Default Ea giving up exclusive deal for NCAA

http://www.gamespot.com/news/ea-agre...sivity-6388207


Even though it can last only 5 years it's still good to see EA losing some fights. I hope this means that after this year EA won't try to renew Madden either.

There's a huge difference in them giving up NCAA rights and NFL rights.. Everybody in the coporate world is happy with the deal.. Madden sells, and NFL likes it...

NCAA rights just seems like we're hearing the bell toll.. Know what I mean... After this last offering people are really ticked off...

That's one thing 2K did really well, make a football game (NFL 2k5 was one of my all time favorites), then the rug was pulled out by EA and the NFL! I'd be all over it if 2K would make an NCAA game next year

I'm not gunna pull any punches here... NCAA is one of the worst sports games I've ever played, so I have absolutely no sympathy for them or their monopoly. For such a big, rich company they take far too many shortcuts

Yeah! Who knows what kind of retarded glitches there would be? Fake bunt and swing = frozen defense and instant in the parker just like with the fake slapper

Why? I wish they did. They made arguably the best baseball ever made.
