I saw that Madden is coming out on the PSP today or tomorrow. It's supposed to have online "infrastructure" mode meaning you can play others online. Is anyone planning on purchasing this game? I've read two reviews, one gave it a 7.9 the other gave it an 8.5. Both reviews complained about the ridiculous load times for the game. I'm not sure yet whether or not I will purchase.

The answer is 'no', not while an exclusivity deal exists between EA and the NFL.

While I agree the whole exclusivity deal was a crock of "you know what" I feel torn on the issue. It will probably be the only football game out for the PSP and I'm a big football fan. It's the only way I can play my 2-0 Bengals on the PSP! Posted Image

As far as the NFL is concerned, you're on the money. Posted Image Nevertheless, Midway's Blitz: The League is still on tap for an October release, and even though the PS2 and Xbox versions will be available this year, it's possible that a PSP version could be announced somewhere down the line. There are lingering rumours that 2K Sports are working on a football game of their own, enlisting the talents of retirees and HOFers. Nothing concrete at this time, but you never know.

I watched a bit of the telecast this past Sunday and was impressed with Palmer's development and leadership thus far. They could be a fun team to watch (it certainly beats tuning in to a Browns' broadcast Posted Image )

I might buy it. I'm curious about the loading time deal though. Is it when starting up a game for the first time? or is it during the game itself?

I have Tiger Woods for the PSP and it takes about 30 seconds to get the round started. Long, but the payoff is worth the 'wait'. In between holes it takes about 10-15sec or so. Again, the payoff is worth the wait. I have played through and am 97% complete on this game, so load time complaints are seriously overblown if you realize the payoff far out ways the wait time...shi* the original PS had tough load times too, it didnt hurt the HW or SW sales back then.

I'll post back if i pick up the game. I really want some of that infrastructure online action!!!

I am playing it and it reminds me a lot of early madden on the PS1. Control is strictly passing icons with no pump fakes and limited "precision passing", also the yellow cone is not available, nor are laterals. Still, great to have a portable football game so at least worth a look.
