I saw that there is more people preordering NFL Fever 2002 over Madden, why is this?
Actually, both NBA Inside Drive and NFL Fever were released for the PC 2 or 3 years ago. Both got decent-to-very good marks frmo reviewers. So in fact, Microsoft does have some experience with this stuff.
Not to mention their two tries at a Baseball game and International Soccer, and they now own Access which makes the very popular Links LS series.
Even though most of these games had mixed reviews on the PC and they ended up stopping the series (except for Links), remember the that PC sports market is very different and tough to crack and not the great money maker it is on the consoles.
It'll be interesting to see what they can do on the XBox. EA certainly has their act together this time around (after the horrid transition from 16-bit) and Sega certainly upped the ante with their DC games. I hope they can compete.
