    The latest Press Row Hangout was recorded on Friday night and tackled many recent news stories of significance.

Those include the changes implemented by Twitch, Zynga announcing two mobile sports games, and The Golf Club's release likely falling on o...

    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...

    EA Sports has now begun the process of revealing player ratings for NHL 15. In similar fashion to Madden NFL 15, they're doing it by showing off the top five at each position before moving on to complete rosters. The first two positions are the goalies and defensemen. The most glaring omission is probably P.K. Subban, who despite making it to the finals of the NHL 15 cover athlete selection process gets shut out of the top five. Goalie Henrik Lundqvist + Jonathan Quick (93), Carey Price...

The topics include The Golf Club and whether there could be more unlicensed sports games in the future, when to expect the Madden NFL 15 demo, why publishers seem to be holding back information on games until later now, and what sports game release in the past generated the most anticipation for the panelists.

  • Breaking Down the New EA Access Subscription Service
    by
    Posted July 30th, 2014 at 1:15 pm 20 Comments »
    EA Access was announced yesterday and based on the reaction there appears to be quite a lot of interest in the concept of a subscription service which provides a library of older games to play and pre-release play periods for new games. Many who were aware of EA Sports Season Ticket liked what that provided too, which EA Access appears to have improved upon in several areas and offers less in others, but that program was never actively advertised by the company so it never took off. They wil...
