    Well, they’ve been saying that America’s “not ready” for a black president, yet the best-selling game in the country ever has a black lead character.

    It was just a throw-away quip, don’t go all N’Gai Croal on me. :-D

    I would imagine that Madden 09 will surpass that, it is going to be the best version to date (bloody better be, they have had 20 years practice now)

    And, on the topic of mild xenophobia, it’s encouraging to see a Scottish export do so well for itself in the US.
