Submission + - EA says no Madden 09 on PC (fishdan.com)

fishdan writes: "Wired is reporting that EA will not release Madden '09 to PC. EA has an exclusive license with the NFL to be the sole producer of video games through 2009. Although there are other "football" games out there such as Midway's Blitz: The League, Madden is still VERY popular. As a current online PC player, at any give time there are 60 people online looking to play PC games, and at peak times well over 300.

You have to wonder what the NFL thinks about this. Will they open up bidding in 2010? And what about the gamers? What is the real future of games on the PC? Is this going to motivate anyone to buy a console? Or will MSFT start selling a XBox360 emulator, and make this all moot."
