Sorry for the seperate thread but this was definitely the deciding factor in my purchase. I know I just checked this listing a day or two ago and the credit wasn't their at the time so it is fairly new. This is supposed to be truly limited so if you're not sure buy (preorder, no charge until it ships) now and think later

I would actually do this if it wasn't for the NFL labor dispute still in progress. I won't support them with any type of related purchase as long as that is still an issue.

Compared too... non tangible DLC and an artbook? I'd rather have something that is of actual physical value.

I buy NCAA and Madden every year, and I've had the Hall of Fame Edition preordered since it was announced. Good to see Amazon add the $20 credit to it. I love Marshall Faulk.

Ugh... Cards are Panini? That's weird... Why didn't EA go with Upper Deck or Playoff or something? I haven't picked up Madden since 2006... If they ever have full multiplayer seasons with a fantasy draft, I'd be in... I LOVED the way the NFL Fever did it back in the day where you played a full season and then the playoffs and got a SB trophy on your in game profile...

Blah. One of the worst CE's I've seen. 30 Bucks more for questionable content, and most of all?

Give me something tangible to the game.
How about classic rosters and stadiums exclusive to this edition?
The arcade version as a bonus?

I could come with a bunch of ideas instead of some worthless trading cards and a pretty box.

If you have such great ideas, why aren't you working for EA?

What stadiums could they have that's exclusive? Maybe recreate the Vet so Wendell Davis could blow both his knees out again?

The teams play where they play. Who really thinks playing a game at the rose bowl is so cool that it's worth the time and effort and would move units.

Nope. CEs need more physical stuff and less dlc.

i would love to buy this, but there is no real benefit u get from HOF edition. Signed card is useless to me, and $30 for booster packs for ultimate team?? F NO, its not worth that much, maybe $70? or all add ons or future DLC's should be included in this, and make it $80. for $90, keep it as it is, but add 2 tickets for an actual NFL game (if there is one).

other than that no way, i have pre-order the actual game for $35 using $25 of credit, and i will get back $20 on top of that, which is what it actually worth. Madden does not improve that much every year, they should retail it at $40 to start with.

(just my opinions)

If he doesnt sign them, isn't it fraud?

If he signs 25 a minute it would take him 5000 minutes. Ouch.

Madden '11 was horrible. I'll wait to hear some feedback on '12 before I consider buying it.

I'm sure if I was, I would hear, "why didn't we think of that?" several times a day.

And yes, exactly that, let me recreate classic games in the old stadiums. Am I the only one who would want it?
I'm not against special editions, I bought the last Madden one that included old versions of Madden on the disc.
Give me something for my money, that's all I ask.
And to the guy that mentioned they should include some sort of DLC all access pass, Bingo! now that is what I am talking about.
But nah, how about some 5 x 7 glossy pics of John Madden walking the sidelines.

I want this, but this is frickin' expensive! $90! I hope there's enough copies left to grab at a price drop.

And while I haven't played many Madden games and don't want to sound like a Madden hater, playing '11 and remembering how things from '08 and before looked, I really do not see much improvements with Madden games graphically. The models just look like their previous generation counterparts and lack a lot of the fancy effects of current gen games. And some of the animations are completely off. On the PS3, I was playing '11 with a friend, and I "picked up" the ball from an onside kick. The ball was on the turf, behind my player's leg, then somehow climbed up into his hand after two steps. We watched this on replay several times confused.

That's how EA works.. If they put all the good shit in every year, they'd actually have to work on new features every year. By stringing it out, they have an endless supply of minor shit to tout every year while doing little actual work.
