EA gives up the Madden ghost, sets aside $27 million in settlement
A lawsuit against EA and their monopoly on the NFL license has been settled for the sizable sum of $27 million. The thing is though, the monopoly will continue for the foreseeable future. Gamers will reap the rewards for their dedication to the franchise with any purchasers of Madden between 2005 and 2012 getting a cash settlement.
Also, EA looses the option of entering into an exclusivity agreement after 2014 with the NCAA and AFL (Arena Football League) for five years. Despite these wins, Madden’s exclusivity with the NFL will remain unchanged. So what did we learn today g1s? Even after four long years of litigation, corporations can still throw money at obstacles and make them go away.

Here''s money...PROBLEMS GO AWAY!!!
Eh, NCAA games aren't on Madden level, but one of the top sellers for EA Sports
As mentioned in another comment, NFL still is exclusive. Add onto the fact that the NCAA can still CHOOSE to be exclusive with EA (and they very well may,) I'm not sure it leads to as much innovation as we want.
And not a single fuck was given that day.
I doubt anyone really cares about their exclusivity of the NCAA or AFL. NFL is where it matters.
Also, $1.95? At least when Nintendo was forced to reimburse customers, back in the late 80's early 90's, by the FTC it was $10. Granted, only towards a future Nintendo product purchase, but still it was $10!
What's the best way to play a sports game? go outside and play.
Damn. I bought Madden for PSP.
If I really wanted to play football I would buy a ball not a video game. So...I don't care
You win this round EA, but mark my words. A true NFL Blitz will return someday, as for now, fuck you.
That's what I'am saying, I bought Madden 07 and 08 on PS2.
most people on the site wont give a f--k. For those that do, you might actually get more innovation in your football game.
How do you request the money from EA? I wouldn't mind having an extra 6 bucks..
To bad I haven't played a sports game since Golf on the NES...
I wonder what Notch would say.
Yeah, how are they supposed to know we bought one? I bet you need something dumb like a receipt.
Well Jared can feel free to take that one for hard news
PFFT HA HA HA HA...WOW.
Freakin' bribery. You see EA? This is why not many of us see you highly.
where do i get my money
i almost heard the pen throw at the end of the article
