Nope, only madden. I un connected it and re connected... Still the same.

You just have to be smart and pacient even if that means earning every yard in a passing situation. Play with alot of easy hook and slant routes, but if you see a DB DONT THROW IT! Audibles and changing the route of the receiver help as well.
I disagree with this. I say the AI gets "cheaper". Getting picked off my a defensive lineman making a one handed grab twice in one game is BS. The "spiral through the air" catch is horrible. Worst yet is the "db jumps up to make a play on the ball, misses, then rotates in mid-air to make a tackle"...

Horrendous!

A megapixel is 1 million pixels. A TV with 480 x 640 pixel structure is not HI Def and doesnt have a million pixels. The minimum display that is considered Hi definition is 720P x 1024 and HDMI just combines audio and video together in 1 cable.

Dont buy expensive HDMI cables!!!. goto monoprice.com and buy them for a fraction of the price of Monster or rocketfish cables. I have ordered 6 over the years and they all work great.

I would trust Monoprice over eBay, personally, but whatever works. I love that site. All my speaker wiring and hometheater stuff comes from there.

Retail stores rip you off for cables.

Regarding Madden...the Interception meter is always WAY too high on those games...you have to go in the menues and set the CPU and Player interception slider way down to make it accurate.

$30? How about your $6 cable is as good as the $120 monster cable Best Buy is trying to shove down people's throats...
