  • EA’s Deal With NFL No Surprise But Questions Remain Including Exclusivity Status
    Posted January 29th, 2014 at 3:30 pm 44 Comments »
    Somewhat lost in the news yesterday that Electronic Arts has several years ahead under current deals with the NFL was the lack of specifics relating to terms. Many reports that followed have made the assumption nothing changed through the process despite evidence to the contrary. Just two years ago it was made clear that EA would not re-up without new consideration to the market value of the license and their standing as the only company prepared to release a product up the the league's stan...
  • EA Has The NFL License Secured For At Least a Few More Years
    Posted January 28th, 2014 at 2:45 pm 69 Comments »
    In 2011 the exclusive NFL license with Electronic Arts was extended an additional year taking the deal through what would be Madden NFL 25. Given the lack of any comment from the parties speculation as to what was taking place behind the scenes has naturally occurred and rumors originating from unreliable sources have swirled. The two previous extensions were made two years in advance of expiration yet here only a matter of days remained until it would presumably end. At some point, with...

  • Lack of NFL License News Raises Questions
    Posted January 16th, 2014 at 2:30 pm 68 Comments »
    Almost two years have passed since the NFL extended the exclusive video game license with EA Sports. At the time the events made it obvious that the satisfied partner in the relationship was the NFL and not EA. It was evident that EA would later seek to secure much more favorable terms come negotiation time. An extension to the exclusive license has still not been announced. In the past that news has come in February (2008 and 2011) each time two years in advance of expiration. Now though...

    Posted December 20th, 2013 at 10:15 am 35 Comments »
    The first post-release patch for Madden NFL 25 arrived yesterday on the Xbox One and PS4. While EA Sports decided not to go into detail on what the patch does - other than to say it includes some stability and bug fixes - they did single out SmartGlass for Xbox One as having been addressed in the update. As written about last month CoachGlass, which had been hyped up as a huge feature by EA, was not working properly for many people. The SmartGlass app would lose sync after a play or two ...

  • Madden NFL 25 Week 15 Upcoming Roster Update Discussion
    Posted December 17th, 2013 at 10:15 am 25 Comments »
    Defense in the NFL has largely disappeared for two straight weeks now as the record for most points scored in a week was set and then nearly broken just one week later - with no thanks to the New York Giants. It'll be interesting to see how this will be reflected in the next Madden NFL 25 roster update for the units that have struggled the most. Players that can be expected to rise include Ryan Tannehill, Jamaal Charles, DeSean Jackson, Kendall Wright, Justin Tucker, Robert Quinn, Michael...

    Posted December 10th, 2013 at 10:15 am 22 Comments »
    Week 14 of the NFL season will largely be remembered for the weather conditions and dramatic conclusions.
