It's a tired old cliche to say that EA and 2K are doing badly with the sports titles, and it is also tired old cliche to say that they got worse since it the contracts for them were made exclusive.
Or the arenas were trademarked....I think that was a thing somewhere. Not sure the exact franchise...
The question I'm wondering is if it would be possible to use a lawsuit to break the contracts open earlier and without the ability to get them renewed? I'm no legal expert, but there should be something you can weaponize.
Monopoly, Unfair Business Practices, brand damage...something.
(I'll fully admit the thought came to me at first as a 'how to hurt E.A' thought after the Switch Legacy edition was announced, so I am asking this in part out of sheer spite. But hey, we all hate EA so.....)
The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?
