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

This is directly off the XBOXONE EA ACCESS APP, under the member benefits. It doesn't state anything about a 6 hour limitation. That should be something that is included on the benefits, if it is part of the membership "benefits". Seems more like a membership limitation if anything. This is really sad considering I probably will cancel this now and not pick up the game purely out of spite...

I'm giving you fair warning. I tried to engage in constructive conversation, but you are teetering on trolling with what you are posting. Please correct it.

PLAY FIRST

If you’re an EA Access member, you can download upcoming EA games five days before the release date to play for a limited time. Madden NFL 15, NHL 15, FIFA 15, NBA LIVE 15 and Dragon Age: Inquisition are all included, with more to come. If you love it, buy it, and you can pick up right where you left off.
I understand the anger, folks. But do not think that it is an excuse to flame on these boards.

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

You know I just thought of something... I mentioned a couple weeks ago, if they were close to finishing the game, why they couldn't bump the street date up a week. And given the proof that people have it already and the retail copies are out there; they COULD'VE done this! So not only is the game ready, and they release it earlier to appease their fan base, but then this whole EA Access thing NEVER happens, and create turmoil. SO, if they just release it tomorrow instead of next week, not only do they make the fans happy; but they avoid pissing them off. WINS all around for everyone..

I'm not happy, my man and I'm not alone. If vocalizing that I'm not happy and speaking truth is trolling to you, then you are biased. I'm just a longtime Madden player who wants to be treated fairly by the company that puts out the game that I've supported since 2001. I'm not being treated fairly because I bought EA Early Access before it was disclosed that playing Madden 15 would be limited to playing for 6 hours. The only reason to limit that time is if there is a fear that players could play the game out in 5 days. If that fear wasn't there, then there would be no such limitation.

You really don't think that's misleading? You don't think they knew Madden 15 early access would be the big selling point right now? That's why they released it now IMO. They new some would spend $5 to get to play Madden early and they held off on telling us it's 6 hrs just because they knew they could make a few more bucks.

Of course it's our fault. I only spent 5 just because I knew there might be more of a limited time than I expected.

I personally still think it's worth 30 a year. I have played 3 games of the 4 that I didn't have.

It's possible they waited to tell exactly what the time limit would be because they hadn't made a decision yet but, I doubt it. I expected a time limit based on how it was described but, I feel most thought it would be more than 6 hours. If it was 2 or 3 days early then 6 sounds better but, 5 days? IDK sounds a little shady. I guess we will have to agree to disagree.

Well, canceling your sub is one thing, but to not pick the game up too? you're just hurting yourself.
