I just realized that EA owns part of Ubisoft, so would EA allow them to use the NFL in Fever? Hmm....

If EA owns some of Ubisoft think they would just send their MVP people over there to develope a baseball game for Xbox? That would be an insteresting way for EA to get back into baseball pretty much only screwing PS2 and GameCube owners with that Take Two/ MLB deal.

How exactly would that help the MVP franchise? Ubisoft is a 3rd party developer just like EA. Neither one can make a licensed baseball game next year.
