    Default Is SE missing out on a sports game money maker?

    So the other day I loaded up FF X for the simple reason I just wanted to play some blitz ball. Then I thought would wouldn't SE look at a franchise like FIFA, and Madden and see that there is money there? I know I'd buy a SE Blitz sports game. Update it with DLC with different people from the series, and make it like a manager GM. You could also do a HUT style for it. Online would let me put Bubba on blast each week! I know some hate Blitzball, but others love the game. Is SE missing out on some easy money?

    I would pay so much money for Blitzball Manager. OMG it would be amazing.

    I used to pine for this to become a thing for so long, but eventually I squashed that desire and sent it down into the nether-regions of my brain with the rest of my unrealised hopes and dreams.

    I honestly hated blitzball. It's pretty easy to bork the game in your favor which kills all the fun out of it. If SE missed out on a real money maker it was not making Triple Triad real since VIII was around the same time the CCG scene was just starting up.

    If it had it's own game it would obviously be a more polished product. I would think it could be done similarly to Blood Bowl or Football Manager. Personally I would like to see it retain some of the gameplay aspects of the game, but it might be too complicated to make it a true sports management sim as well as a sports game.

    Guess we'll never know though

    I would love this, but I honestly don't think there are enough people who would also love this enough to warrant the game being made. It's too niche. Shame they can't (well, won't) just give the rights to the highest bidding indie developer or something.

    Yeah, and if you have the FF Portal app you can earn points by reading stuff and watching videos. Then you can get exclusive cards in their store on FF portal to work with the TT app.

    And yes I would 100% be down with a Blitzball game, either FIFA style or Footie Manager style.

    I imagine it would be hilarious to play a 'Final Fantasy at the Summer Olympic Games'. Why limit it to just Blitzball? Why not chocobo racing, and jump rope?

    SEii Sports, play it first on PS4 (and then Xbox and cell phones one month later):

    • Blitzball Manager
    • Vivi and Eiko at the Summer Olympic Games
    • Chocobo Race Double Dash
    • Cloud Strife Pro Snowboarder
    • Several other sports where Lightning is the only character
