"There won't be a freely available demo of Madden NFL 15 for players to download this year, an EA rep has confirmed to Joystiq. The publisher made a habit of offering a downloadable demo for its annual pro football series since December 2005, when it launched the demo for Madden NFL 2006. A demo for the game will reportedly be available only to Xbox One owners that also subscribe to EA Access, according to an EA representative that spoke with Polygon."

Or you can always buy Madden 08 for $0.99 on any last gen system and play it as the Madden 15 demo since it is the same recycled shit every year :)

No a Madden fan anymore but that's pretty big for those big Madden fans out there.

Year old games? I want to see if they put the new Madden on there when it comes out. I have a feeling they wont. What do you think? I thought about subscribing and saving 10% on it though.

Not right away they won't....but months down the road I'm sure they will.

I'm not really interested in EA Access but I downloaded it last night for a month just to check it out.....I will cancel after the month is up but I felt it was a good chance to play Madden 25 and Fifa 14 for 5 bucks since I haven't played them yet.

Hell no. They aren't going to cannibalize their actual sales. This is set up to generate revenue from games that aren't selling anymore.

I think access to new games, will be 6+ months out, especially for Mass Effect 4. I want to play Madden 25 too and if I can for "free" might as well and I can gain the $5 back if I preorder Madden 15.
