... this is more like that other NFL game Ea had... NFL Tour.... Blitz should be more like Prison yard football but more over the top.

    Oh noes. I will wait for Blitz 2 next year or Blitz 3 in 2013, or Blitz 4 in 2014

    Something for EA to run into the ground. He says so in the interview. "something to expand upon in the coming years"... that's secret code for we will release this again next year!!

    EA Blitz: On Fire Edition in 2012 I'm calling it now.

    Wish I could play the original Midway port. Oh well... gotta find new ways to make money off old ideas or else it'd be straight up copying.

    This will be a day one purchase for me. I've been a long time fan of the blitz series and I thought it was lost forever after midway's bankruptcy.clap

    I agree. I see them doing what they did with NBA Jam. They're going to release a barebones version first ignoring the additions the series made in the past only to add that stuff later. I wish they would make another NBA street while they're at it.
