Madden 2008 - August 14, 2007 - You picking it up?

I noticed we didn't have a thread for Madden.

Who's picking it up? Looks like the worked a lot on gameplay this year. I'll be there first day for this one.

From what i've seen, looks like i'll be buying it after sitting out the last 2 years.

Looks like game play is improved, and all the features in the next-gen versions are complete. I'll probably buy the 360 version.

Yes and I'm pretty sure that I'll be picking it up for my PS3 rather than my Wii

I'm one of those guys who'd buy this each year just for the roster updates -- so yes.

Enhanced gameplay and the fact that my Ravens probably will be one of the top rated teams in the game make this a no-brainer.

(360)

If it's anything like NCAA '08 as far as gameplay it'll be hot. If it's anything like Madden '07 it'll suck. I reserved a copy.

Yep. Just got a $50 GC for Best Buy yesterday, and that's what I'll use it for.

360 for me. Apparently if you are a member of Blockbuster.com they are sending out $10 coupons...although, I have yet to get mine.

I've never cared for the Madden gameplay vs. the 2K series (play it occasionally at other people's houses) and haven't bought a football game since Madden got the exclusive.

I went back and forth on All Pro but decided that not having the rosters would detract from most of the experience so opted out.

Now that I'm getting a 360, I'm considering Madden for the first time since the reviews indicate some positive changes. I miss having a solid football game and the season is about to get underway so I'll have a hard time not jumping in. I haven't fully decided whether it will be in my "launch package" when I get the 360 in a few weeks as there are a lot of other nice titles coming down the line.

Not having online franchises is BS, IMO. Honestly, how difficult could that be to implement? Maybe it's hard to coordinate everything with 32 players, ok, start with TWO! Franchise mode is where I spend 99% of my time in games, and not being able to play it online shortens the time I'll spend with the game significantly.
