UPDATE: The settlement was approved by the court on 5/30/2013.



If you are in the United States and bought a new copy of an Electronic Arts’ Madden NFL, NCAA Football, or Arena Football videogame for Xbox, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, GameCube, PC, or Wii, with a release date of January 1, 2005 to June 21, 2012, your rights may be affected.

The purpose of this website is to provide information to potential Settlement Class Members about the proposed Settlement with Electronic Arts Inc., and to inform Settlement Class Members of 1) the certification of the Settlement Class, 2) the terms of the proposed Settlement, 3) their right to exclude themselves (“Opt-Out”) from the Settlement Class, 4) their right to object to the Settlement, and 5) the hearing at which time the Court will determine whether to grant final approval of the proposed Settlement.

If approved by the Court, payments will be made to Settlement Class members who submit timely and valid claims out of the net proceeds of the Settlement (the amount available after deducting payment of the costs of administering the Settlement, including the costs of this notice, attorneys’ fees, costs of the litigation, and any payments allowed by the Court to the named plaintiffs) based on the type and number of videogames purchased by a Settlement Class Member.

If you are an eligible Settlement Class Member, your share of the net proceeds of the Settlement will be based upon the number of videogame titles you purchased new, as well as the number of Settlement Class Members who submit valid claims.
