    I like how everything EA is touting as their major selling points for 2008 is shown in that video.

    Oh wtf. No current players? I thought the legends were an added bonus, but this game is beginning to make very little sense.
    I don't want to play with a bunch of old guys that I don't know with the exception of a few players.

    Well this may come as a surprise but they are not making the game specifically for you.

    I would bet that there will be custom teams and logos resembling their NFL counterparts available online shortly after the game is released.

    People have been updating rosters on 2K5 keeping it up to date ever since EA purchased the exclusive NFL rights.

    APF is going to give them even more options with its customization, I am assuming.

    I read in an article that the NFL will not allow weather to affect the outcome of a game in their licensed NFL game (Madden). Since 2K does not have to answer to the NFL anymore, players will now slip and fall due poor footing and weather conditions.

    I just thought it was strange that the NFL would make a decision like that, especially when weather is a huge part of the NFL.

    Can't wait for July and August as it seems that both games are gonna be fun.

    APF is going to be an online dream for me as teams will be unique since you draft/create them to your own spec. Couple that with online leagues and there is going to be some serious gaming going on.

    While it does make zero sense, I could see the nfl doing that. They do it for the superbowl. But that is what we love about these games, the weather. Who doesn't get excited for the snow and rain games. I swear, I set up divisions just so I can play in the snow more.

    TRAILER!

    The animations alone blow Madden away. They actually move like real people. Look around the 45 second mark and there's a Titans looking team.
    I'm sure it'll get a lot more polished than this before it releases, but the player movements are great.

    The catching looks so much better, though the one handers look just as bad as Madden.
