EA Sports Unveils a Silly Subscription Plan

EA Sports finally announced that subscription service we heard about months ago. Called “Season Ticket,” the service will cost you $24.99 a year, and will get you the following benefits for EA Sports titles, per the announcement: full access to EA SPORTS games three days before launch, a 20% discount on downloadable game content, free premium web content and “membership recognition.”

As we said before, the early access to games will come in the form of a full downloadable version of said games. As it says, you get to play these downloadable version for three days before launch, but at launch you’ll have to go buy the game if you want to keep playing, but all your data will carry over, of course.

This doesn’t seem like that special a deal, but $24.99 for a year isn’t exactly a premium price. Might be worth it.

The Season Ticket launches today, meaning you can get it now from the Playstation Network and Xbox Live. But I’d suggest waiting until three days before Madden 12 hits to get your sub, just because.

Wow, this sounds incredibly stupid. You gain, what, the ability to play a game early by yourself because none of your friends will have it? This sounds like bragging rights for 12-year-olds at recess.

Is EA’s slogan still “Challenge Everything?” If so, they should really consider changing it to “Charge For Everything.”
