    EA Sports Season Ticket

    Post by Shadez on August 19th 2011, 6:41 pm

    02-August-2011
    For months, if not the past several years now, I’ve made no secret that I think the global language of sports uniquely positions EA SPORTS to be a leader in the digital transformation of our industry. While we’re far from there yet, we have been laser focused for some time now on connecting fans from across the world through sports and games, on delivering year-round products and services, and on creating persistent experiences that span platforms.

    Videogames have become the most dynamic - and social - form of entertainment on the planet, and our goal of introducing compelling new ways to enhance the experiences fans have playing our games has never been more clear. That’s why today we’re pleased to announce the launch of EA SPORTS Season Ticket, which is another step in supporting our vision of transforming how deeply fans can connect with the sports games they love through digital products and services.

    EA SPORTS Season Ticket is an all-new program that provides new benefits for a better gaming experience on five EA SPORTS titles for the Xbox 360 and PS3. For a $24.99 annual fee, members will receive full access to EA SPORTS games three days before launch, a 20% discount on downloadable game content, free premium web content and membership recognition. You can read more about EA SPORTS Season Ticket here.

    We’ve spent considerable time listening to fans and building this program, and our goal has been to create something for our core audience….people who want to play our games sooner; who either play, or have always wanted to play, several different EA SPORTS games; who enhance their games with downloadable content; or who have an appetite for premium web content. It’s not unlike the way I augment my sports television experience by having memberships to MLB.tv to watch the Red Sox and Liverpoolfc.tv to watch the Mighty Reds.

    We also know EA SPORTS Season Ticket isn’t for everyone, which is why non-subscribers can continue to play exactly the way they do today. Our games on disc continue to have all the same great content, and nothing changes. This is entirely additive content for our biggest fans.

    Make no mistake, a new initiative like EA SPORTS Season Ticket will continue to quickly evolve and transform to meet the demands of our fans. In the meantime, EA SPORTS Season Ticket represents an opportunity for us to deliver unique digital offerings that will continue to transform gaming experiences and provide a flexible platform for enhancements based on feedback.

    These are exciting times, not only for EA SPORTS but for our industry as a whole, and I’m proud of the work that we’ve undertaken to transform how and where our fans now interact with games and each other.

    I’m eager to hear about your experiences using EA SPORTS Season Ticket so check it out and let me know what you think.

    I was gonna waste 25 dollars on that as I have a lot of expendable money, but it's probably not really worth it. lol

    I only play one and the only point would to be able to get Madden 12 3 days early. Honestly not worth it so I won't. It's just tempting.

    If you look around your area for a mom and pop shop they'd probably sell the game earlier for double the price. I've done that in years past. I've also driven to small towns 2 and 3 hours away to get the game early from mom and pop shops.

    If you look hard enough you'll find a spot. Me being in Chicago those mom and pop shops don't exist in the big city.

    You serious? I went to a mom and pop in lower Manhattan last year and got the game a week early last year. This year I want to make an adventure out of getting Madden as I move into my college dorm 3 days before release, so I don't want to get it early from a store or anything. But getting it 3 days early via download still is rather tempting.

    They should have some mom and pops in Chicago if there are several in NYC.

    Game will be released for download Friday 6 pm est I just heard.

    Download will be likely around 6-6.5 GB's.

    Those considering it don't subscribe until Friday morning-afternoon. It will insure you get Madden 13 early next year.

    Yea, I only by Madden and occasionally MLB The Show. This past year I only purchased Madden so the EA Ticket wouldn't be worth my while.

    But I thought I'd share the E.A.S.T. info with everyone else. Lots of folks play Madden, NCAA, MLB, Tiger Woods Golf, ect., ect.
