ESPN NFL 2k5 only $20.00

Quote:
Two days ago, many sports fans did a double take when they saw ESPN NFL 2K5 listed at a $19.99 price point on EBgames.com and GameStop.com. However, at the time, officials from the game's developer, Visual Concepts, wouldn't officially confirm the new budget price, saying only, "We will have big announcements regarding the game soon."

Apparently "soon" meant "Friday." Today, EBgames.com is advertising the new $19.99 price point on its home page as "just announced." Sources within the retailer confirmed that "The $19.99 launch price for [the] Xbox and PS2 is official and has been confirmed by the publisher."

A bold move by ESPN, Madden will still probably out sell it though.

Even for a savings of $30 I'll be sticking with Madden.

theres no doubt that ill be buying Madden this August, and paying 40 dollars more for the limited edition version. But for 20 bucks, and after reading the review I kinda want to give espn a try. It wont break my bank so I might try it. Mabye start a poll on here if people think they will try it for 20 bucks.

For Twenty Bucks, I'll defintley give it a shot. I'll proboly just split Madden 2005 with my brother again, so it will be like I just bought one game overall.

If you give it a honest try I think that you will like the set up of the game, I am rather excited that it is only gonna cost me $20 this year. IMO you may end up liking it better than Madden.

I might get it only because my gaming budget might be a little low then. There will be several games out in that time frame (Aug-Sept) that i'm interested in.

did anyone else own and play NFL 2K3? i hope they've adjusted it since then cuz the scores always seemed to be around 100 points for both teams in a simulated game and players ran for over 200-300 yards a game and the qb threw for over a 600 yards with 6 or 7 tds, it was ridiculous. other than that the game was awesome. i love how they do the draft talent evaluating better than madden plus i've only drafted like 2 or three players in madded that were starting quality whereas 2k3 reflected that there r usually atleast 4 or 5 extremely talented players capable of starting in each draft.

I am buying the game for $20. I have been very happy with ESPN Baseball and Hockey. While I love Madden, I like the $20 price. Chances are I end up getting both though.

I'm a Madden guy, I'm sure NFL2k5 will be fun and at $20 it's a great deal, but there's just something special about Madden.

if you really just want to try them out, thats what suprnova.org is for , ou can even get the games up to a week before release. but if you do like your free "trial," I definately suggest supporting the company that made it. I really want madden 2k5 cause the 2k4 skins roster kinda blew...

This is from the forum admin at ESPN Message Boards:
Posted: Thu Jul 08, 2004 11:02 am Post subject:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ESPN Videogames has made no official statment regarding a change in release date... as it stands now, NFL 2K5 will ship August 10th.

Any date announcements (in this case ebgames.com) are erroneously posted.

Please stay tuned for more information.

- forum Admin
--------------------------------------------------------------

Now if my game arrives early in the mail, I will not complain. What would be really cool is if ESPN can drive the price of Madden down.
