You go on it then you have to buy it for 2000 MS points then I don't know cause I didn't think it was worth it.

Like He said but 6 hours is hugely over the top more like an hour, possibly more, 6.58gb file size

I assume the season pass copy of the game will stop working when the full game releases?

Nope, People with the game on disc can't play the people with the early release version of the game.

seriously 18 is nearly half the price of the game itself. You get to play for 3 days then it expires and is worthless. Such a waste of money. And if your lucky you might get your order early

Agreed. And wouldn't it expire tonight/tomorrow morning? So you UKers will have to wait 3 days for the real thing?

The pass came out on Saturday in the UK :), and expires late Wednesday/ Early Thursday morning.

Then it would be a 5-day pass rather than a 3-day. But if its a 3-day pass, it will expire 2 days before the game comes out for those who got it Saturday.

When you look here http://www.easports.com/seasonticket it says 24-29th in europe.So i assume it doesnt expire on Wednesday.

I have the EA pass, I downloaded fifa 12 early release on Saturday, the game expires at 1am on Thursday, and the game comes out Friday.

EA messed it up and allowed people in Europe to get the game 6 days early and have 5 days access.

More like people messed up by spoon feeding EA more money.

I'd love to slap some sense into the people who we're idiotic enough to do this.

Everyone has there own opinion and its there money to do what they want with, People would probably question why I spent 200 on a custom bonnet for my car when the standard one did the job. Pisses me off when people question how others spend there money.

even though I got early release myself I agree a lot of people stupid for doing so. Personally I got my pass before the madden release, and have so far used it for madden, NHL & fifa. Also will use it again when the tennis game hits next year and should even get a stint of tiger woods 13 out of my year membership. So I,LL have paid 2000msp for 4 or 5 games early release. Which isn't so bad, disagree with all these ppl pay 2000msp just to grab FIFA a couple of days early.

Well that is subjective. There's quality bonnets to be had for $200, and very much the opposite of quality bonnets to be had.

Better not have a hood-scoop unless it has either a TMIC or ITBs. ;)

....they also added FIFA Street as a bonus. With the DLC discounts, various online perks, UT bonuses (extra packs for season pass), and in game bonuses (+ points in UT matches as "season pass" bonus), I feel it was worth it for the entire cycle. Buying for one game probably not cost effective unless you are a huge fan of that particular game.
