How playing Madden online could cost you $10 - Plugged In - Yahoo! Games This right here is ridiculous. Not that I play madden but EA is always doing something to make that extra $. I hope this isnt a trend that catches on with any other yearly games. Some people cant afford the new games and have to wait for last years game to be cheap used. This just makes the game that much less affordable. Its already a YEARLY game why the need to charge extra?
