My interview with Peter Moore has been completed and I’d like to thank him and those at EA Sports who helped make it possible. We talked for over 20 minutes about some of the details of and issues relating to the NFL exclusive license being extended. Later this evening I should have the full recording of the interview available to download and listen to.

Here are some of the topics I brought up that you can look forward to hearing discussed:

  • How does EA feel about the negative reaction from within the community regarding the deal and what can they do to change that
  • Is there a difference in how games such as Madden with no direct competitor are produced vs other titles that have direct competition
  • What is the reasoning behind the drop in sales from 07
  • How the ESPN and NFL Network licenses are seen as not being utilized properly and how that may affect overall perception of the NFL license deal
  • The consistent disappointment in areas such as presentation, commentary, and atmosphere
  • Why are there uniform inaccuracies every year despite working together with the NFL and what could be done to eliminate that problem
  • Why does it seem AAA titles such as Halo, Call of Duty, and Bioshock have advanced so much since the last generation of consoles but sports games haven’t (outside of graphically)
