Right, but they extended the license this year. The previous license was good until 2010. The new one gives them exclusive rights all the way to 2013. And like the other posters mentioned, they're working on getting the NCAA rights next.
Not only does it give them exclusive rights, but even if they don't extend the license, it gives them a chance to work on a game years before any other brand.
