Thread: College Basketball For Xbox

    Default College Basketball For Xbox

    I am wondering if there are any new college basketball games coming out this year? I read EA wasn't coming out with one for 2011 but is there any other company making one for 2011?

    Thank You pacer4ever.

    I assume I need Xbox Live. Do I need Xbox Live Gold or can I sign up for the free one to do that?

    I think u need xbox live gold but im not sure i have gold. The game is really good it would be worth it. Do you have any of ur free months left That come with the system ??? You would only need xbox live gold for a day or two to dowload the rosters you want. Maybe you can get a 2 day free trial from someone

    EA owns the College Basketball rights which is stupid. That's why 2k can't make one.

    I might be wrong, but it was always my understanding that 2K decided to not make any more games after 2K8 because of sales.

    Although your post makes total sense, as well.

    I'm pretty sure EA decided to buy the rights, but you don't have to quote on me that, I thought I read that article somewhere. It's a damn shame either way the 2k NCAA games were extremely well done.

    Agreed. NCAA 2K8 is one of the better College Basketball games ever made.


    It's the only time Greg Oden will be better at Kevin Durant at something......

    No EA is going to make it again I think, they just aren't this year because there's no Elite for them to just tweak slightly to make it a college game, which is why it is never as good.

    They cancelled it long before Elite was even announced. I believe it was cancelled even before the tourney.

    No that ****ing sucks because now they just own the license without anyway for someone else to make one.

    I believe that the NCAA has an option for an out clause in their contract with EA if EA decides not to make a basketball game.

    That's exactly what happened to NASCAR. EA had an exclusive deal with them since 2004, but they didn't make a NASCAR 10, so NASCAR ended their EA partnership and are now working on a game with Activision.

    Not sure why there can't be two versions of a sports game. The exclusive rights thing eliminates competition, which is ultimately a good thing since it encourages making improvements. It's nice for one to have more than one option to choose from.

    I agree. Competition is great.

    I still don't understand why they wouldn't come out with a new version this year. I mean really how hard is it when you consider they make other bball games and just have to build on what was made last year?

    They haven't sold well and have been poorly rated.


    The question is, why WOULD they make a new game?
