For football fans, Madden is the game to get every early fall. This year, the Madden NFL 08 release is extra special for those on warring sides of the console superiority debate. EA Sports made it no secret that the Xbox 360 version of the game would be the best console version of the game that is capable of running at 60 frames-per-second.
Sadly for Sony faithful, EA Sports said that the PlayStation 3 version of Madden NFL 08 will run at around 30 frames-per-second – half that of the Xbox 360 version.
Although reviews of the game following its release on Tuesday indicate that the PlayStation 3 version of Madden NFL 08 isn’t unplayable due to its choppier frame rate, the Xbox 360 version is vastly preferred for its smoother animations.
“While we fully understand your frustration with the limitations the technology has placed against the video frames per second of the game play on the PlayStation 3 game console, it was out intent to put out the best possible with Madden across 10 platforms,” wrote Rob M. of EA Sports.
