2K Sports sends over some new details for the upcoming All-Pro Football 2K8 for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. 2K Sports will be bringing back the greatest players in football history including John Elway, Thurman Thomas, Jerry Rice and much more.
Sweet, John Elway!
I will finally be able to pick up a football game since NFL 2K5.
and get on with playing next-gen football. Time to re-create Barry Sander's 2000yd season. Maybe I'll bring back the Hogs from the Redskins' glory years to block for him. hmmmmmmm.. Many, many interesting possibilities! I can't wait!
We shall see, I sure hope its good because I am sick and tired of EA controlling the football gaming world but I just do not see this game denting Madden at all, sadly.
MADDEN IS ABOUT TO DIE A SLOW HORRIBLE DEATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I like madden and 2k madden 05 was better the n2k5 at least to me...2k was a good game until about 03 when madden got good...Yet madden is going stale again its next gen sucks...So this year i will be getting two football games
remember you should view this as a step in the right direction. Once the license deal is done with EA, they will be ready do will and deal with real football and players again. I heard that deal can be broken at anytime.
Anyhow I haven't played a football games since 2K5, and I've been playing the series since Dreamcast. Never liked Madden and probably never will. The developers will be able to see where they stand with their fanbase and take it from there.
What Lacarious said!
Madden is dead!,bow down to your new king of all football games!!!!!
This is the best news I have read in a very long time!!
Me and my boys all hate Madden and still perfer to play 2k5 that piece of garbage called Madden.
All I wanna know is if my boy Dan Marino is game for 2k!!!
if Walter Payton is not in this game. PASSS
But I don't see EA just lying down and doing nothing.
Having the All-Time greats will be nice but it's not going to touch Madden until they get the license to the current players. Hopefully they make a good game because competition is needed in this genre.
"but it's not going to touch Madden until they get the license to the current players"
Just a tiny FYI for ya... 2K ballers care about gameplay\presentation\look and feel. We can careless about the BS hype that you are speaking of.
2K will not only touch madden... it will str8 bowl it over with far superior gameplay.
2K is BACK!
I haven't had a good Football fix in a couple years. I refuse to buy Madden.
my QBs: marino & unitas my RBs: sanders, sayers, payton, billy sims, & ottis anderson. lots of ny giants for my defense. too bad l.t. was in the stupid blitz game or they probably would have had him too. can't wait for august 15th.
I can go to sleep tonight with tears confine the sweet taste of joy. I can go to sleep knowing that a better football game than Madden is on it's way. I've purchased Madden 06'and 07' with shame in my heart knowing that the 2K series was and is better. Now, if they can show me that they still have it, I will give up current rosters for better gameplay and design. Any good gamer and football fan should and will do the same. People of the world, unite and rejoice in the name of 2K sports. Now I know God is real because many prayers were answered today.
Should I pay $60 to play a half a$$ football game called Madden with current rosters? Or should I pay $60 to play as one of the greatest QB's to every play the game(Joe Montana)? Tough decision........not. It will be awesome to recreate the 80's 49ers teams.
maybe maybe not. But some people think Madden is the only source for football. Competition is always a good thing either way.
I am not a big fan of Madden football. Haven't been since the PS1. NFL 2k series IMO is the best football experience to date and I am glad that 2K Sports is back on the football path. I can't wait to re-create my team of the decade the 49ers with their greats from the 80's. See ya guys on the gridiron!
