Really, this is the best move Sega can make right now. But the best way to be competitive with any EA title (since they now have exclusive rights to the ESPN brand) is to make a deal with Fox Sports, who has cemented itself as the world's baseball leader. (Although the idea of a video game Joe Buck might sicken more than a few)
The best part of the article for me? Take Two is paying for this potential deal with profits from GTA!
No, that definately wasn't it. I've never even heard of Samurai Showdown. At least one person seems to remeber hering about it so I knopw I'm not 100% crazy. Woulda been a lot of fun i they actually made it... EDIT:
