My guess it's going to be either that or Wednesday at 6pm EST.

Also, I wonder how the process of downloading the early release is going to work. It was easy to do last year and I've yet to see a menu where we are supposed to go once it's time.

Ok so it will be the complete game, and you dont have to reinstall it when you get your copy. No one knows if there is a time limit on it for the first 5 days? And say I pay $5 to get it early and go to get a copy Tuesday. When my month is over am i going to have to reinstall the game? Will i lose all of my saves, stats, and achievements?

All your saves and stats will be there, you will not lose them.

No, once the 5 day trial has expired you will not loose any data, achievements or save game progress. Once you get the retail version all data will be transferred over.

I could be wrong so do not hold me to this but if there isn't a reason for you to get a physical copy, you could download the digital version of Madden through the store and get the 10% discount that comes along with EA Access which would essentially make up the cost of the first month (and a little more) and you would not have to worry about it.

This is correct. You get ~$7 off depending on state taxes and only pay $5. EA gets you to buy a digital copy you can't trade in or sell to someone else losing them a sale. Win/win sort of.

I hope you're right. That makes a lot of sense. It seems EA considered Friday as the download / install day, with Sat, Sun, Mon being the actual 3 days in advance. That way the customer can get a FULL 3 days of access, not 2.5 days after download.

The concern is that EA doesn't need to do that model anymore since the new consoles have better support for pre-loading. Maybe Madden will pre-load on Wednesday and be available to play Thursday at 12:01 AM EST.
