Re: NFL owners to vote on five-year extension with EA Sports

It seems like the deal is in place and just needs owners stamp of approval. In reality, no way it doesnít get extended. Madden has brand recognition and sole licensed NFL game, and has always sold well commercially. So no real reason for them to shake things up. EA has the resources to offer a crazy deal for NFL to extend exclusive license. So the 2k partnership could just be a way to extend NFL market in game sphere and bring in extra revenue.

I just hope it isnít the exclusive license and just the regular NFL license. I really donít want to be stuck with another 7 years of Madden being the only ďsimulationĒ football game option.

If that's the case, then by next week we'll see Madden's current deal get extended. I hate to say it. I don't see owners caring about video game competition. Madden has shown it can maintain status quo. If Madden is willing to pay a lot more for exclusive license(which it can afford), then I don't see owners not extending deal. Only way they wouldn't is if they feel other companies(2k) can bring in more money open with an open license.

Re: NFL owners to vote on five-year extension with EA Sports

This makes me more sad than it should. Amazing we will be 20+ years out from original exclusivity deal with EA with no end in sight. I actually preferred Madden back in the day to NFL 2K but things have gotten really really stale to say the least with Madden.

If we still have lifeless sidelines next gen I will not buy anymore Maddens as over-reactionary as that sounds. No excuse with the power of next gen to not have realistic sidelines and crowd.
