    For uniform changes they do update the conference patches on the uniforms and the field. Not sure about adding upgraded equipment though.

    Fortunately for me I have a disc player and am not home on release day anyway so it was an easy choice for me. Basically paid for the disc upgrade by itself

    Appears over night the game fully downloaded to my xbox (no, I can't play it yet)

    Previously the file size was a couple hundred MBs, now a typical 30+ GB file size

    Soon, y'all

    Maybe another download to go prior to release? Madden was 58 GB, PGA Tour 71 GB, NHL 42 GB; all EA games

    But also, all of those have updates and saved progress as part of total file size

    What info is coming out today? Wasn’t there a post earlier in the week that laid things out? Could’ve sworn we were getting player rankings this week but I could be wrong.

    Amex has an offer with Dell right now, spend $550, get $105 back (at least that's what appears on my offer list, don't think these are always universal). You can buy a digital PS5 and a 2nd controller thru Dell and the total comes out to $552 after tax.

    Guessing I'm not the only one buying a playstation this week, so hopefully someone else can take advantage.

    OSU defense is 96 overall. Doesn’t seem crazy

    UGA is 94, seems like they’ll have a ton too

    Have they ever had it on Madden? How was it for the late versions of NCAA?

    I think I’d be fine with an NCAA10 level of detail where you can pick from preset logos, and the like 10 uniform/jersey templates and pick colors, etc.

    Obviously the more detailed the better, but as long as I can create a random 1-Star school and have some customizations in terms of uniforms/stadium I’ll be OK with that year one

    I don't think it's as simple as 96 overall = average 96 rating across the board. Iirc on Madden different positions are weighted more than others. I'm interested to see the ratings today. I'm hoping there's not a ton of 90+ so that the 95 guys really standout.

    no clue on madden but it was good enough on ncaa 14. you could upload your own logo and such.

    my main concern is it not being ready for launch.

    Yeah I don’t think it is either but obviously an extremely high rating like that means that team is most likely to have highly rated guys

    He’s aware that throwaways are incomplete passes and that hurts his QB rating. Pretty smart, imo.
