Consumers who buy two new EA Sports titles between September 27 and November 14 can get a coupon online for a third free game

 

and they also announced NBA Live will be priced at $39.99 this year. I think it looks like ESPN's $19.99 pricing gamble is somewhat working, or at least EA thinks its working.

ESPN's strat is working. Originally EA said Sega must be hurting , and the games production values would be low. However they have now changed there tune. ESPN Football got higher ratings then Madden on many big game sites, ESPN Hockey has got better ratings then NHL Hockey 2005, and ESPN Basketball has been better then live the last few years. Guess EA is realizing they underestimated Sega this year

This is good news and it is always nice to see competitive tactics taking hold as they only benefit the consumer. For me, I have no real interest in the EA games after I played ESPN NFL 2K5 (and I don't have much interest in other sports games besides golf), but this is very nice to see.

Even more price drops announced for EA Sports games. This time it's across the board:

A new salvo was fired in the sports-game price war today as Electronic Arts announced drastic price reductions for almost all of its flagship EA Sports franchises. Effective immediately, all console versions of Madden NFL 2005 and NHL 2005 will retail for just $29.95, which is $20 less than the original prices for both. NBA Live 2005 and NCAA Football 2005 will be discounted by $10, so the games will now sell for $29.95 and $39.95, respectively. All four games are rated "E" for Everyone.

Sega wanted to make an impact with their marketing and price cuts this year. I think it is safe to say that their campaign was a huge success. Sales of NFL2K went through the roof compared to last year. And their biggest competitor has been responding big time with their own marketing and price cuts. It is good to see the little guy make some headway. A long way to go though.
