Dass man einen Glitch in einem Spiel auch mal für Marketingzwecke einsetzen oder das Ganze mit etwas Humor nehmen kann, beweist EA mit einem neuen Trailer zu Madden NFL 15.

Ein Bug im Spiel sorgt unter Umständen dafür, dass ein einzelner Spieler plötzlich nur noch winzig dargestellt wird.

Dem kleinen Spieler dabei zuzuschauen, wie er zwischen den anderen Spielern in normaler Größe entlang rennt oder den nach wie vor großen Football mit sich trägt, ist durchaus amüsant.



Earlier this week we reported on a strange bug in Madden NFL 15 that made Browns rookie linebacker Christian Kirksey, who’s 6’2″, 235 lbs in real life, appear as a tiny, barely foot tall player in the game’s Tennessee Titans Solo Challenge within Madden Ultimate Team.

The hilarious sight of a miniature linebacker up against other hulking football players made the rounds online in pictures and YouTube videos, so rather than quickly patching the bug or stay quiet about it, Electronic Arts is embracing it.

The publisher is encouraging Madden NFL 15 owners to play with the tiny version of Kirksey themselves while they can.

“This weekend only, Madden Ultimate Team players can experience the Tiny Titan for themselves. All you need to do is log into Madden 15 and look for the direct link to the Ultimate Teams Weekly Challenges. #TinyTitan will be waiting,” EA Sports said on its official blog. “Not only will you be able to see and play against the Tiny Titan, it’ll also net you a few coins to help Collect, Upgrade and Dominate in Madden Ultimate Team. Come join the fastest growing mode in the game and compete against the Tiny Titan!”

Today, EA also released the video above featuring Kirksey himself.

Madden NFL 15 was released on August 26. For more on the game check out GameSpot’s review and what other critics are saying.

The PlayStation 4 is a big hit with 10 million systems sold in nine months, but like any piece of technology, it’s also faced its fair share of technical troubles. The latest example is error CE-33945-4, a major glitch that recently kept some PS4 owners from doing anything on their consoles. Sony told Kotaku earlier today that it was aware of this issue–affecting only a limited number of users–and has “made progress” toward a solution.

Finding a solution didn’t take too long, as just this afternoon, a PlayStation Support team memeber wrote on the PlayStation forums to say the issue has been fixed.

“Hey guys. This issue should now be resolved,” the staffer said. “Please try accessing your games again. If you are still having the issue try restoring licenses. If even after that you are still having issues, please let us know. Thanks!”

Sony said this issue only affected a “very small number of users.”

Error CE-33945-4 is detailed in forum posts on NeoGAF and PlayStation’s own social channels. According to personal accounts, users who encounter the glitch–and it’s unclear how it’s triggered–were blocked from playing games and DLC or accessing services like Netflix.
