Shopping For NCAA Football ’13 [Game or $50 Giveaway: 7/31/12]

As part of a little social shopper insights study, I was sent on a mission to pick up NCAA Football ’13 from Walmart. When approaching the video games section, there was plenty of signage, making it easy to spot the game. There were plenty of copies for Xbox 360 available for grabs (secured in a plastic case). There were also plenty behind the main security glass.


Prior to our shop, I created a cute custom cover for the game using the NCAA You’re Covered App on Facebook. The photo of Jayden was such a perfect fit for the cover! Game face!



Jayden will be so excited to see his face on the cover of a game, but he’ll obviously be clueless about how to play. Leave that to Daddy to teach him the ropes! It’ll take a while I’m sure!


In case you missed my other posts about the game (this is the last one I promise!), here are some new features to expect when playing NCAA Football ’13.

New features in NCAA Football ’13

An All-New Passing Game: A revolutionary passing system brings added authenticity to the Quarterback position from ball trajectory to play action pass to the option. Enhanced receiver control puts you in position to make a play on the ball and new read and react defensive coverage delivers greater realism on the gridiron.

Reaction Time: Great players see and feel the game differently. With Reaction Time, the game slows down during key moments, increasing your on-field awareness and opening up more opportunities as you sense things before they happen.

Dynamic Dynasty: Recruiting goes deeper than ever with the addition of dynamic recruiting pitches. For the first time ever, your recruiting grades can change each week based on your performance in Dynasty mode. In addition, Gameday Saturdays come to life with live studio updates and enhanced commentary by Rece Davis.

Heisman Challenge: Win it for your school as you play as one of 10 former Heisman Trophy winners under center, in the backfield, or split wide, see if you can utilize his legendary skills for your favorite college team in a quest to match his award-winning historical performances and win the Heisman Trophy once again. Choose from the following former Heisman players: Robert Griffin III, Doug Flutie, Herschel Walker, Marcus Allen, Charlie Ward, Barry Sanders, Desmond Howard, Eddie George, Carson Palmer, Andre Ware.

And the winner is… Keonté!

Winner will be able to choose from an upcoming EA game including Madden 13, FIFA 13 or Medal of Honor, or NHL13 or a $50 Walmart gift card!

      Inlinkz seems to be a little slow, but yours is there. The thumbnail is still processing which is no problem. :-)
