Good head start
Microsoft is rolling out another Xbox One bundle on August 18, 2015 and if you’re into sports games, it’s worth a look. For $399, it comes with a 1TB hard drive, Madden NFL 16, and a year subscription to EA Access. The latter ensures access to 12 additional games, ranging from Titanfall to Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare to Need for Speed Rivals. Lots of EA Sports titles, too.
Since subscribers can play certain Xbox One games early, you’d also be able to start Madden NFL 16 as early as August 20, 2015 — five days ahead of its launch. Granted, the perk is “for a limited time,” but any and all progress made during the extended trial should transfer to the full game.
