Madden NFL 25 will be out August 27, so we're guessing that most sports gamers will end up grabbing the game on Xbox 360 or PS3. Well, EA is fine with that, but the publisher also wants football fans to invest in an additional copy on either Xbox One or PS4. They're willing to offer some upgrades and perks as incentive, though whether the bonuses are enough incentive is pretty subjective.
The bonuses will be for Madden Ultimate Team. Players will be allowed to perform a one-time transfer of up to 1,100 items -- 45 players, 55 items from the active roster, and up to 1,000 reserves -- through Origin to Xbox LIVE or Sony Entertainment Network.
Ultimate Team users can still access and use the items in their current-gen copies of Madden 25, but Ultimate Team cards can't be auctioned or traded once transferred.
On top of all this, Anniversary Edition players who participate in this next/current-gen thing will be given six Madden Ultimate Team All Pro packs on their next-gen consoles.
