Gaming news round-up: Lego Star Wars, EA's Super Bowl 50 prediction and Doom release date

Here's your weekly round-up of the biggest video game news stories from the past seven days, featuring the leaking and then announcement of a new Lego game based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a (slightly illegal) Pokémon soundtrack vinyl and the winner of Super Bowl 50... according to Madden 16.
A new Lego game based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released this summer but before Warner Bros got the chance to reveal the big news, a product page leaked the game's existence. A trailer was also leaked.
The listing on the Xbox store, which offered a set of screenshots, a description and a release date, ruined the surprise. However, Warner Bros later confirmed the game will be out on 28 June and will be available on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Wii U, Xbox 360, PS3, Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita.
Bethesda's new Doom game will be released globally for PS4, Xbox One and PC on 13 May, Bethesda has announced. Id Software has also revealed a Collector's Edition that comes with a 12in statue of the Revenant demon and costs a £99.99.
There's a new trailer too, showing off a ton of new footage from the bloody and brutal campaign, that takes the series back to its fast and furious roots. There's a glimpse of just about every iconic enemy type and both the game's Mars and Hell-based environments.
EA has released its annual Super Bowl prediction video, which has used the new Madden NFL 16 video game to predict who is to win the big championship game. This year, Super Bowl 50 sees the Carolina Panthers take on the Denver Broncos in what is sure to be one of the year's most-watched sporting events in the world.
Highlights of the match are presented in the gameplay video, depicting an incredibly dramatic game that sees the Panthers lead 17-0 at half-time before a 20-point surge from the Broncos sees them pull ahead until the final minute, at which point the Panthers score the game-winning touchdown to win 24-20.
