The story is too old to be commented.

i dont care about licensed ea sports products like footballs, he just needs to start making better sports games, he can start by making ps3 versions run at 60fps

that Playstation 3 development still isn't going smoothly because developers aren't as familiar with the hardware. Next year, both titles will have 60 frames, guaranteed.

That's an excuse for EA Sports to use. What's more confusing is FIFA 08's frame rate for the PS3 is (supposedly) 60fps, the same as the 360. Makes no sense.

The Madden 08 team are simply lazy or else they would've done the same as FIFA 08. IMO, FIFA 08 looks much better than FIFA 07 where as Madden 08 looks slightly better than its predecessor. I could be imagining it but maybe someone can agree with me or not.

Getting into the infrastructure of football to service athletes, management and fans is a pretty great idea. I give him 4+ years to implement it. =)

I'd like to see some better art direction and lighting in Madden though. It still feels a bit flat and it doesn't really play to the drama of the game.

If making Madden 08 for PS3 at 60 fps would have caused the title to get delayed, (like so many other PS3 ports) would you still feel that way? Keep in mind Madden's got to be at the store day and date for both platforms, or you risk hurting the user base further aka a timed exclusive).

Fighter4093d ago (Edited 4093d ago )

Everyone was aware that Madden would be 30fps on the PS3 way before the game was released and it also had less sales because of that issue. I also like the way EA promoted Madden 08 by showing off the 360 version to the public, celebs and the entire media, that's clear bias right there. It was as if the PS3 version never existed.

BTW, if they delayed Madden 08 to fix the frame rate issue then I wouldn't mind and I'm sure other PS3 fans wouldn't mind, as long as the delay was only a few weeks rather than months. This issue was big news, it was talked about by everyone and it hurt EA's reputation big time.
