there are plenty of f2p pc games that have this sort of thing, I guess it is only natural that creeps over to consoles.  I do wish they would charge less for games if they are going to try to shift to micro-transactions so heavily.

People will pay, so why not sell. No problem with it.

Hopefully this will force people to mix up their play calling a little bit more.


There will be people that pay for this.  Companies have been selling online playbooks and "film room" packages for years.  EA is probably just trying to get in on some of that action.

Pay to play online (if you don't follow New Man!'s orders and buy new), and now this?

Go go money grab.

Well, they are a business, not a non-profit.

I have no problem with it, whatever floats someones boat.

I skipped madden past couple of years  . . .
Will these report be anything other than Joe runs the money play 98% of the time and onside kicks 100% of the time?
Or is general multiplayer actually worth it now?
