First patch for Madden 10 now available for download

The first patch for Madden 10 is now available for both the PS3 and the Xbox 360. The patch should download and install as soon as you connect to Xbox Live with the game in your system. Below are the details of what this patch includes, thanks to PastaPadre.

- Added Super Bowl and Playoff field conditions in Online Franchise
- Fixed false start griefing issue with online games
- Fixed video player issues (sometimes video would hang) in Online area
- Improved quality of uploaded video highlights
- Switched ranked online games to seven minute quarters
- Random stability fixes
- Added playable broadcast camera angle
- Tuned slider effectiveness
- Made fatigue affect ratings more
- Tuned broken tackle chances
- Reduced/removed holding on kick attempts
- Improved-toe drag catch logic
- General pursuit improvements
- Man coverage improvements
- Fixed double pass online exploit

One of the most noticeable and annoying bugs was the frequency of holding calls on field goal and extra point attempts, which has been adjusted. Online players will be happy to see the ranked quarters switched to seven minutes instead of five while still including the accelerated clock. I'm very interested to try out the new broadcast camera angle.
