The trial of 2 hours is for story line games so you do not beat the game before it is released.

Sports games are full go for 5 days
Great news. Thanks for clearing that up. Hopefully it's the same for the One, makes perfect sense.

Agreed. Can't wait to try these upcoming sports games. Makes sense for them not to allow too much time on story modes, but sports games is a completely different thing.

Is the xbox one capable of playing media from a thumb drive yet? I know the xbox 360 is and the xbox one has not been able to.

Did the external drive support fix this problem?

Wow, that seems crazy to me that they would give you full access, for the full game, for 5 days. (in regards to the sports games). Basically, you can rent the game for 5 days before the game actually comes out.

I don't know why anybody in their right mind wouldn't sign up for this, assuming you have even a passing interest in Madden, Fifa, NHL, etc, etc.

I mean, even if you just sign up for that one month that the sports game that you're interested in, is coming out in. It's only 5 bucks, and you get to demo the game for 5 days (before it's even out), for 5 bucks. That's a very good deal, assuming everything you say is legit.

Redbox charges 2 bucks for a single day, and 99 percent of the country doesn't have Redbox even renting XB1 games.

The only thing that bothers me is the credit card thing. I hate these companies having one of my credit cards on file. I guess I could just buy one of those temporary credit cards or whatever, but then I'm paying like a $5 fee just to get the damn credit card..

This bothers me too, but I found out something yesterday that I didn't know. you can delete your credit card info right from the Xbox one.

I finally got my code for the beta, so I sub'd for the year. I did have to put my CC in. but as soon as it processed, I logged onto Xbox.com to turn off the auto renewal. then went to the xbox and deleted my CC from the system.

I don't have a problem with MS having my credit card info. They have given me no reason to distrust them. Unlike Sony. I don't keep any credit card info with Sony anymore.

Besides with MS they need my card info for other things, like my Office 365 subscription.

Wow, Crimson Dragon is absolutely terrible. Even at 'free' it's priced too high.

Agreed. That's the problem with these consoles when they launch. Everything is under a microscope because there's so little out there. 2 years from now weak games wont make a blip on the radar when they drop.

So you guys with EA access up and running might be able to sell me on this and a new xbox if the service warrants. Are the games stored locally or do they stream? If they stream how is it going so far? Any word on a replacement schedule?

Stored locally which I think is going to make me have to go out and get a External Hard Drive earlier then I anticipated. One of the things I can do now is install it on the external drive then take it a friends and sign in on their Xbox one and play at their place head to head. Trash talking is so much more fun when they are sitting right there

I am loving the $hitty EA 2013 games that I can play for $5 and then kick to the curb a month from now. Don't ruin it for me Dammit! I spent hours downloading these crap games to two xboxone's; right in the middle of a major service outage no less (took forever!)

Nope. There's some confusion here.


The EA Vault you have access to for as long as they're in the Vault (and as long as you keep subscribing). Those games are Peggle 2, Battlefield 4, Madden 25, and FIFA 14.


The Early Access games you get to download and play five days before they release. That may be the full game, or it may be a feature-limited demo. It's worth noting that in past versions of this program, those have been the full game. Right now it sounds like they just wanted to leave the option to change their mind. Games mentioned for this feature are Madden 15, NHL 15, FIFA 15, NBA Live 15 and Dragon Age: Inquisition. However, on release day, you lose access to those unless you buy them.


As for how this program is financially successful if it means people will demo the games and then not buy them, I suspect that a large number of the Madden diehards will take advantage of this feature, which gives EA a chance to gain back lost revenue. People who are already buying the games anyway (admittedly, those users do now get 10% off, but I have seen a surprising number of people at Operation Sports mention doing EA Access to play Madden early on the Xbox One, and then buying the final game on PS4 at full price) will pay for this just to get an early start.

Thank you. I think I got it now. Glad to know I won't lose access to games already "purchased" as soon as tomorrow!

We are in the middle of an unprecedented lull of quality new release games, but $5, maybe $10 bucks will surely fill some down time for a month or two.

Generally and going forward, I'm not interested in 1 year old games, especially ports and broken games. Membership will be cancelled accordingly.
