All of the issues that 2k are going through today is because they took a huge financial gamble that didn't pay off. The TT/GTA stuff didn't help either.

Simple truth is that 2k's only hope was to be bought up. It didn't happen and they are just holding on. Hopefully they continue to have some sympathy from the sports they have left where they don't get priced out of business with licensing fees. And they'd really better bring their quality up. All three titles this year had issues. Be it freezing, crap framerates or just terrible programming. So for everyone who harps about EA and plays the sympathetic fan of 2k, let's not sugarcoat it. EA is on it's way up and 2k is really having some serious struggles maintaining it's spot. Their QC stinks and they've got old tech and not much money to upgrade...
I know Madden outsold 2k5. 2k5 However outsold madden on the xbox, and was in the top 10 2 times, where as Madden was in once with the other hanging around 13 or something. Thats not why i said check your sources.

NFL 2k (1.20m), NFL 2k1 (1.09m), NFL 2k3 (1.03m) all sold 1 million units. This dude claims 2k5 was the only one that did.

The fact that this guy came here with no previous knowledge to this forum and to how many time this "horse" has been "beat", kind of proves what most people are actually thinking. He didn't come here with an agenda, and there's no 2k5 club out there to piss off Madden fanboys at OS. He came with a thought that a good majority of fans that don't suck on EA's collective weiner are probably thinking. It's ridiculous that just because it's been mentioned before, that it's a void argument. BECAUSE of the fact that people mention it so often, it should be brought to light even further as a legitimate argument, and hopefully, a basis for the new EA team to get their **** straight.
I cant agree with you on the Madden fanboy thing here man. I would say the majority of posters here like 2k5. You need to look around a lil bit. You actually seem to be the 2k fanboy, but you haven't realised yet that most of the folks here love 2k also.

There's a different level of interaction and conversation over here dude. You aint on that level yet. Hang around for a bit and soak up some game, grown man style.

Your wrong on the Xbox, Madden 05 Sold 1.45M copies and NFL 2k5 sold 1.41. Madden also outsold NFL 2k5 on the PS2 by a 2-1 Margin. 2K5 also came out earlier and it was only $19.99 where as Madden was released almost 2 weeks later and was $50.00 but dropped down to $29.99. (www.VGchartz.com)

Madden 05 and NFL 2k5 were both lauded but Madden proved to be the peoples champ.
