Oh Happy Day! The news story that keeps on giving just delivered a really nice printer-specific tidbit, with the potential to boost industry morale just a tad.
In a move that's sure to bolster summer sales in the ink supplies biz, EA Sports has announced it will offer a "Brett Favre as a New York Jet" downloadable (and printable) image, to replace the "Favre as a Packer" standard cover adorning the mega-hit video game Madden 2009. The game goes on sale at 12:01am Tuesday, August 12th, so obviously the shipping pipelines are full of the #4-in-green-and-gold product, but EA Sports aims to please its demanding customers, thus the download-and-print upgrade solution.
