So you are saying UFC and NBA players are more willing go out and get permission to have their tattoos in the game? I bet those teams have some kind of system set up where they can easily get permission for tattoos, they probably do it through email or something. Other teams are just willing to work harder for to make a better product.

Promote the use of ink when you have a solid clientele base otherwise your market push is premature esp if this is not used as a selling point to the consumer.

To have only one player out of hundreds model his ink screams of a waste of resources. They should at least give generic ink to the others who have ink but have not signed waivers.

I think you were referring to me with the "impeccable timing" pharselogy. The tatts don't mean much to me, but to others they do for the authenticity, so, I wasn't so much focused on the tatts vs Kap in the news yesterday for signing a big honking contract and showing off the new player model.

Just to set everything straight, the marketing of Kap(he could have been w/o the tatts) was impeccable to me before E3.

Haven't players been on the front of Madden covers sporting their tattoos before? Going to be interesting to see if they show Sherman tattoos on the cover of Madden 15.

A photograph of a person with a tattoo is absolutely not the same thing as the artistic recreation of the art of the tattoo.

So. ...you mean to tell me that NBA players have to get rights from the artist for 2K to have them I'm the game?

It's an established risk, as demonstrated by the litigation that's been linked to a number of times across a few threads. I haven't read the source, but sounds like from one of roadman's earlier posts it comes from the NFLPA (who also don't allow swearing, drugs and alcohol I believe w/ their typical licensing agreements)

EA Sports...It's in the game.


Except when it's not.
