Madden 360

EA sports showed a television preview of madden 360 on NFL draft day, and also on their website, but he screenshots and videos they're showing now are nothing like what they promised via that draft day commercial.

I've read several previews in game magazines and website (IGN, Gamespot), and also read the chats these magazines and websites have had with the Madden developers, yet I am yet to see the journalists ask why we are now being given a product that is so far below expectations.

Can we have some journalistic integrity, I mean it's not like EA sports is the white house?

Just noting.

I've seen the 360 connected to a TV and to HDTV. The HDTV connection was much better. Are you comparing some TV screen to that HDTV display?

I watched and will have to watch more closely at the shop that has the xbox 360 connected to HDTV. What I'm thinking is that few will understand that what they see on such a setup is not what we will get on our TV sets.

You are ignoring my complaint. I am not talking about the difference between madden360 on a regualr tv as opposed to a HDTV.

I am refering to the Teaser EA Sports showed on ESPN during the 2005 NFL draft!
The new screenshots and in-game videos EA Sports is showing now does not even come close to resembling the teaser in question.

I am saying that EA Sports falsely advertized the trailer as representative of their upcoming game, and asking why journalists aren't even asking them why. Like I said if this was the white house, this behavior would make sense, but it doesn't, so what gives?

Now either you work for EA Sports of you aren't reading my post clearly enough. Whichever it is please stop the HDTV vs. regular TV smokescreen.

I'm sharing what I'm seeing.

I've watched various games at that outlet and the HDTV hookup is not even close to the TV rendition.

Scream at me and get over that, but I'm offering that I agree with you. I'm also wondering how many other games will get the same complaints.
