    I would love to see a college baseball game come out again...

    Until the ncaa and schools make some peace regarding likenesses and amateurism, no publisher will touch college anything.

    I don't think this is true - EA's issue was that they were always trying to skirt the line wrt player identity. Had they (from the earliest murmmerings of complaint) made it a wholly random proposition, they would have been in much better shape. Instead they did similar faces until what, NCAA 12? I mean ...

    Similar skin tone, handedness, and weight height... I can tell you that at no time did the ncaa game ever use "non-generic" heads or faces for the current college players. 8 skin tones, 4 body types per skin tone, 4 faces per body type.

    A game with completely random ratings and team makeups could be made, who's going to buy it though?

    EA and the players and schools have no problem. EA and the ncaa have problems because EA settled with the players which the ncaa was directly opposed to.

    It will be interesting if the power football schools ever do leave the ncaa.

    Well I didn't say "non-generic heads," although they went with the generic head most similar (particularly for noteworthy players).

    And I'd say EA and the players having no problem is a bit of a dismissal. It's more that it wasn't as public. When you think about all of the entities making money off of your work, one that provides absolutely nothing to you as a player is a bit more egregious.

    They can do these games and do "typical" players that won't be a problem.
