I can understand that you long for a College Hoop game it's big in the US, but the other "niche" Sport Games have mostly a following outside of the US wich can't be said for College Hoops, so a Non UFC MMA game can generate Sales outside of the US same for Rugby. The Game market is worldwide not confined to the US. That said i hope you will get a College Hoop game soon.

I still play 2k8 religiously with each new season. I'll update it and continue on without missing a beat. I hope 2k can release another one in the near future.

I absolutely agree. Even though I am from a country where College Sport is near non-existent, I really got to love the passionate and unique environment of College Sport, especially Basketball!

Apart from the game engine itself there is so much difference between a Choops game or a NBA game. It feels like a totally different sport experience.

We need another Choops as soon as possible. I would love 2k to implement their great atmosphere and presentation in a new College game. I might even play it more than NBA. Moreover the big advantage of a College Basketball Game is, that it's way easier to get your Franchise going over multiple years, since you can play a realistic season within 25-30 games, while with NBA you might go all the way with over 100 games.

In a way, its kind of a blessing for me that there is no College Hoops game. 2k8 was TOO good, and was a major distraction from my schoolwork. But I certainly would not be upset if they released a new one =)

Re: Out of Bounds: The Sad College Basketball Void

The cost of the NCAA license versus the profits from selling a College Hoops game are the big reason why we don't have a new college hoops game this year. Hoping the roster makers put together some good 2010/2011 CH2k8 rosters before November.

Great article. I'm very surprised 2K didnt pick up after EA dropped their series. I could see it making a return within the next few years. 2K needs to drop baseball and hockey and focus on their basketball games because thats where they dominate!

I'm hoping the demise of EA's franchise will lead to a more vigorous updating of the CH2K8 roster. Maybe we'll get a silver lining out of this gaming void.

I just don't understand why college hoops games don't sell well enough. NBA 2k sells buckets but, college hoops have so many more passonate fans.
