    Sure do. I'm trying to find a definite answer from someone who has used season ticket before. I've seen a few different times. Thanks bud.

    It expires once the retail version is officially launched in stores.

    So this is the whole game? The early release. Just a digital copy? Or is it just online or just offline? Im confused.

    It is a full retail copy that you download to your hard drive if you have EA season ticket (I think that is the name). So you download a digital copy and have access to everything in the game that you would if you bought a physical copy.

    Once madden releases on Tuesday the 28th, the early release that you downloaded will become inactive and give you a message to purchase physical game.

    each purchase is only good for one year. so if bought season ticket for Madden last year (or NCAA) you'll need to buy it again. If you bought it for NHL or FIFA you're still good.

    If you purchased the EA season ticket for $25 after Aug 23rd 2011, you should ok to DL. Aug 23rd the day it released last year i believe. You can check this in the EA app on xbox

    It's 25 dollars correct? I'm a couple days away and I'm really thinking about getting it but wanted to know if you guys may know how many G's it will be to DL.

    I think it is going to be at least 5-6 GBs, i believe last year was just under 5 Gbs. It can be as large as 7 GB though, but i'd say 5-6 GBs assuming everything is included.

    EA season ticket is $25.

    If I can find a way to make my GB down to 6gigs (seeing how I only have 8 this may be a hard task) I may be getting the ticket. I mean I'm only DLing it for the couple of early days and then buying it correct?

    Just realized that I have a 12GB drive and I have 7.6 space which should be more than enough! Guess who's getting the game early??? :D:D:D:D

    If needed, you find a cheapo flash drive and plug to USB for additional storage, move some of your content over to the flash drive and dl madden, once done, move back over to the HD or just leave content in flash drive as is.

    I believe you are allowed up to 16gb in additional storage through flash drives with 8gb max on each USB port. You can find one for pretty cheap on amazon.
