I didn't play 2004 enough to say what the biggest changes in 2005 are, other than the immense franchise mode, new rosters, and the hit stick. At any rate, yes. Roster changes are enough for me.

I don't buy that. They might blame piracy, but they'd be lying to themselves and you know it. They'd change it.

So we're game afficianados, our opinion is better than everyone elses'? My opinion is no better than anyones. I understand your movie analogy, but that has to do with distribution as much as anything. The bigger company gets bigger exposure. So sure they'd see the bigger profit. And no, that doesn't make their movie better.
The simple fact is: Their game is very very good. It's obvious a roster change is worth the dough. You can't fault the company for doing that. Maybe it's not as good as the espn version, maybe it's better. It's opinion. We could go back and forth on this all day, so I'll just be done.
