So the title pretty much sums it up, why has EA consistently failed to bring the NCAA series to the PC? Madden is out there and the engine used is exactly the same SO WHERE"S MY NCAA 2007 DAMNIT! :mad:

Good question.

I wondered the same thing myself. It's like: Ok, if you're going to bring Madden over every year...why NOT bring over NCAA? Good-great selling title, easy $$$$, etc.

I might have bought it for this instead of the 360 if I'd had the choice. I know it would have been at least $10-$20 cheaper.

EXACTLY and it's not like the pc couldn't handle it graphically speaking, they have a version for the PSP for PETE'S SAKE!

Beats me.

I really don't understand the oversight myself. I never have.

Meh, I expected them get some easy, quick money off of a PC port just like they do Madden and the other sports games every year.

I could be wrong, but if you check. I don't think they have EVER released NCAA football on PC.

There was one year like 2000 or something when there was NCAA on the PC. To note they sell about 400,000 copies of Madden on a PC each year.

You can't tell me they won't sell AT LEAST that many copies of NCAA given the number of schools vs. the number of pro teams.

Exactly.

The bottom line to it is, IMO, at least:

This seems to go against the normal EA ilk: Get a quick, easy buck on the side, which is exactly what they could do here with fairly minimal effort.

If that isn't EA, by definition, I don't know what is.

I boycotted EA back in 2001 and I haven't bought a game since. Well I take that back, I did find Madden 06 for $3 at a garage sale about 2 months ago. As a former Commodore64 gamer, I supported EA from the very begining and I am insulted with how I am treated now.
