"This May, developer NaturalMotion and publisher 505 Games will have an important question answered for them by consumer's wallets: If a football game doesn't have "Madden" on the box and an NFL license inside, is it still worth playing?"

I'm really surprised that EA didn't tap these guys first.

EA doesn't have to. Give them a few weeks.. maybe months.. and they'll own them too.

Neco5123491d ago

Right, EA will eventually own the world. But you're right, they could have easily tapped these guys first

According to the article EA has used the company for a bunch of their OTHER games...

NO NFL License == Failure in Football Games. This is why it was PURE EVIL for EA to lock other publishers out of NFL games with that onerous contract.

Madden doesn't mean it's a great game.. look at 2k games. Their NFL game was better than Madden IMO and the only reason they stopped was because the lack of licensing which the NFL yanked from everyone.

killyourfm3491d ago

True, true...I guess the question is how many millions of $$$ does 505Games have to market it.

Neco5123491d ago

NFL fans don't care about a game if they can't play as their favorite teams, and use their favorite players. If they don't get licensing from the NFL, then it will equal N.F.(FAI)L.

I haven't enjoyed an NFL football game since NFL 2K5 on the PS2. They had even dropped the price for the new games to $19.99 each year and EA had to respond.

just another football game whats the big deal

reluctant_gamer3491d ago

Yeah, I'm not one for sports either. They are usually the cheap (could have been DLC) updated versions of their previous iterations. But this looks like it could be better than that

The NFL liscense needs to be yanked from EA Sports immediately. Tired of the small minute improvements year after year.
