Madden '08... Holy Crap!

ESPN has a sneak peak at Madden '08...and just watching that makes me sorta wish I hadn't sold that PS3 last November...

Holy crap the graphics are just sick. Maybe if I have a big summer and have some extra cash laying around I'll go buy a PS3 or a 360. I got to play on my 11 year old cousin's PS3 in April while we were down for a visit, and the NBA game, and the Call of Duty 3 I bought him and his brother for the holidays lookd awesome in HD...

But this game looks just awesome!

It's actually Vince Young from Tennessee....

The one problem I have with every Madden game is that it is the same as the year before's.....we need more new things to make the popular game even more popular.

Vince Young of the Titans.

Here's an interesting look in the "Madden Curse". IMHO, it should be the EA Curse since similar things have happened to the athletes that have appeared on the cover of the other sports games EA makes.

Edited after the answer was given...never mind on Peyton!

With Vince Young getting the jinx, maybe the Texans will find a way to beat him!

Graphics always are good, it's the gameplay and features. Last year, it sucked on both counts. We'll see, but I have my doubts.

Well I believe it all is coming to an end. Oh well, I guess we are gonna pretend.

I'm really looking forward to it this year.

Last year EA seemed to be putting a lot of time into developing graphics and all for the new systems without adding much more in the line of new features with gameplay, franchise mode, etc. This year we should (hopefully) see more of that sort of thing to go along with the amazing graphics!

Help me out here. While I understand my view might be skewed as I long for the days of Tecmo Bowl and Super Tecmo Bowl, how does '08 look any different from any of the other Madden's from say the previous few years?

They've added on-field player arrests, strip club parking lot shootings, and a Michael Vick dogfighting mini-game.
