ConsoleSports has posted an article entitled, 2006: The Year When EA & 2K Must Win Back The Fans.
"The past two years have been a tumultuous time for sports video gamers. The EA vs. 2K licensing battle has caused some very popular lines of games to be scrapped, changed, or shelved completely. Last year NFL 2K football fans felt the loss of their beloved franchise. Next month, the loss of MLB MVP Baseball will be fully realized by fans as the new MLB 2K game comes out practically uncontested due to licensing issue. Thankfully, it appears that both the NHL and the NBA are wise enough not to go the “exclusive” route with their licenses- and victimize the fans the way that the NFL and MLB did. Still, enough damage has been done by pro baseball and football leagues to account for lots of hard feelings between fans of now defunct licensed games and those who’s company came out on top."
