Pretty much why Madden wont ever see competition again, sports titles cost too much to make and dont get the return on investment unless you're the number one selling title; no one wants to take a chance and loose money for a few years to build a brand anymore, they rather go after the guaranteed money.

NBA Inside Drive was a really good game and could have been great if given a few more years of life....the same for NFL Fever....smh @ Peter Moore and the EA power move.

Links was great. It's still to this day probably my favourite golf game of all time.

It's an easy choice if you're a publisher today wondering what kind of game you want to greenlight:

A) You pay lots of up-front money for league licensing rights, while competing in a relatively small market, alongside other franchises whose customers have 15 to 25 years of ingrained purchasing habits.

B) You create your own IP from scratch, own all the rights, and operate in a market that's much larger than the limited sports genre.

Option B makes the most sense, and the most cents. Especially with how much higher the costs are for making a 3D game in 2015 versus making a 3D game in 2005.

Re: Peter Moore Discusses Microsoft's 2004 Decision to Stop Making Sports Games

I have a PS4 and while I really enjoyed it the first few months that I had it, it has really lost it's appeal to me as there just are not enough sports titles that I like to play. I have The Show 15 and NBA 2K15 which are good games but the lack of an appealing football title, no college sports titles, and the constant catering to the arcade/online crowd, I am pretty much finished with my PS4. I will be allowing my son to take it to college with him and more than likely, I will just GIVE the system to him. He likes the role playing games as well so he will get way more use out of the system than I will.

Good thing that I kept my PS3 and the MANY sports titles that I have purchased over the years!

It's pretty sad when you think about it. I went from having multiple games of the same sport every year.
