Default Re: Better buy College Hoops 2k8 quick.

this whole exclusive rights thing is screwing the consumer out of quality games.

2k football > madden... madden gets exclusive nfl deal.
2k college hoops (and for that matter, nba as well) > ea sports basketball titles... ea gets exclusive college hoops deal. i hope stern sticks to not going with an exclusive license.
ea sports mvp baseball > 2k's baseball... 2k got the exclusive license (i believe just for sim type games). but mvp was awesome. i still play 05 because i don't want to play with college teams.

the companies think they are just hurting the competition by doing these deals, but really its the consumer that gets hurt the most because the quality of product offered after getting the license just sucks.
