Madden fans have spoken and voted for the new coverboy of the 2012 video game.

It is not Michael Vick.

For the first time in the game's 23 year history, EA Sports allowed fans to vote for their choice of football player to grace the cover.

Through a tournament, the final two came down to Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick and Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis.

On ESPN's Sportsnation, Hillis was announced the winner.

EA Sports said 13 million votes came in throughout the tournament.

Vick told ESPN's Colin Cowherd he is proud of Hillis and thought it was great that he himself was in the final two.

"My fans stuck in there; I made it this far and it's a big plus for me," Vick said.
