IDK. Like I mentioned above, EA probably has this as a long term plan, but everyone here is thinking about it short term, so they're up in arms over something they may not completely grasp because they're thinking about it in the wrong way.

The development team must be very meek to allow this to happen.

I doubt anywhere in there it said anything about the length of Madden (since no one pointed it out) but I do know for fact that it was very well stated that the length of early access to games could be limited to as little as two hours and exact game titles were not specified.

There was ZERO deception. Just well written releases that never mentioned specific times with the game.



What there was was a lack of communication and I will in no way, shape, or form absolve EA for that, but to say you were deceived is factually incorrect.

You can lay down terms and aspects of an agreement and still be deceptive my friend. Look at 95% of commercials out there. The fact that they stated such vague guidelines with out disclosing what they knew they were going to do all along, smells of deception. Its like if I called you up and said "Hey pal can you come over and help me move" Now in your mind your thinking "cool, ill go over help him move some boxes and furniture into a truck and thats that" but when you get there I have nothing packed, crap all over the place and I need you to pack everything up with me into boxes, and then move. Lol, I didnt lie to you but I also didn't roll out the whole structure of the move. I was being slightly deceptive. Hey, thats the business I suppose. Still doesnt sit well with me tho. But like all things, this too shall pass and like the other guy said a few post back, this time next week it wont even be a thought

Their "long term plan" is nothing more than being scared that guys will tire of their game over 5 days and not buy it.


Don't make it more than it is. It's two groups of developers, a marketing team, and a board of directors that made a decision that their fear matters more than their hardcore customer base.

you want a company who lays out terms and conditions, but still finds a way to deceive and thieve? DirecTV. Completely irrelevant here, but just an example since it was brought up.

What is scary is that they believe that their game can be played out if played longer than 6 hours. That should be just as troubling as their bleep you attitude.
