Now you get 6 hours, of a full game, that you couldn't even get fluid with gameplay in 6 hours lol. especially in a CFM, with pre-season, the new pre-game things, and transactions.
with vault games 10% off new games and MUT packs?

You are only getting 6 hours for Madden so EA can control the flow of opinions of the game before the game hits shelves. The less time you have with the game prior to release, the less you can pick apart and broadcast your opinion to the public which is why there is no DEMO for the game this year either. They took a look at how much chatter happened when the Live demo dropped last year before it hit shelves. All the negative backlash about Live demo/early access or whatever you want to call it had a major impact on sales and Scott O'Brien was having to spin a PR nightmare even before the game actually went on sale. THIS is why you get no demo this year for Madden. So why the 6 hour early access bone? Well its for XB1 only and thats because of the triangle deal between EA and the NFL and now XB1 and the NFL. I think EA had to "give them something" but they gave as little as they could to control chatter before they got your 60.00. I'm not saying Madden is going to be bad, I'm just saying they want your money before a ton of opinons can be hatched to influence your decision to purchase. Why do you think no major online video game pub puts the Madden review out before it hits shelves? Because they are asked not to by EA Sports.. its a one hand washes the other... online pubs play nice with EA and EA will keep them on the "A" list for interviews, preview content, stories, etc. Without that kind of access to the likes of EA and other big game developers online places like IGN, Gameinformer and even here would start to die.

I don't understand why y'all thought something like this wouldn't happen. I only buy Madden because there's no other option. As soon as the exclusive license is up, I'll be the first one out the door. Guaranteed.

MUT is a cash grab.

I don't do digital download games.

Vault games, I already own 3/4. . . value is gone for me.

We should all contact EA. They left this information out in order to get people to purchase a product. Then after they sold it barely announced it. This is ridiculous.

you're post is ok except for the bold there. Microsoft had nothing to do with this. Or the NFL. Sony on their own rejected EA Access, but it was offered to them.

This thread has already run its course. Sorry guys. People can't talk about this issue without gloating, insults, trolling, and the rest no reason to keep it open.
