The first report on the performance of Madden 08's online play and it sounds painfully familiar to how NCAA Football 08 turned out online.
Im having second thoughts about this :(
ps3 hater are putting this crap up
2k football plays smooth online dont listen 2 the hate
Ok, A: they talk about issues with LIVE, not the PS3 specifically. And B: this is about Madden, not 2K's game. So, I think you're wrong on both points there . . .
I never played madden, probably never will..
Even though its talking about LIVE, what if they use the same online code and it affects both?
not necessarily. we'll have to wait and see i guess, some of those issues however wouldn't have anything to do with the network its on. except of course lag.
well thats always been an issue with me and madden online. although ive only played via the ps2, going on 3 years now. I'm not sure what the lag they are talking about, is it like horrible lag where the players jump and you can't do move for a good second? I'v always hated the the miniscule micro second in between when I push the button and the player executes the move. I mean its not horrible lag and by all means its very playable, but its the whole the guy in not doing what i want him to the exact moment i press the button. I play a lot with friends offline, and i get used to the timing playing that way. I jump online and everying is off by 1/4 of a second and it drives me nuts. I play secondary and pressing the triangle at the right moment is critical, so i dunno, hope its not horrible lag, but i hope they fix that damn timing issue. Oh yeah, and playing online always messes up my timing offline, im always jumping too early, god its frustrating.
still might get it...
I still might get it as well, but that 7 sec to pick your play thing is kinda whack, should be like 10-15sec or something.
Ok if this guy had the final build game then I would panic...but he even says it isn't. So until someone pulls the game out of a box, puts it in the console and says...OMG its bugged...I ain't gonna worry.
EA, I can't believe they don't care enough to ever get the online play to work well. I am an avid Tiger Woods player and that game is horrible online. The worst thing is you don't want to hold your breath for a patch because you will be dead before EA knows there is a problem. It's a shame that they don't even care for the juggernaut that is Madden football. I hope it's not true, But they are guilty till proven innocent in my book.
run @ 60fps....lol
I call a fumble. ;/
have these problems if they would use MS Servers instead of they're own atleast on the lag side of things
really i find that this was things i all ready knew .madden sucks hardcore on the next gen fasho and now that 2k8 came with the real football you cats can really see just how much they really do .heres an test .who ever gets the game madden i assume most already have 2k8 ,lets just see how much e.a. left out there next gen football.when compared it seems like they forgot everything but the people on the field .for 60 bucks you e.a. nutt huggers are getting an unfinished game with an roster update lol lolol how wack .ohhh yeah they touched up the control,... lame
get the wii ver it alot better
people are going to attack me
The press will STILL hype this game and it will STILL sell millions regardless of what is wrong with it.
Please don't take away a bubble for me asking this but I have to know? The last Madden I played was 2002! How come every new Madden game comes out 1-2 month later it drops from $49.99 like $23.99 or lower? Does that mean the game stinks, I would think it would by the drastic price drop!
my friend thats what exactly that means the game sucks
