Major NBA Game Announcement Coming Tomorrow

GameCentric has the scoop.
"The NBA will make a "major announcement" concerning the details of their future in the video game business, according to NBA Global Merchandising Group Senior Vice President Sal LaRocca and the NBA Electronic & Interactive Licensing Senior Director Greg Lassen. The teleconference is scheduled to take place tomorrow, March 22 at 12:00 noon eastern time."

Im getting tired of companies buying exclusive rights for sports leagues. Im guessing EA racked up the nba for the same reason they racked up the nfl, they were forced for the first time in many years to lower their game prices from the baseline of $50 and they got scared. Nba live started off as 40 then dipped down to 30. The sad thing is its the consumers who end up the losers in all this. It was cute and all when they said "the nfl came to us with the deal", but lets see if their little covering excuse works with this one(BTW if its visual concepts who got the exclusive rights, they are just as bad as EA)

I dont think its EA who will get the exclusive rights and I hope they don't. Lets not forget Take-Two has some money of their own.

I'm surprised the contents of this story have not been revealed yet....we knew about the NFL and MLB deals weeks before there were made official.

Re: Major NBA Game Announcement Coming Tomorrow

Recall there was talk before about them splitting up the rights, a sim title to one company, an arcade style title to another. I hope they go this route, and let us see NBA 2k6 and NBA Street V4, since obviously we're gonna get stuck with less games next year, but that'd be the best combo.
