Midway Games Inc., a leading interactive entertainment industry publisher and developer, today announced that it has shipped Blitz: The League
for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Bill Romanowski
, a 4–time Super Bowl champion and arguably one of the most feared linebackers to play the game, joins Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor

"We're excited to now offer that alternative title on the Xbox 360, complete with the award–winning quality of gameplay and entertainment Blitz: The League is recognized as having."
