This site does have an age limit, no? I mean I hope I'm speaking to adults here and not wasting my time imparting logic into this conversation.
Is this a serious post ? you get 72 hours of access to Madden 15 on 360 and PS3 with season ticket this year. And nobody is guaranteed to purchase after that time is up.

It only cost me $5 to play FIFA so it was well worth it but the way they went about it was terribly unprofessional/bad business. Think they ever heard of the Better Business Bureau?

Didn't EA say their games would be limited? Most assume the sports games wouldn't have a limit..

You are different than me. I'm a sports fan so I already purchased Fifa and Madden. I also purcahsed Battlefield because it was one of the few good launch games. So the only game I was getting was Peggle.

Even with their future games, I already have UFC. I plan to buy Madden and Fifa again. So the only games they could put in the vault that I would want would be NHL and Dragon Age but that wont be until 2015.

So the early access was the main reason I subscribed for a month.

Not to mention most of the Season Ticket buyers bought the game anyways and it was extra money for EA ON TOP OF the 60 dollars for the game they were getting anyways just so the person can play early. So Season Ticket made sense. EA Access? not so much.

Can you not read. Season ticket, as he stated, give us 72 hours of gameplay without having to purchase the game. I swear some people.

This. Resulted in more positive sales from me than negatives. In the end they got my $25 + $60 because 72 hours of the full version made up my mind to buy the retail version when I wasn't planning to otherwise. Only negative from me was Madden 13.
