For people who did the pre-order, my status changed to "open," which means it's about to be shipped, if not today, then tomorrow. My credit card was also charged.

yea it says open for mine, and says that means
"For pre-order/backorder items: Order will be processed when item arrives. "

So I dont think it really means anything. Doesnt mean they have it yet. I hope they do but I doubt it. When do EB games get madden? Does the 9th mean the day when ea sports ships it out?

I read on another forum that EB gets copies of madden before other stores, and people who pre-order it online get it a day before everyone else. Don't know how accurate that is. Yeah, EA is supposed to ship it the 9th. Someone also said when they charge your credit card and change the status to open, it is getting ready to ship. Again, don't know how accurate this is. Was your card charged?

I received an email today saying my order is confirmed, but it didn't give a ship date or expected arrival.

hmm. If it comes the 10th ill be happy. the 9th will be great but my delivery guy usually comes around six anways, so i wouldnt get in much gaming before the skins game. So I GUESS I could wait one more day.

hey matty, you take off work next week? didnt you say a while ago you usually take off when madden comes out?

youll just have to be a little groggy I guess after you stay up all nigth playing, heh.

I really liked that article from the other thread. Im soooo excited to get this game. Ive been waiting for years for teh computer to actually do something in franchise mode. To offer trades, for their to be trading on draft day. Those things along would make me buy madden over espn.

Yeah my butt will be dragging at work all next week, I'm sure I won't be the only one, LOL.

I'm really getting pumped, especially after that IGN review. The player morale thing is going to be really great. Finally it won't be so easy to keep your team stocked. Players will want to leave for more playing time and won't stick around just for the $$. The new draft sounds really awesome too.

Yea it willa lso be great that peopel progress during the yera. I know there have been plenty of times where I have had a guy that looks good but has bad awareness. They used Boller as an example of that going up during the season as he plays more, thats clutch.

Also the email and newspaper features, as well as the radio show will only make the game better. I can't wait.

Every year when I play madden, the first thing i have always had to do was get a halfback. I can dominante at running, even on all madden, but i live for having a fast halfback. My friend loves the power backs but I just need speed. In madden 2003, I always used Trung as my starting halfback. Then, when he was a skin in 2004, I would never use him becuase they lowered his broken tackle rating and other stuff by to much. So, in short, what I am most looking forward to is having Clinton Portis on my team, rihgt from the get go!!!!

hey seasonticketholder, does your tracking number work yet. Ive got a feeling that they boxed up madden, put a tracking number on it but arent acutally giving it to fed ex until monday... Mabye they wernt allowed to ship until the 9th.

I was in ebgames yesterday and they said they arent getting the game until the 12th, even if you preordred it the stores cant sell it until then.
