EA tech responds to "Madden's Raiders" about the inferior version of Madden '08 on the PS3

The following is a response to a query a member of N4G (Madden's Raiders) sent to EA yesterday. The response was quick and polite and surprisingly honest.

Hello Scott,

Thank you for your feedback regarding the issues you've found with Madden NFL 08 for the PlayStation 3 game console. While we fully understand your frustration with the limitations the technology has placed against the video frames per second of the game play on the PlayStation 3 game console, it was out intent to put out the best possible with Madden across 10 platforms. While it is very simple to draw a conclusion based on the end-user experience with the game technology, what most people do not realize is hours of research which goes into fully understanding the hardware demands for each console. In the case of the next-generation consoles, many publishers have been developing titles for the Xbox 360 for over 3 1/2 years while everyone who publishes now for the PlayStation 3 with the exception of Sony has been developing for the PlayStation 3 for only a little over one full year. The differences in the overall knowledge of the hardware is vastly different for both consoles and, as is the case with newer technology, it is very difficult to get it right the first time. As for frame-rate differences, 30 frames per second is the same for all PS 3 football games this year, not just Madden but also NCAA Football, and 2K Sports' offering as well. If you choose not to purchase the game, it is a choice fully understand and respect. Please know that I have passed your feedback and observations on to the game team and hopefully someone within their team will be able to address this matter further.

Sincerely,

Rob M.
EASPORTS Sr. Technical Support (PS3)

The truth -
shall set you free. I don't feel as mad and bad as I did before I sent this. It's as I hypothesized and some of you as well, that the 360 version is essentially the lead platform with more time to develop for and the PS3 version will come into its own. Now I can breathe again. I'll keep you all updated on future responses from maybe Peter Moore himself. lol =]

cheers

How do other EA companies manage 60 fps on the PS3 but the Madden team couldn't?
Maddens Raiders  +   2521d ago
Thanks everyone -
I am not doing this for me, but for the entire PSNation and really gamers around the world. Like I said, my resentment toward EA has dropped a few notches since receiving this response and I have replied back to them for even more clarification and possibly an apology to the owners of all PS products for their seemingly, total lack of concern with the SNE brand as a whole; he even admits as much.

But, for the sheer honesty and prompt response to the query I think a reprieve might be in order until I get a response from them regarding official full disclosure, maybe on their website or a major publication. It's simply ludicrous for major news outlets like CNN and others to tout this game a true measure of the PS3's capabilities or any other of the SNE consoles.

Bottom line: They're leading people to think that something is wrong with the hardware (across the world!) and no one is saying anything about it. If EA does not address this issue in the public eye, then maybe yes, a boycott could be in order.

Ridiculous? You be the judge.

I think its great that you took the bull by the horns (your avatar made me say that) More people should question devs when they give half-assed or no answers. Bubble for you!
ItsDubC  +   2521d ago
Honestly, I think you're blowing this out of proportion. You're an avid Madden fan and of course it sucks to get an inferior version on your preferred console. But like the support rep said, the Cell is new technology and EA will have a better understanding of it for Madden '09. I'm confident that '09 will run at 60fps on the PS3 and that it would have even if you had never sent your complaint. There is always a price to pay for early adoption.

Perhaps for '10 or '11 the PS3 version of Madden will be the far superior version but until then, everyone will just have to wait for knowledge progression with respect to parallel programming.

Hatchetforce  +   2521d ago
@Maddens Raiders,

You ARE NOT blowing this out of proportion. When USA Today publishes a story about the PS3 getting shafted with their version of Madden, that alone justifies your actions. I do not play sports games but this type of ineptitude is systemic. It is nothing more than EA being cheap and not wanting to sink the proper resources.

Next year when the PS3 is running on top, EA will come limping back saying how they really have the system down pat now. Screw them. Infinity Ward is kicking ass on the PS3...so are numerous other developers. This crap from EA has no excuse.
bluebrad1974  +   2521d ago
This is fake.
How did you ever reach contributer status? Hell anyone on this site could have posted this. You gave EA as your source, wtf? Let me guess you copied and pasted an e-mail you sent to yourself. You Sony fanatics are ruining what this site is supposed to be. Between approving forom posts, fake news, and SPG propaganda I don't see how anyone knows wtf is going on in the gaming industry. What if all the Wii, and 360 fans starting pulling news out of their ass the way you Sony fans do. Here is a newsflash, Playstation 3 is officially the brand of whiners and crybabies.

Dude, Seriously BlueBrad1974
You need to also respect your elders. Maddens Raiders has been contributing to this site for a long time and while I don't agree with him most of the time. He isn't an annoying fanboy. He is just a PS3 defender and always has been. This story is not fake and I beg you to give a little more credit to maddens Raiders before lumping him in with the likes of the idiotic Sony fanboys around here.

Good job Maddens Raiders appreciate the EXCLUSIVE for N4G. Like I said we don't always agree but you usually don't say anything over the top so you're alright in my book, even if you do like that 30fps monster PS3
=P.

Had to get one in on ya. Thanks again for the story..

Shin_Akakage  +   2521d ago
hmm..I don't know if I buy this
It's pretty unrealistic for me or anyone here to think buy all of what this guy is saying. Specifically this line...

"many publishers have been developing titles for the Xbox 360 for over 3 1/2 years while everyone who publishes now for the PlayStation 3 with the exception of Sony has been developing for the PlayStation 3 for only a little over one full year".

Sorry I'm not buying that. It would be foolish for anyone here to think that PS3 titles have only been developed for a little over 1 year. It takes much more time then that to develop the game from the ground up. NBA Live was a Launch title for PS3 and if memory serves me correctly Madden was originally suppose to show up at PS3 launch..but was scrapped before launch to make a better game(plus madden 07 was garbage on x360 too). And then keeping with the fact that PS3 was originally suppose to launch 3-4 months behind X360...Spring 06...its doubtful that they only had a year of development time. The fact that NBA 2k Launched with PS3 and was on par with X360 version is proof enough of that.

I do concede though that devs do not know PS3's hardware as well as X360's simply because the type of processor used in 360 is similiar to what they have been working with already, the 360 has better tools and a more developer friendly environment. PS3's cell is more difficult and more importantly more costly to develop for.

Madden is EA's KEY franchise and I'm sure they did everything they could to release the BEST version of the game they could on PS3. So there has to be some problem they ran into during the development cycle that forced this game to run at 30fps. Next year they'll fix it unless its a hardware problem(doubtful).
InMyOpinion  +   2521d ago
Nice, if it's actually true.
What concerns me is that there were a lot of bad spelling in the letter.

How can I be sure you did'nt compose this letter yourself? There's no proper source, no proof. It is known that you were very upset from this issue, and also that you often respond in defense to people who don't show love for the PS3. Not calling you a fanboy, but you're definately on the Sony side of things. It just leaves me doubtful. Show me some proof that this mail is legit and I won't doubt you.

Also, it's quite hilarious that N4G now approves "news" that has no real source at all and in turn fail legitamite review posts like my own that got canned for no real reason a couple of hours ago. Not old, no duplicate. Real source, no editing faults.

"it was out intent to put out the best possible with Madden across 10 platforms." shouldn't it read "it was ouR intent"?
Crazyglues  +   2520d ago
Bubbles for you for sending that in to EA tech dept...
I feel your pain... I am very happy with the response and it seems like they handled it the best they could not having more time with the PS3 dev kit.

So I guess the next Madden will be just as Sweet on PS3. I wish more companies could just come out and keep it real, and say "hey where having problems with the PS3 version but we will get it right next time."

I can respect that and Buy the game now.

I thought this was pretty much understood already.
Its not like EA had a grudge against playstation or microsoft is paying EA money to keep PS3 version at 30fps.

If you believe that you must be retarded.
PS3 has been out for less time than the 360, its harder to develop for end of story.
Its not that the PS3 cant do 60fps its just going to dake devs a little longer to figure out how to write more effcient code for it.

Nobody picks up a guitar for the first time and starts jamming out. Do you expect Devs to figure everything out instantly? This goes for all consoles not just the PS3.

You fanboys need to grow up, its not a damn war or anything.
elitesupreme  +   2520d ago
ignorance is NOT bliss!
it is a sign of fear ^^. The very first X360 Madden 06 ran at only 30fps! Yet, all of you fanboys think that the PS3 Madden is the worst thing ever for being 30fps only? Get over it. Nobody whined about that fact because:

1- nobody noticed or knew any better
2- there wasn't a "better" version to compare it to.

So, anybody who chooses to use the 60fps vs 30fps as ammo against the PS3, is BLISSFULLY IGNORANT!!!

Lol, the most professionally written letter ever! :P But I'm glad that instead of saying, "the 360 is just way better technically than the PS3", they said they've spent more time on the 360's hardware and happen to know it very well while they are still learning to develop for the PS3. Nice letter Maddens..

No. I simply refuse to give into this refuse from EA. I want a complete version like the 360 owners are enjoying, even if it is a re-hash with better framerate. Why should I buy their leftovers. And believe me Smokey, it hurts me as well not to play this year, but I'm not going to go buy a whole new system just to play their game. And if that means waiting 'til next year, my patience is virtuous.

ah i understand you maddens. I still remember the all night tournaments sessions with madden, the 40 dollar games, the eddie george, culpepper, vick, faulk covers, the huge leap in game speed from 2002 to 2003, the giddyness of the hitstick in 2005. Man those ps2 years were amazing, and its getting off on the wrong foot in this era. But god dammit, i need football, I breathe eat and sleep football. I'll tell ya, theres nothing like being at the raiders game tailgate, with bbq going, a cooler full of beer, and playing madden on one 20" tv while watching the 10:00 games on another, stupid EA, at least i have my memories,

haha at the disagrees.. not sure what they are disgreeing with, i guess my opinion is not my opinion, or the fact that im probably still gonna get the game, or the questioning if you have the game or not, interesting.

Daishi  +   2520d ago
If the 360 version ran at 30 fps like it did the last 2 years would this be a big deal? Personaly I can't tell a difference unless running the PS3 version side by side with the 360. Also does it not make more since for an American system running an American made game to be looked at in a higher light by the American press? You need to look at the political implications and not just personal agenda. I have very little respect for EA and I personaly respect what you are doing, but you have to look at the not so obvious just as much as the obvious. Good luck and I would love to see if the little guys like us can make a difference. This could end up being a big deal for the entire gaming community if you bring about change!

I think you would've done better to hide your bias, as it detracts from your significance. Do you think EA thinks it's unacceptable that the Wii version got Editor's Gold? I could easily see that sentence being a laughing-stock at EA.

It comes down to sales...
NCAA Football 360: ~500,000 units
NCAA Football PS3: ~100,000 units

They knew the Xbox version would sell better so they probably put more development money into it. I hate to say it, but except for PS3 first party games and exclusives, the PS3 version is usually going to look worse compared to the Xbox version. The Xbox is easier to program for and the larger Xbox audience justifies putting more $$$ into Xbox development.

Only one version PS3 games aren't as good
Time for these third party developers to stop being lazy. It's well known by everyone now the way to develop these games is make the PS3 version and port to the 360. Instead they do it backwards. It isn't hard to port a PS3 game to the 360. If you make a 360 game though it's complicated to port to the PS3. Which is most likely the reason the PS3 version of Madden is 30 FPS instead of 60.
Ju  +   2521d ago
lazy devs
I'd just like to add a comment about the "lazy devs", which appears here and there. I doubt they are lazy devs. They do what they get told. And having a new product (PS3), a lower sales expectation and the pressure from the management (even though they will point to the "market") leads to inferior results. That's just it. Some do not want to spend the money, but I don't think it is because devs don't want to make a perfect game (or are lazy for that matter).
Somebody in product management has a roadmap to Madden 09 already. And not releasing 08 will have an impact on 09 (or other schedules), which will have a bigger audience anyway and better sell thru numbers.
Well, I personally would have said, release it later and make it worth it. EA is a bXtch, we all know that.

Good job Maddens.

Keep in mind what I said a few weeks ago about the removal of Peter Moore into EA, and EA individuals coming to M$. Fishy stuff is about to happen with allot of EA multi-platform games on the PS3. This will not be the first time it will happen either. It's called sabotage people. EA is beginning to feel allot of heat from Sony studios, and between EA, and M$, they will try EVERYTHING in their powers to prevent Sony to show them up.

Think of it as a conspiracy theory or whatever you like, but it is how it is, and I'm sure Sony is a very smart company and is highly aware of what these two companies are trying to do to them.

But those who cheat get nowhere in life, and when, and if they do get there, they fall very hard, and very quickly.

I knew all along there was something very fishy with all these moves between EA, and M$. These two companies resemble the Bush Administration......AAAHAHHAAA

Haha Madden was so flustered about it he took it out on the poor schmucks at EA.

Feel better now? Good.

I'm sorry for PS3 gamers getting a turd version of the premier football franchise in all gaming's history.

So hopefully PS3 owners will get better games, as dev's learn to program for the cell. Hopefully.

I still say buy a 360 if you want to enjoy games NOW.

<EDIT> I know the difference is minimal. But any difference at all is bad when its a negative for the much more expensive console that was touted as "the only next gen console".

The PS3 version should be at least up to par with the 360 version.

This is just bad news for Sony. People are going to learn about this, and they'll choose to buy a 360 to play Madden, rather than the PS3.

No matter how you look at it, it's bad news for PS3 owners.

Not hating. The PS3 version should be right where the 360 version is. But it isn't. Because of the CELL.

How many multiplats is it going to take before you guys realize that the 360 is way better at multiplats. ATM at least.

It isn't about learning to develop for Cell
This issue isn't about learning the PS3 hardware. It's about being lazy or more interested in making fast money. Make the game on the 360 and make a sloppy PS3 port. But if they want to port the games it has been mentioned you should port from the PS3 to the 360. Maybe one day these companies will figure that out.

Thank you Maddens Raiders
I understand your frustration. I myself am a fan of American football and I appreciate a solid NFL football game. Its the reason why I still play NFL2K5 on my PS2 to this day. I find the answer by EA to be quick and honest. He is right in that there is just more development knowledge on the 360 right now. Will it ever equalize? Maybe ... as developers expose the hardware more. Will it ever transcend the 360 ... maybe if the 360 hardware is tapped to its limits.

"Will it ever transcend the 360 ... maybe if the 360 hardware is tapped to its limits. " or maybe not. You will have to wait 1 more year to see if you are right....

"please please Mr. EA tech support guy, please tell me my system is good."

Sony's system was originally delayed because of Blu-ray diode issues but the devkits were out right around the same time the 360's were so I'm not buying it.

Is the PS Nation really this insecure and cry babies about everything? I love my PS3 and I don't need some freakin convincing that the system is good or the reason why all companies multiplatform games work better on the 360. How about you just grow up, suck it up and buy a 360 having both systems you don't have to ride on either consoles jock. Maddens blind devotion to a freakin TOY is sad really.

the truth is madden raiders is to get a 360.then you will have the best of both worlds.i mean the best madden 08 game,then you have the best console to play it on.can,t your little ps3 handle the framerate then.oh dear what a waste of money you have spent.developers no the ps3 is a pain in the backside to develop for.that is why stuntman has been canned and all those games getting push back.look at ghost recon 2 isn,t even out yet for the ps3.why us xbox owners have been playing it for months now.dirt is another one thats been push back.i rest my case madden raiders.what you need is a 360 then you can play the best version of madden.then you want be moaning about the craP FRAMRATE the ps3 has to offer.

I'm just speechless.
People are actually writing EA about the PS3 version of this game? You guys need to get out more.

And then to associate your "fight for the PS3" with the demomstration at Tiananmen square by posting this article with that picture is classic.

OMG! The picture puts nerd icing on the cake!! Dude, what little respect I had for this guy just went into the toilet.. How freakin embarassing..

I don't buy that BS about them not knowing the PS3's technology! Maybe if they quit trying to rush out a new Madden on time every damn year, they could actually make one that looks and feels "Next Gen". And that goes for the 360 version as well, because they both look like they could be done on PS2 and Xbox.

Give it up for whole sections of crowds standing up and sitting down in unison!

Give it up for no postgame or half-time show!

Give it up for no HDD caching of highlights.

EA is a joke!

I find this whole issue
rather funny....it's like saying my car is slow because YOU can't get it over 30 mph.

LOL @ Madden's Raiders
You've just embarrassed yourself (further), not only in front of the internet community, but the staff at EA Sports. You submitted a completely immature, unprofessional, fanboyish rant...filled with horrible grammar...and got back a very polite, succinct, and logical reply from one of the most hated Devs on the planet. Good job, dude....keep doing the SONY fanatics proud with your ignorance. :o

better than ..
b*tching about it on N4G.com ... eh? He wrote it like a pissed off consumer. That's it. I'd do the same.
MyNutsYourChin  +   2521d ago
I agree with CNIVEK and disagree with sajj316. Madden's Raiders just proved to EA that he's a total douchebag, someone to laugh at, and not take seriously. If I were the rep at EA who received this I would reply the same way except I'd be lying through my teeth with the statement, "Please know that I have passed your feedback and observations on to the game team and hopefully someone within their team will be able to address this matter further."
CNIVEK  +   2521d ago
No, sajj316
..what he wrote, reeked of a 13 y.o. fanboy whining. I hate to tell you this, but 13 year olds are not largely considered a part of the "consumer" market. :o

well ...
This 13 year old fanboy is getting all the comments now isn't he. The point is to generate a reaction. Whatever the message is as long as the end result is positive. I guess his choice of words is as mature as Peter Moore with a GTIV tatoo?

As long as this generates dialogue, he's done his job as a concerned consumer. Many roads to the same destination. If he wasn't taken seriously, any tech support person would have taken his commments and replied with a "We're looking into it".

Call it what you want but Madden is EA, and EA makes a ton of other titles and if they can't seem to figure out the PS3 than alot of people at EA may be seeing the unemployment line in a couple years. The fact is EA needs he Playstation, and XBOX to strive to pay for better games, new games, and help pay those people at EA salaries I remember a couple years back when EA didn't make any games for the XBOX, so how did they bring in all there money? Nintendo? No it was Playstation. After reading there response to Madden Raiders, EA and M$ CEO swappings, and this piece of crap game I paid $60 for I will not buy another EA game this year like alot of PS owners and than they can tell ppl like they've been tell people that there profit is down because of lack of PS game sales. In another year there license agreement with the NFL is up so let's just hope the NFL is smart enough to allow 2k to get in on the action.

GTFO of here with your bullsh1t, son. EA's been making games for the XBOX brand since it launched in 2001...hardly "a couple years ago"....and for MS's PC market since LOOOOOONG before Sony showed up in gaming. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT, KIDDO. :o
