Re: Season ticket early access

With how well M15 is being received so far (way better than last year at this point) I am surprised they don't bring Season Ticket to current-gen. I bet a lot of people would shell out the money to get the game early. Live 15 ain't looking too shabby either. I would probably download each game this cycle.

Nah, now's too early. It's gotta be August. But the last week? ESPECIALLY like I said with no more NCAA game to worry about, I dont see the logic in holding off. This year it really shoulda been the 19th or even the 12th woulda been nice. (Even the 5th is too early) Not that I'd complain if it was the 5th lol. (That being said, I wouldn't mind the devs seeing this maybe and bumping it up a week if they could). That'd be nice.

Re: Season ticket early access

The only thing I can think of is that possibly some people were getting the games early, getting their fill and then never actually buying them.

Re: Season ticket early access

It's not free to put something on the digital storefronts for download. Following the same scheme as the previous gen they'd also need to get an app together to manage the process, then there's billing and CS costs involved. As always ROI and other factors (development resources, download sizes on next gen consoles, etc) probably made it not make sense for the short term.

If it was as successful as many of us (me included) think, then it will be back at some point probably.

I wouldn't rush Madden, give them all the time they need. Releasing a game a week or 2 earlier makes a huge difference between what can get fixed or put in a game versus what can't. Let us not forget, that 3 week period between when Madden comes vs when NCAA came out prevented NCAA 13 from getting the infinity engine, where as Madden 13 got it because they had the extra time to fix it and put it in.

Hell Madden can come out after Labor Day for all I care if it means they got to fine tune and polish stuff before the game goes to print.

For the longest time Madden came out in early-mid August, so I don't see any reason they can't bump it up a week or two. I think it was the year of the lock out that they moved to a late August release

Yeah. I remember too. Ever since that producer took over (David something?) he pushed it to last week in August. It's been there ever since. He's since long gone. To throw our NFL countdown guys some love.... C'MON MAN move it back to early-mid August guys. (And make this year the 19th too).
