EA ei antanut Microsoftille lupaa tehdä jalkapallopelejä

Silloin joskus kauan sitten, kun Playstation ja Xbox olivat nuoria… se oli aikaa se. Tuolloin molemmilla konsoleilla oli oma kattauksensa urheilupelejä, kuten jääkiekkoa, amerikkalaista jalkapalloa ja koripalloa. Mutta perinteistä jalkapalloa ei ollut.

Microsoftilla oli työn alla jalkapalloa, mutta EA:n vaatimuksesta peli kuopattiin. EA kun ei halunnut itselleen kilpailijaa. Microsoftin entinen kehittäjä Garrett Young on paljastanut asian Kiwi Talkz -podcastissa. Microsoft tarvitsi konsolilleen EA:n tuen, joten oli pakko tehdä sopimus, joka kielsi Microsoftia kehittämästä jalkapalloa Xboxille. Tiettävästi tätä kuopattua työn alla ollutta jalkapallopeliä ei ole koskaan missään esitelty.

Vielä nykyäänkin EA:lla on ainakin melkein monopoliasema monen urheilulajin peleihin.
