Re: EA Access Question

That would be a great idea although I don't know if release date rules with retailers prevent it.

Re: EA Access Question

i really dont see the downside to doing this. Everybody who has ea access already have access to the full game. so why not just allow them to buy the whole game after you time is up. makes perfect sense.

Re: EA Access Question

I really don't see the downside to EA allowing full early access to people that purchase the full game digitally. It's a locked up sale. By not allowing purchase until the release date, they possibly lose some impulse purchases or lose out on digital sales to people just finding a good deal elsewhere. Retailers may not like it, but that didn't stop full early access from the season ticket program. Different services sure, but the concept is literally the same except 3 vs. 5 days early.

From the EA Access twitter " Once your six hour trial is up, you'll have to wait until the release date to play the game. Progress will carry over, however!"

Re: EA Access Question

Ea early access started to slow down the mom amd pop shops from selling early for extra money. Don't like this idea either. Just release the game on a Friday which is what people really want to play over the weekend.

This is a great idea and it is what they SHOULD do.

EA Access Question

I'm buying digital, using the 10% off, and I'm really hoping that by taking advantage of the 6-hour "early access" that it basically acts like a pre-load...when Xbox Live lets me pay at 12:01am on the 26th, I REALLY don't want to have to wait and re-download the entire game again.

Could someone with EA's ear maybe ask them on twitter? After I download it tomorrow morning, do I have to re-download on Tuesday or does it just unlock what is already on my hard drive?
