The hysteria is relative, game could come out after the Super Bowl and the circus (trying to find an early copy, the dust-up over early access, etc) would follow.

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

After having time to think all of this over, I will say this.

A. EA Access is either $5 a month or $2.50 a month if you do a year. So with the vault, if theres something in there you want to play and not buy, you can pay a monthly rental fee for it. I'd rate that B+ (Will be an A+ when it gets really full of titles)

B. Limited trials were discussed up front, but they were not clear as they should've been with sports titles. Everyone assumed that it would be 2 hours or limited with the story mode games, and Battlefield, but not sports titles. I'll rate this C- (For EA not being up front, nor following the EA Season Ticket.)

C. EA Season ticket was 72 hours of gaming, and EA Access is 6 hours right now. That 6 hours is weak compared to the 72 hours. Now had EA given us 10 hours that would've been even better. Most gamers play 2-3 hours a day, but with it being on a weekend. 20 hours would've been the target number. I would be perfectly happy with 2-4 hours per day of gaming given out. F-

Wish everyone would just offer demos to those who pre-order. Seems that is fair...

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

I was hoping to enjoy the EA early access for 5 "FULL" days instead of "Clock Watching" for 6 hours

I can't say I'm not disappointed but it's still worth its weight and gold for what I'm currently getting from it in BF4 & Fifa 14

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.
The NBA Live 14 demo released on November 19, which was the exact same day that the full game went on sale at stores.

NBA Live 14 also was not shown to the public prior to its release, apart from E3, where all they had available to play was the one person practice mode that was later patched into the game.

Meanwhile, multiple games of Madden NFL 15 have been streamed in full, and most of its modes have been demoed on Twitch. There is plenty of footage out there for people to make an educated decision on whether or not they will like the game, which is pretty much the complete opposite of how NBA Live 14 was handled, prior to its release.
