Default Madden 17 thread

I'm not sure if I'll pick this up this year because I've created a rule where I only by sports titles every other year but Madden 16 was the big revolution in gameplay that I'd been waiting for and this year it looks like their really focusing on some of the game modes, especially franchise mode. It's nice tro see that they're still giving us offline players some worthwhile game modes instead of just pouring everything into MUT.

Some of the new stuff in franchise mode looks awesome, but I hope they didn't take out owner mode.

i'm an offline only madden guy.. Madden 16 was awesome. the game play is super fun. the franchise mode improvements look pretty sweet, looking forward to getting this thru ea access. Only game i buy on release is NHL (i'm a sucker for suffering, as NHL is a very weak product).

Yeah I'll probably wait for the reviews, first couple of patches to come out, and a price drop to buy it if I actually end up wanting to. Madden and FIFA are the two staples in my gaming library and FIFA looks like it's getting a massive overhaul this year that could also make it worthwhile.

So has anyone picked this up yet? What's the verdict?

Edit: from all the videos on YouTube I didn't realise it wasn't out till tomorrow. No harm bumping this thread though!

Early access has apparently been flawed where pre-order folks can't get in.

The videos online seem to show another great year for madden.

Does anyone here have (or know of someone who has) Madden 17 for Xbox One and does it cause their system to reboot occasionally? I have a new Xbox One S, so it might be a problem exclusive to the console, but it only seems to happen with this one game.

I'm really enjoying it. As someone that mainly plays Franchise offline I think it is quite a bit better than last year. I like Play the Moments (a better version of supersim) and the presentation with augmented UI is pretty cool. Some other presentation and gameplay improvements also make the game worth buying in my opinion.
