So EA's exclusive deal with the NFL killed off NFL 2k series that ended with NFL 2k5 - an awesome game. 2K acquired exclusive third party rights ending EA's MVP Baseball series with MVP Baseball 2005 - also an awesome game. However, 2K makes bad baseball games and EA makes never-changing (despite Madden 13 finally showing it's headed in the right direction) football games.
This is terrible from a consumer standpoint, and also terrible financially for 2K since its MLB offering receives bad reviews. EA was more successful financially, but of course there is no other football offering.
I can't stress how stupid this situation is. I know 2K did what they did in response to EA but we lost 2 great series in the process.
I love MLB The Show but MLB 2k provides no competition and it sucks for xbox ownersstuck with MLB 2k. Competition between The Show and MVP Baseball would have been amazing this console gen.
Think we'll see the return of MVP Baseball?
