If it's in the game, it's in the game. For real! Today is one of the best days of the year, when EA Sports NCAA Football 2011 hits shelves, with college football fans across the nation buying it. I remember back a few years ago, when I was a student still, I went at midnight, went home, put that game in, and played it all night! I know some people out there are probably heading to bed after pulling an all-nighter on it last night!
For the rest of us who have jobs early in the morning, don't have a midnight store in our area, or just like to sleep. We'll be getting the game this afternoon.
If you still need to order it, you can do it by clicking any of the links on this page (the EA logo at the top of this post is a link to the EA site), and you'll get directed to purchasing the game.
This is also going to serve as an open thread for those of you that have purchased the game, played the demo, etc. I'd love to know your take on the game. From all accounts thus far, this 2011 version is a step up from previous years, and will be a ton of fun to play.
Being able to be a part of this campaign with EA Sports was amazing, and thanks to those of you that participated. I honestly would not have been down with an endorsement like this unless it's a product I supported 100%. I've been purchasing this game for the past 10 years or so, and it's a must-buy on my list every summer.
Congrats to Jordan for winning a copy of the game, and I hope all of you can find a way to purchase this game. It is really a fun time. Plus if you buy now, you can get a couple of seasons in on your dynasty before the real football season starts.
I'll close with a message from our sponsor:
When you go to particular school or grow up a around college football you are more than just a fan. It’s who you are. We thought we could leverage this pride in your roots and show that ‘where you come from’ is more than just a statement about geography. By positioning NCAA Football 11 as a game that understands this pride and is authentic to these traditions, the takeaway should be that anything that is in college football is in NCAA Football11.
And this doesn’t just include game play (though that’s a huge part of it). It’s rivals and mascots; it’s legends and stories. It’s those things that are at the very fabric of the game itself. Of course the game is great this year as well. With authentic entrances, mascots and specific offenses for each team the term "where I come from" takes on a much larger meaning. While playing NCAA Football 11 is ultimately a great sports sim, it should also give you a sense of the pride and emotion one has for being a fan of a team they will never not be a part of.
Get the game, and have a blast!
