well if u got a 360 then ur only choice is 2k. 2k is made for xbox and the show is playstation 2 and 3. i like 2k its takes some time to get use to it. if ur gonna use the new pitching then make sure u read the pitching turtorial inside the game i was giving up hits left and right to high A Vero Beach until i read it and then once u get the hang of it is pretty fun and realistic. im in the middle of a franchise with the pirates and im 7-6.

but yea before i got my xbox i had PS2 and i loved the show's career mode it was so fun working ur playing through the minors and only having to play as yourself

thats the reason the show is the best one b/c u have the career mode which is ballin.. and the graphics and gameplay on the ps3 are sick.. it's always fun to make urself and be assigned to a team and work ur way thru the ranking to get to the pro's...

Default Re: Madden 08

The last roster update for Madden 08 is out for the 360 and PS3. This update removes all players from the IR and somewhat surprisingly does include transactions made plus ratings and weapons changes. The Super Bowl was obviously taken into account with the Giants receiving a bunch of significant upgrades.

In a year that EA has been highly criticized one area where they excelled was with the roster updates. Going into 08 the goal was to do them on a weekly or bi-weekly basis after having never had any real consistency in previous years. While it wasn’t quite done at that pace (bad gap between November 12th and January 14th) it still represented a huge improvement. It was also nice to have all the changes communicated instead of just wondering or digging through players trying to figure out who had moved. Hopefully it gets even more frequent next year and other EA Sports games follow their lead in this area.
