    The latest Press Row Hangout was recorded on Friday night and tackled many recent news stories of significance. In one segment from the show the panel raves about the lasting enjoyment of MLB 14: The Show, the next relates to the big ruling yesterday in the Ed O'Bannon v. NCAA case, and the final one runs through a number of topics in a "Lightning Round". Those include the changes implemented by Twitch, Zynga announcing two mobile sports games, and The Golf Club's release likely falling on o...
  • O’Bannon Wins Case Against NCAA

    The judge in O'Bannon v. NCAA has ruled that the NCAA violates anti-trust laws by preventing players from being paid for their name and likenesses. This does not appear to be a ruling however that threatens the core of the NCAA - one in which some surmised a more devastating ruling could bring down the organization entirely. It's certainly far from the worst case scenario for them. That could be a good thing for the future of college sports video games depending on how the NCAA attempts t...
  • College Football 15, Having Lost The NCAA License, Would Have Released Today

    Under normal circumstances today would have been all about the release of the latest edition of NCAA Football. Unfortunately the series was cancelled last September in the midst of player likeness lawsuits that scared the NCAA, several conferences, and even some schools into abandoning EA Sports. Were it not for the loss of actual schools (which would have gotten much worse as others wanted to drop out) the plan was for the franchise to continue with this year's title named College Football...
  • O’Bannon Case is Over; Resolution and Ramifications Still A Long Ways Away

    The case that could change the landscape of college athletics, and was the catalyst that led to the cancellation of the NCAA Football series, has come to a conclusion. The decision in Ed O'Bannon v. NCAA is now fully in the hands of U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken who is expected to make the ruling in August. Throughout the trial observers noted the plaintiffs were dominating the proceedings, and that it seemed as though the NCAA was more concerned with cultivating arguments for appea...
  • EA Sports Hopes To Make College Football and Basketball Games in the Future

    In testimony earlier this week in the Ed O'Bannon case vs the NCAA, an Electronic Arts representative expressed the desire the company has to develop college-based video games in the future. Joel Linzner, EVP of Business & Legal, stated EA would be "very interested in acquiring the rights" of players to use in the games. Of course this would require the NCAA to remove most if not all restrictions on the "amateur" status of athletes which is what the class action suit is attempting to...
  • NCAA Ordered to Talk Settlement in O’Bannon Case; Eventual Resolution Will Determine Future of College Sports Video Games

    Last week the judge in the Ed O'Bannon class-action case vs the NCAA ordered the two sides to enter settlement talks. Naturally questions have started to come in about whether this could accelerate a return of college football (and other sports) video games. There is no longer a video game element to the case - although Sam Keller has continued to argue that he was not a part of the earlier settlement that got Electronic Arts and Collegiate Licensing Company out of it. A conclusion to lit...
  • NCAA Football 14 Deal on Xbox 360

    PlayStation 3 owners got the benefit of special deals in recent weeks with MLB 13: The Show for $10 and NHL 14 for $15. Buying them digitally even made sense for those who already had them on disc and could re-sell them for more than that. Now those with Xbox 360s can take advantage of a similar offer. NCAA Football 14 is available as a digital download through Xbox Live for just $15. There are no real discounts on the game elsewhere - even Amazon has new copies sitting at $60 with used c...

    Electronic Arts' legal troubles relating to the alleged use of player likenesses in college football and basketball video games did not come to an end with the settlement in the Ed O'Bannon led lawsuit. The NCAA is now challenging the company, along with the CLC, regarding the $40 million settlement they reached in late September.  (more…)...
  • Two More Uniform Packs Out Now for NCAA Football 14

    Posted November 5th, 2013 at 10:15 am 14 Comments
    EA Sports today released the fifth and sixth uniform packs for NCAA Football 14 after a gap of six weeks with nothing. Each DLC pack costs $1 and unlike earlier ones these contain all jerseys and helmets rather than mostly being limited to gloves. Pack five includes Alabama, Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Texas A&M, and Western Kentucky. Pack six is comprised of Oregon, Texas, Texas Tech, and Louisiana-Monroe. This is likely to act as the last support NCAA 14 receive...
  • EA and CLC Only Out $40 Million in Player Likeness Case Settlement
    by
    Posted September 27th, 2013 at 12:15 pm 20 Comments
    When the settlement to the likeness case was announced yesterday many wondered what it was about the agreement that resulted in the shuttering of EA Sports' college football series. With the dollar amount of the settlement now known it has become clear that it wasn't the money involved but rather the avoidance of future litigation and terms that made the series no longer a viable product going forward.  (more…)...
