Madden Mobile - Madden never had to advance their product
Jan-05-2018 Categories: news
EA does not allegation the NFL authorization anymore. I ambition if 2K could accomplish the amateur again. While I wouldn't ambition just 2K to accomplish amateur again, I would like the authorization to be accessible for anyone to accomplish an NFL game.
Why not 2K? Look, I admired NFL 2K5. A masterpiece of NFL games, no doubt. But lately, 2K has been bottomward some bits out there. NBA 2K18 started off with all kinds of messes. WWE 2K18 is abounding of boodle boxes and has one of the a lot of arid careers I've anytime played in. Let's not get started on 2K's ridiculously continued aggregate times in their amateur too.
That's the attributes of any monopoly. Just like EA has a de jure cartel on NFL, 2K has a de facto cartel on the NBA. 2K was affected to accomplish a above artefact due to antagonism and they admission adequate on their acclaim for years now aback nobody can attempt with them. Madden never had to advance their artefact because they just bought the exclusivity rather than earning it.
Neither aggregation is great, but what we allegation is accessible antagonism and not complete monopolies that asphyxiate development.
The aberration is 2K has antagonism on NBA games, they just suck. There are still several companies out there with the NBA authorization to accomplish games. There's alone one aggregation accustomed to accomplish NFL games, which is because of the NFL.
Not abiding why the NFL hasn't just said anyone can buy the license. They don't get a cut from profits. It's just a anchored amount. They'd bifold their assets if 2K could pay for it as well. About that's the NFL's MO. Not abiding why that's not the case here.
I don't apperceive this, but apprehension on added things we apperceive about the NFL is that they're complete superficial. If you attending aback to the 16 bit canicule there were so abounding amateur that had the NFL license.
And abounding of them were terrible. The NFL doesn't like searching bad and it's apparently a lot of plan to accomplish abiding assorted developers and publishers are accomplishing their cast justice.
So they apparently just ample whoever had the a lot of money (which is who would be able to bid the highest) would do them justice. But not just accomplish them attending good. They would abet with their cast guidelines the easiest.
There were a lot of appearance I've apprehend about the NFL nixing in Madden because they didn't like it.
Like helmets bustling off afterwards harder hits, or the ambulance alive over humans in Madden 92. They like that they will pay up as able-bodied as do whatever they say. Either way, I'm accomplished with amphitheatre an actionable game.
I admired All Pro 2k8. But most humans ambition the teams and the names.
In a way I assumption you can't accusation the NFL for searching out for their own business interests, but they're a little added on a top horse than added pro sports leagues. So that's how we get to one authorization I assumption haha.
