Gamestop in Waterford only got 3 copies, so made sure I reserved mine

Am kinda surprised that stores are only getting a handful of copies though. They're usually fairly popular games like, even among some non-football fans

I'd like to get a PS3 league up and running if there's enough interest. I'm sick of watching the Xbox lads have the craic. Here's a list of interest so far. Anyone I've left out?

got it for €30 off a Hong Kong seller on eBay so it might be a week or two before I'm ready for the next league (xbox) and hopefully it doesn't get stuck at customs.

did anyone else think the demo seemed really fast?

Played this game for the first time last week and my god I think it's a hell of a lot better than Madden 11. The tackling is drastically improved.

Xbox Lads: Gonna give it a week for everyone to pick up the game and get used to it. Then we will hold the fantasy draft. The draft will more than likely go ahead on either a Sunday or Monday with a 8 or 9pm start.

While the tackling has improved the game suffers from a uncanny amount of unique flaws which at times can be game breakers.

The invisible player one is quite bad.

Then you have the mother of all suction blocking with RB's who stay in to block.

It plays better then 11 but my god with the amount of flaws present it's also a step back.

Also apparently the Titans now play in New York according to Gus Johnson.

Have played 12 or 13 games on the PS3 so far and haven't come across any of the flaws yet. Kinda find the blocking to be a bit TOO good at times though, using Ryan Grant to easily break for 20 or 30 yard rushes against the Steelers on numerous occasions

The commentary is terrible though. Gus Johnson is just awful. Think I'll be throwing together my own playlist on the laptop and muting the game
