Madden NFL 08 Interview

GameDaily has posted an interview with EA Sports Director of Marketing, Chris Erb, for an exclusive interview about the pick and some hints on what the selection means to Madden NFL 08.
GameDaily: "Since Vince Young is a quarterback, will Madden NFL 08 have a new quarterback feature this year?"
Chris Erb: "Our focus this year is truly around the game play experience. As we get closer to launch, we'll start talking features, but core game play is truly the focus. We started the next-gen games from the ground up with all new engines. We feel we're in a really good space graphically and with our depth, but we've heard the feedback from users and we're taking it to heart this year."

SportsGamer Update (Multi)

SportsGamer has posted the following updates:
  • Madden '08 Training Camp
    "Each year Madden becomes more and more like the real NFL. Players appear more lifelike. Playbooks become more accurate. The game more in-depth with features like hot routes, playmaker controls, and the vision cone. These nuances can be enough to intimidate even the seasoned Madden gamer. While familiarity with the feature itself may not be too daunting, understanding when and how to use them effectively can be. As a result, one integral method to improving your Madden play is to develop a good understanding of the NFL game."
  • An Inside Look at EA Sports Next Gen NASCAR 08
    "EA Sports showed off its first next gen NASCAR game at its EA Tiburon studio and asked race fans if they can handle the Car of Tomorrow? "NASCAR 08" will feature four playable vehicles, including the Car of Tomorrow, the standard Nextel Cup cars, the Busch Series cars and the NASCAR Trucks. Each of these vehicles will handle like the real thing, which offers quite a different experience for games on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 2. The game's expected to ship this July with the two next gen versions offering different features than the returning PS2 game. The PSP game is taking at least this season off."

Other Stuff...

Well, the docs tell me I have a pulled abdominal muscle and I should lay off playing basketball for 3 to 4 weeks. That is going to kill me. At least it wasn't anything major though, so in a way, I'm happy about it.

Me and Dan won our first game of our NBA 2K7 season last night, beating up on the Kings 94-80. We are now a whopping 1-4! w00t!

What's up with you?

I am just absolutely giddy this morning that the Cavs got the 2 seed in the East and get the beat-up Wizards in the 1st round and avoid Detroit/Miami until the Conference Finals. Thank you New Jersey for beating the Bulls last night.

QOTD- If I was going to have to pick one I would have to say NBA 2k7.
