A little disappointing this isn't offered on the PS4, but then again, i'm sure Microsoft paid EA a ridiculous amount of money for exclusive rights to this.

Per Major Nelson's blog, sounds like this may only be a timed preview, maybe only as much as 2 hours

They already have a long standing partnership with EA and the NFL so I'm not surprised with something like this.

Edit: Nevermind that last part. Just saw on Major Nelson it is Xbox Exclusive.

Knew it sounded too good. So really you get to play for 2 hours then have to wait until release day. Take that back. The Vault would be something good to look into. I want more than two hours though. I know it reads "at least" two hours but they need to set a number. They should give people five hours with the game. Five Days; Five Hours; Five Dollars. Come on MS and EA do that.

Well, I'm sure EA factored that "lost income" from PS4 users into whatever they charged MS for the apparently exclusivity of this.

That being said, I'm definitely going to do this. Not sure if I will do it for the $30 yearly, or just two months. Ideally I'd like to use it for Madden and NHL, but that's about it. The rest doesn't really appeal to me, but we shall see.

EDIT: If it's true it's only a 2 hour trial... then there's no way I'd be paying for that.

Yup, agreed. It says, "as much as 2 hours." Pretty disappointing to me...

I don't think Microsoft paid as much as everyone thinks. EA and Microsoft have been buddy buddy for years and with Play Station trying to launch there gaming service it probably didn't make sense to try to compete for people's cash when the other system has nothing Like that going on.
