ummmmm if its real time don't you think he needs a helmet??? that is not realtime maybe when you are customizing your player you will have thise pics but the question is gameplay and real time stuff till you dont see all 22 guys on the field on a screen dont beliive squat.
he looks like he is checking out the cheerleaders..
Well there were 22 guys on the field with helmet in the commercial..
Just because it not IN GAME doesn't mean it's not REAL TIME. Real Time mean that the 360 hardware is actually rendering the image on the fly rather than just playing a video file. Many Many Many games have real time cut scenes where the actual graphics engine is used to render a scene on the fly that is not actually IN GAME and playable for the player.
We'll be seeing lots more of that with the 360 because the graphics capabilities will be that much more powerful. Not to mention it's easier for developers to just use the graphics engine to produce a cut scene, it's quicker and more coherent for the player, and it takes up less disc space.
With all that said there is no way to actually prove or disprove whether this is part of a pre-rendered VIDEO or REAL TIME.
Though considering that these aren't part of a commercial, the low poly count of portions of the model, the lack of graphical effect and the fact that there are lots of things missing from the scene it looks like a WIP image and I wouldn't be surprised if it was actually real time.
Madden 06 was the first Madden to NOT be released on the PS1... that means they're probably going to support the 360 version for the Next ten years, meaning you'll see Madden 2016 on the 360 down the road. It's really in their best interests to create the best engine they can for the 360 and do it as soon as possible that way they can continue to use it for the next 10 years without have to rebuilt it for future releases.
