I've got a ps3 and the only way I get competition is when I play online! if any one has a ps3 lemme kno and we'll hook it up! jus kno I'm always oakland and rarely lose.

I can't wait for the new game to come out! I jus hope they improve the franchise even more adding things like you getting to choose the prices you charge for tickets etc like they had in 06. Though gotta say I am loving the new superstar status they added and the gamer rings too. i just achieved my 5th ring in January!

Has anyone bought the Madden 10' yet?... if so leave me note of what you thought about it and if it's worth the cash.


Very worth the money...much better than 09...and 09 was the best title in franchise history.

Roster updates are phnomenal...Vick was on philly's roster within 2 hours of the announcement.

Go ahead, drop the $60 on it...I did for 360 and its worth it!!!

Could not agree with you more Virginia Raider. I love the improvements to the game. The running game seems way more fluid and playing the d-line is much easier without the bullshit swim moves. This is BY FAR the best Madden of all time. In term of overall feel, look, and playability. None are even close.

The game overall has some nice improvements from last years version.   THE TURNOVERS ARE BULLSHIT.  TOO MANY FUMBLES AND WAY TOO MANY INTERCEPTIONS.   THIS IS A SOURCE OF FRUSTRATION EVERY YEAR.   THEY WONT IMPROVE IT BECAUSE THEY DONT HAVE TOO.   If you want NFL football you will buy it and they know it.  They dont have to improve a fucking thing because they are the only cocksuckers who get to make the game.    If you are looking forward to running with McFadden then you will be upset.  The computer makes him fumble a hell of alot.     Overall still a good game besides that.  The fight for the fumble is bullshit as well.  If any one is up for a game on 360 my Gamer tag is OAKLANDRAIDER77.  Send me a friend request,  I would love to talk some Raiders football.

Title: MADDEN 11!!! DUMB THE PLAYBOOK
Post by: RaiderWildeStyle on April 28, 2010, 11:29:15 AM
Here's a cool article i read on the new madden gameplay... could be fun?

Quote
Hands-on: Is Madden 11 taking the coaching out of football?


When you play Madden, do you feel more like the coach or the quarterback?
(Credit: EA)

Is Madden about being an armchair coach or an armchair quarterback? I admit, when I play Madden as the Jets, I increasingly avoid calling plays. I default to the "Madden picks" because I'm lazy, and I want to dive right into the plays. I'm more interested in how a team matches up against another than how my virtual coaching skills are.

A funny thing happened when I sat down to play a little of EA's upcoming release of Madden 11 at a pre-NFL draft event. While this year's iteration doesn't seem to have changed a whole lot in terms of basic gameplay, the play calling shows a major philosophy shift. A default setting called "Gameflow" aims to eliminate play calling by auto-selecting a play for every down, based on a team's actual playbook and play-calling tendencies.

While this sounds like a dumbing down of Madden, the focus seems to be on recreating the QB's perspective. Plugging in a headset will put the coach's voice in your ear, offering heads-up strategy after the huddle. We tried it, and found it pretty fun. The audibling system is streamlined this year, and EA claims it will be easier to dial up more plays than the default five or so that come up without resorting to Hot Routes. Calling an impromptu deep pass or run play was easier, although we found it hard to customize in our few minutes of play.
Madden 11 (photos)

Even more interesting was Gameplan, an AI script of sorts showing a team's tendency to call plays based on down and situation. Players can tune their own Gameplans by rating individual plays and dialing up or down their frequency of being called, subbing in new plays, or even limiting a situation to one or two go-tos (for instance, you could program all third-and-shorts to be a play-action bomb). This could make Gameflow a lot more interesting.

An EA rep who demoed Madden for us claimed that most users only call 13 plays in an average game. Gameflow, according to EA, also will shorten online games from 40 minutes plus down to about 20 minutes, giving a quicker-fix feeling and allowing those with a football jones to more easily squeeze in a game rather than having a long session. In our limited time with it, Gameflow felt like a streamlined "Ask Madden," skipping play calling altogether and continually leaving the option open to call up the full playbook if desired. Essentially, you could play a whole game without seeing a single play-selection screen.

First of all: Do you feel like you call more than 13 plays a game? If so, do you think Gameflow is a good direction for Madden? We look forward to playing it again as its August release date, and the NFL preseason, approaches.

Madden is a bullshit game,  with that said because the pricks at EA Sports have a monopoly I unfortunately have to play this game and that is the way it is.  The interceptions are absolute bullshit, and the fumbles are shit to.  I know some of you are going to say,  hey, this is a video game,  well my answer to that is that EA says that it is the most realistic game they have made.  If the average number of turnovers in a real nfl game is about 2.0 or 2.5 then I have real problem when at the end of the game there is 7 turnovers between the two opponents.  The linebackers ability to have a 100 inch vertical and pick balls off in the air is garbage. I wish they would not put out a new game for about 3 years until they can redesign an entire new game, just do a roster update for about 20 bucks until they get a better game.  Madden was way better when they had competition.  The Madden guys need to go and ask the NHL boys to help them out.  NHL won just about every award you can win, and it is very realistic.   Even NBA live is better than Madden as far as realism.
With all this said, like a METH addict I purchase it every year, and every year I bitch about it.  But Football is my favorite and the guys at EA count on poeple like me.  They have got us by the balls because it is the only game to buy and they dont have to do one fucking thing, and we cant do anything about it. >:( >:( >:(

The simple fact that the madden meth addicts line the pockets of a very respected football man. Who knows with all his millions he might just end up buying a controlling interest from Mark Davis when he retires. . . It's just like how i love Chucky as a Monday Night football commentator. Another guy who's not going to say a bad word about the team. Madden will have his name associated with the football video game for eternity.

what the hell does that quote have to do with the game.  I was talking about the football game.  i know what you are saying, but I want improvements made to the game.  its the same fucking game every year. lots of int's and lots of fumbles.  same game different year.  i would like an opportunity to play something different.

With all this said, like a METH addict I purchase it every year, and every year I bitch about it.  But Football is my favorite and the guys at EA count on poeple like me.  They have got us by the balls because it is the only game to buy and they dont have to do one fucking thing, and we cant do anything about it. >:( >:( >:(

I have to agree with most of your points made here bro.  I have been playing madden since back on the Sega mega Drive (ah how i miss those days) and i feel that 09 was the best in recent years.  The focus on fumble pile ups was a cool idea at first as it was fresh, but then you come to realise it has just increased the already abundant amount of turnovers in a 5 min quarter game!!!

I just fucking wish that the Raiders did cause the same amount of turnovers in real life as we do in my franchise! Plus Kirk Morrison is a monster against the run...However i shall have to offload him now in light of his recent departure to the retirement state.

Got your gamer invite too Raiderboy, i will hit you up to play some good old shit madden 10 soon! I wanna see if the co-op is as fun as they advertise it to be!

peace out nation

Yeah Bro, dont get me wrong i know most games are released across both platforms but there are just not really any games specific to the PS3 that makes me want to rush out and get it.  I mean that Unchartered series is quite fun from what i played at a friends but i cant off the top of my head think of any game that i would need to have a PS3 for.

Anyway, just to be clear, i appreciate the PS3 and i do like what sony have done with it, i just dont think its an improvement enough over my 360 to force me to change over.  I was always a Playstation guy but when the PS3 was delayed in coming out for like 2 years i went with a 360 and have been enjoying since.

Well, anyway.  its nice to have a little chat with ya about this. unfortunately i must now head out to college.

Has anyone played that new 3rd Generation Console Game called Backbreaker (available on PS3 and X360)

The Gameplay is not bad, But it was a downright disrespectful the Oakland team they had in there called "The Scrouge"

Anyways what irked me the  most is they had the Colour Scheme for the BITCH ASS POTTY NINERS!!!

(http://gamerant.com/wp-content/uploads/NaturalMotion-Backbreaker.jpg)

I don't know if im gonna commit to buying a copy considering Madden is just around the corner 8 weeks or so baby!!!

& plus im phasing out my XBOX360 as i've got a newer type model ps3 (after owning the original 1st release X360) ... I Hope there's cats to play madden with on ps3 cause i know XBOX LIVE represents hardout!!!

I really have not had that many problems, what I like the best is that the 6-7 turnovers per game are gone.  The linebackers do not have a 12 foot vertical and the players drag their feet before going out of bounds.  THe running game is also way more effective than last year.  However, the kicking game sucks, return wise,  difficult to get long returns. Every once in a while you might get somewhere and the audible or the hot route pad sucks.  Overall, the best MADDEN game in 10 years, hands down.  I forgot, what the fuck happened to the halftime show,  its gone, like it never happened.

They have highlights, on saturday, option watch different games around the country, plus fringe sports like rugby, tennis, etc.  I came home Sunday night and was able to watch the USC Vs Oregon game on-demand.  Wednesday, I watched the Celtics basketball game and the South Florida football game.  while watching the game you can choose who you think will win and be updated on all the scores.  You can also watch the game in a lobby like atmosphere showing all the avatar of all the others watching and they all the broadcast are in HD which is good for me because my building doesn't have a HD satelitte so even though I have a HD tv.  All my sports were broadcast on standard def.  Now I can watch in HD because of this setup

Title: I guess Madden games don't change
Post by: Millernation on April 01, 2011, 09:26:26 PM
The creator of the original John Madden Football video game is suing Electronic Arts.
 
Robin Antonick, who developed the first Madden title released in 1988 for MS-DOS, Commodore, and Apple II platforms, claims EA owes him a substantial amount of unpaid royalties. Antonick says the contract he signed with the publisher in 1986 was never terminated and in fact remains in force to this day.
 
The contract requires EA to pay Antonick royalties on not only the versions of Madden developed by him, but also any derivative works. Antonick alleges EA is using software he originally developed in the current generation of software for its Madden titles.
 
"Only recently, as a result of publicity surrounding the 20th Anniversary of the Madden video game, did Antonick become aware that Electronic Arts did not independently develop subsequent versions of its Madden NFL software," the complaint says. "Instead, according to recent statements by Electronic Arts founder Trip Hawkins, the current generation of software apparently was derived from software developed by Antonick."
 
Antonick is seeking tens of millions of unpaid royalties owed to him under the contract and requests EA pays him an amount equal to the profits the publisher earned for the franchise, which to date has sold 85 million copies for over $4 billion in sales.
 
"Unknown to Antonick, Electronic Arts decided that it did not want to share these profits with him even though he was responsible for the development of virtually all the ground-breaking technology at the heart of the game even though Electronic Arts had committed to a long term relationship in which it would pay him royalties over the entire life of the franchise," the lawsuit says.
 
Tiffany Steckler, an EA spokesperson, said in an e-mail: "The complaint and its 20 year-old claim are utterly without merit."

Antonick says the contract he signed with the publisher in 1986 was never terminated and in fact remains in force to this day.
 
The contract requires EA to pay Antonick royalties on not only the versions of Madden developed by him, but also any derivative works. Antonick alleges EA is using software he originally developed in the current generation of software for its Madden titles.
 
"Only recently, as a result of publicity surrounding the 20th Anniversary of the Madden video game, did Antonick become aware that Electronic Arts did not independently develop subsequent versions of its Madden NFL software," the complaint says. "Instead, according to recent statements by Electronic Arts founder Trip Hawkins, the current generation of software apparently was derived from software developed by Antonick."
 
Antonick is seeking tens of millions of unpaid royalties owed to him under the contract and requests EA pays him an amount equal to the profits the publisher earned for the franchise, which to date has sold 85 million copies for over $4 billion in sales.
 
"Unknown to Antonick, Electronic Arts decided that it did not want to share these profits with him even though he was responsible for the development of virtually all the ground-breaking technology at the heart of the game even though Electronic Arts had committed to a long term relationship in which it would pay him royalties over the entire life of the franchise," the lawsuit says.
 
Tiffany Steckler, an EA spokesperson, said in an e-mail: "The complaint and its 20 year-old claim are utterly without merit."

Title: Madden NFL: John Madden told developers "“Fuck that and fuck you people..."
Post by: Randy on May 14, 2011, 12:15:43 AM
Here's an excerpt from an article telling the story of how John Madden got involved with Electronic Arts in the early development of the Madden NFL video game:

As the story goes, EA suggested that the first game bearing Madden’s name go light, maybe with seven players on a side, to cut down on the complexity of programming and playing the game. Here is Madden’s reaction to that suggestion:

Early on the company paid big money to sports legends to give authenticity to their games, and when Trip decided to make the definitive football game, he enlisted legendary Oakland Raiders coach and commercial pitchman John Madden to be the (giant) face of the game. When the developers showed Madden an early version of the game that could only display seven players per team, John wasn’t shy about sharing what he thought.

“Fuck that and fuck you people. Either we do it fuckin’ right or we don’t fuckin’ do it at all.” The team was pretty shocked to hear him saying things he’d normally keep confined to the locker room, but it ultimately pushed the team to get their football game as close to perfect as possible. They toiled for years, even as some in the company wanted to cancel the seemingly unending project, and when it finally did launch it created a dynasty that will probably exist as long as people throw footballs and the NFL gives exclusive contracts.
