Yeah, add me and we'll play tonight.

I have NCAA as well, for some reason Madden runs a lot smoother. I like it more than I thought I would overall.

Madden on PS3 is no where near as smooth as it is on the 360. Kind of annoying, because Sony boasts the equipment available to be impressive, but they've only got like 3-4 games that are 1080p? What's up with that? It's also only shot in 30fps, instead of 60fps on 360.

The PS3 version does have co-op.

Ryan you are right..only thing they changed this year was the addition of "player attribute icons" so you will know who is your star players n such..they didnt even give ROMO an icon..

but i will say the best football game ever is ESPN NFL 2K5 on xbox..the replays just like sportscenter..the graphics..realistic gameplay..i wish i still had my copy..might have to slide over to game stop and pick one up..

Seems as usual with EA and the Madden series, plenty of glitches are popping up. This guy has some funny bitching especially about the cheese. But I do agree they are valid complaints about EA basically putting out beta's as final games...

Not true at all!

The gameplay is 15x better! The players aren't so sluggish when responding to your commands and you don't have to be so deliberate and commited anymore. I think it's wayyyyyyyyyyy better.

I dont give a shit about the rosters being up to date since after 3-4 years into a dynasty or superstar mode your rosters are no longer accurate anyway.

if the game is worth the upgrade ill pick it up before 09 comes out

Yep. Gameplay is much more fluid, even in comparison to NCAA '08, which normally they're about the same..

Got it last night for ps3, and it is pretty smooth playing. I love the hits. AI has improved. Only thing was when I whooped up on the Giants in season mode, the camera started to do a 360 view of the stadium and just stayed like that. I couldn't push any button or anything. It didn't freeze, it just stayed on the doing the 360 deg w/camera. Anyways, I'm gonna be playing again tonight, this time will be online. Finally got cple of ps3 games. Got tired of playing MK2 online. Gonna be on about 9ish tonight. Let me know who wants an asswhooping.

I got in on tuesday but haven't had much time to play it. It runs very smooth, the players are much more responsive like mentioned since you can do pretty nice cuts and quick change in direction. The gang tackles are pretty awesome too. I've been playing the superstar mode only though, with Calvin Johnson, it's cool you can play as any of this year's rookies.

The reason for this as I'm told is that it was in creation since the last madden which was a terrible copy from 360 tp ps3 with minimum features. Again this year, it was made for 360 and ported to ps3. It wont be until 2009 I'm told that it will be made from the ground up for the ps3.

I am more of a fan of ps3 than 360, but we had the two at best buy side by side and I thought the 360 version was better. I went and bought a 360 just for this reason. lol

Sorry, I forgot to respond the other day. Mine played online just fine with the Wii. It wasn't laggy or anything.

You're definitely the only board member who plays Madden '08 on the Wii and probably the only chick in the universe...

Also..when you say glitches - what do you mean? Lagging? Slow? Or what?

Big lagtime when playing online (I also drop my connection a lot which ends the game. ugh!) and last night it completely freaked out on me.

I had to go in and erase my saved profile before the game would even play correctly. I thought it was the disk...but this morning I cleared out everyhthing and its working fine now.

I'm just gonna play Barnyard from now on. LOL

Don't forget the PS3 Madden runs at a whopping 30FPS, vs the 360's 60 FPS....

Not permanent, they've been working on online system for awhile, but it keeps getting pushed back. It's free right now, because you'd be out of your mind to pay for it the way it is now..

This was mentioned above as well, but the Madden game was built with the 360 in mind this year, even still the game isnt as smooth on the 360 as it is on the ps3 (from what I have seen anyway)

These are the demands and sayings of Duncan.

I beg to differ..I've got a ps3 and 360 elite and it looks MUCH better on the 360, much smoother.

Werd! Thats because the 360 is getting privilege over the PS3.
ESPN games on 360 run 60fps
ESPN games on PS3 run 30fps
ESPN 360> ESPN PS3
To me the PS3 is a bottle necked system. Tons of possible processing power, but not so great video card.

you get what you pay for. Like the saying goes. PS3 free online play cant even compare to Xbox Live. Xbox Live is 50 bucks a year, that is cheap for reliable, easy online play. Again though, Xbox live has been around long before the PS3 online play era.
