Deutsche Bank analyst Jeetil Patel believes that investors are giving EA too much credit and that the declining sales and average selling prices on titles like Madden is "troubling."
Pro Evo 2008 is the WORSE PRO EVO EVER and still way better then Fifa 2008!
When does that NFL License run out?
Sony should pickup a license from the NFL when it does.
I'm hoping next year 2k game will be better! If they make it that is...
Umm but didn't Madden 08 make a few record sales or something? Was never a big Madden/football vg fan anyway so.
I'd be more inclinded to get a Madden game if I knew they spent time and effort into it. You know maybe take 2 years making a game rather than recycle the game put a new cover on it.
Peter moore will be off to destroy Nintendo now.
That was funny.
Madden 08 = Madden 07 w/ updated lineups. Biggest disappointment of the year IMO. I'm never buying an EA game again.
have fun NOT playing BF, Crysis, ANYTHING sims related(spore), or burnout.
Well EA didnt make Crysis and Battlefield 1942. Not sure about burnout
we can only hope
But EA make so many quality titles like My Sims.....and Sims Societies...and Sims Castaway!
I assume you're being sarcastic. That's all they do is recycle. I mean, has Tiger Woods changed at all??? A few different poorly rendered courses and the same horrible looking characters and game play. I normally wouldn't be so hard on a company but they make a ton of money and continue to put out poor, uninspired products. When is the last time an EA game was exciting?
I haven't enjoyed an EA sports game in some time. I actually can't tell you the last game from them that I liked enough to buy. They especially lost me with the whole Madden debacle. I think that actually rubbed most people the wrong way. I would like if EA Big can get a next-gen SSX. Those games were fun.
your absolutely right. when was the last time a E A game was exciting?
last time I was excited over a cold refreshing E A game was need for speed underground before that need for speed hotpursuit 2 prostreets I had to seriously rush it back to my local retailer like my a$$ was on fire for a refund (sense of humor)
what they need to do is settle down in the think tank room come up with good exciting Ideals and slowly design it with real gamers in mind.
heck they should do a servey ask REAL gamers that spends 12 to 14 hours playing what they would like to see in racing games to sports games. and take their time developing it (two year process) that might re-focus EA back on track. no one wants a cheap half done product. Im sure E A exec. would'nt go to lexus or to a farrari car dealership and buy a half runing farrari so we gamers should be treated with the same respect give us a fully loaded complete sports and racing game. and if the graphics on the next need for speed and madden football is not up to clarity like G.T. 5 E A will surely lose it big time!!! all other video game developer after G.T.5 come out need to step up to the plate cuz polyphony raiseds the stakes higher.
