Be honest with yourself - Madden could play identical to 1986's Tecmo Bowl and people would wait in line 24 hours to buy it.
It will sell, it just wont be mainstream. there is tons of faithful 2k players that will buy any football 2k puts out. it wont even come close to madden sales and they arent expecting it too. thats just fine with me though. I know alot of guys over on the 2k forums that will play and i will have fun competeting against them online. For me thats all i need.
Also, i could care less what madden puts out. They dissapoint me year and and year out. I wont buy it. So they can have all the people they want standing in line.
