New program, old problems.
'Madden 15' is due out in just over a week, but the biggest buzz around the game isn't due to the new defense features. No, the biggest difference between this year's 'Madden' and last year's (apart from the simultaneous new gen/old gen release) is due to the new EA Access program.
Normally, fans across console would have had a taste of the new game by now. Something along the lines of a 12 minute (game shortened) two team demo. This year though, there is no demo. Instead, for fans willing to pay into the EA Access program, can play an early access version on the Xbox One. That version is still a few days away, (supposed to be five days early), but what that version entailed hadn't been made clear until today.

And there you have it, later this week, EA Access members can play a six hour trial of 'Madden 15.' Those EA Access members that then opt to buy the digital version (which will be 10% off for EA Access members), will be able to carry over their stats and achievements, but they will have to wait until August 26th.
