    Hey guys - I think i'm going to give in and get the Madden special edition on Amazon and get the free NFL Ticket.

    My question is when you are planning on starting the league? CHUNKNESS

    Release day shipping is $3.99 extra for some reason - and my free two day shipping gets it to me on Thursday Aug 29th. Are we planning on starting Tuesday? Or will there be some buffer time to play with the game before starting officially.

    I'm hoping for a delay in starting I may not be able to pick the game up until Friday.

    I'm sure we won't start right away. Doesn't even look like we'll be through the team picking process by that first week. Plus the question, "do we want to wait for the first roster release", always comes up as well.

    I thought I read that you don't have to have DirecTV in order to get the NFL Ticket on your computer or tablet. The whole point of it being online is for the people that can't get Directv

    Of course we can't start right away...We have to take a look at the copy and address all pertinent league issues... We have to test out features/functions and decide on what is best for the league. Team Selection will occur firmly though when the game releases.

    As I understand it you have to go through a really big process of PROVING that you cannot get Direct TV service b/c it is not available in your area...or b/c you have low lying trees that wont allow for satellite service. Basically they make it impossible for you, if you do not have Direct TV.

    Direct TV are scam artists...I hate dealing with them, I"ve had numerous jaw dropping bad experiences with them. I had them for 5+ years...numerous lies and headaches.

    If you preorder a game from Gamestop already is there a way you can go back and say you don't want to preorder it anymore and get the money back you put down?

    Just be careful...this article even references the Direct TV scams but doesn't mention them as scams...and saying your landlord won't allow a dish...WONT WORK....TRUST ME

    Even if you live in a zipcode that has 25 DirecTV contractors within a mile, you could be renting a house whose landlord refuses to let you mount a dish on the roof. DirecTV is legitimately inaccessible to you in such a case, and it's quite common. You could be a sophomore in a dorm or an 86-year-old man in assisted living. Your computer is unable to derive the truth of these circumstances by your zipcode or IP address, and the NSA is not going to tell DirecTV you could subscribe but you're too cheap to do it.

    This guy would be shocked to hear what Direct TV told me....it is nothing like this.

    I hope it does work...it would be a no brainier to buy that at 100 bucks...I anticipate problems with users who do not have direct tv.... You arent just going to call and get a code...as they make it sound...You WILL have to transfer talk to supervisors...and still get nowhere


    I wish all best of luck...and hope it works...but I just wanted to be clear about my experiences

    I'm bummed because I have had DirecTV the last 10 years. I just moved and there are a million trees around my house so a signal is not possible. Hopefully this works

    DirecTV is a scam in itself I had it a couple years ago and got the free Sunday Ticket for new customers. I called them and told them to disable it because I didn't want to be charged for it the next year but as soon as pre-season rolled around I saw Sunday ticket charges on my bill.

    Do I need a DirecTV subscription to access NFL Sunday Ticket?


    No, it's not necessary to have a DirecTV subscription. Each Anniversary Edition includes a code that can be redeemed to access the full 2013 regular season (17 weeks) of NFL Sunday Ticket on computer, tablet, and mobile devices.


    This is listed at amazon...so hopefully it does work...I would feel better about getting money back /credit from Amazon then Direct TV...so that is good at least

    What does firmly mean? I won't get the game until Tuesday, and won't be able to check it out or play till later that night. Are you expecting a response by noon on Tuesday?
