A new subscription service has been announced for some of EA's games. It entitles you to numerous things, such as early access to some of EA's major titles (Madden, Tiger Woods, FIFA, NCAA Football and NHL.) It also entitles you to 20% off all DLC from EA titles, free access to premium web content (expanded creation center functions: create more teams, more players, custom graphics options) and the best feature, an exclusive

We've spent considerable time listening to fans and building this program, and our goal has been to create something for our core audience, people who want to play our games sooner; who either play, or have always wanted to play, several different EA SPORTS games; who enhance their games with downloadable content; or who have an appetite for premium web content. It's not unlike the way I augment my sports television experience by having memberships to MLB.tv to watch the Red Sox and Liverpoolfc.tv to watch the Mighty Reds.
We also know EA SPORTS Season Ticket isn't for everyone, which is why non-subscribers can continue to play exactly the way they do today. Our games on disc continue to have all the same great content, and nothing changes. This is entirely additive content for our biggest fans.
If you would like this, head over to the Game Marketplace section of the dashboard, search 'E' for EA SPORTS APP, costly of 2000MSP and download. This seems to be a great deal, getting to play games three days before release, exclusive content and more. All for a yearly price of 2000MSP.
