    Cheers for the find kriso! Wow that is a really good article. It started like it was going to be mostly about the rugby game but they mostly talked about the AFL one. He said a lot of things that have me optimistic:

    "And for every iteration of our game, there will be something that is going to be perfect. For the AFL, it is going to be about the speed of play, moving the ball, and fun. We're going to make the first one really fun, setting the controls for the rest of the franchise."

    "The designer is actually sitting there watching football all day every day working out the tactics like coaches do."

    "We're pumping out stuff that is photo-realistic. It looks so good, and when you come in tight you see expressions. The eyes of our players follow the ball and other opposition players. It's those little things where you can tell players are looking at the ball, it's huge. EA couldn't do that on the PS2. It's something that requires processing power."

    Hopefully there is some truth to statements like these and it isn't all marketing lies.

    Also I am pleased (as a PS3 own) to see that they are working on the PS3 version first and then adapting that to other consoles/pc. This should mean we don't get a buggier version than everyone else (e.g. Fallout3)

    The one concerning thing he said though was "We've been working on it [the rugby game] now for over nine months and it's far more progressed than Aussie Rules." Not a good sign!

    Just noticed that the article says the interview actually took place last year. So maybe it isn't that big a worry that (at the time) the rugby game was more progressed than the AFL one.

    Interesting to see that they're focussing on one thing each year, speed this year, marks the next....could be interesting game play in some areas.

    I don't mind this idea as long as (1) they get their priorities right (and it looks like they do with ball movement and strategy apparently being the focus this time) and (2) the things that aren't the main focus are at least competent.

    It said something like we have progressed more on the NRL game than the AFL game, and they have 40 guys working on the NRL game, and 20 working on the AFL game, next year boys, next year for sure..

    BigAnt need to get permission from the publisher first. Once it happens I'll give you guys more details.

    Not like I didn't say it...

    Really can't quite get what they're getting at overall. A lot of that interview is basically word-for-word of what we've seen before.

    But I can't say this fills me with confidence "Yeah. I hate to say this to fans of each of the sports, but the difference between those codes is just the animation and the AI (artificial intelligence)."

    There's so much more difference between NRL and AFL than AI and animations. It's like they're saying that any sport played in a stadium is the same with just a few changes here and there. I really hope they're going the right way with this. The speed, the tactics, the physicality, the fact that there's way more going on at any part of the ground at one stage than in NRL. All of that is more than just AI. I just really hope that both games can have a real individual feel to them and not just feel like the same game in a different skin.

    Would like to think as well that now the NRL game is just about or is done that they'll migrate the 40 that have been working on that title over to the AFL game to fully polish it up.

    Really cant wait to play. good news they are going to announce something also. Hopefully they don't rush it and produce quality AI,and needs to have some replay factor to through multiplayer.

    We get around 100 emails a day asking this! Had someone ring up and leave a suicide message the other day saying they're so depressed they're going to just top themselves - at least some of you guys are giving us a laugh - If I could tell you a release date I would.

    The interview with Jason at The Age was around a year ago (from memory), excerpts from that tape have been run three times so far.

    I can tell you that the game is fun to play, and I know you all expect me to say that so I've given an invitation just today to Anthony at BigFooty to come into the office and have a go of it whenever the publisher allows it.

    Cheers,

    Ross.

    Can i come too lol. So I assume this means you don't have a date set for when you make the game official and release some info. Until then EB keep telling me that no AFL game is being made >.<

    Cheers for the info though. Now back to playing AFL live premiership edition...

    Maybe... I mean Adelaide are my second team (if you can have such a thing!) - I sat there at the 97 GF and heard the boos when Adelaide came out and thought, hey these guys are *nearly* as hated as Carlton..... :)

    hmmm well the aim was that we wanted it to be a fun game and I'd like to think we are delivering, especially the online multiplayer. I was playing 4 vs 4 via Playstation Network yesterday and the action off the ball to protect the ball carrier was awesome.

    I can't do/say much more right now, frustrating for all of us - I'd love to show some of the player cameo's - every player of every team has been photographed and modelled.

    There will be an honest report from someone at BigFooty who will play the game in the near future, at the moment that's the best I can offer.

    How did you manage including Ling without the GPU of the consoles frying?

    Will there be an editor?
