It looks great. However, Madden is upping the ante by promisiing innovations on the defensive side of the ball like being able to call hot coverages, blitzes, and double-teams from the line-of-scrimmage. Is Sega going to have similar features?

By innovations, do they mean.....eliminating tons of money plays. ;)

RingWraith,

 

According to EA, this year's Madden will allow you to call a blitz, double-team, zone, and man-to-man coverage, on any defender from the line, ie. from the line, call your free safety in on a blitz and have the strong safety switch to zone coverage.

 

It sounds very cool and has been something I've pined after for years. Now, whether this becomes a reality or not is a different question. However, is Sega offering any similar defensive capabilities?

For some reason I thought I read about the ability to call more defensive audibles for individuals....It has been awhile since I read the previews....I'll have to look into it and get back to you...I don't know if what they are wanting to do is as in depth as Madden though.

The VIP concept is very cool. I'm almost more excited to see that coaches will, hopefully, behave much more like their real-world counterparts than anything else.

 

Somewhat off topic: I wonder when the sports games will start using rag-doll type physics in lieu of canned animations. It would be awesome to see players react in real-time from hits and tackle attempts.

It looks like both Gamestop and EB are claiming the game will ship at a $19.99 price point! That's right!!!

 

There was a press release a few days ago stating that the game would come "value priced", but never in a million years did I dream that the game would hit at $19.99.

 

Check out the following links for information!

I already ordered mine for in-store pickup on release day! Look out Madden :)
