EA teams up with ESPN

January 17, 2005

I knew EA was out to secure areas of the sports world, but [url=http://www.gamespot.com/news/2005/01/17/news_6116473.html]teaming up with ESPN[/url] in a 15 year deal is the last thing I expected to see. With Sega using the ESPN name in their sports lineup but being unable to use player or stadium liknesses and John Madden having an expiring contract with EA, things sure are getting strange. Does this kick Sega Sports completely to the curb and will EA’s next football title carry the legendary “Madden” name? Stay tuned as I am sure things are just getting started.
