I highly doubt sonys decision had anything to do with the amount of hours we get early access to madden. It had everything to do with their subscription service that is already in place.

On the other hand you can limit it to six hours and piss off your customers such as me and we cancel EA Access. I know if I was confident in my game I would not be making the same decision EA is making from a business perspective.

Yep. Absolutely. From a technical standpoint as some of the mods have pointed out, we were told there 'may' be limited access for certain games. Many of us thought because season ticket gave unlimited access, this would, too. So, ultimately there were assumptions made on our part, and maybe lack of full disclosure on ea's part. But, this is the point that's starting to stick out to me, and purely from a biz perspective. Legitimately, what do they have to lose by allowing unlimited access for the 5 days. If 6 hours doesn't give u a clue as to what the game is doing (bad or good), I don't see what the harm is in giving the people what they want. Is it playable online for the 5 days? Are their servers going to be used for 5 extra days costing them jillions of dollars? So, for me, if you're not losing anything, u should've just made it unlimited. This would've gone such a long way towards making positive relations with fans again. And, if they are fearful that no one will buy the game after trying it out, I guess that's their biz decision. IMO, the better decision would be to help win back the fan base, but I'm not personally all about the benjamins, so not sure their entire strategy, here. So, here again, I think someone in their PR dept really needs to step in and help out their image.

For the Ea Access people it says 5 full days so does that mean Wednesday or Thursday.

they rejected Access because of their own service in the majority yes, but you gotta think they had an inkling of what EA was pulling.

Well they only difference is the addition of "The vault" and an afforded monthly subscription.

The census seems to think it's Season Ticket plus more. The Internet is heated.
