Head on over to Gamesradar to get the details. Now if Madden can give us something like this, how awesome would that be?

Quote:
"FIFA 09 will feature 10v10 online play on Xbox 360 and PS3. David Rutter, Line Producer on the PS3/360 version told us: "We've managed to get 10 v 10 this year online through strength of will and technological nous. [But] we want to make sure the control system for controlling goalkeepers is compelling enough before putting it in, because no game has done it particularly well, if it's even been in there."

I think a 5 on 5 in Madden would work almost immediately. For them to do 11-on-11 they'd really have to recreate the blocker vs. defender system and make it something people would want to play.

As the game is now, I don't think a lot of folks would want to play on the offensive line. And special teams would be nothing more than trying to run into people.

Sweet.

Awesome! This makes FIFA 09 a must buy for me, although getting 20 online players to play their positions correctly is probably going to be like herding cats.

11 on 11 in Madden might be awesome or it might be sheer chaos.

I love that they want to expand to 10 vs 10, but I hope they add a few more features to the mode like the ability to kick people, a way to force start a game (instead of waiting for everyone to hit "Ready"), and just improve on some of the lag from button presses/movements, etc.

This is great news!

We need to start recruiting for an OS team. I think some 5v5 play can help us determine who is worthy.

I tend to play with De Rossi online in Be a Pro. I prefer to be a setup man and defensive mid.

Well now I am going to have to get FIFA. Teamwork FTW!

Awesome! I'm really looking forward to trying this out. I'm also glad they're not doing keepers this year. I liked it in NHL 08 but the 12 - 8 scoreline's got kind of old.

Meow, meow...... I'm up for it. Man, the only problem I see is time zones. You guys are all out west, even Therizing is Central time. But I'm game to give it a go!

Man, I need to practice with you guys. My online game is weak! I just got killed online. I couldn't score to save my life. And it was a guy off here. He needs to play with us. I'm a fullback guys, my skill sticks aren't near up to snuff like I thought they were. I can't remember his OS handle, but if he reads this I"m humbled. I have mad respect for your game. I'm hoping you join our little squad. I call RB!

I never got a chance to play 5v5 with any of you, so I would love to give it a go while we pass the time until 09. We need to actually organize a game (or series of) soon. Someone step up and take charge!
