    It was a nice idea, though usually people are used to get something… “more” out of these teases.

    When I read “First Play” I thought it was going to be something like BF Premium but for games. Like you pay in advance $200 and you get 5 games when they’re gonna be out. You save some money.

    To be fair, it was done by EA Australia and not EA global. I’m not sure why people thought this might have been something huge…
