I never understood that for sports games. Beyond adding real life stat tracking and whatever else, what else can you do with a sports game other than release updates that are essentially the same, but with updated rosters?

They would be better off offering any sports title as an MMO for a $3-4/month subscription where stats and rosters are automatically updated, without removing anything previous (so that you still have access to retired players and such). You'd still be paying $40-50 a year, but it would solve having essentially 6 different version of the same game (as I currently have about 6 different versions of the various NHL games, none of which are compatible with each other).

Totally agree. I would love to have Madden, MLB The Show, and NBA2K as constantly updating/upgrading MMOs on my console, PC, etc rather then having to buy a new version and toss out the old one every year. That said, if you play your sports game mainly as a single player game this concept probably sounds less then appetizing in the same way that Diablo 3 always being online does, and for good reason. Unless they would be willing to allow single player to be completely offline, I think there would be a significant customer backlash.
