Madden 2012: Guess where you can download it and where you can’t

If you want to play it on an Xbox 360 or PS3, you have to leave your house, go to a store, and buy it on a plastic disc. If you want to play it right now, you can buy it and download it for iOS and Android from Apple or Google’s app stores.

Any surprise where the growth in gaming is coming from?

(Yes, you could have downloaded it and played it on the Xbox 360 and PS3 over the past three days as part of EA’s “Season Ticket” early-access service. But that copy expired yesterday. “For Xbox 360 and PS3, the only way to play the full game now is through physical, packaged retail copies,” an EA rep confirms.)
