ESPN Videogames confirmed today that the critically acclaimed ESPN NFL 2K5 will be available at the attractive retail price of $19.99. This compelling price point is one part of an aggressive marketing strategy that has been implemented since the announcement of a sales and distribution relationship between Take-Two Interactive Software and Sega Corporation for ESPN Videogames.

"For years, our fans and critics have been heralding our title as the ultimate football experience," said Greg Thomas, President of Visual Concepts - makers of ESPN Videogames. "We've pulled out every stop to make this the best, most feature-rich NFL title on the market. In fact, we're even offering the deepest online experience this year. Now, consumers score by getting the best game at an unbeatable price."

Winner of numerous awards at E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) 2004, ESPN NFL 2K5 continues the 2K series' tradition of innovation and quality gameplay by introducing groundbreaking new features. The V.I.P. System(tm) (Virtual Identity Profile) allows players to keep track of a human opponent's behavior, then save and re-load the behavior, allowing true competitive play at any time. Maximum Tackle(tm) gives gamers an unparalleled level of control from both sides of the field, from dishing out big hits as the defense, to slipping out of tackles for extra yardage as the ball carrier. Authentic ESPN Presentation elements include ESPN's Chris Berman and Suzy Kolber, stylized on-screen graphics, ESPN's exclusive Skycam(tm) and a full franchise show featuring ESPN personalities Mel Kiper, Jr. and Trey Wingo. ESPN Videogames delivers the new standard in online play consisting of competitive tournaments, deep online statistics and multiplayer leagues - all offered at no additional cost to the consumer.

ESPN NFL 2K5 and other ESPN Videogames titles are produced by Visual Concepts, SEGA's sports studio. For more information, log on to the official ESPN VideoGames website.
