Madden franchise coming to Facebook

Farmville and Mafia Wars won't be the only annoying posts filling up your Facebook News Feed soon, as the makers of the Madden franchise plan to develop a game for the social networking giant.

There aren't a lot of details available but EA Sports president Peter Moore said Friday that the Facebook version of the game will be much simpler than the console version. Obviously many browsers couldn't support a graphically intense version of the game such as you can play on PS3 or Xbox, but the Facebook version could be very similar to the current iPhone version of the game.

Facebook recently boasted about its 400 millionth user and clearly provides a huge network of potential gamers and, more importantly, a large audience for advertisers to reach. If this year's Madden is any indication, the Facebook game will be very advertisement-heavy.
