EA Access Question

If this has already been answered please close. After your 6 hours are up, will they allow you to purchase the game and still play early?

Re: EA Access Question

Most likely not. I think you would be able to download it ahead of time though but it will not be playable until 8/26.

Thank you! In my opinion, I would think something like this would be a nice feature that would soften the blow.

It's actually a pretty decent idea for the following:
1. Get people to purchase the subscription.
2. Limit the early purchases from other people (Ebay, Craigslist, etc.)
3. Get people to buy their game
4. Make people go digital and limit the trade-in business.

Re: EA Access Question

I was thinking about that also. Something like. If you just got EA access then they limit how much time you play early, but if you have EA access and brought it digitally then you could play for as long as you want.

You already playing it early because of EA access so what would be different from allowing people to buy it early after the 6 hours is up. I really don't see why it shouldn't be that way.

That would be a great idea and give more people the incentive to buy the game digitally. But I highly doubt EA will be doing that though.

Re: EA Access Question

Didn't really consider it before, but it would be genius for EA to do this. Then the people who are pissed about the limited 6 hours could go ahead and buy the game that they were going to buy anyway. You've got to figure digital sales would increase considerably. Plus, the game is already out there, so I don't see the downside for EA.

Also may have given them a few extra impulse buys. Would have been a fantastic idea.
