Tecmo Super Bowl Used to Predict Outcome of Real Super Bowl

tecmosuperbowl1-1.gifForget EA’s simulation of the upcoming Super Bowl using Madden 08. The real question is, what does an old 8-bit game from the NES days say is going to be the outcome? Well, that’s one college student decided to find out. Using a Tecmo Super Bowl ROM with an updated roster and stats, he ran his own simulation to determine the victor in this Sunday’s New York Giants versus New England Patriots match up. And the winner? Er…the New England Patriots with final score of 24-21. Which is…the..same…winner…that…EA…predicted… Excuse me, but I have a few bets to make.

Nobody predicted that the Giants would be in the Super Bowl so I’m not counting them out yet. Technically they shouldn’t have beaten Dallas or Green Bay but here we are.

At no point in my lifetime do I ever expect to see the Atlanta Falcons win a Super Bowl. :cool:

I’m not going for the Patriots or the Giants(I’m a Cowboys fan) but I don’t doubt that the Patriots will probably win.
