Electronics Arts is evil

So Sega started coming out with their ESPN sports video games at $30CND and they were amazing, too. No halfwitted products. So what does EA, the world's biggest video game company do?

"Electronic Arts announced today an exclusive licensing agreement with the National Football League and Players Inc. to develop, publish, and distribute interactive football games. These agreements give EA the exclusive rights to the NFL teams, stadiums, and players for use in its football video games for the next five years."

Can you believe it? And there's more:

"EA is attempting to negotiate similar deals with the NBA and Major League Baseball."

I cannot accept this. I refuse to get any future Madden game. For that matter, I'll throw in any future EA hockey game, as well. Sic semper tyrannis!
