EA: Madden 08 PS3 "Will Not Run At 60fps"
A major recent controversy on the Internet has concerned the frame rate speed of several EA Sports productions; NCAA Football 08 and Madden NFL 08. Initially, we learned these games would only run at 30fps on the PS3 and 60fps on the Xbox 360, but a variety of reports over the past few months have led us to believe the PS3 version of Madden will also run at 60fps.
However, the latest reports all came about from a recent interview with the EA team working on Madden, and the 60fps comment was misquoted. With so many people questioning the actual running speed of the game, we just had to get a once-and-for-all official answer from our EA contact...and we got one today. It was about as clear and straightforward as humanly possible, and it lays all rumors to rest-
"Madden will NOT be at 60 fps on PS3," said EA's Tyrone Miller.
Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean it'll be 30fps, but it probably will be. As we all know by now, NCAA Football 08 currently runs at 30fps, and it's widely believed the 360 version - and its 60fps speed - offers a better experience. We honestly hope the speed won't be such a big issue with the PS3 version of Madden NFL 08, but it looks like it might be.
