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

As I see it EA has two options to escape this waist high quick sand they've willing and over confidently jumped into:

1) Issue an apology for not having the customers wants in sight and add AT LEAST 10 hrs to the 6 hr restraint

OR

2) Issue a full statement explaing the stipulations of the 6 hrs. Is it only on field time calculated or does the timer start as soon as you push start from the load screen. And if it is 6 hrs only for full access, atleast keep other parts of the game open like practice mode, gauntlet, roster screens and other smaller pieces of the game

One thing I can say is it's obvious why EA would not want to release a game 5 full days in advance if there is a campaign mode. (Because people would play nonstop until they beat it, obviously).

But with a sports game, you can't really "beat" the game. Like I don't think anyone will play CFM and once they win the Super Bowl they will never play again. I think that is a legitimate point to be made (I can't take credit for it, read it somewhere else by someone who was complaining lol)...

Don't expect an apology to be coming. Peter Moore has tweeted what I would consider the EA stance on this in the last 40 minutes.

Thanks for the heads up. Yeah I don't expect anything either.

If the census follows through with their threats of canceling their subscriptions, I''d love to be the fly on the wall in the next shareholders meetings. lol

"Peter, you told us that it will be a hit!! Peter!!!!"

The good thing is we're just a week from official release. Once the game drops, this will just be a slight bump in the road.

I'm not sure it is going to be as bad you as you may think. Again, I have found more people that are happy with their one year subscription than I thought I would.

People like cheap games. And when you put AAA titles up (even launch titles) many casual gamers will jump at the chance to play them for little cost.

I'll say it again, we are the minority. Once we understand that, the business model they are using is very solid.

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

If they never go back on the 6 hours I wonder if the program might evolve and end up making it a permanent offer... A month from now if someone is interested in Madden then $5 gets them the 6 hour trial and access to the vault and discounts. Several months from now $5 gets you a taste of a number of franchises as well as access to new vault games like NFS and PvZ. The perk would stll be valid for 'early access' but remove the end of it.
