EA Access Stumbles with Madden 15 Trial, Suffers Six-Hour Launch Delay

When EA announced their competition with Playstation Plus, everyone  was watching to see how they would do. While several criticized their lack of titles, they’ve now struggled with those few titles, when technical difficulties delayed many people six hours from downloading the timed trial of Madden 15.

Seeming to put the Onus on Microsoft, EA Access tweeted this:

That was two hours in to the delay, according to their most recent tweet announcing that Microsoft had fixed the problem. Some players are still tweeting that the program is asking them to insert a disk before playing, which would defeat the purpose of EA Access, but the delay is likely to be fixed for everyone soon.

No word from EA if any sort of extension to the timed trial will be offered as compensation.
