    All i can say is espn football is better then madden, both graphic wise and the way you play it. Madden is complicated to set everything up while espn is a lot easier to play the game and set up a franchise.

    I just think madden is way more popular because it was the first football video game created i believe. Maddens way overated sometimes.

    Wow, I don't think I've ever heard anyone say that they like ESPN football better. That is definitely a first!! I've never played ESPN, so I'll have to give it a try sometime!!

    Im a madden faithfull. I played the a few of the NFL2k series and just never liked it. I know people like the graphics a little more with ESPN. I'm really glad that its getting better, that makes the competion better. Even NFL Gameday (989 sports) and NFL Fever (microsoft) arent comming out this year and are going to take the extra time to come up with a better product fro next year(or so they say). There are some bad points with Madden and its glitches. Jetpacking, too succesful bumb and run, motion AI confusions, mis-adjustments with the offensive line and online they're a bunch of flaws as well (very bad one when a person quits on you, but you get the loss instead of them). They should all be worked out for next year. But having competion makes each game better and try to out do each other. Im know my $50 or $65 is going to Madden. $65 is for the anniversary version of Madden 05 that has extra behind the scene stuff, documentery and ways to milk another $15 of crazy people such as myself.

    Additional info on 05 from EA Sports:
    With Memorial Day now in the past, that means summertime is here for all
    intents and purposes -- and it also means that Madden NFL 2005 will soon
    be on the shelves. In order to give fans a sneak peak at what's in store
    for this year's top football gaming experience, we had a chat with line
    producer Phil Frazier, who divulged some key facts about what we can
    expect from the all-time best-selling gridiron title.

    EA SPORTS: What exactly is the Hit Stick?

    Phil Frazier: The Hit Stick is a brand-new control innovation whereby
    players can attempt to lay a big hit on their opponent by flicking the
    right stick. They are risky, as a mis-timed hit can be devastating to
    your defense, but it can all pay off with a huge hit and a fumble or
    dropped pass.


    EA SPORTS: What other modifications have been made to defensive play
    this year?

    Phil Frazier: We started over and re-did our DB coverage, especially
    man-to-man. Good DBs will just blanket their receivers this year. We
    really feel that we've portrayed the shut-down corners extremely well,
    and it will actually force the offense to rely more on strategy and
    mismatches than money plays. Adding to that, defensive matchups let you
    assign a particular defensive player to cover a certain guy all game.
    Imagine sticking Champ Bailey on Randy Moss, and not really having to
    worry about that side of the field for the rest of the game. We also
    added defensive hot routes where you can customize nearly everything
    about your defense before the snap. There are just too many things to
    mention -- it truly is an exciting year for defense.

    EA SPORTS: Talk to us about the new Storylines involved in the game.

    Phil Frazier: Storyline Central is a new addition to Franchise Mode this
    year that focuses on every story that is at the forefront in the NFL.
    The stories around your team now impact your team. If the rookie RB is
    pushing the veteran for playing time but not getting it, his morale will
    drop and it will affect his performance. You hear about the stories
    three different ways.

    The first is the newspaper. Every team in Franchise has a newspaper from
    their local city that discusses only the stories that pertain to that
    team. We also feature USA Today, which is the franchise's national
    newspaper. In USA Today, the most important stories from the entire NFL
    appear.

    The second part of Storyline Central is EA Sports Radio. We've added
    sports talk radio to Franchise, where host Tony Bruno breaks down the
    week's biggest stories. Each week's show includes call-ins, coach and
    player interviews, trivia questions and from time to time, Tony will
    rant about important issues in the NFL.

    The last aspect of Storyline Central is email. Every week on your PDA,
    you'll receive emails about everything going on with your team. You will
    receive emails from players, coaches, general managers, the PR
    department, etc... If a player is upset about his playing time, you're
    definitely going to hear about it!

    EA SPORTS: What sort of changes have you made to Franchise Mode this
    year?

    Phil Frazier: We've added more to franchise this year than we've ever
    added before. Some key additions include:

    Restricted Free Agents - Allow your young guys to test Restricted Free
    Agency.
    Preseason Position Battles - Let two players who are similar in talent
    battle it out for the starting job.
    Player Personalities - Players react to everything that happens to them
    and if things get really bad for them, they demand a trade. If you're
    not throwing the ball to your star receiver, you'll hear about it.
    Franchise Tags - Tag players who refuse to re-sign with your team.
    New Realistic Off-season Free Agency - Players no longer only care about
    money. They now look at your team, the players you have, your team
    prestige and lots of other factors.
    Weekly Gameplan - Your coordinators provide you with a gameplan each
    week that contains keys to stop your upcoming opponents.
    NFL Icons - We've acknowledged the stars in the NFL and they become
    Icons in your Franchise. These players influence free agents and affect
    morale if something happens to them.
    Practice in Franchise - You can now practice with your current franchise
    team.
    Improved Team Management - Teams intelligently manage their rosters now.
    They cut dead weight and sign regular season free agents.
    Name Team Captains - You can now name your team captains every year in
    Franchise.
    Rivalries - Rivalries are a new addition to Franchise this year.
    Team Prestige - A new aspect of Franchise is prestige. Turn a perennial
    loser around to become a true powerhouse.
    In-Season Player Progression - Players now progress based on how well
    they're doing during the season. Breakout players are rewarded for their
    performance.
    Improved Draft - A ticker, announcer and trading during the draft
    highlight our draft improvements.
    Change Player Positions - You can change the positions of players in
    Franchise every season now.

    EA SPORTS: Are there still training camps and other skill-improvement
    features?

    Phil Frazier: Practice Mode, Mini-Camp, Situation Mode, Football 101,
    and several tutorial videos are all available to help people that may
    have difficulty with the game. Even experienced players use these to
    keep their skills sharp. We've also added a mini-game called Rushing
    Attack that allows two users to go head-to-head in our Ground Attack
    drill.

    EA SPORTS: Fans are now a more important part of the game. What does
    Create-a-Fan do?

    Phil Frazier: Create-a-Fan allows you to make a crazy fan to your liking
    to have him show up in games that you play. You can customize everything
    about him, from a foam finger to a dog bone, and you can team specific
    objects to your fan. We have added numerous fan cut scenes this year --
    be sure to check this out because there are some pretty hilarious ones
    in there.


    EA SPORTS: Are you adding any new old school teams, players and uniforms
    this year?

    Phil Frazier: No additional old school teams or players; however, we
    have included all of the alternate jerseys teams are now wearing in the
    NFL.

    EA SPORTS: Any changes to the graphics engine, physics engine,
    animations or anything else that dictates the way the game looks and
    feels?

    Phil Frazier: Madden NFL 2005 looks and feels like a completely new
    game. We're updated our player models to look more intense, and more
    realistic. The environments, including stadiums, lighting, and the sky,
    have all been redone as well. Check out the sidelines: we've added tons
    of players, media, and other 'stuff' to make the sidelines look more
    realistic.

    All-new running animations provide a much more realistic looking and
    feeling running game. We've added over 1000 new animations to the game
    this year.

    EA SPORTS: What sort of new features will be available for online play
    with PlayStation 2 and Xbox LIVE?

    Phil Frazier: This year, online play features a ton of refinement over
    last year's game. We've added a lot more ways for users to match-up with
    a player who is closer to the skill level, as well as more powerful EA
    Messenger that will allow you to keep track of dozens of friends while
    online. One of my favorite new features is the quick tournaments, which
    allow you to play in 4 or 8 player tournaments in one sitting, without
    having to wait for your opponent to show up. We've also added an
    insanely addictive Rushing Attack mini-game, which lets you go
    head-to-head with other players online to see who can pick up the most
    yardage. Add to that unlockable trophies and medals, a robust scouting
    report that lets you size up a player before you play him, a real-time
    score and stats ticker and a deeper stats book, and you've got the best
    online football experience out there.

    EA SPORTS: Anything else you want to add about Madden NFL 2005?

    Phil Frazier: The addition of the Hit Stick and our other defensive
    enhancements is sure to change the way video game football is played, I
    promise... defense is fun to play this year! Storyline Central adds even
    more depth to Franchise Mode and gives you even more to think about as
    you run your team. Create-a-fan really adds a little something else for
    the user to customize.

    Overall, there are a TON of new features throughout the game that we
    think our fans will enjoy!

    Are there any Madden 04 players?

    I just looked on the website for when it is coming out and I think it was sometime in August, but I can't remember the specific date. That is going to be great. I love that game. The only problem is is that NCAA 2005 comes out only like a month or two ahead of Madden. That doesn't give me too much time, and then we can't forget about NBA 2005, and Tiger Woods 2005, and GTA San Andreas!! Man dilemmas!!

    I played a little on XBOX. Well, actually - quite a bit, I was hooked!

    Anyhow, i'm waiting for my USB - PS2 converter to come so I can use my PS2 controller on the PC, as I find the game a whole lot better on this as opposed to the XBOX. The franchise is hella addictive!

    I'll practice up and have a game with someone!
