    Guys, I just got my copy of Madden and as soon as I put it in (after a system update) there was a software update. As soon as I clicked ok to begin update, it looked like it would start then the screen would go blank and I would get a triple beep form the system. The system would freeze and I would have to kill the power to restart it. I tried a few times and it did it every time. Then I went into the game, skipping the update. Once in the game I signed into EA servers and it once again told me there was an update. This time it actually updated ok and is working just fine.

    Not sure if maybe this is related to the fact that I had the early release, because once I went into the game without the update it showed that it was copying information over. Whatever the reason, that's how I got it to work for me (after a panicked couple of minutes!), just in case anyone else runs into the same thing.

    I had the game freeze at the matchup screen of my first game. With both teams "ready" I hit the PS button to see who else was online and was never able to get back to the game. I had to restart the PS3...

    No freezes for me. Only played 1 game last night though.

    Player interactions are glitchy as hell though. People tripping over others at the end of the play. A little lame. Bout my only complaint after only 1 game though. Game looks pretty nice.

    I would MUCH rather see players tripping all over each other at the end of the play or the holder looking like he's defecating on the field after a successful field goal in order to get the vast improvements that we have with this year's product versus last year's. I'm sure EA will try to work on that moving forward.

    Anyone else find the "twisted arm" syndrome a little disturbing?
    I wonder how a RB can carry the ball behind his back with his arm twisted like a pretzel and not fumble but cough up the ball while covering it up. Hmmm...:confused:

    Yes! That also. And I had one play where my best LB, C. Loston, could have easily made a pick. Instead he batted the ball and it flew all the way across the field about 15 yards. Have some things they need to work on, but overall it's nice. And haven't even gotten into the CC mode yet!

    If you were playing in the community setting, we've purposely toned down the CPU interceptions with the sliders.

    Running is very different this year. I've gotten tackled by my own guys a few times. They should work on allowing you to get back up instead of blowing the play dead. No more squirming around your blockers either. If you don't hit the hole, you don't go anywhere. Last year the RB would slide over and hit the hole on his own...

    You can get back up if you haven't been touched by a defender. I've had it happen a couple of times. I love the fact that the ball carrier doesn't bounce off of his teammates anymore.

    I had a play where I ran into the blocker, fell down with no one around me, and the whistle blew. I think it was on a kickoff return. I don't remember the blocker being engaged...

    had a wierd play vs doug last night where on a punt return I called for a fair catch and everyone stopped and the ball went over my head where I then picked it up off 1 bounce.

    Havent had any game freezes but I did get a loss and a disconnect for excessive grieving. Didnt pause the game or anything, came to the LOS and before I could snap the ball the game stalled and then discod

    There were about a dozen of us in there last night. Hit me up the next time you're on YIM, Loren, and I'll send you my contact list for the league.

    I've had the game pause a number of occasions. Stops, "Please wait" appears on the screen and then it restarts. Lag/server issues?
