Played a bit of the demo. Gus Johnson is awesome.

Can't say I understand why the crowd volume constantly drops to nothing, save for one random jackass in the crowd shouting something stupid.

Oh and the Doritos Play of the Game in my first game was me taking a knee to run out the clock.

I've bought the last two Madden games (2009 and 2010) on the PSP and I love it! It's amazing how much detail is put into the game.

I think the Doritos Play of the Game is always the last play of the game. Hopefully that's fixed in the game.

The Gameflow seems ok.....it basically dumbs down the game in my opinion. Although, I tried choosing my play and the gameclock seem to go fast on me.
There was an option in 2009 that was called "clock runoff" or something like that. What it does is automatically kill 15 seconds on the clock when you pick a play. I guess it's too simulate a real huddle even if you pick your play really quickly.

There is a game option to turn it off. My friend and I always did because we felt it killed too much clock.

That celebration video was pretty cool.

I am going to pre-order on Amazon right now.

NCAA was the same way. I believe it needs to save highlights to the HDD, and for the demo they did not do that.

Also, apparently they will offer the old way to pick hot routes and adjust the defense (not via the D-pad) as a patch/update.

I havent bought Madden since 07 I think, it was getting pretty stale. Played this demo, and I like the new playcalling, it'll be fun putting together game-plans. I also liked the D-pad thing, less controls to remember.

I read a preview that said unfortunately the online leagues/franchizes is the same as last year, but didn't describe them, are they a letdown?

If the crowd noise is like this in the retail game, I'll not be keeping it.

Before kickoff, for example, the crowd noise is at zero. As if there's not a soul in the stadium. Then between plays the crowd noise slowly decreases to zero, again as if you're playing on a practice field. It's REALLY jarring.

I never cared for crowd noise, so it wouldn't bother me.

Normally you can adjust crowd noise.

I know my complaint is pretty petty, but come on. Obama sometimes appears on television, have you cancelled your cable? Playing Madden isn't supporting the President,

Okay first, that's odd. Second, just don't watch the 15 second cut scene *if* you ever win the Super Bowl. I mean, Michael Vick is in the game, and he's actually a criminal. Politics aside, I can't imagine taking that hardcore of a stance over a digital replica of President Obama...

Oh this is too funny. At least tell me Obama raped you or something to warrant such a reactionary political statement about a VIDEO GAME.

I wasn't upset or anything I just thought it was a really strong reaction to something so innocuous

I bumped the "Madden Arcade" thread, but also figured I would mention it here too.

Best Buy is giving vouchers for Madden Arcade for free if you pre-order Madden. So I pre-ordered it and have been playing it. It's a fun game, but there is not one person playing this game online. Does anyone have this for PS3 that would be willing to play a few games so I can get the roster update and try to get the online trophies?

I dont think so. Online it says it will email you the code. I just pre-ordered instore and got the pre-order box. I'm not sure if Im gonna buy Madden 11 or not though. If I do I might jsut get it from Amazon bc of their pre-order special.

Hell, Madden Arcade (PS3) is on sale for $7.49 this week, so Amazon wins out again here.

Or are you trying to get the game code and cancel the pre-order?
