There has been lots of talk about what Electronic Arts would do with it’s subscription plan. They had to do one. Micro payments and subscriptions are the wave of the future for gaming along with DLC. (Downloadable content) Activision was first to strike with its subscription service called Elite. The thing is that was for Call of Duty where the items on there would be worth it.  The high demand for ways to extend the great multiplayer experience justify the cost of a subscription..

EA Sports Season Ticket on the other had will cost $25 per year. You will be able to get it on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. At the moment you can only use it on EA Sports games.  The only benefit at the moment, if you can call it that; is that you can play Madden 12 a whole 3 days ahead of anyone else. Then you have to go out your house, wait on line with everyone and still buy it. So for more than the price of Nexflix and Hulu Plus combined you are basically paying to play an extended demo. 

You will also be able  get a 20% discount on all downloadable content for all EA Sports titles. Like that new color socks or even a helmet.  The games that are covered in this fleecing of the wallet are FIFA, Tiger Woods PGA Tour and NCAA Football.  I said it before 2K Sports made a better game year in and year out. Oh, how I miss them. Don’t get me wrong, I will buy Madden because I have no choice it’s the only NFL game out there.
