Following the announcement for a worldwide distribution agreement between Sega and Take-Two, today online retailers Gamestop and EBworld.com are listing the pre-order price of ESPN NFL 2005 at $19.99. This is for the actual full retail version of the upcoming football title and not for a sized-down version--prompting rumors on the Internet of the price being a mistake (and also prompting a flood of pre-orders for the game).
While the pricing could turn out to be an error, there is also the possibility that the new price is set to bring over Madden NFL loyalists to its own football franchise. ESPN Videogames has not yet commented on the rumors, but an official announcement is expected soon. Meanwhile, you can pre-order your own copy before the prices possibly change.
