    Not that I know of, unfortunately. If you can get your hands on a PC though, this game is PERFECT for people love the franchise mode of Madden (draft, free agency, all the GM stuff) moreso than playing the actual game. Front Office Football is by far the deepest (text) football simulation available, period.

    I am sorry but I have had almost every Madden since junior high, and the biggest improvement in not only gameplay was from 2007/2008 (which felt and played like the exact same game) to 2k9. 2k9 is so much better, with the adjusting difficulty, I would be playing the game so much more if they just tweaked the passing game (QB either throws a touch or fastball throw, you cannot put a tiny amount of arc to get over the LB's hands and into the receiver), the franchise drafting parts (deeper scouting, actual life like events at the draft, value the scouting department more, etc.) and they need to allow you to change a players position in franchise (LB to DE, etc) and not delete his personal statistics (I am picky about that, that is why Henry plays CB for me instead of FS!!!).

    And lucky for me, I don't spend the money on these games, I can get all the 360 games for free!

    When It comes down to just playing Madden 09, I think it's great.

    I can understand how some of you are fustrated by the PS3 controller scheme. I was too, but I got use to it and I find it better than the PS2 version.

    It just takes time.

    i had stopped getting madden since about 2002 and played exclusively the ncaa franchise. recruiting and building up small schools to transfer as coach to a big school is way more in depth and interesting than franchise IMO. also the atmosphere and how players get impacted etc etc. bought madden 2k9. decent game....i use it solely for online play though. i'll probably go back to ncaa...just wish you could play online in ncca with the players' names.

    I love it, and the updated roster is great. It took off Pacman Jones not to long after Dallas cut him.

    When I had an xbox I rented NCAA and it was ok. I didn't like that all the players were numbers instead of names. I know it's because they can't use their real names but it would suck to have to change the names of all the players.

    you can download a modified roster file with names. the only thing is you can't use it for online play.

    Press "x" to hike the ball.

    Locate receiver you want to throw to.

    Press button of receiver you want to throw to.

    Not sure where the difficulty enters into it...

    Or if you use vision cone, you have to hold an extra button. Extremely complicated.

    Don't use the vison cone, I never liked it so I just disabled. I like the PS3 version much better.
