Do you play online? PS3 or 360? I'll probably pick it up tonight, too.

PS2. Still stuck in the Stone Age. One of these days I'll upgrade but I just haven't felt the need to.

<--- Plain Xbox . . . I don't see the reason to get a 360 or PS3 until I get HD.

We have a 360 but find ourselves playing the PS2 and xbox more. Both are modded tho. Can't bring myself to risk bricking the 360 yet.

What does everyone think? I didn't buy last years because of bad reviews. So if you've skipped a year, is this year worth it?

i dont like my xbox360, im lookin to sell it and just buyin it for ps2 or possibly buying a ps3 in a few months with 2008.

I loved ncaa 2007 on ps2, but just didnt like it on xbox360.

Anything new about it? I downloaded the demo and ah the graphics are better but the gameplay felt the same except a few new features.

I bought the 360 version last year and was disappointed in the lack of extra features on the game. It was obvious they rushed that game out.

This year's version has everything on it.

The gameplay is alot smoother and the animations aren't goofy anymore.

However, the new recruiting stuff is pretty ghey and you'll have to spend half your time doing that instead of simply choosing a pitch that works and sticking to it.

Other than that, its pretty much the same 'ole game just with this years' players.

Yeah, both Madden and NCAA were lacking last year. This one seems a little better, at least more smooth on both the ps3 and 360 versions.

PS2 version is pretty solid. Not too many changes from last year, but enough to make a difference:

-Slightly better graphics. Not too noticable over 2007, but it's a bit crisper
-Updated stadiums. I only played one game but Gozillatron is shown at DKR.
-New good/bad player indicators for pre-snap offense and defense. I don't really like this because it only shows the RB/TE/WR on offense and DB on defense.
-Shrine where you can view best games you've played, your personal records, snapshots from games, etc. Pretty cool.
-Some feature where if you're rolling out as a QB, you can control your nearest receiver with the R analog stick. Haven't tried it but seems like a decent idea if it works.

I'm sure there are more differences I'll see once I get into my dynasty, but all I had time for was one regular game. The game was very realistic though: UT-48, A&M-3.

I am liking the game, It is the same every year with a few tweaks, I like the fact that you dont have to re-learn everything. There are a few cool new features, and the graphics are somewhat better.

I bought the game last wednesday. I couldn't get all 5 start in the preseason training therefore I couldnt get a offer toplay at UT. I settled for Tech. I am happy with game play and that you can control recievers. I think its the best by far. The BCS ratings are really biased in Legend mode but I am still in my first year and Tech was unrated whe I started now I am #8 after beating UT last night.
