    So 3 on 3 does very lil for me to be honest ... I'm thinking NBA Jam or NFL Blitz

    The graphics in that trailer are really polished and the lighting is next level (awesome)

    Anxious to see how defensive assignments work ... that is big news in itself but gut reaction says that implementation will break something else lol

    Target passing? Similar to the cone passing years back or is this involve the joystick even more with leading a receiver? Could be similar to MLB the show when aiming a throw where is slows down time for a few seconds?

    I'm kind of concerned about target passing as well. I don't really want the old vision cone back. But I would like to lead guys better. Will be interesting to see how that plays out. Also, hoping that defensive assignments work well. I can see the difficulty in it. Hopefully after two years of working on it they have it nailed down. I think 3-on-3 is going to be 11-on-11 but you can have 3 users on each side of the ball. Just a guess. 2-on-2 team play from PS2 days worked liked that.

    Yeah. Hoping Target passing is not the cone vision passing we had previously. Hated it.

    Sounds like it might be a cursor you move around on the field and throw to that spot. :cool:

    Not sure yet. My guess is 11-on-11 football where there are three users on each team each playing a different position.

    Just wondering if this will just be a picture inserted like MLB the show between innings and in this case maybe to start the game ... love the look and feel of it but if the rest of the game plays out like this than prepare to have ur mind blown

    I'm guessing its part of the pre-game intro. That might even be for a playoff or Super Bowl game. But they've definitely put a lot into this. I'm going to bet that the reason we haven't seen as many improvement in the past few iterations of Madden was because they've been dedicating a lot of resources to 18. I feel pretty good that this will be the best Madden ever feature wise. Hopefully with the different gameplay styles it will be gameplay wise as well.

    ID the Mike was a new feature that's been talked about quite a bit. MUT Squads is obviously new and very popular. There's also new WR/DB mechanics that were mentioned on Twitter.
