I respectfully disagree. We see videos every year that do not show issues that ultimately show up - a video wouldn't capture the Qb injury issue. The videos they release are about marketing and they also to an extent control the source.

My biggest doubt is they touted replayability in this years game. If they believed in that, then they would expect to retain sales despite offering unlimited access.

They have to be concerned about something because they've provided unlimited access in the past.

No I'm pretty sure I didn't think it was the same because I read the fine print before I paid my yearly fee.

People seem to forget there is other value to ea access. When I signed up madden was an after thought.

The Internet is never heated about anything, come on that's crazy talk!

I know.

I even said this here, multiple times. Almost exactly 3 weeks ago. You know how long it took for someone (that's even in this thread defending this 'decision' [which it never really was]) to tell me I was wrong? Five. Five minutes.

Everyone got their hopes up for no reason. They did this to themselves, in all honesty. I know everyone wanted it early but that was never going to be part of EA Access.

If 1 million people buy this within the first week, that's 2 million eyes looking for issues that pop up.

There is already a 1st day patch coming down the pike.

I highly doubt they are concerned about something leaking out or the game would be further delayed, ticking off more people, but, I've been wrong before.

I do agree it's a marketing ploy, no doubt.

Haha Its crazy because yesterday while on Twitter and sports feeds the census were heated, mainstream sites like IGN and Gamespot were all lollti-dottie. This morning some of the outrage has spilt over.

I wonder what's going through EAs minds right now. It may not change but it's definitely not being ignored. lol

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

So am I the only one that feels like EA just may reverse this decision based on all the negative feedback? Sure, it'd be reactive, but they have the power to this for Madden. A LOT of people canceled their subscription after hearing this news. I'm not arguing the value of thedeal, it's actually a great deal...but I think it's safe to assume that a lot of gamers would've held out for a while had the Madden specifics been known from the jump. Madden is on its own island, and for many of us, this is the only game we get AS HYPED for, every year. Am I alone in thinking there may be a reversal? Is my fanboyism clouding my level of optimism?
