I can't remember where I read this but I do remember reading somewhere they are capped at two patches.

Devs aren't limited in the number of patches they can release, but a third-party developer is limited to two free patches.

NCAA '10 released a third patch.

EA paid the "fine" for the third patch, yes.

Seeing that we are half through the cycle already I would just prefer they concentrate all their efforts on 11.

Unless, of course, there are effective changes implemented between now and then regarding their quality control process. Time will tell I suppose.

This guy is right. I think thats where the ability to patch has hurt a bit. It seems you get two patches a game on a schedule. The first coming about two months after release the second two months after that. It's more a formula than an attempt to fix the game. Leaving you with whatever the complete game will be 4 months after release. In the case of football pretty much at the end of the season. I am thankful that they can patch a game but it seems like it's not really a last resort to fix a game that they made a mistake in. It's more an expectation. For example I feel the goal for next years game should be to make a game that does not need a patch. If there is a mistake they could do one. That being said I can almost garantee the game will have two patches and be as complete as it's going to be by december. One month before the super bowl.
