NFL 2K13 Comes One Step Closer to Reality with Take Two Sales

GFB writes: "Another step towards NFL 2K13 seems to have been made. As reported back in late January, rumors have been swirling around Take Two (T2), the parent company of 2K Games and 2K Sports, that preparations were being made to bid on the NFL license in 2012 once EA's exclusivity agreement ends."

What's the big deal about the 2K series? I always hear people going on and on about it, but never saw it being played.
charlescox4  +   1575d ago
What!?!? Because the 2K line was just a better series with better gameplay and the best online! All-Pro 2K8's online still beats Madden.

@3 FACEPALM!
log out right now and start googling. Google is your friend and you need your friend now more than ever. 2K started as Sega's answer to a lack of EA support on the Dreamcast and ballooned into a full-blown sports franchise that was bought up by Take Two.

2K needs to get back to football and forget about baseball for now. 2K makes great basketball and football titles, been slipping in hockey, and never really made a "great" baseball game. So I can't wait for a real football game from Visual Concepts.

finally we may get ourselves some real NFL greatness...

Beautiful, bouncy, jolly, baby Jesus. . . Please make this happen for me and the millions of real football video game fans. If you can find it in your tiny heart to love us in that way, we will forever sacrifice Twizzlers and Jolly Ranchers in your name.

Jolly Ranchers and Twizzlers? Hell, I'll give up Reese's Cups forever if this goes through. Yes. I will give up peanut butter and chocolate. That is real love.

Madden you are done for. FU EA

This could be pretty cool to see another NFL 2K game. I just hope that Take Two would not be the only one making football games. If EA and Take Two can both make football games. It will bring competition and both companies will try harder to make their game better. I also hope that EA can make Baseball games too. For the same reason as football. With more games on the market you will have to push yours more to make it better. So at the end of the day gamers win.

as much as I wish that could happen
I just don't think it will. It would seem to me that Take Two will need to grab the exclusive rights or else EA will so no matter what happens we will only have one.
Vizion26  +   1575d ago
I don't get this
Why doesn't the NFL grant the license to any company as opposed to an exclusive license? Wouldn't the NFL make more money and possibly increase NFL exposure with more companies competing to make the better NFL game? It would be a win situation for the NFL and gamers.

Otherwise can someone explain the NFL's rationale for this?
jphelps80  +   1575d ago
Because the NFL has gone super stupid. It's just completely dumb to give EA this monopoly. Madden wasn't great before, but it has gotten worse anmd worse with no competition.

@Vizion26
Greed my friend...greed.
seinfan  +   1574d ago
And how sweet would it be if they sold the game at a slashed price like they did with 2K5? ESPN better be on it!
