I don’t really know what to make of this interview with EA Audio Director Aubrey Hodges over at Gamezone, but this little piece of information should be news to you Madden lovers….

I know it’s kind of early in the year but can you give us an idea of what kind of sound changes we can expect from Madden, NHL, FIFA – all the different sports games?

AH: I have to be careful about this. Although I can… We are making a change in the Madden commentators. I can’t mention who they are. We are using some of the biggest names in the business. We listened to the fans and we are making a change. And that will be more than one. It will be a fantastic year for Madden fans, I think they’re gonna be thrilled with this new direction. I don’t think I can say much more than that.

Hmm. The game is named after Madden and he has always involved his partner, be it Summerall or Michaels, in the virtual broadcast booth. So are they replacing just Al or both? And if it’s both, who will be the new team? Buck and Aikman??? Nantz and Simms??? Oh god no….
