Certainly an avenue worth exploring. The obvious concern is in final product quality. If someone has donated an amount to a cause but are dissatisfied with the final product, it is unlikely they will offer funding for future products thus bringing the longevity of such ideas into question.

This might be a way to get a CFL game for all of us Canadians!

Kickstarter might be a good way to launch lacrosse or rugby. Licensing would prevent college sports like baseball or hockey from being developed. EA, 2K, and Sony are tough competitors, but we need alternatives for sports gaming.

I'd be willing to kick in for a new College Hoops game, and for a new football game from 2k I'd donate my car...although come to think of it, $40-50 might be a better donation....

I also would love to see more niche games come out...like a home console online-enabled version of "Derby Owner's Club" (weirdo but oddly addictive horse-racing game). For that I'd pay $30-40. But there probably aren't 1000 people in the country who would be willing...

Great article Jayson.

I often thought this myself for sports games not backed by a Major Sports organization (i.e. a NFL 2k13 without the NFL). If any studio with sports programming know-how outside of EA/2K saw how much money people were willing to put into a "no-name" sports game, the hardcore gamers could find something to break the monopoly on Sports video games

I would totally back the following... 1) Mutant League Football, 2) An NFL coach sim that mirrors OOTP or Football Manager, 3) College Basketball 2K. Get on it all you talented computer programmer types!!!!
