He wasn't claiming to either. We are all simply saying the things that we think would make the game better. If they implemented these features you already said you would skip them, so they wouldn't effect you at all. So what's the big deal if they were added?

I agree with this but I think you are really underestimating the worldwide appeal of basketball. Football is almost only North America, basketball is all over. I would think as far as major sports go, it would be soccer, basketball and then football as far as popularity goes. I'm sure there's some metrics out there somewhere that would support this or refute it.

You would be correct. 2k had more world wide sales a few years ago under 1,000.000 units sold, but that would be more difficult to determine with digital sales, but probably not much has moved since then, either.

True, but in 2005 which some would argue was the peak year for video game football madden '05 did 4.5 million on PS2 alone, while 2k5 did around 2.6. NBA 2k isn't touching those numbers. Granted today's gaming environment is much different t with more stable online play and the rise in popularity of shooter games. But still, the demand is there it's the supply that is coming up short

Very true, the gaming landscape a lot since then and consoles have been streamlined since then.

That's not really the best comparison in my opinion. Didn't 2k sell at 20 dollars forcing EA to lower madden just to compete? The sales would surely have been inflated due to that in my opinion.

That being said, I do think improvements to madden would help sales but probably not as much as we all think.

As someone with personal friends and former colleagues who do work for Tiburon now and/or did work for Tiburon in the recent past, I can assure you there is not "a lot of downtime".

I know these friends and colleagues in particular to exceptionally talented people. Further, I also know the stresses that they willingly endure to pursue a career they love. To that end, the dismissive and ignorant notion that these guys and girls are just sitting around drinking beers and yucking it up is frankly insulting.
