Madden To Incorporate Real-Time Injury and Weather Conditions
 
This is pretty awesome (do the kids still say "awesome" anymore?):

[QUOTE]
Beginning in August, thanks to a deal with The Weather Channel, a Madden ‘08 NFL game at the Baltimore Ravens’ stadium automatically will be set in the snow if it happens to be snowing that day on Maryland’s Atlantic coast.

Similar innovations soon will allow an option to incorporate current sports news and statistics from ESPN into the game.

“So if a guy in the real world twists his ankle, you can’t use him in the game until he gets back,” said Aaron LaBerge, senior vice president of technology and product development for ESPN.

Sounds pretty cool. I'm really getting pumped for Madden '08, sounds like it should be much more than just your typical roster change and a small tweak here or there. It seems like they're giving the game a much needed facelift

Most next-gen games are $60 now anyway.

I don't think that's bad considering video games have always hovered around $50 going back to the Atari days.

how about they finally use the ESPN contract they paid for into the game to provide halftime highlights and weekly recaps?

Let's hope they fix the game play first.

Flashy extras aren't what the game needs.

I cannot even think about MADDEN 08 yet. I have to get a PS3 first. HHHHMMMM, make car payment or buy a PS3? Decisions, decisions. I know!, I can put it on layaway so that I can have it for next year! My point is why in the hell does it still cost $500+ for something that cant suck you, f*** you, cook, or clean?

madden developers better hope they improve the game play of madden because i'd rather play 2k5 which is going on 3 years old than play madden 07. madden 07 is the worst madden game ever.

why dont you guys just bulid a good computer for gaming instead of blowing hundreds of dollars for the lastest psp or xbox,, i dont know i've never been really big on games i love 1st person shooter (swat4,rainbow6 etc),, just invest in a good video card get 2gigs of ram and thats about it,, plus the graphics are much better on computer and much better control with keyboard/mouse than controller. and i know its wrong but you can just download the games for free instead of blowing 60 bucks a game
