EA Bizz Buzz

Electronic Arts deal with NFL raises questions discusses whether EA's exclusive NFL deal (story) makes financial sense for the publisher. On a related note, there's another petition protesting EA's exclusivity on Petition Online. There are editorials decrying the move on the Quarter To Three Forums and Dubious Quality. Meanwhile, EA May Not Win the Battlefield is an article on the possibility that EA's DICE offer (story) will be rejected, as seen here in Swedish (thanks Staffan). But they may still... no voting has taken place yet, so this is just a Swedish rumor at this point.

Good points as always, Creston.

I think what's important to note here is that EA at least used to make the effort of pretending to care what we, as gamers, wanted. In not only killing off their competition with this move they've also essentially told us we can go fuck ourselves because we've now got nowhere else to go for NFL goodness. They now have open season to do whatever the hell they want and they don't even have to waste their precious advertising dollars to ship even shittier titles to us.
