EA Sports

I know a lot of people on here are hating on EA for this years Madden title, and there's much to complain about. The lack of realism and more arcadish style of play suited for 10 year olds and consistent flaws in the games makeup has caused EA to resort to putting out these rescue patches that get everyone excited about a "new" game. The true facts are, a good game, a game that you will keep playing is only a game that is good out of the box. An example is MLB the Show 09. This game had very little, if none gameplay issues, causing me to play the game all year long and never want to trade it in. This years Madden game plays ok, but everyone excepts it to be unreal. Take a look at the past. EA and 2K bought out individual sports licenses. 2K got MLB, and EA got football, everyone knows this. 2K, which was on the verge of creating a solid football game, lost their rights to a good game engine. Madden was always a solid game back in the day, without these patches that can save the gameplay and playability. They had competition. Now, in the next-gen time, they believe solid graphics and cool features, such as tackling and fight for the fumble will make up for terrible coding in the gameplay and lack of improvements in areas that never got fixed, e.g. pass interferences, offense and defense, passing is too easy, too many interception opportunities, lack of franchise depth, all these issues you know of. On the other side of it, once EA lost MVP Baseball, the company began to fall. They lost one of the main and upcoming huge titles. It's no doubt that MVP would be as big if not bigger than Madden today. EA now has to rely on FIFA, NHL, and even NBA Live is on the verge of holding down EA. Madden needs a new system and game engine to be successful. Why is it that games seem to just collapse after they have exclusive rights? No competition, which is why it's stupid for these "exclusive rights" that are now being used. I don't know if this would be up to many people, but why not SCEA put out a football title? They have one of the most solid games in the market today in The Show. EA is truly ruining the football gaming industry.

I started this to talk about possibilities of "new" football opportunities that are NFL related. Obviously, SCEA and Microsoft are the only other options as of right now. Does anyone believe that these two could come through if given time to create a better game than EA?

I don't think the exclusive license for baseball and football work the same. I believe baseball was the only one that was allowed to be created by a first party developer, ie SCEA. I believe that football didn't have that same deal

Re: EA Sports

I think Sony and Microsoft can do whatever they want regarding creating games for their consoles. But maybe I'm wrong. I think that SCEA and Microsoft can but maybe we can find something out on this for sure.

Re: EA Sports

EA has exclusive rights to the NFL, so you could make an All Pro 2k or a Backbreaker or a Blitz the league style game and that is it. Sorry, you will have to wait for the EA deal to simply expire and hope the NFL doesn't make another agreement with them.

Re: EA Sports

I really hope that EA does not get the license back. They don't deserve to have exclusive rights to the NFL. But that's just my opinion.

Re: EA Sports

If it wasn't EA, it'd have been Disney. It wasn't so much EA buying exclusivity as it was the NFL was selling it.

AGREED. Anytime a company gets exclusive rights, the quality of their product goes down

Re: EA Sports

Agreed that EA need some competition. So when is the rights set to be done with?
