I don't want or need your money. You missed the point my friend.

Do you think they would have gotten soo many interested clients, if from the beginning they said "Madden 15 early access will be available 5 days before release date, for only a 6 hour trial period" I can almost guarantee "Ea early access" would have flopped. So to sum it up, people feel more cheated and swindled more than anything. Too top it off Ea still hasn't commented or release an official statement that had this community in an up-roar. Its an atrocity of bad business moves on EA's part.
To be fair, right off the bat EA said that the amount of access and how long the access lasted would vary from game to game.

Correct, but why not say that from the beginning. Why not answer that question right away when it was asked a month ago and everyday since then. I can almost guarantee that who ever runs the Ea access page wasn't supposed to give out that information just yet. Now look at the **** storm....

I don't feel cheated or swindled mostly because I have known for a while I was not getting 5 full days of madden.

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

Ok, this is where we attempt to have constructive conversation.
On one side: Yes, it was never clearly stated (until today) the exact time limit. We KNEW there was a time limit on early access, but not the exact amount. To this point, 6 hours is PLENTY of time to decide whether you like the game enough to purchase it.

Let's talk about purchasing. You get 10% off digitally. A $60 purchase comes to $6. If you buy 5 EA game digitally, the yearl subscription has now paid for itself.

It also includes Vault titles (currently 4 of EA's most popular titles).

I'm not schilling for EA. Today, on my Twitter page, I said that I was happy the time limit was announced, because it made it easier to cancel my subscription. And for me, that is true. I will be purchasing my EA Sports games on the PS4. But I waited to post until I was less angry. And looking at it as a whole, EA Access is a valid deal for Xbox One gamers looking to go digital. The early access is only one portion of the subscription.

EA Access is not Season Ticket, and it was never meant to be.

Now, if you can't post maturely about this situation, don't. Enough bans have been handed out already, please don't make us as a staff continue.
