Yeah but you got to wonder how many are wanting to test the game and give feedback versus people just wanting to play the game.

Yeah, that's why I'm glad a lot of OS'ers got codes. I think there's a good chance of our group here providing a lot of quality feedback.

They give away just as many FREE copies of the game every year too, so by your logic the finished game should be free to everybody too. Not just an EA thing either, all game companies do.

Now specifically with this beta, people should be glad they opened it a tad bit more this year. Because usually not this many people get to even play a Madden beta. Normally it be restricted to the Game Changers program only and you wouldn't even had known about it.

I'm talking about testing, and how even a few hundred is a small sample when you consider the overall numbers. It was a reply to someone saying it should be open beta just because they gave out hundreds of beta codes.

I don't know how you stretch that to saying my logic means the game should be free...that's not even close to what my statement meant. Perhaps you meant to quote the original message about making it open beta?

Re: Open Beta: Why Not?

I think most people feel left out cause others are testing the beta version. Well, don’t worry....we get to beta test the retail version.

This time next year, they’ll still be patching this game.

Re: Open Beta: Why Not?

I think a open beta would be good. I think there really missing out on valuable feedback. Alot of older Madden players have families of their own & dont have the time or want to sit & watch twitter all day to try and grab a code. Not really respecting how they're releasing the codes. Ive had the game reserved for over a month now & I cant even catch a beta. Just puts a really bad taste in my mouth.
