Madden NFL tech to power football training simulators – seriously

Madden NFL Seriously Training Your Football Pros '07 - Image 1Yep, that’s the subject of the press release by EA Sports and XOS Technologies. The TDT Engine used in Madden NFL ’07 and NCAA Football ’07 is also now at the heart of the XOS PlayAction Simulator. Consider it a Madden with more options than your Madden, but that’s because you’re not in charge of whipping a football team into shape.

There are three flavors of XOS PlayAction, and no, their flavors are not Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo:

  • XOS PlayAction Publisher – Enables coaches to create 3-D playbooks, game-plan diagrams and testing protocols
  • XOS PlayAction Simulator PC – Enables athletes to run practice plays via laptop in a video-game simulated environment
  • XOS PlayAction Simulator VR – Integrates with the XOS SportMotion studio (a 3-D motion-capture lab) to provide athletes with a physically immersive, virtual reality experience
    • (Madden with a VR helmet, in other words)
