EA Sports Season Ticket

I noticed that EA has a new Season Ticket option when I was browsing on my 360 this morning. Basically, you pay $25 a year for four benefits:

1. Get access to a downloadable version of Madden, NHL, FIFA, Tiger Woods and NCAA three days before the retail release.
2. 20% discount on DLC.
3. Premium web content (whatever that is).
4. Membership badge in-game.

Link!

Anyone gonna jump on it? I'm intrigued, mostly for the early access.

3. Premium web content (whatever that is).

Probably their online dynasty stuff.

I'm boycotting this thing like no other. They're feature locking things out for the customer and forcing them to pay an extra $25 a year. It's b.s.

And why would they have full downloadable versions of their games available and then not sell the downloadable versions? I just don't get that. Seems like that'd be a good way to kill used sales.

I wish they would sell the downloadable versions, actually, but I'd also like a disk version because I have one 360 that only has a 120 gig hard drive. Having NCAA, Madden and NHL on there at once will be almost impossible given the other DLC I own and don't want to delete.

Not remotely interested. They need to fix their games first. I'll just keep waiting for 2k to get football rights again. Until then I'm careening towards full boycott of most EA sports titles.

It's time for the non-licensed sports game to make a comeback.

Would be nice, honestly. When it comes to sports video games I prefer that they be mechanically sound. EA football games aren't that. So I'd play any mechanically sound football game at this point.

3 days is crap. That's saturday? I mean at least make it start the previous Thursday or Friday. Those games will take quite some time to download!

so far, I think it's a bad idea or at least badly implemented

It is Friday.
