Just stumbled upon this article were it seems Electronic Arts (EA) has just signed an exclusive deal with the Arena Football League (AFL) giving them a stronger hold on the football videogame market. When will the madness ever end?
From the article:
“Leading publisher Electronic Arts has announced an exclusive deal to develop games based on the Arena Football League, which sees the company sewing up the rights to the popular and fast-growing American sport.
“The move will see the creation of a new AFL title in the EA Sports line-up, joining other football franchises Madden, NFL Street and NCAA, with the first title due to hit the market before the 2006 AFL season starts in a year’s time.”
