After reading these discussions and thinking about things, I think I will wait to see the reviews and reactions here to decide if I will buy the game. Right now I'd say my decision to buy it is swaying in that direction but I will need to see what the game looks like upon release. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how everyone likes/dislikes the game...

honestly as a guy who no longer has a next gen console anymore (as of 2017) I quickly turned to madden 08 and have enjoyed there many mods (Heisman, FF, CFL, High School) and I thank the Madden 08 community for what they've done. but they can only do as much as this old game lets them. With Madden 19, graphics are 100x better than we will ever be able to make it. gameplay is arguably better (in my opinion and for many it is) and for those who do think that gameplay needs fixing thats where the modding community comes in. this just reminds me of NBA 2K14, that game was the most modded sports game I've played but since next gen there hasn't been mods like that ever since but they still do little things. small things that people want like mouthguards can be modded in and in time modding will no doubt get better. also there are so many benefits for people who edit rosters with NZA or things like that, now people who edit rosters have an in game draft class editor to work with and now maybe the ability to make cfs and make it more realistic and these are things that i can think of right now. honestly with this release I think that we as a modding community should give ea a big thanks and support the game cause even if this is there last try on PC with this game we could do stuff for years to come.

We're already limited out of the box.

Its nearly impossible to replicate Walshs' West Coast offense. There's only a dozen or so split back plays in the game. I'm not sure the far and near packages were in at all.

Right from the start, we need a playbook editor :D

Since Madden 19 will release for PC, will you guys still do mods for Madden 08 PC, or do you guys want to move on to Madden 19.

I'd guess that it will depend upon what happens when the game comes out in August. Could be impossible to mod, or it could take a long time if we have to painstakingly go through all the files and make discoveries. These guys have been modding 08 for many years and I'm sure there will always be someone doing it...

I've stated a few times already that I will continue to mod 08.

I stumbled on this during a web search;

The shots of the Battlefront Mods are pretty amazing, particularly the Endor shot.

Frostbite has been cracked already. That's a good sign, I would think.

In today's eras of online updates and all, it is an outdated model. It worked in the 90s and early-mid 2000s when games were acquired and installed offline, but now I think they can do one release per engine cycle and just update and insert things as needed.

Thanks and I will be enjoying every mod that you continue to create for 08 regardless to whatever happens with EA release(s).

Madden's former Creative Director Rex Dickson once mentioned discussions of Madden as a service.

The new leadership likely is still at least thinking about going that route since their major cash cow (MUT) wouldn't be affected one bit by doing so.

Likely the biggest in going away from an annual release obstacle would be getting the NFL. EA would have to definitively prove that their subscription revenue would equal the $60 a pop annual sales figures.
