2004 NCAA football...anyone getting?

I love the NCAA football games (and the Madden, too, of course). Is anyone getting this? Anyone know if it's supposed to be that much better than last years?

I'll probably just stick with 2003, and maybe pick up Madden 2004.

I didn't pick up 2003, so I'll pick it up....but not for $50. If I have to, I'll wait a while.

I was thinking of just picking up Madden, but I have some credit at the local store. Why not, right?

It's hands down the best football game out there. Of course I'll be getting it... and the full rosters too.

I'll be all over it. I play the NCAA series more often than Madden by far. IMO it's always the better of the two.

I'll be getting it, definitely. But due to a rather large exam the 29th-31st of this month, I'm not touching it until August 1. The horror!

I'm picking it up. It's my favorite football game. I don't know if I'm going to bother picking up Madden this year or not though. I hardly play it compared to NCAA.

I played 2003 for 6 straight months. Will probably be doing the same with this one.

I preordered it for PS2. Just picked up the Network Adapter the other day, so I'm set for the 15th.

I can't wait for this one.

BTW... CC is offering a free $10 gift card with this game next week. Sweet deal.

I wonder if they are going to add any more Div. 1-AA teams. I love the game but the usual African American Colleges and the Ivy League Schools don't add much variety. Are there any other new advancements?

I believe there are 20 more D1-AA teams. IGN had a good preview detailing all the improvements, of which there are many.

NCAA I will definitely be picking up. Over the last few years the NCAA games have become the football game I play the most, even more than Madden or the NFL2K series. I love the depth, the gameplay, plus Online play this year!

I pre-ordered it. Since this version has online play, I may pass on Madden this year.

I'll be on vacation next week, but I think I can handle waiting a few days.

So, the consensus is that the 2003 version isn't worth getting?

Not while the 2004 version is coming out... although if you both

1) had to play college football and
2) had to save $30

then I'd suggest the 2003 version.

NCAA is the only game I've ever played consistently 9 or more months after it comes out. i enjoy it more than Madden simply because so many teams run such varied offenses. Playing as Florida is just an entirely different experience than playing as Nebraska, for example. You don't get that kind of variance between the teams in Madden.
