I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (2 Hours ago)
They also sold 2K and exited the console business... so maybe it wasn't all the best course of action after all :D (2 Hours ago)
That's what I meant lol. NFL, not NHL. (2 Hours ago)
it's pretty shitty to deny a system because of Visual Concepts though. They hadn't even produced anything yet and EA was a giant even then (2 Hours ago)
EA's license is supposed to be up this year I think. I wish 2K could make an NFL game again. (2 Hours ago)
NFL2K was also the franchise that made it painfully obvious how little Madden was changing year to year. EA had to buy the NFL, and 2K bought the MLB in response I believe. (2 Hours ago)
Even though EA had their games on the Saturn and that flopped hard, the Saturn ran headlong into the famous "$299" mic drop moment. (2 Hours ago)
