EA, Madden and ESPN

In light of John Maddens exodus to NBC next year, I wonder where that leaves the Madden franchise and the newly acquired ESPN license that EA gulped up for a nice lump of dough? Considering that there is a pretty big conflict of interest (ESPN being owned by ABC), do you think that maybe we have seen the last "Madden" game this year? Do you think that EA would use the ESPN commentators in place of Madden and Michaels?

This has already been discussed. Madden sign a deal with EA in the summer to continue the Madden franchise. He will also be providing voice commentary despite the EA license. There isn't any conflict of interest because Madden's deal with EA does not put him in any competition with NBC despite EA's use of the ESPN presentation in its games. Video games and broadcast television just aren't related in that way.
