        What is unconstitutional about putting up your product (in this case, the exclusive NFL license) for bid? EA won the bidding and gets exclusive rights to the license for 5 years. I don't think the Supreme Court will be hearing that case.
        The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

            Boycott should be the wat to go, but it's almost impossible.
            I think that what EA does should be illegal, too. What they do is killing the opposite distribution, just because they can't beat them with better videogames.

            First, I've never played an MLB game in my life, so the "MLB videogames chapter" is out of my speaking. But, looking at 3 games in particular - Madden, NBA Live and Fifa - it's not hard to say that EA sports versions of these games just suck compared to the other similar games you can buy.

            EA made the first great Soccer game. It was in '97 and FiFA '97 was one of the first games with multiple leagues, championship etc in the new era.
            Then, in 2000, Konami started to make a game that was way better than FIFA, ISS Pro Evolution Soccer.
            The game changed his name in PES (pro evolution soccer) and was so better than FIFA that there wasn't even competition.
            EA wasn't able to create a better game, their game was an arcade, and was far off from a real soccer simulation. So what they did? They buyed the licenses and PES was force to make a game where Chelsea is named London FC, Liverpool Meyerside, Inter Lombardia and so on.
            But still PES 3 had an amazing success, first because an editor allowed you to edit team and player names, second because FIFA couldn't have the exclusive for the national teams, so if a player played for his national team, his name was unchanged.

            After long years of battles, FIFA lost the exclusive licenses for some leagues because their game was so bad and the majority of the people (especially in Europe) only used PES. The soccer national leagues started to think that was stupid to give the exclusive license to the EA when everyone was buying the Konami product (Serie A, Ligue 1, Liga Spagnola, Bundesliga all were represented in the PES series).
            Finally, on 20th of october 2007, Pro Evolution Soccer will have the licenses for the most famous leagues in the world, ending EA monopoly.

            With Madden is the same thing. NFL 2K5 is still the best football game. 2K5 had gang tackles and other features that Madden didn't have until this year's version. And these features are still worse than the ones of a 2005 game. Look at a gang tackle in Madden and a gang tackle in 2K5.
            That's a very good highlight video of what NFL 2K5 is capable of:

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsv2eYapMLw

            In the NBA saga, NBA Live is just a bad game. NBA 2K7 is one of the best games I've played for 360, NBA Live 2007 is probably the worst game I've ever played for 360.
            And a similar case can be made for the NHL 2K vs EA NHL series.

            EA creates arcade. That's all they do. And when they realised they're losing againts other producers, they buy the exclusive licenses to kill them.
            Imagine what'd happen if they buy the exclusive license for the NBA!

            P.S.: Sorry for the grammar, but I haven't the time to re-read the post...

              I haven't bought a football game since 2K5. I've rented two versions of Madden since, but they were lousy. Team management options were the only thing that EA had over 2K Sports. Gameplay was always 2K's forte, especially on the defensive side of the ball where Madden has always been flat-out pathetic.

                Well isn't killing off the opposition the point of business? Business A may not be as good as Business B but if they have more money, why not go for exclusive. It's all about money in this situation and it makes sense, get the most popular sport in the country in terms of fans and boom! You have leverage over buyers as they don't have much of a choice. Add in their marketing abilities at EA then well, it's easy to see why they did this.

                Also, EA did the same thing with NASCAR. Sierra (makers of NR2003) made the best racing game ever with nr2003. However EA saw their potential and then negotiated to get an exclusive deal. NASCAR, in terms of ratings, is the 2nd most watched sport in the country (at least the Daytona 500 and Brickyard 400 are more watched than all but the Super Bowl, if I can correctly recall) and it's a business thing. Ever notice why there isn't an exclusive franchise to the NHL and NBA?
                Is that a rash?

                      Ive been playing a decent football game for the last week or so, Madden is fine you guys are just a bunch of nitpiickers. Also whose to say when the contract runs out that Madden doesnt secure it again just as fast.
