Hmm... Wonder if it's worth switching preorder from PS4 to XB1 for this...

In my opinion, the two hour quote is for story-driven EA games such as Mass Effect or the upcoming dragon age game.

Giving gamers 5 days free of those games means no one will buy it because you can get too far in the story and perhaps beat it.

For sports games, it'd make sense for EA to not limit the amount of time you have in those 5 days, but rather limit the modes available to play.

Like any play now, online head to head ranked games, with all teams available and MUT available, without time limits. But save things like the gauntlet and Connected Careers for the full retail.

Right. They've said every game will be different but it will never be less than 2 hours.

It's not. If you prefer to play on PS4 - why would that change? Heck just play the Xbox version toi get a feel and keep your PS4 pre-order. You wou wont be missing out on anything.

Re: EA Access Available Now on Xbox One (No Longer Limited Beta)

I will be very disappointed if they restrict sports games (play now, skills trainer, and CFM must be in and unlimited)

I will be pleased with a time frame demo of the BF and DA games, but sports games can not and must not be put on a limit other than modes like UT and such.

This would be a total waste of money, the $30 is not worth the vault, or just a few demos.

Vault + Trails + 5 day early sports games = Well worth $30

Completely disagree. You're paying $30 to get full access to 7-10 (guesstimate) vault games for a year. Not to mention 10% discounts on any games you purchase ($6 a pop). And then 5 days of early access, even if it is either timed or somewhat restricted it's still a great deal. Some people will just complain about anything

-EA Access will save your game info so you don't lose any of your progress. ---- -They are allowing you to download the entire, retail-ready game.
-Will offer discounts on DLC
-Get free packs or incentives for MUT or FUT.

All similar features to the Season Ticket, I doubt they'd cheat their users out of their money that bad. They've raised the price from $19.99 to $29.99 makes sense to me. They'll give you the full game, for the entire 5 days, IMO.

EA hasn't confirmed how long we will have to play the game its a min of 2 hours but up to 5 days, I would guess we will have access for 24 to 72 hours or so for sports titles games like Dragon Age 2 will prob be the 2 hour limit cant let gamers beat games before they are release they will have no reason to buy it then
I can almost promise you EA WILL NOT LET US GET THE FULL GAME EARLY meaning Ultimate Team will prob still be locked.

I disagree I think all game modes for sports titles prob will be unlocked with the of exception of Ultimate Team.
I agree with story games having a 2 hour time limit tho
