Madden sells well cause of its graphics,why dont over games use it

Like others have said, Madden doesn't sell for its graphics but for its quality.
The reason other EA Sports games are not similar is because they are developed by different teams within the organization.

Believe me, I get so frustrated at the presentation of Live and the baseball franchise when Madden is so cleaned up

Uh...no. Madden sells because they have the exclusive NFL license and there are no other football games available because of it.

Nope, they don't work that way.

I don't know much about the Xbox 360, but I do know that the original Xbox was essentially a PC. It's been a while so some of my numbers might be a bit off, but I've done extensive modding to mine and they're pretty flexible little boxes. They're about the equivalent of a PC with a Celeron chip running at 700mhz or so. The controller ports are actually USB ports with a different pinout. You can find converters, but if you're patient and can operating a soldering gun, you can make your own, so just about any simple USB control device can be plugged into an Xbox. If the device requires drivers and a helper program to run, it probably won't work on an Xbox though, just simple controllers. The most common Xbox mod is just simply replacing the hard drive with a larger one. The ones that came with the Xbox is like a 4.5gb drive or so. Some people install entire operating systems on it. A guy I knew once put Linux on one he had and turned it into an FTP/HTTP server. I mainly use mine to watch movies and videos that I've downloaded. By connecting it to my network, I can have the Xbox browse any computer's directories and watch (or listen to) any file I've got there, or burn files to DVDRs and take 'em anywhere.

I only mention all of that to show how flexible the Xbox is, and I can only assume the Xbox 360 is similar, I just can't bring myself to spend money to duplicate something I already have. I couldn't care less about the console games myself, they're generally more geared to the lowest common denominator users. That said, the Xbox doesn't run WinXP or Vista as an operating system, it has it's own operating system and instructions, so it's not just a simple matter of copying files from an Xbox or Xbox 360 disc into a PC and playing a game or vice versa. However, for some platforms there are emulators that let you stick game discs into your PC and play them, but emulators are always just a bit short of the real thing and don't always work.

There have been other football games in the past though, and Madden has always reigned supreme.

Although I'll always have a soft spot for good ol' Joe Montana's football for the Genesis.

if the game had great graphics then it would sell very well,basketball is the second most popular sport in america and it would definetly help if they got their graphics up to par

i think they should also include the Euroleague in it for next year

Nah, thats not going to happen. I remember back when I was a fan of Live, someone told me they can't include the Euroleague because of the licensing rights or something. That does suck because the euroleague was a great addition in NHL 06.

I think the success of Madden has a lot more to do with the fact that they don't change the whole damn game every two years. It's been a very consistent series. The graphics get a little better or different every year, they update the rosters, but for the most part they know they have a good game, so they're not constantly changing everything like Live, and adding all kinds of gay features, or changing the graphics so much that it isn't even recognizable compared to the season before.
