Nope it wouldn't & won't happen plus Microsoft is Evil they try to buy out everything to ruin the market which is why I'll never support them..

EA won't do it because Madden Belongs on all consoles it's not our fault Microsoft doesn't make A baseball game they do have that option since there is no exclusivity on it.. Microsoft just refuses to make a baseball game so if people want one on Xbox contact Microsoft they can easily make one like Sony does.

However Madden will remain on ps4 & all consoles so I wouldn't worry there.

Besides there is no way in hell that the NFL would only allow a product as huge as Madden only be allowed to be made on one system because they would lose billions & NFL only cares about making $$$$

Seriously the NFL would strip EA of the License before they would allow that to happen too much $$$ to be made which they would lose..

so sorry But Madden will never be exclusive to just 1 system.

Have a good weekend..

I don't understand why everyone keeps saying the NFL would lose money this way.
The exclusive license is a straight cash payment, does NOT depend on sales at all.
The NFL doesn't give a rats behind how well or poorly Madden sells, they got their money, and they'll keep getting it as long as EA fears competition.

I have no evidence to refute this... But holy hell... if they didn't negotiate royalties for each unit sold above and beyond the flat fee, then NFL licensing lawyers are goddamn idiots.

I agree with Deuce, I just don't see Madden just exclusive with MS if this rumor ever pans out.


I would love if this happened tho. I game on the PS4 and abhor the current madden. If this deal would allow a PlayStation made football game by the makers of The Show. It would be a win in my book.

Id happily be willing to give up every EA game on the PlayStation if that happened. But it wont.
