Same here. I'm afraid though that in the rest of my lifetime all I'll have is Madden.
Sad thing is I'd still buy both if 2K was still around. So it's not like EA was losing my $ due to 2K.
Just like I used to grab all baseball games. As a sports guy I simply couldn't resist seeing what each had to offer.

Re: EA Still Owns the NFL License Exclusively

There's no shortage of completion in Madden online lots of negative things can be said about Madden but shortage of opponents isn't one of them. And this year the presentation and emotion looks to be much better, at least on next gen systems..

I posted this in the 2k football license thread, but why doesn't 2k make an NCAA football game?

I doubt anyone is going to touch a college game until the O'Bannon case is 100% resolved.

And on topic, EA and the NFL are never going to get rid of the exclusive license.

Re: EA Still Owns the NFL License Exclusively

Don't see the exclusive license every going away until leadership at NFLPA / NFL changes in key positions. If you guys remember NFLPA gave Madden team a sweatheart deal, saving them millions, even though their goal should have been to represent he NFL Players and maximize their profits/returns. When you see emails like that come out it leads a person to believe there's collusion and possibly back door shenanigans going on. As long as the key players that pushed this through (and no idea who those people are) are in place, and EA is able to get the NFLPA to put EA's interest ahead of the football players, this license agreement will never change.

Just because people own/play it doesn't necessarily mean they bought it new. I've bought nearly all EA Sports game used, save for 10 / 11 when I mistakenly believed they were trying to fix/change the game. Last I looked Madden sales have remained fairly flat over the years, when they should have been rising (like NBA2K sales). Haven't seen sales figures in a two or three years now. Has that changed?

Get what you're saying though. Money talks.
