The battle for the NFL
After EA Games bombshell
announcement that it had signed a five-year exclusive licensing deal with the NFL
, many sports games fans are wondering what will happen to their favorite franchises that don't feature John Madden
. You can bet ESPN
is hoppin' mad (and probably Microsoft as well), as are fans of its NFL 2K
series (of which I'm a proud member). Do deals like this hurt the fans or the sport ... or even the gaming industry itself? I certainly think so. Sports is about competition! Oh, no, wait it's about money. Never mind.
