The lights are on
EA Sports has dropped the first details and screenshot for NCAA Football 11, and the changes made to the upcoming title – while some are desirable – are decidedly in the "minutia" category.
If there are any new, mind-blowing features for NCAA 11, EA Sports isn't talking about it just yet. The game's producers sat down with ESPN and ran through some of the title's talking points. While there definitely is some fan service in what they're doing, none of it looks to be a game-changing.
NCAA fans: What do you think?

NCAA Football 11 details: It's going to be an NCAA-themed football game with minor cosmetic fixes over NCAA Football 10. Woo-hoo, thanks for the announcement EA.
if its from EA sports no thanks..
Same game, different year. If they could even get this game to being as full featured as the previous year's madden release I would accept that.
Sounds like $60 to update rosters. Why can't sports games take a year off and make real changes to their games, really make it worth dishing out the amount of money they charge?
How about DLC roster changes in the off years for $10?
About *** time the formation subs return. That NEVER should have been removed from Madden or NCAA.
I buy a new football game about every other year or so. I have NCAA 09 so it's getting close to that time to invest in a newer game.
Garbage. NCAA and Madden are just trash...usually nothing new until a few years later. EA ticks me off for buying out football series. NFL 2K5 wont be beat in my opinion til EA lets go. NFL 2K11 and a possible NCAA Football 2K11 would just destroy EA's horrible football games, just like NBA 2k vs NBA Live. Is that why they had to buy out the football series? They scared? Until then, I'll keep dreaming of playing future 2K football games ever again...
ALL YEARLY SPORTS GAMES SHOULD BE BOUGHT FROM BESTBUY. THEY HAVE A PROGRAM WHERE FOR $5 YOU CAN BUY INSURANCE ON THE GAME FOR ONE YEAR. YOU CAN RETURN IT FOR ANY REASON INCLUDING IM DONE WITH IT OR I DIDN'T LIKE IT. SO IT'S PERFECT FOR SPORTS GAMES THAT COME OUT EVERY YEAR. FOR THE PRICE OF FIVE DOLLARS DOWN ON NCAA 10 YOU CAN TRADE IT IN A YEAR LATER FOR NCAA 11.
SAME FOR MADDEN, NHL,NBA LIVE ETC....
Formation subs finally return!!! I also love how it takes bama winning a national championship for them to fix the numbered helmets!
OOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo....WOW! helmet sticker improvements! That makes me wanna buy this game! Not...
I think sports games need to take a hint from Bioware's Cerberus Network and just have an entire channel dedicated to a particular sports title that is constantly updated with stats instead of this bull$h!t of a new game each year. They're not making huge leaps anymore, cut it out
Can we have a mini game to see how fast we can have Lane Kiffin run from UT to USC?
This was useless info! I agree with most folks when I say the changes could've been offered as DLC for NCAA 10's disc. EA knows the majority of consumers will buy a new copy each year. Until we show EA that we'll no longer pay full price for corny updates, this will continue until we're dead and gone!!!
Eh, I'll probably just give it a rent for a few achievement points again.
I too didn't realize that were never refs on the field before.
This looks like its going to be good but..... halo reach will be better... better than modern warfare 2 and it will be game of the year best halo yet yo
@Anthony Moreno I couldn't agree with you more. One of the reasons why I bought Madden last year and passed on NCCA Football. This year I'll prob buy NCCA Football and pass on Madden...but if FIFA still has the replayability come this summer I may just pass on it all together. Overall problem is that EA and other companies won't do DLC updates for a low price because too many people continue to do the stupid thing and buy the new game every year. Perhaps when most gamers stop fueling EA's profits, they will give in and give us a DLC upgrade every other year.
"On-Field Refs: I never even knew they weren't there..."
Hahahaha I never did either. Sweet addition? Alls I can say is there better be more to this, or I'm sticking with my NCAA 10.
Does recruiting still suck? Cause that's pretty much why I haven't enjoyed an NCAA game since 08.
Great screen shot I am looking forward to it.
