Just in time for the next-gen release of Madden NFL 25, lo and behold, here's my check from the settlement of the ridiculous Madden 'monopoly' lawsuit—for $64.14, which is four cents less than what the game would cost, with tax, at any of the GameStops I frequent.
Good news, Madden fans. The objection to a $27 million class action settlement in the case brought against the exclusive license held by the series has been dropped. Your money should be on the way soon.
It's your money? You want it now? Tough. Now it could be another year before some $27 million is distributed to gamers from Electronic Arts' settlement of a class-action lawsuit brought against the exclusive license its Madden NFL series held. Why? Someone's objecting to the lawyers' fees.
If you bought EA Sports' American football products between 2005 and mid-2012, good news: An adjustment to its settlement of a class action lawsuit has elevated the pittance of a payout gamers would have gotten into something a little more substantial. You have a month to claim it.
