Press Row Podcast

A decade ago, the most monumental decision in sports gaming history took place. Electronic Arts secured the exclusive license to make NFL-branded console video games, and the industry has never been the same again. 10 years later, what does that mean? Is it possible, much less likely, that anyone will ever make a competitor to Madden? If so, what would it take to accomplish it? Join our panel of Owen Good, Kat Bailey, Bryan Wiedey, and Rich Grisham as they explore this issue.

Read Rich's Sporting News article right here, which launched the discussion: Will Madden ever have competition?
