It really wouldn't be that different from navigating the dashboard if you could say things like "motion, 31 right", "audible, run, 4" ...would be surprised if you had to speak the plays, and instead spoke to slots. Maybe they could be renamed though... "check, run, jumbo". Saying that first keyword would just adjust the UI and reveals the elements you can speak next. I'm not even sure i'd want to hike with my voice... "hut, hut, hike!" ?

Or the UI is changed so much they can't show off one without spoiling another overarching feature like how they're all connected now so they're being rolled out all together.

I'm loving the presentation focus but I'm taking a stand this yr if they've left franchise mode untouched and or buggy this is a no buy for me. I've waited too long for a franchise mode up to last gen standards.

Have not bought Madden since Vickmeister graced the cover in 04'. It appears EA is giving me yet again another reason to keep the "streak alive" if they implement some "kinect" foolishness to gameplay. This would really BLOW being that I was looking to end the "streak" just to play with RGIII and those SKINS...but oh well...SMH

Looks as if the NFL draft will only be the consistent thing coming out this week with regards to football in America, cause EA definitely ain't!

We are getting more franchise upgrades this year, right?

Yes but unlikely to be 'Huge' like last year

The only Kinect or Move integration I could really care about would be adding something like gameface or being able to upload a picture of myself into the game.

I am excited. I enjoyed 12 so any improvement I'll take.

That's fine with me so long as they've finally added CPU trades and things like that.

I have a fear that connected careers may be some dumb social media gimmick.

I don't see how anyone could make that assumption unless you're going to be able tweet as Madden, Gibbs, Sanders, or LT with the preorder bonuses.

They've clearly done something to bring the modes under one umbrella, either multiple modes in a season, online access to all the modes, etc. will be interesting to see what they've come up,with.

Just being able to post your score to Facebook? Unlikely.

things i dont want it to be or include ...

kinect, when i bought my 2nd xbox i specifically went for the non kinect version, if i knew how and could throw like an nfl qb then id be one. let the wii be the place to wiggle and sweat. vocal instructions sucks as an idea. dont think it will be kinect cos ps3 and the majority of xbox arent connect

social media, i dont know what its like in the states but twitter/facebook are having issue in uk with the law let alone personal privacy. sony and account security for 10 Bob ...

online franchise, sorry never attracted me.

worried no mention of franchise. what i do want is real physics and as close to reality play as possible. psychic dbs, super lbs, no edge pressure, ol/dl interaction etc.

ideally imagine madden to include elements from hc06/09, ncaa and then flavour with presentation. as for cameras, pretty please when you are playing a superstar or a defender in franchise to face up to the opposition. moving stick down and trying to hit stick up at the same time does my limited aged body no good. also the ss camera, can i have somewhere between standard and zoomed, i want to see oline and lbs and angle of view but not so far away i need a set of binos !!!

and trade logic, if i want to trade 3 1s this year for a 1 next, someone would take that deal? seems not in 2012 and that doesnt make sense.

Once again this year, I will just hope to finally see a true halftime show with highlights,stats and commentary - and a end of the game highlight show, and a full fledge haltime show during season and franchise mode that also shows highlights,stats of other games going on around the league, I heard its been done before so its nothing new.....
