While that constituency might not be concerned, obviously EA is or else they wouldn't be doing interviews with online communities; they wouldn't get their feelings hurt by comments from online folks; they wouldn't invite people from online communities to come play their game early, so on and so forth. So yeah while that group doesn't care, it seems to me that people at tiburon care alot what internet communities think.

I saw in another thread guys making excuses for how madden 15's animations dont look good because we are looking at them on compressed youtube videos. LOL.

Here is a compressed youtube video of AP2k8, why do their 7 year old animations look better than yet to be released Madden 15 ?



Since REX likes making challenges how about he show us some Madden 15 tackling footage / animations / OL/DL interactions that match or surpass some of the stuff we see here:



Also why can I send more that one man in motion in AP2K8 but still can't do it in Madden 15 ? Why can't we decide a blitz angle in Madden 15 but could in Ap2k8 ? Why can I hold more plays in my custom playbook in Ap2k8 than Madden 15 ? Why can I setup player packages for formations in Ap2k8 but can't in Madden 15 ? Why is there a around the league Halftime show in 2K5 but STILL NONE in Madden 15 ?

We can go on and on. Here is another challenge to REX play any 2k8 highlight video on youtube and play any Madden 15 video from where ever you want to get it at E3 then ask the crowd which game looks more next gen football.
Idk how anyone can look at these vids from over 7 years ago and wonder why poeple give Madden a hard time the way they do. Goodness freakin gracious.

I can't disagree.

One would think all of that concern would've translated into a lot of our wants having been met after all this time. That's not to say they haven't tried, but the success rate has been low at best.

Re: EA Still Owns the NFL License Exclusively

I was actually thinking about buying Madden this year again, but after this news, kinda woke me up again. Not supporting Madden 15 because I don't want it as the only option.




Funny thing is they actually sold better when they weren't exclusive. No idea why they don't understand their fans aren't happy with this exclusive. Put the money into the game and not into protection another company wont better you

I've been telling everybody on the forums,that the 2k football rumor was just that a rumor! I wish 2k was making a NFL football game,but we are stuck with EA sports for who knows how long : - ( I wish the NFL would not have a exclusive license with EA! When you think about it competition is good and it's long overdue to break the monopoly EA sports has with with Madden! I don't understand why the NFL has an exclusive license with EA! There used be a couple NFL video games to choose from at least if not more at one time! I don't remember anything bad when it was like that! I would think it would be a good for the NFL to have multiple company's making there video games! More games more money/revenue! How is that a bad thing? It benefits the consumer and the NFL! Everybody wins! Why is it the NFL is the only one with the exclusive license deal? I've never heard exactly what the reasoning is behind it a valid reason!

Yet, there would be people talking about how great NBA Live is, and how people want a perfect game. But you know what, if EA holds the rights forever, the people to blame for them still selling units, is US. Because as a whole keep buying it, and supporting it. We get what we pay for. Until people stop buying it (which lets be honest, won't ever happen) we will always get mediocre NFL football.
So we r stuck with EA for how many more years.C'Mon Man...
