I haven't actually rented a game in 10+ years, but I essentially 'rent' all of my games by buying them and selling them (mostly on eBay) if/when I get tired of them.

I don't mind this because I have never really enjoyed a demo (I hated the 2k11 demo but 2k11 was my favorite game last gen) so i don't mind this--the only issue is that the announcement is so late that it makes me think there are some serious bugs still being ironed out by the dev team and knowing Tiburon, that is terrifying.

That's my opinion anyway, someone else might think I am talking out of my ***, but it makes a bit of sense from a business standpoint to me anyway.

Nope, spot on and that's pretty much my point.

I expected a demo for nhl because of the reasons you mentioned and because this is their first game this gen.

Madden had none of those reasons.


Point being, both games have reasons either to release a demo or not to none of which have anything to so with EA access. If that were the reason for no demo ea would be consistent across the board.

Re: CONFIRMED: No Madden NFL 15 Demo

Thanks for the info about Sony not being on board with the subscription. I have faith in the Sony/PS4 upper management to make the right decisions. I've been thoroughly pleased with my next gen experience to date.

I have bought nearly every Madden since 2001. I already wasn't planning on buying Madden 15, but I was going to try the demo like I normally do. I guess EA doesn't want a chance to impress me? (And yes I know I could rent it) but it seems like poor marketing for EA to NOT want me to have an easy download to try. Whatever, I guess I'll just spend my $60 bucks elsewhere.

You haven't bought one since 06/07. When's the last time you PLAYED one? If 06/07 is the answer again, then get it. M25 next gen was WAY beyond what 06/07 was; and 15 is just pushing it further.

So you have been through 13 years of madden purchasing, including M06 to M11, and THIS is the year you are not buying? You have to provide some more insight on that decision, because it seems IMO ludicrous.

Please help me understand your reasoning.
