Yes it did and I was hoping we would get the same with EA Access but nothing so far. It would really help with knowing the schedule for future releases as well such as NHL 15.

Its 5 days before release. That means all the games will be up in the vault the Thursday before.

If you need a specific time then am sure they will put it up in the future by seconds an all.

Am sure the second is up it will be well known

I was about to buy this but the posts on OS and Twitter made me second guess trying this thing.. Is it worth it for those of you who got it?

For me, it's worth it. I want Madden early, but that is really on the low end of it. I already had battlefield, so I just traded it in for 20 bucks to cover some of the cost. I also wanted Fifa 14, so I can play that as well. Now I'm just waiting for some other games to be added.

I guess the question really is what games are you going to use it for?

Has EA made any announcements on the content that will be available for the games that you can play 5 days prior to release? I know its been said that the content will vary from game to game but I've not seen any specifics.

I've held off getting this as I would not be interested for instance if they only allow you to play practice mode in Madden for a couple of hours. The full game for 5 days would be a different story.

I'm not buying Madden this year due to the no CPU vs. CPU in franchise mode but I would like to try it out, the full game that is. And this would probably be the deciding factor if I buy the NHL game or not. Not really interested in that demo, just want to try the full game out.

I agree with you and it's something a lot of us are trying to figure out as well. The wording EA uses on the app is a bit ambiguous:


"Play First.

In addition, members can try EA's XBOX One games five days before the release date."



The questions that can arise from that statement:

Does this mean that we can try the game for five full days leading up to release, similar to what the Season Ticket (ps3, 360) allowed for 3 days?

Or does it mean we can try a game once (or for a limited time) during the 5 days leading up to release?

I wish we had definitive answers to this, and it's confusing all of us as to why there are no answers. Maybe it's just black & white, you can play the game for a full 5 days, and EA need not explain it further. Or maybe it's something more disingenuous and they want as many people to subscribe before clarifying what exactly is going on. Obviously, we all hope it's the former.

I'm pretty sure they have said every game will be a case by case situation as far as the play early thing goes.

I truly understand the cautious approach many are taking especially since money is involved. But there is no scenario where I can imagine where this would be different than Season Ticket [which they brought back ] in which you had an almost completely unlocked game with no time limits on it for sports games. To handle that differently in this case would almost guarantee failure going forward based on the precedent set by Season Ticket coupled with the fact that it's more expensive.
