Re: Why oh why do they remove things?

They need something to fix every year. Imagine they never took anything out? We would still be playing Madden 2005, which was the best game in my opinion and wouldn't mind roster updates every year for it. Why was Madden 2005 the best game? Because EA had competition. No competition = sub par games, but does EA care about complaints every year? No; why? Because people will buy it every year and keep complaining. I get Madden every other year to get my fix for an NFL game. Madden every year? No way!

The touchdown music/chant. It was great last year with the "were gonna beat the **** out of you" chant when a TD was scored by the Chiefs at Arrowhead.

Not a huge deal, but WTF, it was in the game last year and now it's gone.

The reason they remove stuff is unknown, Maybe they think they can recycle old features, Maybe they did it to make room for other stuff who knows.

The exclusive license doesn't necessarily cause this, but it does allow EA to get away with it. Think about it. If another publisher put out a game that kept adding features, without removing any of them, year in and year out, do you think that EA could get away with adding, removing, then adding those same features again ?

They remove things to compensate for needed space. Simple as that. If there was enough space to keep something like "The Extra Point" which I thought was cool but just needed some work then that would still be there.

The PS3 has BluRay....more space than what they can ask for.

and its not like they are a company that is worried about pissing off another platform, just so the other has more "features".

I mean they went ahead and released a 60fps Madden 08 on the 360, were as the PS3 version stayed at 30fps, but still lost legit 3D grass, high resolution player models, HDR lighting, etc.

so what is the excuse now?

They aren't taking stuff out on purpose. It's probably on the disc, but something went wrong in the code somewhere along the way, and the appropriate action isn't triggering the response.

But that isn't nearly as fun as "EA is mean for having the exclusive license."

Btw, exclusive licenses happen in business all the time, so there is nothing illegal about it.

ahh so they aren't intentionally taking small things out, they just can't do their jobs right.
