Through Early Access you will have full functionality - including online play - with the exception of purchasing additional content and access to the Ultimate Team modes in Madden NFL 13 and NHL 13.

Yes. For Sony PS3 you are able to upgrade but for Microsoft XBOX 360 users, unfortunately at this point it is not technically possible for us to offer. Here is a step by step process to purchase the full digital release:
*Note that for Madden this function is only available in North America on PS3
PDLC refers to Paid Downloadable Content, which enhances your gaming experience. In NHL 13 for example, you get a discount on all Boost Packs and Ultimate Team card packs purchased with real money. That's an unlimited discount, meaning the more packs you buy the more you save and, more importantly, the greater chance you have at creating your Ultimate NHL 13 team! The type of PDLC varies across the participating EA SPORTS titles but the 20% discount is good on all participating titles. You'll always be getting more content with every dollar you spend. The 20% discount does not apply to DLC purchased with in-game achievement points such as Ultimate Team Card Packs purchased with Coins. Additionally, the 20% discount does not apply to the full game itself.
Yes. Achievements/trophies you earn during Early Releases (while connected to EA Servers) will unlock once you purchase and log into the EA Servers with the retail version of the game. It's the perfect way to get a headstart on the competition.
Sadly, no. EA SPORTS Season Ticket applies only to the console you purchased it on and is not transferable between PS3 and Xbox360.
When you first go into the Ultimate Team mode after subscribing to EA SPORTS Season ticket you will receive a message along with your first pack(s). From there, one more pack will appear every seven days until you have received all packs. But don’t forget to come back every week because they expire after seven days and once they're gone, they're gone!
