Likeness?  The pixel players look nothing like the real individuals.  I can't believe the lawsuit made it as far as it did.

I think this announcement may be posturing.

The NCAA (and the different schools and associations) gets more visibility due to a major video game release on a yearly basis - EA announcing they're closing it down will probably hurt the NCAA and all the organizations behind it more than it will EA. I could see this as a "fine - we're done" to the players. EA won't be held over a barrel.

They'll just make Star Wars sports games instead. Tongue

This issue has been growing over the last year. While I'm sure the NCAA isn't happy about this, there isn't much they can do, except settle with the student-athletes, and that's going to be difficult.

I don't think the NCAA game does anywhere near the sales of Madden so its not surprising they would drop the game. Not worth the hassle with these lawsuits.
