this story sounds more believable... ^

I think EA is actually in 2nd behind Activision after they merged with Vivendi.

Isn't this the same EA that's currently in financial trouble? They won't be the largest gaming company for much longer, if their quality, and certain ethics don't improve, thankfully.

I remember NBA 2K on the Dreamcast. That was VC's first foray into basketball if I'm not mistaken and on their first try completely blew the crap out of EA's NBA Live.
