    Soon after the news broke that EA was ending their college football series a release was made regarding the settlement of the player likeness lawsuit that was at the center of the entire situation that threatened the future of college video games and still could take down the NCAA as it remains as the lone defendant. Games were just a small part of the claim in which players believe they are entitled to a share of broadcasting and merchandising revenues.  (more…)...

    EA Sports has officially canceled their NCAA Football series which was going to be renamed College Football next year. The news comes on the heels of individual institutions expressing a desire to get out of the video game business by pulling their licenses. The NCAA was first to withdraw licensing, multiple conferences followed, but losing the schools was when EA began to see the writing on the wall that the series would not be sustainable. EA is currently seeking to settle the player li...

    For the third consecutive week EA Sports has released a $1 DLC uniform pack for NCAA Football 14. On the surface that kind of post-release support sounds great until the actual content being provided is examined to find the majority of items are just gloves while teams with full uniforms and helmets still missing from the game continue to get bypassed. The fourth uniform pack involves Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, UCLA, and USC. With the exception of all but one school t...

New gloves are also included for Cincinnati, Louisville, Florida State, and NC State. They can be purchased by going to Team Management and then the Uniform Store. The encouraging thing about today's content pack is that it comes just a week after the second. Consistent releases throughout the se...
  • NCAA and EA Will Get Opportunity to Argue for Dismissal from Likeness Lawsuit

    The judge in the potentially monumental antitrust case regarding college broadcasting, merchandising, and video game revenue through the use of unpaid player likenesses will allow both the NCAA and Electronic Arts to seek dismissal as defendants. The two parties felt they had a right to this due to the plaintiffs continuing to amend their claims (the latest by bringing in current players) and judge Claudia Wilken will grant them that opportunity in order to prevent a potential point for an ...

    Today EA Sports released a new uniform pack for NCAA Football 14. Unlike the first this one is not free and instead is offered for $1.

  • Dominoes Falling as SEC, Big Ten, and Pac-12 Follow NCAA in Withdrawing from Involvement With Video Games

    The SEC and Big Ten will no longer license their brands for college video games. The Pac-12 is now also out. The news comes about a month after the NCAA made the same decision. That does not mean members of the three conferences will be gone from the newly renamed College Football 15 from EA Sports. Like with the NCAA it means there will be no references to or logos for the SEC, Big Ten, or Pac-12 in the game. The conferences would get made-up names. The ramifications go beyond that h...
  • NCAA Will No Longer Sell Team Merchandise; Shifts More Responsibility to Schools

    Posted August 8th, 2013 at 4:45 pm 5 Comments »
    Last month the NCAA announced they would no longer provide a license for sports video games. The decision offered them distance from potential future claims regarding misuse of likenesses in games but will not help in the potentially monumental case brought by current and past players. Now the NCAA is taking a step back in the area of merchandising following the embarrassment of earlier this week. The NCAA will no longer sell jerseys, numbered t-shirts, or anything that could be construed...
