Umm.. yes to your asinine question? And they still sell TONS of copies.

Though I did ask the same question about JRPG's the other day.

Thanks for posting OP. I have NCAA 13 pre-ordered for $45 at Amazon so now I have to decide if the new rosters/features are worth the cost.

Online dynasty with friends makes this the most addicting online game I have ever played. We have probably played a hundred seasons or more, since they first introduced online dynasty a few years ago. Love it.

Does anyone know off-hand what the difference between NCAA '12 and '13 will be? If there really isn't any major differences, I'll pick up '12 instead of throwing down $45 for basically the same game. Thanks for the heads up, OP.

Honestly I played the NCAA '13 demo and wasn't impressed with any of the 'changes' made, if any. I usually bounce back and forth between Madden and NCAA every other year to at least make it feel a little fresh. I liked NCAA '12 better than Madden '12 though.

It seems like Madden 13 is supposed to be the superior product. However, with the Best Buy deal on NCAA 13 with the $10 Pre-ORder and pick, plus a $20 Pre-Order bonus, I will get both Madden/NCAA 13 this year.

Considering they don't have player names in the game, just some of the players jersey numbers will be different. That's about it. The box art looks different too.

They changed a lot of the passing mechanics in 13. You can now supposedly throw more than just the lob and bullet pass. They did more under the hood changes to things like recruiting, online playability and also added some new heisman mode. I traded in 12 after a week or two, it was fun but it froze on me after I played an epic hour long game. I still have 11 and play it quite a bit and didn't notice a big change from 11 to 12.

If your school is in the Big 12, SEC, or Big East, the updates to the schools in the conference.

How soon does EA shut down servers? I thought they did it pretty fast. Means online dynasty isn't really a selling point, unless something has changed since I last played NBA Live.

After '12 came out, I went back to try to play '10 but found out the servers were taken down. This was probably 10-11 months ago? So if that's any indication, the '12 version might be good for at least another year.

But '11 was when EA first implemented the Online Pass and since that is supposed to help keep servers up longer, maybe '12 servers will be up longer. But look at MMA and see that EA just wants your money without keeping up any servers.

I too have played many many seasons of OD in the last few years, and I will agree that the Online Dynasty is the best part, especially if you have friends to play it with. I bought this game at release for $60 and it was had a ton of bugs in it. The first weekend saw a glitch that prevented any OD from advancing to the coaching carousel (one of the new additions and a selling point for this year), and they released patches 1 month too late and those patches added more problems to the ones they supposably fixed. Probably only 2 months after release saw the end of any fixes, and we've been saddled with the game as-is since then. I am sure they will try to put those new fixes in the '13 version and hype it up to be "NEW AND IMPROVED" but I really feel that we should have been entitled to a playable game from Day 1 instead of being made as beta testers.

I regretted buying this Day 1, but for $10 it might actually be a good buy

If you aren't a release day football gamer then I doubt you would notice the difference. The people who say "lol just roster updates" are absolutely wrong. However, the differences from year to year are for the "hardcore" players and someone who just plays casually are not going to notice differences like being able to anticipate route breaks and corners who have their heads turned. All in all I think you would be happy with 2012 version.
