peyton hillis madden12 Peyton Hillis trumps Michael Vick for Madden 12 CoverHow about that… Michael Vick is generating some positive publicity! Indirectly, that is.

  ]]>Peyton Hillis. Underdog Hillis made it all the way to the final round of EA and ESPN’s bracket style voting for who would grace the game’s cover. After thirteen million votes, he eventually won out over Vick in the end. Though fans voted Vick all the way to the final throes of the competition, it’s probably for the best that he didn’t win an actual cover spot. The game will sell regardless of whose face and jersey is on the front — but there’s no way the gaming company wouldn’t have come under major criticism for a Vick fronted game. A PR nightmare, to say the least. All in all, the game is receiving plenty of positive publicity now that not-Michael-Vick is gracing the cover. Sounds like a win to us.
