For those of us that like to keep track of a console’s lifecycle ER style, you were able to call the original Xbox’s on August 12th, 2008. It was the day Madden 08 was released — the last disc to ever drop for the console… or was it?
A year to the day, like sightings of a resurrected Jesus or a Houdini seance, Madden 09 is listed on the Wikipedia pages for both Madden 09 and List of Xbox Games as releasing on the original console as well.
The official website doesn’t list it as a platform, nor does anywhere else on the net that I can find. And yet it’s such a glaring oversight on a Wikipedia page that is likely monitored pretty frequently for accuracy by EA that I can’t help but wonder — did Madden somehow play Dr. Frankenstein to the original Xbox?
