re: EA subscription. Here's a bonus I was hoping for, but wasn't expecting. If you already have the disc version of the game. This subscription turns it into a digital version.
I have FIFA 14 on disc, and started the game via the EA app. It played as normal without prompting me for the disc. Nice....

totalownership observed the same thing about BF4 back here. He traded his disc and it didn't even download it again.

Where is the EA Access app? Or is it in some limited release form right now? I can't find it anywhere.

I was a little curious if Snap would still work when in 3D Blu-ray mode, and it still does. Not that anyone would really want to, but I just wondered if it worked.

If you are in the preview program and got your code it should have automatically downloaded after you put the code in under apps in Game & Apps.

You have to be in the Preview to get a code for it; I guess that EA is using the Preview group to beta test. Check your mail on the console. Be aware that if you look at the mail and press the "use code" button (or whatever it's labelled) you need to first note the final digit of the code then use the left bumper to get to the beginning of it, delete the leading space then right bumper to the end and enter the final digit.

The Preview Dashboard allows you to invite friends; I added you to my friends list and sent you an invitation to join. You should get XBL mail with a code for installing the required app.

I think it is for early preview members only. That is how I got mine. Once the 1408 update goes out, it should be available for everyone then.

It should be no different than if you had a rental disc and purchased the digital version.

Thanks! I just checked and 3D is working here now too. Now if I could just find all my 3D titles. I've misplaced several of them or I accidentally put them in storage.

So there appears to be some issues with 3D playback. I watched 300: Rise of an Empire and it was stuttering all over the place. I turned off the 24Hz option and it played just fine. So I'm not sure if 24Hz is broken on all BD or just 3D. I'll have to load up a regular 2D BD to test.

Others in the preview forums are reporting 3D playback issues.

If it is outputting in 1080P then 3D will be in 1080P24. Whether you have that option checked or not. Since there is no 1080P60 3D from a BD. If you have 720P output then you can have 720P60 output for 3D. WHich is why the 3D games output at 720P when playing 3D.

I mean, there's no way whatsoever that EA is going to give you their new content right away. Madden alone is far too much of a cash cow for it to be included in this until the season is over anyway. In my opinion, this is mostly a double-dip just like their previous 'Early Access' program. You get a 5 day early trial of games like Madden, and they throw in a few small bonuses just to sweeten the offer.


I'd just be shocked if they include new enough titles for it to be anywhere close to a game changer.
I loved teh Season Ticket deal for one reason. Every year I get that itch to play football and I end up buying NCAA and Madden and end up sorely disappointed. With the season ticket I would just download them 3 days early and get a quick fix then decide they suck and I could wait for them to come from gamefly. Saved me some money in the long run.

It was just Icing on the cake that I got to play the NHL series early, and I'd still go buy those when they came out.

Maybe it's supposed to be a 23.98 framerate and the XBOne is using 24 instead? Or just the opposite?

I'll need to check it on my main XBOne. I don't have the 24hz option checked on the XBOne I was trying a bunch of 3D titles with. My main XBOne is attached to my DVDO DUO and that should show me the framerate coming from each device.

Yeah, I'm seeing the same thing. I saw the report on the preview dashboard suggesting this might be Kinect IR interference?

What I'm seeing isn't a malfunction in the glasses due to IR interference. I see it with the glasses off. Stuttering may not be the best way to describe what I see. It's a full on freeze for about a half second for every 2-3 seconds of playback.

yup. its as if you were playing a pc game on max graphics but your computer could only handle minimum graphics.
Thats why I'd be curious to see if there is frame drops or whats going on.

I, too, would like to try the preview if someone is willing to send me an invite as well. I would like to download all the games being offered and I think the annual fee is a great deal.

Thank you,
