Thank you for replying, I guess that makes your post unnecessary, considering you said the same thing I did to his post. ;]

Not always true, better marketing means better sales in a lot of cases.

Then you start another run of sub-par products...case and point, EA Sports March Madness 08, no new game this year, it is NCAA Basketball 09.

haha....well to their credit, back when they were still a decent company this actually worked. When they changed NBA Showndown to NBA Live and when they changed Triple Play to MVP. But yeah, they actually changed those games, not just changed the titles.

Totally agree with you there. This years college basketball game shows potential, but that is the same as every year. Those games made changes for the better, and I have a feeling that they will eventually make a great game.

EA could have used that 21 million dollars to shore up sports titles including Madden, NBA Live, etc. (Hockey is actually pretty good). Watch the documentary 'Corporations' if you think EA is trying to help it's competition.
