Re: Why Is Madden Still Not Available On PC At This Point?

Piracy was and is a weak excuse, as most who engage in it probably weren't intending to buy it in the first place. If the choices are download it or skip it, then it isn't a lost sale.

On the other hand, if a lot of people are skeptical about paying for it and choose to download it (as a try before buy, or just a try before buy that never winds up resulting in a buy), then perhaps you have an image and reputation problem you need to work on as a company to instill a bit more confidence in your customers. If as a large corporation you are worried that people who will wind up disappointed with your product didn't have to shell out cash before being disappointed, then it's a pretty sad state of affairs.

The more sensible reason is the market just isn't there for the effort required. Blaming piracy is a cop out. Piracy never stopped a good game selling well in the history of gaming, as far as I'm aware.

I will never purchase another Madden game until one of the following occurs:

1) Madden becomes something that can actually rival the overall game-play/franchise/etc. of NFL 2K5


2) Madden becomes available on the PC so people like me can MOD the hell out of it.

Until one of these two happens, EA will NEVER get a dime from me. I would even be willing to pay upwards of $100 for a PC game or a great Madden on the console. How about THAT for a reason?

It's up to EA to prove to me that they deserve my money, but as of right now, they don't deserve a single cent.
Ah, true colors.
