Exclamation Electronic Arts does it again...

scooped from Anandtech

"CLC Grants EA Exclusive College Football Videogame License"

ATLANTA, Ga., (April 11, 2005) - The Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC) today announced an exclusive licensing relationship with Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) to develop, publish and distribute interactive college football games. The six-year agreement gives EA the exclusive rights to the teams, stadiums and schools for use in its best-selling college football videogames. The agreement is for all videogame consoles including console online features and handheld devices. The first title under the new contract, NCAA Football 2006, is scheduled for release this summer. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

"When we began our analysis of the videogame landscape, it became apparent that EA SPORTS was best positioned from a marketing and development perspective to maximize the sales opportunities for college football," said Pat Battle, CEO of The Collegiate Licensing Company.

"Electronic Arts has been a tremendous partner, and we are thrilled that the EA SPORTS team has renewed its commitment to the college market. We look forward to seeing how EA will continue to grow its NCAA Football franchise through innovative game play, unique marketing programs and its dedicated sales force."

"EA SPORTS is currently our top non-apparel licensee," said Mike Low, Director of Licensing at the University of Notre Dame. "Fans love the effort they put into making the stadium, the traditions, mascots and the whole game environment so realistic."

"Our NCAA football franchise is a key element in our EA SPORTS brand lineup and we are pleased to have secured the NCAA license," said Jeff Karp, Group Vice President of Marketing for Electronic Arts. "There is an unrivaled loyalty our fans have for the game, and this agreement with CLC allows EA to continue to deliver to fans the best, most innovative college football experience now and for years to come."

EA's NCAA Football 2005 was the only college football title released in 2004. Its NCAA Football franchise, published under the EA SPORTSTM brand, has sold more than a million units in each of its three most recent iterations and was the #7 console title in terms of retail revenue in North America in 2004. NCAA Football 2005, currently is available for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox® videogame system from Microsoft, and Nintendo GameCubeTM. The game was developed by EA Tiburon based in Orlando, FL and rated "E" (Everyone) by the ESRB.
It shouldn't impact the industry as much as the NFL license will though since EA seems to be the only one making NCAA Football titles atm. I'm still not a fan of monopoly's though.

Some of the best games ended up not being a franchise labelled game anyway.

Yeah I remember reading about this. To bad EA also owns the rights to the Mutant League Football series. Thats one series that I always enjoyed that could of been revived to compete with the NFL games (but like I said, EA has those rights).

At this point, the only non-EA football game on the horizon appears to be Midway's Blitz: The League. Next fall is going to draaaaaag.

sounds like a possibility, at least, I'm sure EA would love for this to be the case

I really wont be buying anymore future EA games. The last one I got was NFS U2 and it will be the last I buy from them until they return to the company they once were. Not this drab monopoly they have become.

I hate the Madden series of football games. The controls and graphics are just HORRIBLE. With that said, is there a better game? Hellz yes! When the Dreamcast was released, Sega created NFL2K. Even up to this day, the Sega/ESPN series kicks Madden straight in the rear. Does anybody agree with me?
