What do you think of EA's exclusive license on NFL games?

I would like to see other video games with NFL players/teams in them. EA has had a lock since 2004 i think.

btw I think this story is interesting. EA wants its pie AND cake. My god they are greedy *******s.

Re: What do you think of EA's exclusive license on NFL games?

I think what EA are trying to do is avoid massive licencing costs and there for lower the production costs of games.

Not a bad idea when you consider the amount they pay for the NFL License is second only to the money the TV networks give the NFL.

If this lowers the costs of games as a whole then Im all for it TBH.

Re: What do you think of EA's exclusive license on NFL games?

I'm indifferent personally, in situations like that other developers have produced close to the likeness of players with different names and different team names but left the ability to edit player/team names. But considering the only game that I'm interested in that it affects is FIFA/Pro Evolution Soccer (as Football Manager does have the proper license) and recently Pro Evolution Soccer hasn't been very good, it doesn't bother me too much that only FIFA can use the entire catalogue of Premier League teams + players.
