Well from what I saw it looked like the user had no trouble getting pressure on the QB. I LOVED when (manning i think) was on the run and threw it the pass was no where near his target. Def not seeing any robo qb issues either. Looks much tighter than NCAA. And if anyone missed it, that was the final version of the game.

If you listen closely early in the commentary you will hear some "game breaking" news!! Old #8 is NOT in the game this year!!! Yes, its true!! LOL What morons.

Emmm... Capcom?

I'm thinking Madden IQ needs a name change next year... when he said "For the guys with a lower IQ"... that's a bit insulting, is it not?

the whole camera flashes in broad daylight thing is still pretty annoying, but other than that it looked pretty fantastic in comparison to 08

Weather is only for unranked.

Not a bad interview. The guy playin sucked though. Couldn't stay in the pocket.

Game looks magnificent thats for sure.

Big positive I'm seeing... QBs rolling out, throwing it out there blindly... and they're getting picked off like crazy

Saw the disappearing icons too.

Phil, I know you frequent these boards, and I have one criticism of this interview. When asked of the release date, you mentioned the game is coming to "every platform known to man!". It would be nice if that was true, but it's not true. Madden PC was cancelled, remember? (I believe you're well aware given the Football-Freaks stuff).

Just annoys me a little. Particularly as you were just talking about Spore in the interview - a PC/Mac exclusive game. Given that fact, someone less informed may have the impression Madden 09 is coming to PC this year. It's small I know but it's a little disappointing the cancelling of a platform which *built* the series to what it is today doesn't even stop EA pretending the game is being released on "every platform known to man".

Oh, and how's your N-Gage version coming along?

"Known to man".. as in "The Man"... not the general "Humanity".

We all know "The Man" is EA Sports Personified. And if he doesn't chose to acknowledge a platform, then it doesn't exist.

Yea I caught that too. Those Gamespot guys who cover the sports games are really bad, I listened to a couple of their podcasts and its amazing how clueless they are about most of whats going on in the sports video gaming world.

Someone said that Grossman's bad play in snow is an excuse for Bears fans when the Packers beat op on the Bears. That doesnt make much sense because the Bears are 7-1 aqainst the Packers in the last four seasons.

I think I will be getting this game now. The flash bulbs do look overdone, but it only seems that way on the kick-offs. I will probably make my final desicion after reading the bugs and glitches thread that the hardcore players provide and see if the game needs any patches before investing. If there isnt any major problems like NCAA 09 I will be looking forward to some football this year.

At the most it should be put into the Super Bowl ... regular games DO NOT have that "in the game". My guess is that for 2010 camera flashes will be dramatically toned down or eliminated.

Otherwise game sure does look good, as long as the turnover issue is fixed I can't wait to get my hands on it! (but I will wait for reviews stating the turnover issue is in fact fixed)!

I thought the camera flashes was going to be toned down, guess not.

I think the game is really looking fantastic this year. Looks to be the first playable Madden since 05'!

Just wanted to respond to two posts on here that I think can help clarify some answers:

Maxman1000- Correct me if I am wrong however the Packers and Bears are a rivalry game. They said that in rivalry games to help with that atmosphere they put a darker tint on the game. When it brightened becoming the backtrack feature, it was probably just reverting back to what it would look like without that rivalry game tint. Just speculation but to me that makes sense.

Exonerated- We will have weather for both ranked and un-ranked games, however we will not be able to choose the weather, it will be completely random. I think the bigger question is will it change the time of day, or will we be playing a day game every time. Ian if you read this could you please comment.

Hope this helps guys! I am really looking forward to Aug 12th I LOVE the Madden series and have been waiting for a succesful Madden game since 05'

It did look good. Phil said that weather has an effect on games. I wonder if he or Ian could elaborate on that some more.

Also wanted to ask if there will be a roster update once the game ships? That is Benson on the Bears, and I don't want to see that.

I think that may have been the first time we've seen Human vs. CPU play and it looked great. That sack that he takes at the 8 minute mark - he ran backwards with Grossman to avoid the oncoming rushers but if it looked like if he could have stepped up in the pocket instead and avoided the rush. I don't think I would've seen that in 08.
