Another blow for PC gaming: EA drops PC version of Madden '09

Outcries for and against the belief that PC gaming is dying are a dime a dozen these days, but a new and unusual PC deficiency is raising the question all over again. [Front page...]

Who doesn't prefer Frank Caliendo's take of him over the original Madden?

Its kinda sad, if you were about the real hardcore team management then the PC version was the best. I remember when I was in the dorms and my friend had 04. We installed it on my laptop and played for like 4 hours every night until our franchise hit the maximum year limit (around 30). We had some EPIC 1v1 games too. The great thing about the PC version is the downloadable rosters and fast simulation times. Simulating a season on the Wii (my current version) takes forever.

This has been a long time coming though, it seems like they have been putting less and less effort into each PC release (and each console release for that matter).

Madden 09? LMAO.

EA FINALLY making good on their promises to restructure and stop releasing rehashed games.

Finally - maybe EA will actually release something a bit more original now?

I just don't see any of this as neccessary or caused by anything other than greed...

Who creates these games? Who decideds what PC Hardware will be required to run them? Who put those requirements beyound the average pocket book? (or at lest beyound my sub-average pocket book!)

Some crisis! LOL

Scale back on what it takes to run a PC game so that a two year old box can handel thinghs nicely again...Remember when that was true?

No more death of PC gaming...Unless of course...things aren't as stright forward as they seem....and when are they? ":O}

In a way I'm a little upset; While I dont like the fact that EA really hasnt done anything different year after year (though 07-->08 was a nice switch) I still hope they do roster updates for the PC version of 08 (highly doubtful)

On the upside, with 09 not on the radar soon; this means that the server's wont be shut down until the next installment actually hits the PC. So when 08 prices go down, it might be a solid buy.
