Hey guys,

This opportunity was just brought to OS by the EA Playtesting team (not exclusively). They want to hit some of their more core audiences, and that is the niche we fit very nicely!

EA Sports is hosting a remote playtest that will start on Sep. 29th and run though Oct. 12th. If you live in the continental U.S., then we welcome you to apply for this opportunity! You will need a phone and internet access for the duration of this playtest, more details below.

Quote:
How will this work if you're selected?
  • You'll meet with our researcher who'll explain the process in a "kickoff" conference call (Sep. 29 or Sep. 30)
  • You'll play the game and fill out 5-10 minute survey about your experiences for 7 days straight (you don't even have to leave your house, but you do have to complete the surveys by our deadlines! Oct. 3rd - Oct. 9th)
  • You'll attend a short "exit" conference call with the researcher (Oct. 10, 11, or 12)
  • You'll receive your reward for participating! Participants will have the option to pick from two rewards: either 2 free EA games shipped to your door or a $50 Giftrocket gift card.
More details are available in the survey itself.

Thanks for that! I for the life of me dont know why in 2016 more games dont offer this, before games come out, to really help them stress test and just have more eyes on things. Not speaking about EA here ,just in general. Yeah i know it takes time and resources to make the test stuff, but in the long run, the benefits should outway that cost imo.

Glad to see EA stepping out and offering this. Always glad for a chance to make a game better thru feedback.Thanks again.

Unfortunately I work in marketing which excludes me from this opportunity . I do applaud them though for a shift towards customer "sourced" game development. Between this, and surveys, they are trying to build the game customers want rather than the one they think the customers should want. It is something more companies should do.

Dang work in Public Relations, did QA for EA Tiburon one summer "back in the day," and have to work all day twice during the playtest... Trifecta... I'm out! Sounds like an interesting concept though.

Is this actually related to EA Sports specifically? Or EA as a whole (and anything under that umbrella)?

What political talk? Or have posts been deleted??

My suspicion is this for Madden. Or a college football title.

Dang it. I picked the gift card, because i figured the games would be older games, that together would equal 50$ .Woulda been nice to know what the options for games were.Although , i personally already have bf4, getting fifa 17 would have been cool. Oh well. Either way, to me its really about helping out , on what ever game it involves.

I think its about madden? I got asked specifically about madden modes I play and being an owner in cfm. Or it could be a branching survey and it asked me because i filled out that madden is a game I play all the time.

The games they list may not be the ones you actually get though.

I signed up, hopefully I get selected and it is not one of those "how likely are you to refer a friend to Madden?" deals.

Rewards? Well, they didn't ask me for 'em. Guess they don't want old dudes. Those selected, please share your experiences (as much as you can, post NDA).

Me too. Pretty cool.

I'm glad that OS guys will be doing playtesting. Not to toot the horn or anything, but I feel if any group of people can give quality feedback it will be us
