It took the features from Season Ticket and added to it. As I’ve said, yes, I assumed, and am disappointed. So are others. Glad you’re not “mate”

Because they are practically the same service.

They withheld how long the limited time was. When the limited time in an incredibly similar program last year was a full 3 days, that’s a pretty simple jump in logic to make. I’m glad you are happy with what you are getting, I’m disappointed.

From the Access page: “If you’re an EA Access member, you can download upcoming EA games five days before the release date to play for a limited time.” Did I misinterpret what limited time meant? It appears I did. But that sure sounds like full access to the game to me.

Poor word choice in the original post by me. You got me there. I think it was a misrepresentation based on withholding info and simplified that with “bait and switch.”

This is not a demo. I’m not paying for a demo. This has 0 to do with demos. I’m supposedly paying for full access to the game prior to release for a limited time. I don’t care what you would be happy with. I’m not happy with the amount of time for the money based on prior practices.

Glad you came up with this twice. The people buying for early access aren’t looking to find out if they want to buy the game. They want to play the game early.

You are 100% correct. As I said in my original post, it said “limited time” 5 days before. My point was, EA did not say how much time would be allowed. Given that this is program is very similar to Season Ticket, many people expected a much longer period of play. PS+ has nothing to do with this. I’m not arguing for the fact there is no demo. I don’t care about the demo. I paid for the service expecting a similar delivery from EA as what they have given in the past. I never claim they are forcing you to pay more for additional time. I understand how the program works. I’m disappointed it doesn’t measure up to the level of service provided in the past. There is no misinformation. Never said there was. But the fact that they didn’t announce only 6 hours until several weeks after releasing the program, 3 days before one of the biggest reasons for it comes into play, is frustrating to say the least.

Now if you would just tell me that I shouldn’t get so upset about a mere roster update I can complete my pedantic reply bingo.

That’s 6-7 games if you are just going straight into the game. For people that bought Access primarily because they wanted the early access to be able to put a good amount of time into the game prior to release, this is incredibly disappointing. But because you don’t see the issue everyone who does apologizes for taking up your time.

That took longer than expected. A) we aren’t talking about a demo, the service was to play the full game prior to release. B) Given the prior service like this, Season Ticket, allowed a full 3 days of play, EA had already set up a practice of allowing longer playtimes. C) If paying for something and being disappointed when they held onto a fine print detail like this makes me “entitled” to someone on a comment section, sure, whatever guy.

Yeah, super bait and switch here. My own fault for expecting more from EA as they did say you get to play the game “for a limited time” starting five days early, but given that Season Ticket gave you a full 3 days to play, 6 hours is hilariously low. I don’t understand that cutoff with a sports game at all.
