Free NFL Sunday Ticket with Madden NFL 25 Anniversary: Is It Worth It?The 2013 NFL football regular season is upon us and with it the opportunity to gain access to watch every single game via NFL Sunday Ticket. This package isn’t free or cheap with pricing starting at $44.99 per month for the standard package and $59.99 per month for the Max package that includes live online streaming via mobile devices. What’s an NFL fan to do?

For the past few months, online retailer Amazon.com has been selling an exclusive version of EA Sports’ Madden NFL 25 football video game for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Dubbed the Madden NFL 25 Anniversary Edition, this version costs $40 more than the standard edition and includes a couple of phenomenal perks – namely access to NFL Sunday Ticket.

Let’s break down the pricing of Madden NFL 25 Anniversary with free (sort of) NFL Sunday Ticket and see if it’s truly worth buying the game based on the price and what you get.

With the actual game priced at $59.99, if you buy the Madden NFL 25 Anniversary Edition then you’re paying $40 for the other stuff. That stuff starts with the Madden Ultimate Team Subscription, described by Amazon as follows, “Starting Week 1 of the NFL season and continuing through Week 17, receive one pack a week for use in Madden Ultimate Team. The Madden NFL 25 Anniversary Edition packs feature 2 rare players, 4 silver players and 4 bronze players.” Let’s place a value of $3.99 per month on this which brings its total to $16. That leaves $24 left.

For simplicity’s sake, let’s value the entire regular season of NFL Sunday Ticket live online streaming via mobile devices (cell phones, iPads, laptops, etc) at $15 per month, the difference between the standard and Max packages. That brings the value of the Anniversary Edition extras up to $74, or $34 above the added cost. On top of that, the Anniversary Edition also includes a code to receive $10 off per month for the first year of service if you sign up for the NFL Sunday Ticket standard package for televisions. Now the value is well over $100 and you’re still paying $40 extra.

The bottom line is the Madden NFL 25 Anniversary Edition with free NFL Sunday Ticket is worth the $99.99 price of admission and then some. As a result the Xbox 360 and PS3 game continues to remain in the top 5 bestsellers list at Amazon.com.
