    EA Are TOOO damn greedy. The greediest corporate company I've ever witnessed. Yeah I understand server fee's and such but no other game devs/publishers do that, and every other company is far smaller than EA's.

    Can't believe that there's plenty of people already who are saying that they'll fork out the cash. What are they thinking?

    This is a joke! How can they possibly justify this? Trailers are supposed to be free so that you can try to judge if a game will be good enough to earn your cash. Expecting people to pay for a trailer is just plain wrong.

    Nice to see the public admission of EA's desperation to feed their crack habit...

    I think this will turn out to be one of those things that EA puts down as "a misunderstanding".

    The general rule for me these days is just to avoid EA games, they churn out so many so quickly they all tend to be bug ridden with god awful support.

    wow, simply put, nah ill give it a miss thanks.

    Its not like its gonna be a mystery what the game is like, its american football, EA american football at that. It'd be cheaper to buy last years and make pretend that the graphics are a little bit better

    after being a beta tester for EA many moons ago I so knew this was coming.

    I hope it fails miserably - otherwise its the route to far too much paid for content
