I apologize cause this has nothing to do with the topic, but are you in the military?

NDA is time sensitive, everyone is under it at the same time.

I signed up but don't live in Florida, don't know why they can't just send it out with a code for the people they choose and have them take a survey at the end of the session.

However with leaks and all such of other things, I can see why they want the players in a controlled environment .

With that being said, E3 is in less than 2 weeks, so even if people break the NDA, or sneak pics or videos, it'll be probably the same stuff they will show the public a week later

A great opportunity for some..

It would be wonderful, awesome, [insert adjective professing great excitement], if CFM were available to be simmed thru so any inaccuracies/erros can be spotted & worked on in-house before Madden goes gold.

That way any sim stats, scouting bugs, draft bugs, gameplan bugs, team budget issues, ect. can be worked on, and the code balanced as much as possible so they can limit the scope of what patches would need to address.

just my 2.

For a two hour session, I highly doubt it. They should of only restricted it to Florida residents because I bet a lot of people who don't live in Florida will apply as well. Then again, its EA and its Madden, one of their highest selling games, they could go all out and actually fly people out, who knows.

Was gonna sign up even tho I don't live in Florida, then I saw this:

Get your pre-season on early and help us test EA Sports Madden NFL 16 before it hits the shelves! We're looking for 24 people to help us test AT our Tiburon studio in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday, June 9th.
I figured it wasn't worth wasting my time after reading that.

Good luck to the people who win. And give them hell

Honest question for anyone who is in programming and game development..what are the chances someone at this session catches an issue and its fix in time? I would assume it only minor fixes?

It looks like they are coming out of the Alpha test phase (in house developer/engineer/test team testing) into the Beta test phase (test team/some users).

They will be looking for user input and still have time to address Sev1 and 2 issues - usually items that inhibit a certain piece of functionality from performing correctly or completing. These are really game killer bugs that must be fixed before the game can be released. By the time Beta test rolls around, they should have found these already...but you never know.

Other cosmetic type issue or lower priority issues are Sev 3-4's and can either be fixed if there is time or put on a list to possibly address in a patch or next release. My experience is that sometimes Sev 3's get handled while Sev 4's almost never get addressed.

So...they have 3 months left before release of the game so there is some time available to address some issues. However, they also have to deliver the game by a certain date for CD burning and my guess is that is probably a month or 6 weeks before release...but I am not sure.

Give who hell? The developers? They want the game to be good just as bad as anyone here, like I said people will start paying attention to what they're doing with M16, especially the gameplay.
