EA Sports are dickbags.
The video game creators of FIFA 17
couldn't reach an agreement with Iceland - the slow clapping
Euro 2016 sweetheart team with a dentist for head coach
- meaning they won't be featured in the upcoming video game. Apparently EA Sports offered the country's national soccer team a whopping $15,000, to which the soccer club essentially farted at, saying “I really feel if we are giving away rights, or offering rights, it has to be proper negotiations and fair fees.”
This isn't the first time EA Sports has been worse than cancer. Back in 2004, Sega created a dope football game called ESPN NFL 2K5
for only $19.99. Not only was the game cheaper than EA Sports' $49.99 counterpart, Madden 2005
, it was way better. 2K5
had ESPN integration, helmet cam
, 2004 celebrity integration (Jamie Kennedy, Steve-O, David Arquette, Funkmaster Flex, Carmen Electra), and let you decorate your crib
. How did EA Sports respond to this competition? EA Sports signed exclusive rights deals with the NFL and ESPN to prevent them from making the game anymore. Our feelings exactly
We haven't forgotten that there hasn't been a new NCAA Football
video game since 2013...
