Microsoft today added to the confusion and announced a brand new 1TB Xbox One Madden NFL 16 bundle that will include a free one year EA Access subscription, and a digital copy of Madden NFL 16. Since gamers will get access to EA Access, they actually get to get their hands on Madden a few days early on August 20th (the bundle will hit retail on August 18th.).
All this will set you back $399.99, and pre-orders are already available at some retailers: Amazon for instance.
