PS3 or 360 version?

#1 Posted by thebignasty (65 posts) -

Hey guys. I buy Madden every year, and I've been getting the 360 version the past few years just cuz that's normally where I do most of my game playing. However, this year I'm considering the PS3 version for a couple reasons. One, the only friend I have that plays Madden only has a PS3, so it would let me play online with him (although, we'd prolly only play 5-10 times the whole year since neither of us are super competitive). Two, I've just not been a fan of what Microsoft has been doing with the xbox, so I'd rather give my money to Sony :p . The main thing I do with Madden is Franchise mode, and I don't actually play online that much, but I've heard the PS3 tends to get shafted technically. Is that the case? Will my experience be much better generally with the 360 version?

Nope. Both versions are pretty much identical. Pick whicher console you see fit

I'm a Sony fanboy, go Sony. I kid, I kid.

In reality it comes down to the controller that you're most comfortable with playing, and who you interact the most with in that game. Visually, it's basically a moot point. XBox nudges PS3 in some ways it, supposedly shadows things better, but during gameplay you can't notice.

Even if you only play your buddy head to head 5 or 10 times a year, there's the leaderboards of MUT, Madden Moments, and more that you can compare yourselves to. If you search and find a gaming community of like-minded players of similar skill levels, you can get a lot of good games in and avoid the lobby cheesers.
