View Full Version : Okay...for Madden '04, which system?

07-02-2003, 02:32 PM
I have both PS2 and XBox....anyone know which would be better? I've only played it on the PS2, so I have no idea if it's any good on XBox.

Anyone have '03 on XBox, and if so...how was it?

I have it on XBOX. Trust me get it on PS2, more user friendly and runs smoother. Graphics are slightly worse. But online is also a plus for PS2.

xbox version absolutely blows away the PS2 version. i had both last year. NO COMPARISON. graphics way better. gameplay better. more line shifts. best of all sound is in 5.1 dolby digital with crowd noise all around. THIS ABSOLUTELY ROCKS!!!! last years online attempt was downright awful, might be better this year. i sold back my PS2 copy after playing XBOX version, it is way better. sorry there is no way you can possibly tell me PS2 version is better. every rating i ever read also ranked XBOX higher than PS2 version, it is a much more powerful system and can create much better graphics and sound than the PS2. last year i was die hard MADDEN and that XBOX version was hands down the best version ever.

PS2 online for Madden is supposed to be vastly improved. Still, I almost pulled the trigger on an XBOX last night. Shipping and all, it would have come to $115 (slightly used). Such a deal!! But it's still $115 that I don't have right now. :(

i have both , actually have 2 PS2 in the house now. xbox definitely worth $100 bucks. final;ly getting some good games and XBOX live is awesome

unclemonty, how much was xbox live? do u have to pay a monthly fee to use it? can u hook it up to your normal cable internet for the computer at no extra chanrge?

Its by year bobby and go to xbox.com for the prices. Im going to get madden 2004 for the xbox because the 2003 version was the best for xbox. What unclemonty said its true.

you pay $50 per year and thats it. to start you get a free headset and game and some other demos. next year i guarantee Madden will be online on xbox. they have no choice. i am in the industry and someone at E3 told me EA is already questioning their little power battle with microsoft. they gain nothing by shutting out xbox online. loss could be huge, because they have taken years to build best football game this year and several people will snub the game this year because of no online.

I think ps2 contract with EA online end March, so Madden 2005 will be online for xbox.

I have Madden 03' for X-Box and its very cool. I have both systems( ps2 and the box) and when I get Mad 04', I'll get it for the Box without checking the Ps2 version first.

Get the BOX.

I've played Madden on the Cube and BOX, but I don't see really any differences between those two.

Never played it for PS2 ;\.

It seems PS2 is better for RPGs and things like that. The X-Box is better for shooters and sports IMO.

There really hasnt been much RPG's for the xbox. I think Morrowind and KOTOR are the only good ones..and soon Fable. Anyways..aug 18 is right in the corner! :D

Looks like I'll be getting it for the PC, if anything. I've pretty much hit bottom financially. LOL

I went to gamespot today and they said it out august 12.

I have always played it on the PS2..of course I dont have an X-Box, but Id imagine it has better graphics on X-Box....but I love those PS2 contols better.

I bought the x-box first and loved the graphics and short loading times, but the PS2 had alot more games out so I decided to get that one too. It's good to have both systems if you can afford it. Whenever a game comes out for both systems, hands down, I get the Box one cause the graphics will be better.
