Call me old school, but i still prefer the last gen versions. When I preordered, I got a look from both the gamestop clerk and the UPS delivery guy standing there when I emphasized I wanted the PS2version. I had to explain that I like the gameplay from the last gen game, and there's one GLARING OMISSION in every current gen version of NCAA CFB---you cannot turn coaching contracts "OFF" in the current gen games. (I assume it's that way again this year also).
I know it may sound weird, but it's very important to be able to turn off coaching contracts when playing my Bama dynasties. The coaching contracts & expectations are very lofty at Bama (similar to real life) and I just want to be able to play my video game without threat of being fired. If I have a couple of seasons where I go 6-6 for example, I do not want to be excommunicated from my favorite school.
I'm not sure when I can pick up my preorder, as this year's release coincides with my busiest week of the year, but I'm looking forward to checking out this year's iteration.
