New Video Game Will Feature Football Teams From Black Colleges

In 2006 EA Sports Madden NFL 06 was the nation’s top-selling video game with sales of more than 1.8 million units. The company has an exclusive contract with the National Football League so other game makers cannot use images of players, coaches, and stadiums that are part of the NFL.

But Nerjyzed Entertainment, an African-American-owned firm based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is trying to capitalize on the popularity of football video games by releasing BCFx: Black College Football Experience. The game, scheduled to be released next month, will feature more than 40 football teams from historically black colleges. Included in the game will be features on the world-renowned marching bands fielded by several black colleges.
