I was playing my friends copy in the morning then went in later to get my copy. While I was there I played NCAA on PS2 and had a seizure right there on the spot because the game was so horrible. Poop on EA.

I just wish the game would fly on to the shelves in my area. None of the stores near me have it yet.

Ive had a couple people online tell me after playing ESPN, they realized the trash that is NCAA.

Really, are you saying compared to previous versions, or just as football games go?

I picked mine up today. If I didn't put 5 dollars down on it yesterday I most likely wouldn't have gotten it, cause my friend went to Gamestop earlier then me and they didn't have any left, he didn't reserve it.

it took me three stores to find one, but it seems that either best buy carried more of them than my local gamestop, or less people preordered there. (probably the latter).

our local EB had a huge crowd inside, fortunently people didn't realize this one dude was working the other line... I snuck by and got my copy in like 1 minute :)

Amazing game... I suck at it.

Get serious. You can get a review from IGN, Operation Sports, GamePro, Gamespot, etc, etc, etc..

I picked it up yesterday at EB (I prefer Gamestop, but they sold out). It is a very popular game right now. When I went in EB I told my friend "They have it" and the clerk said "You want ESPN right?".

my local eb presold every copy that they had coming in, so if u waltzed in w/o a preorder receipt, u walked out mad.....

keep in mind its not even time for training camps for the NFL, and i stand by my statement that xbox gets great games in bunches, and we are only at the tip of the iceberg

Casper told me to turn off dolby digital in the dashboard. I dont have dd so it doesnt make a difference to me. Once I did that, I didnt have any problems getting into games.

I had a problem last night, between 8-9pm pacific time...The ESPN server was down and I couldnt do anything online!!...
Everything was OK an hour later...
I m concerned about the leagues...Folks drop out and youre left with no opponent...the administrator is slow in releasing the schedules...so far, only 1 game has been completed in the 2 leagues that I play in...
