Press Row Hangout: Madden NFL 15 EA Access Early Play Limited to Six Hours

Posted August 19th, 2014 at 9:45 am


With the EA Access details for Madden NFL 15 finally being clarified yesterday a panel featuring myself (@Pastapadre), Rich Grisham (@RichGrisham), T.J. Lauerman (@ThatSportsGamer), and Pete Dodd (@atPeteDodd) got together for a discussion on the news.

Madden will be limited to six hours in its early play period…something that was hidden until three days before it starts. EA however had no problem pushing consumers to subscribe for the three weeks beforehand. Is the six hour limitation reasonable, are those who are upset justified, or has EA’s actions made both fair reactions to have?

    I simply requested a refund and went on my way. Had it been unlimited access, I would
    have kept my purchase and been happy….instead I cancelled and will not purchase again.

    im not bothering anymore, Im cancelling my pre order, all this and its the same game anyway, if anything they made it look like 2K with the huge ball icon. They copy a 6 year old look, and were supposed to be impressed?
