New madden 08 video.
...that can make those players look like they are NOT running with sticks up their butt again this year.
Go with 2K8 I think that game's running at 60 fps also?.
That music's got my blood boiling; I can't wait to smash some skulls w/ Mr. Madden.
I wonder what the soundtrack for the game is going to be like..Playing Madden witha good soundtrack always gets my blood pumping!
normal flow of news coming through this site its refreshing when the news isn't forced.
I really want this game to be good. I would love to have a decent NFL game to play with real NFL teams. I am hopeful, but with EA's disappointments time after time it may not be realistic to expect too much from this.
Come on EA....quit slacking and make a good game for once. Just because you have the exclusive NFL license doesn't mean you have to cut corners every year just to make a buck. Just think of how much more profit you could make if the game was actually good!!
Please don't disappoint us again with another poor release.
Madden 08 at 60 FPS is going to kick @ss on one of the consoles.
Yes, but it is just too bad that EA is almost as unreliable as the suckbox360. They haven't stooped quite that low yet. Maybe they can pull their head out of their a@@es next year and learn how to write code for the PS3. Pure laziness on EA's part, but I guess that is to be expected from a company that just tries to rush things every year. Just because the game will run at 60fps on the 360 doesn't mean it will be a good game. It will take more than that to convince me.
All of the movie clips that they show are running on 360 hardware. where are the ps3s ??
You sound upset,and I hate to see PS3 zombies cry when they get spanked...........like you just did.
Not upset at all. Just making a valid point. How about explaining how you consider that a spanking. You think that 60fps alone makes a game kick a@@?? At least I will have the option of playing at 30fps if I choose to do so rather than worrying about how long I have until I send my box in for repair again. But then again I won't be wasting my money until I see some valid reviews first anyway. If EA fails again they won't get my money...simple as that.
And i'm just concerned about others :)
you can better than that repair insult,can't you Sonykid?
Mine has never given me an issue,and that's what matters,hence squashing your weakling choice of words in our pointless debate.
Your options are simple.Own a ps3,play 30 FPS.
E.A. doesn't need your money once a huge chunk of the 11 million
360 user base buys 08 madden for the 360.Your a riot son!
You have been spanked & pwned.
spanked and pwned?? very funny indeed..haha. Sonykid? that is even funnier. What are you 15 maybe 16? lol. If not it sure sounds like it. And when did I say that EA "needed" my money? I just said they won't be getting it if they fail my expectations again. I am smart enough to realize that EA isn't going to fail if I don't buy their game. I just wish they would stop rushing it every year. It never seems to change much...not worth a $60 pricetag anyway. Roster updates is pretty much the majority of change.
The truth is that I really don't have anything against the Xbox except the reliablity issues. Which just because you claim to have never had a problem doesn't mean that there isn't one. With the console as a whole anyway, not necessarily yours in particular. But the odds are against you. :)
Reliability was my main deciding factor when choosing the PS3. If MS could actually find a way to fix the systems rather than putting a bandaid on the problem by giving a 3 year warranty I might actually buy one as well. Let's just hope this happens because I would like to own one someday if I knew that I wasn't buying a ticking timebomb. There are undeniable advantages to owning both systems. Maybe someday I will comfortably be able to make that choice.
Oh my..I have been pwned. What am I to do...still laughing.
I had to sell my first 360...I just needed the money :) Now I have a new one :)
ps EA just need to learn how to make ps3 games run better thats all
Branch Annimation. Guy must of said it 16 times in one segment.
My prediction of the result of the oh so touted branch annimation...Same old sht different $60.
I will give it a go though as in the demo. I will decide after maddens release which of the 3 football games to get. If NCAA is any indication though its probably not going to be an EA game. Its sad when next gen football makes you pine for the days of last gen football. I hope Peter Moore can help EA sports get their mojo back.
please, just try something new already. Sure, Madden improves by small margins every year, but just like the Live series, but lately these improvements are usually GIMMICKS that don't make it past the next one or two games. How long did Live's Freestyle control last? Does ANYONE like the "vision cone"?
Weapons are a huge, LEGIT, sensible improvement, and there's a form of them in APF as well, so I expect that to stay, and would like them to, unless they prove unbalanced and poorly implemented...like the plethora of others we've faced through the years.
Anyway, these improvements show progress, but fundamentally, this game is still Madden '01. It appears that these guys have been using the same bloody engine for SEVEN YEARS now. Try something new already!
As much as I DESPISE the sport of baseball, I absolutely must applaud 2K for completely re-writing their engine for their '07 game. Didn't get perfect tens, but it's obvious that these folks mean business, and it shows that they're on a mission to produce a quality franchise. The folks at Tiburon must be a bunch of stubborn bulls, because this looks like the same game I was playing 6 or 7 years ago on PS2.
If their engine was good it would be one thing, but Madden SEVERELY lacks atmosphere, excitement, and it just feels entirely too mechanical, as if you're GOVERNED BY RANDOMNESS. Someone needs to light a fire under their butts, because for some reason, these people just aren't seeing it.
Observe our situation.
We've got a pair of machines with horsepower equivalent to that of supercars, that can handle realistic physics, A.I., monumental environments, high resolution textures, HDR Lighting, and an endless amount of effects simultaneously, and yet we have sports games like Madden...just churning out the filth for the masses.
I'm sorry, but there's NO EXCUSE for us having games like Lair and Mass Effect on the horizon with their expansive environments and breathtaking visuals, and we can't even get a sports title with a little bit of heart and elbow grease. No reason at all. EA needs to put their money where their mouth is and deliver.
I apologize for the rant, but I'm sick and tired of the status of sports and fighting games these days. They could and should be so much better, it disgusts me as much as the developers who half-ass a Wii title under the pretense that it has the same muscle as a Gamecube. Bullcrap.
Well this game already looks as lame as the last few years. Wake up EA. Where are the freaking ref's? Who is going to throw a flag when there is a penalty? what about the nets behind the goals? Why do all the fans still move at the same time in the same motion? Why do the players still look stiff? What the heck EA? I was a long time madden fan from back on the old 16 bit sega. But for the last 6 or 7 years Ea has lost it man. Then they cut out the competition and completely fall short. LAME!
