Hopefully some more trade-in deals come down the line between now and when the games start coming out. Like Microsoft's trade any 5-crap games for $$$ not too long ago.
PS:Unless those guys know something I don't Project Cars is also coming out on PC. Maybe it's a different release date though.
Been playing Project Cars for over a year on PC already. I bought it during the crowd funding portion. It's been crazy to see the progression in the builds.

I feel exactly the same way. It is distracting and annoying.

I know it has been asked but do I have to update my controllers? I am not having a problem with them so I don't really feel the need to break out the cable and connect them (Yes this is the ultimate laziness ).

I believe the first Controller update had to do with using the headset adapter. I don't use a headset so I never bothered updating the controller so as far I can tell there is nothing mandatory about the update if you are not using the adapter.

Yesterday it was reported that EA Access early access to Madden is a six hour trial of the full game, available some days before launch, with your stats, etc, preserved if you buy.

I think the first was for Titanfall, the second for the headset adapter. No others since then (that I'm aware of)

Its crazy. If history repeats itself, there will be a B2G1 free game sale at both Target & Toys R Us sometime in Sept-Oct. After that, you have Black Friday sales (Disney Infinity Marvel starter pack for $40 vs. $75 for example).

12 games at $40 a piece is "only" $480. Its not too bad spread out over 8 months at $60 a month. I won't buy all of these games unless I can keep that streak going but there are so many day 1 must haves here, it will be challenging.

I already cancelled my Xbox Music and EA Access Subscriptions in preparation.

It would be nice if you got a system or XBL message telling you to update your controllers if it was required instead of having to check on occasion. I don't think I ever got a system update telling me there was a required controller update, the only reason I knew where to look for it when I got my XB1 Titanfall bundle was because of this thread.
yeah, that's what should happen. the user shouldn't have to manually check what's available. just send an Xbox Live text message or something.

I hadn't updated my controllers since the Titanfall time where they told us to update.

You get 5 days earlier access with a 6 hour playing limit of the full game. In 10 minutes I'll know if I'm buying a game or not.

Well, you just have to really make sure that the wife and kids are somewhere else, and you can devote your total attention to playing the game. You basically get 3 two hour sessions to use in a 5 day period. Sure, it's enough to get a feel for the game, but at the same time, you are paying this $30 per year for all this special treatment. 6 hours is kinda cheesy. Maybe they should have just had a 2 hour per day limit during the 5 day period. Would have been slightly better.

I think I'm going to fork over the $5, cause if I time it right, I'll also be able to try Fifa. I think it's worth $5 to try both of those real quick. Even if it's only 6 hours.

I agree that 6 hours seems to be a little time. Like you said 2 hours a day would've been better. I'm not surprised since it's EA. I'll try it out and most likely buy the game just to play with my friends.

Six hours seems decent to me. You should be able to check out most of the features of the game in that amount of time.

I'm sure that the time limits on story-driven campaign games will be stiffer. Lots of games you could play through half of the campaign in that amount of time (forging straight through without any side quests, etc). The time limit on the Dead Rising 3 demo was 20 minutes; hopefully it'll be better than that.

I've always felt that book samples should be more substantial. If you give me 75 pages out of 300 and I read it all, I'm pretty much certain to buy the book to finish it. There's a fine line with a single-player game demo as well.

To be fair it was really stated that it could be limited access. Most people were operating under the assumption that it would work just like their previous Early Access program (no limits at all for sports games), and EA waited until a few weeks after everyone had signed up to clarify.


That being said, I don't think it's that big a deal. Most people signed up for the free games and the discounts, not the early access. I think the only people who will be upset are the Operation Sports types who signed up for EA Access on the One just to play early and then plan on buying the full game for the PS4.

  • New IPs this year are slimmer than I thought. Destiny & Sunset Overdrive are the 2 that I am interested in the most.

Anyway, I thought I'd share the list if helpful:

here's my buy list for the rest of this year... still debating on the sunset overdrive / white Xbox One combo... try to walk away from the ledge

call of duty advanced warfare
diablo iii

Rabbids Invasion: The Interactive TV Show
Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris

Originally when we got the 1408 others in the program didn't get it. In the past week preview members not on the 1408 got the September 1409 preview and eventually all in the preview should get 1409 before the public release. I just got the 1409 tonight.
