Through the fire and flames of an Electronic Arts exclusivity contract, Run Games will be the first company in many years to persuade the NFL to allow for real players in the coming football title, NFL Heroes: Pro Edition.
NFL2K15,when is madden contract up.
Good. Madden needs to die or get it's act together, and competition is the best way to do that.
It's amazing the things that are missing in Madden that was in 2k's football game 8 years ago. Like QB's slipping in the rain when they drop back or kickers falling in the rain.
I really hope we get a 2k football at e3 for ps4 xb1 and PC. Forget bombshell, that would be nuclear.
The 2k football series was the best IMO.
Bring Back NFL 2K!!!!!!
No Bring Back Game Day. LOL
I second that btw jogam sony dropped gameday to please ea back in the day look it up thats why ea didnt do dreamcast
"The new game will feel more true to the game of football with elements like on-side kicks, 2-point conversions and timeouts." Lmao wtf, no way, no freaking way! No game has ever done that before, what is going on here. Consider my mind blown!
What? No really it is
Competition is better for everyone.
except for EA's wallet
Thank you lord..
There is hope
I miss nfl street
Also made by EA.. But still it's weird they never continued it considering it was so much fun; Street V1 and V2 that it not NFL tour.
And look how much progress football video games have made since the beginning of this contract. Oh wait...
Make a next gen nfl blitz!
2k= F*CKING FINALLY.
I find it quite ironic that there is very little competiton is sport video games. Madden is the only true monopoly, but MLB the show has no competition, and the scene in the NBA has become lopsided in favor of 2k. FIFA dominates all else when it comes to soccer. Why can't we have more than one quality title for any given sport? And why have the licensed arcadey sports games gone extinct?
Baseball: MLB the show ( platform exclusive ) and MLB 2K ( multiplatform ) you could argue that their not directly affecting each other and both are very good baseball games. Basketball: EA just flatout dropped the ball they lost this battle on equal terms with NBA2K NFL: you already know the deal. FIFA: This one i don't really know myself. But i hear FIFA is very good so it earns it's praise. Though it'd be nice to get an experts opinion on this since it's not my forte :/. That aside pro evolution is good and it's an alternative.
Don't forget NHL. EA owns the ball in that court too, or should I say puck. Haha
Pro evolution was good. Its just that they can't use league teams only international which ruins pes. Fifa is good it's just so much potential is lost. Gijng from ps3 to ps4 only loading screens were the differences.
MLB 2k14 didn't even come out... Hard to call that competition.
MLB: The Show had MLB 2K as its competitor. However, it has beaten 2K soundly to the point that there is no MLB 2K14. EA just flat out failed with NBA Live. FIFA has PES as its competitor. PES used to be really good, but has fallen off the map over the past years.
Didn't know the show beat MLB2K weird considering they were both really great games.
Pat Summerall 2K15. RIP
Free at last, free at last. :) been waiting a long time for this.
I hope nhl will follow, I love hockey games but i hate giving EA money they don't deserve
to BellePelouse /I think NHL 14 is the best sports video game ever made! If a new studio makes a new NHL hockey game, it is really going to be tough to compete with EA NHL HOCKEY series, because the same studio has been working on the NHL SERIES for over 20 years!
Its a great sport game but I will never be as good as it could be because EA releases a new one each year and stop patching the previous one. On top of that they are hell bent on putting in new features to sell the new games when the one they put in this year are not yet balanced. Wich resulted in the most expensive and frustating games you can play for only one year. And if not from EA maybe we could see a hockey game on pc!
This is the first time people have cumulatively agreed that competition is a good thing. I applaud the N4G community.
THANK GAWD!! TECMO BOWL and JOE MONTANA FOOTBALL CONFIRMED!!
about time indeed. but i hope they change the title. nfl heroes? really? majority of them players are not heroes , surely you can think of a better name.
Oh god hell yes!!! Please let Sony's awesome studios make am nfl game that rivals their baseball games, let nfl 2k come back, and who knows what else. God this is like the best news I've heard all year.
My favorite football game to play when i was little, was ATARI FOOTBALL in the ARCADE back in 1978, It was the video game that made the trackball popular and was one of the first video games to have vertical scrolling ! Good that someone else is now making a new American football game with some of the NFL PLAYERS.
EA has exclusivity with Consoles and PC. Tablets, smartphones, and other devices are allowed to make games for it as it doesn't violate EA and the NFL contract so don't go celebrating this is flame bait.
Well I Hope EA Gets To Make MVP Baseball Again, Best Baseball Game Hands Down
Unless 2K knows about a deal with the NFL before it's made, don't expect a big hit from them soon. NBA2K14 took 17 years to make.
Thank the lord. The Madden franchise is seriously played out.
Madden is the best example of how stupid people are that want Xbox or Playstation to fail. Fanboys are scum. Competition in the market place is good. All gamers should want PS4 and One to be neck and neck in sales with one trying to outdo the other. Sad that there's no NCAA Football this year.
I /still/ play 2k5. And to think they sold that game for $20 brand new.
