  • A lot of people are curious when the first info on NCAA Basketball 09 will be out. News should be coming in the near future though I don’t know exactly when that might be. There is a community event tentatively scheduled for early September.
  • Right now there is nothing to report on Madden 09’s online play being improved especially regarding the disconnect issues so many are experiencing.
  • Word on what will be included in the second patch for Madden 09 may come as early as this week.
  • Could EA have purchased Euphoria, the tech behind Backbreaker? This report is hardly definitive but it is a possibility.
  • IGN also has the first hands-on preview of NBA 2K9. You can check out a teaser trailer for the game here. There is also the opportunity to take part in Q&A on the game at Operation Sports.
  • League Gaming has a look at the online leagues for NHL 2K9. There are a lot of improvements and probably shows what will be coming for NBA 2K9’s leagues as well. This setup definitely puts the “league” attempts by EA to date to shame.
