Madden 24 Rumors

Madden 24 Rumors

Regardless of the time of year (and the quality of Madden itself), OS folks are always looking ahead. This year, there is a lot of talk about a lack of news and rumors about Madden 24.

When June hits, that’s when the Madden news really begins. But returning to the point about the lack of rumors, there’s not a lot to talk about as of now. Before official news started to hit last year, there were a lot of rumors about franchise mode, crossplay, how EA would honor John Madden, Madden coming to the Nintendo Switch, and Madden maybe replicating some tech that came to FIFA (HyperSense). We did end up getting franchise updates (albeit not as massive as maybe hoped), John Madden was on the cover of the game he pioneered, and FieldSense was a stand in for HyperMotion. It was a pretty standard year for being about 50 percent on the biggest rumors coming to fruition.

This year we haven’t heard anything about the development of Madden 24 beyond EA’s announcement of the closed beta and how those impacted by the cloud franchise issue in Madden 23 are getting an invite to that beta and half off Madden 24 (if they choose to purchase it).

EA is definitely in another transition period. New tech isn’t on the horizon but EA Sports College Football is a year out. It did get delayed a full year but development is in full swing now and how EA as a company is going to get back to handling two football games a year is going to be interesting. If one or both are bad, it’s going to ask a lot from consumers to support both year after year. The college football game will have that grace period where people buy it simply because they’re just excited to have it back in their lives, but that is fleeting.

While the lack of Madden 24 rumors is curious on some level, quality does seem like it’s going to matter more here because time is running out for Madden in some ways, even if those ways are just internal pressures.

GTA VI is currently expected to release in late 2024 or early 2025.

FIFA 23 On PS5 May Break if You Have Too Many Friends

FIFA 23 PS5 May Break if You Have Too Many Friends

There’s never been a better time to cut down on your friends list – and if anyone asks you can just blame EA!

EA Sports released a statement earlier this week confirming that it’s exploring stability issues introduced in it’s recent title update. The recommended solution? “Reduce your PS5 friends list to 100 or less friends and re-launch the game.”

Why the issue is occurring is unclear, but apparently it’s not something the development team at EA Sports accounted for.

Have you had any issues with FIFA 23 since the latest update? Are you a social butterfly with hundreds of PlayStation friends? You can read all the latest on the known bugs in EA Sports’ football franchise on the publisher’s Trello page.

‘The Last of Us’ and ‘Wii Sports’ join the World Video Game Hall of Fame

Video Game HOF

The Strong National Museum of Play has revealed this year’s inductees into the World Video Game Hall of Fame. There are four games in the class of 2023: The Last of Us, Wii Sports, Barbie Fashion Designer and Computer Space. 

The Last of Us is the most recent one of the bunch. Naughty Dog’s post-apocalyptic action adventure has rarely been out of the limelight over the last 10 years. A TV series based on the game debuted on HBO in January and it was a huge hit. A remake of the original game hit PS5 in September and PC in March.

Wii Sports arrived in 2006. Partly because it was bundled in with the massively successful Wii and partly because EVERYONE was playing it, the sports sim went on to become one of the biggest-selling games of all time.

The four titles are well-deserving inductees into the World Video Game Hall of Fame. This year’s other finalists were Age of Empires, Angry Birds, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, FIFA International Soccer, Goldeneye 007, NBA 2K, Quake and Wizardry. The Strong, located in Rochester, New York, will showcase the 2023 inductees on a permanent basis in a new World Video Game Hall of Fame space, which will open on June 30th.

MLB The Show

MLB The Show 23 Review

MLB The Show Review

Being that this was year 3 for The Show on next-generation consoles and Microsoft systems, the expectations was a clear step forward.

While constantly improving on what has been the best sports game running for a while is a big ask, The Show 23 developers put their best foot forward.

The Show 23 doesn’t change much of the tried-and-true gameplay experience, but the impact is meaningfully positive where tweaks happen.

The Little Things

Players can now properly assign a designated hitter, permitting things like one star serving as both pitcher and designated hitter.

This year the disparity between players on opposite ends of the Fielding rating spectrum feels more dramatic than ever. Fielders on the lower end are clearly slower to react off contact.

The green section of the throwing matter remaining static for years let seasoned players auto-pilot even difficult throws. Now that the green section moves, playing defense is more engaging.

The subtle little things keep the game feeling fresh.

It’s hard to poke a hole in the gameplay loop when so many different varieties of control options, settings and styles of difficulty present themselves to players.

Graphics and Presentation

The first next-generation effort didn’t present a big gap between versions, but last year’s was a massive leap.

This year’s game isn’t as big of a leap, but players will notice a bunch of new animations, especially with dives and trying to pluck foul balls that would otherwise land out of play.

Player facial expressions, jersey details such as accumulation of dirt, reflections of lights, shadows and arguably the densest crowds seen in sports gaming strengthen immersion in a way that properly matches the simulation style the series hopes to achieve.

The tandem of John ‘Boog’ Sciambi and Chris Singleton in the commentary booth for the second year isn’t stale yet, thankfully, and it feels like a ton of new lines make the cut.


As always, The Show shines with its presentation and simulation gameplay. The Show 23 is simply one of the best in the series.

Cheap High Rated Players In Fifa 23 Ultimate Team

Cheap FUT Players

Finding the cheapest rated players on the transfer market is key to completing Squad Building Challenges. Players want to make sure they aren’t paying over the odds on players. Especially when sometimes, players just guess what rating they need to get a requirement over the line.

Veteran FIFA players will know certain items to target, but prices can fluctuate based on supply and demand as well as available content. Prices usually increase when there are popular, repeatable Squad Building Challenges. Team of the Season is around the corner and it’s sure to include numerous SBCs including the Guaranteed TOTS for each league.

Here are the cheapest 88 rated players in FIFA 23 and how to monitor price increases and decreases.

Cheapest 88 Rated Players FIFA 23

The best resource to use is FUTBIN for monitoring player prices. There’s an option to select Cheapest Players by Rating. From there, players can monitor general player prices. It’s best to use this considering most players will generally assume Rare Golds are the best option no matter what. In fact, there are cheap promotional items with high ratings.

As of Apr. 20, here are the top 10 cheapest 88 rated players on the transfer market, per FUTBIN:

  • Michael Owen – Trophy Titans Downgraded Version – 28,500 Coins
  • Amath Ndiaye – Fantasy FUT – 28,500 Coins
  • Ruben Dias – Rare Gold – 28,750 Coins
  • Alessandro Del Piero – Trophy Titans Downgraded Version – 28,750 Coins
  • Keylor Navas – Rare Gold (Nottingham Forest) – 28,750 Coins
  • Marquinhos – Rare Gold – 29,000 Coins
  • Bernardo Silva – Rare Gold – 29,000 Coins
  • Patrick Wimmer – Fantasy FUT – 29,000 Coins
  • Marc Andre ter Stegen – Rare Gold – 29,000 Coins
  • Toni Kroos – Rare Gold – 29,000 Coins

Make sure you double check player prices on the transfer market as these prices will go up when demand increases. Investing when cost is low will help keep costs lower for SBCs when prices go up.

Madden 23 NFL Draft Program

Madden 23 – NFL Draft Program

Every April, football fans look forward to one event: The NFL Draft. Filled with mystery and with plenty of excitement, the NFL Draft is as big an event for football fans as the games themselves. EA decided to join in on the fun, releasing an all-new NFL Draft Program.

Madden 23 Ultimate Team has been winding down with its player releases, and EA is looking for exciting new content to fill the void. Honoring some of the brightest former and current NFL stars that were drafted throughout the leagues’ history, the NFL Draft Program comes baring an elite selection of player items, with seven of them baring 99 overall ratings.

The NFL Draft Program is a two-part feature, with the first set of players revealed yesterday, April 19, on Good Morning Madden at 10:30AM EST. Despite the reveal taking place on Twitter, the actual in-game release of the NFL Draft Program didn’t transpire until today.

Madden 23 – NFL Draft Program Details

The NFL Draft Program comes with plenty to offer in Madden 23. The biggest and probably the most popular feature of the new program, is that of the returning Mock Draft. For those that might not remember from Madden 22, or might be new to this experience all together, the Mock Draft feature in Madden 23 allows fans to earn NFL Draft Vouchers they can place into sets to fulfill a 14-pick Round 1 NFL Mock Draft.

To complete the Mock Draft, fans will have to play through Mock Draft Challenges with the maximum amount of challenge stars in order to earn these NFL Draft Vouchers. Once secured, fans can then place these vouchers into sets and choose which position they think will be selected for each of the first 14 picks in the NFL Draft this year. Keep in mind though that as soon as you select the position you think will be drafted, it will be locked in for good. So be sure to choose wisely!

Should you guess a certain amount of picks correctly, you will earn Mock Draft prizes. The more picks you accurately predict, the more rewards you will receive. Here’s the full list of Mock Draft rewards:

Mock Draft Pick Rewards

  • 1 Pick – 1,000 MUT Coin
  • 3 Picks – 83+ Overall Elite Player
  • 5 Picks – 91+ Overall NFL Draft Player
  • 7 Picks – 93+ Overall NFL Draft Player
  • 9 Picks – 95+ Overall First Round Draft Player
  • 11 Picks – Choice of 1 of 32 First Round Draft Players
  • 12 Picks – Choice of 4 of 32 First Round Draft Players
  • 13 Picks – All BND NFL Draft Past Heroes & Champions
  • 14 Picks – All BND NFL Draft Past Heroes & Champions plus 8 of 32 1st Round Draft Players
Madden 23 – NFL Draft Past Players

The first of the two-part NFL Draft Program drops consists of what Madden 23 calls ‘NFL Draft Past’ players, meaning all of these items are former or active NFL players that were drafted prior to 2023. This presumably means that the part two release will likely consist of the 2023 NFL Draft class members themselves, particularly seeing that some of the Mock Draft rewards consist of 1st Round Draft players.

Here’s the full set of Part 1 NFL Draft Past players you can now secure in Madden 23 Ultimate Team. You can acquire these new players by completing their sets, purchasing them from store packs, or securing them from the Auction Market. Down below is the list of NFL Draft Program Part 1 players that are live in Madden 23 Ultimate Team.
