NCAA March Madness 09 News Post



The NCAA Basketball 09 team has sent us this exclusive video of the new Kentucky Wildcat uniforms in action. *Please note, this video was created 6 months ago, on the March Madness 08 engine.

This was in response to this thread in our Forums.

"Sean O'Brien: Fellas, saw a lot of comments on the new Kentucky uniforms that were unveiled last week. Also saw some questions as to if they'd be in this year's NCAA BB 09. First off, Yes - they will be in the game. In fact, these uniforms were in the game before the players and coaches at Kentucky had even seen them, way back in April. We worked closely with Nike to create a "highlight" video of Kentucky wearing the new uniforms, that would be presented to Kentucky along with mockups of the uniforms. After all, it's hard to get a sense of what the new uniforms will look like in action, if all you can see is a sketch or a model wearing a sample. Both EA and Nike thought this would be a very cool way to present the new look to the Wildcats. We've provided the video for you guys to see, exclusive to OS. Keep in mind that because of when this was made, we had to use last year's game engine. So ignore the animations, physics etc... As you can see from our first gameplay trailer, things have changed for the better."

That was a cool thing of them to do. Damn fast response too.

Nice work, EA. For some reason, the uniforms seem less repulsive in the game than they do in real photos. Maybe I'm just getting used to them.

Nice work, I'm not sold on the gameplay.

I went to Midnight Madness this past Friday night for UK, and I must say, the new uniforms are actually pretty awesome looking. I sat 4 rows behind the blue bench, so I was able to get a pretty good look at them.

That's awesome they are in the game. Just a big lighter in the blue than they actually are, but beggers can't be choosers!

Actually that video was using March Madness 08's engine from last year.

NCAA BB 09 is using the Live 09 engine, which isn't a bad thing. Especially since Live 09 plays a great game of basketball this season.

Also from what Steph, Dave, and Tomba have said,"it plays a lot better than Live 09"! And that's saying a lot.

Can't wait to get my hands on this game. So far with all the threads and features that seem to be in it. It might not be a 100% perfect, as no BB game is, it does seem to offer a lot. I just hope Jab and the other producers come in and stay here and keep us informed.

College Basketball is one of my passions. And I actually like it better than NBA.
