  • NCAA Ordered to Talk Settlement in O’Bannon Case; Eventual Resolution Will Determine Future of College Sports Video Games
    Posted March 3rd, 2014 at 1:30 pm 21 Comments
    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...

    Posted December 26th, 2013 at 10:45 am 6 Comments
    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.

    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.

This is likely to act as the last support NCAA 14 receive...
  • EA and CLC Only Out $40 Million in Player Likeness Case Settlement
    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…)...

    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 Cancels NCAA Football Series

    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...
  • Fourth Uniform Pack Out for NCAA Football 14
    Posted September 24th, 2013 at 8:30 pm 11 Comments
    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...
