I agree sport games do not need released every year but a subscription has the consumer lose some control.* What I mean is right now I have Madden 17 and playing it fine, the changes to M18 from what I could tell were minimal to what I care about and I don't care to play M18 and I like how M17 plays.* So I can choose to stay with M17.

But if subscription based model comes along and you are say 2 years in and Madden feels great and has everything I like as a game....then EA updates the game, tweaks CFM to something I do not like...then I am stuck without the version i enjoyed playing...does this make sense?*

Not sure about this.. Looking forward to a new release every year is exciting, and I don't mind forking over my hard earned money to buy a sports game that I like. Having to wait 2 years for another version of NHL or NBA live is a long time imo.

Give me the option to customize everything about the game, then we can talk!

Why move away from what works? Look at NBA 2K and how they have improved and developed their basketball game over the years. EA needs to look at their model and how it worked out for them.*

Also, they really need to bring back Triple Play!* It's been a long time. We need another baseball game damn it!!*

Also one thing I don't like is how these game companies get away with charging a full price on digital games. Should be $10 to $20 less imo. Pisses me off tbh.

monthly subscriptions, or yearly subscriptions.** I say no, especially with digital downloads
what happens if you dont re-up does your game's license expire.*** Software companies are already doing this for their products and I am not a fan.
IN the end you may wind up paying 2/3 times the cost of the original game with a subscription.* only to pay full price for the next full featured release. then youll repeat the process all over again*

I'm guessing the subscription will be $60 a year for a game that has little change other than a roster update....sound familiar!
