So from a business perspective, Mr. Adult, giving someone access to a game for 72 hours is as good a decision as giving someone 6 hours of access?

Which did you think makes more sense? The program that gives you games that are a year older, for free, gives you incentive to buy dlc via discounts and gives you a good 6 hour taste of a new 60 dollar product, or the old system?

One obviously adds more value to the customer and the business, no?

Not to mention this program isn't limited to sports titles.

Yet people are acting like EA is some kind of thief

Re: EA Access Gives You Just Six Hours Of Madden NFL 15 Gameplay

I knew Madden trial was going to be only six hours two weeks ago, and still purchased EA Access after the fact. I get four games in the vault(plus more later on), and get to play Madden for six hours, earlier than I would have. I can get a pretty darn good feel for what a game plays like in six full hours of time spent with it. Hell, I have purchased full price games that had only 9-10 hour single player campaign.

For me, that's a pretty good deal -

I knew there was a catch. Glad I waited to pull the trigger. I mean 6 hours? Whats the point?

Well this is nothing short of disappointing, but not at all unexpected given this is EA we're talking about.

I'm glad that I only did the one month $5 subscription, which I am cancelling today.

I'm also glad that The Golf Club comes out tomorrow, now I have even more time to spend with that game.

The problem people here are having trouble understanding, is that you can pay just $5 and this is not a Sports exclusive feature. You get access to vault games, %10 off Madden 15 and everything applies to non sports games as well.

Re: EA Access Gives You Just Six Hours Of Madden NFL 15 Gameplay

Dont understand why people are saying this is a bad deal lol,
You are getting 4 games for free,10%off digital version and 10% off ultimate team packs,early access to the games...

Overall its a great service unless all you care about is the sports games i guess,but even with it being 6 hrs you will end up saving money off just the ultimate team packs..

Disappointed with the 6hrs gamplay limit but overall the program is worth the money in the long run.

Perhaps, perhaps not.


The fact remains that those of us who used to subscribe to EA's Season Ticket program got exactly that. It was not unreasonable to assume that would be the case here as well. To call out unhappy consumers for making that assumption is asinine.
