EA Access is selling consoles confirmed.


Lmao.   To be honest when I learned about Playstation Now, I was totally sold on a PS4 until I learned it was a stupid rental service where they want people to pay full price to "RENT" a download for a few months or pay something stupid like $2.99 for a couple of hours of play.  If it was a flat fee of maybe $20 per month to play all of the old PS1, PS2, and PS3 stuff I would have gotten a PS4 in a heartbeat but it's not even close to that.  All it is, is a massive moneygrab by Sony because their 1st party games sell like crap for the most part.     EA Access is exactly what I was looking for when it came to PS Now.   I pay EA $30 for the year, and they give me a bunch of relatively new games to play.

 

As an admitted Nintendo Fanboy, I always get whatever Nintendo makes, and then I pick one other console every generation for my other stuff, and then maybe late in the generation I get the last one dirt cheap.   Right now I look at Sony and all I see is a company riding the coat tails of Microsofts screw ups in the past year to bring in sales, and when I look at Microsoft I see a company doing everything they can to make a great console.   I wouldn't be shocked one bit if this generation basically is just the reverse of last gen for this reason.   PS4 / Wii start out extremely hot and sell a ton of consoles but over time lose a ton of steam because the Wii U, Xbox One / PS3, Xbox 360, start pumping out hit game after hit game, and very quickly the tables turn.   That could all change if Sony gets on top of their game and makes some killer apps, but I'm just not seeing it right now.

Thats awesome that Plants v. Zombies Garden Warfare will be on EA Access too.    I normally am pretty harsh on EA for alot of the things they used to do but I think this new program may be just the thing they needed to get their image turned around.   I have absolutely no idea why Sony didn't want it on their console, but I suspect once they see that EA is getting a ton of people to subscribe on Xbox One then they will change their policy.   Like I said before too, I like playing sports games but since they are released yearly, I ussually just buy 1 new sports game every year (sometimes not even that) and then just play the old ones until they pull the online.   I may pick up NHL 15 when it comes out because that is by far IMO EA's best sports game, and I played the NHL games the most last gen.

 

Between getting Smash Bros, Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors and Yoshis Yarn for my Wii U, and the Halo Collection, Batman (hopefully), NHL 15, WWE 2K15 (maybe), Dragon Age, and maybe a few others for the Xbox One just in 2014, I think I am pretty much set.   I am a little torn between getting either the Ultimate Evil Diablo 3 or Destiny as my next game when they come out though.   I never really played much Diablo and always wanted to, but Destiny also looks great also. 

If you have no problem waiting then I suggest holding out for Black Friday deals. They're always good.


Black Friday treated me well last year.   I got the $150 Gold Zelda 3DS XL Bundle, plus another $15 off because my girlfriend worked there.    Wal-Mart is ussually the best spot for cheap games but around where I live (Tampa), it's just gotten too crazy. 

I'v learned too that if you just wait a few weeks, all of the stores put the same exact stuff on sale for the same price as Black Friday anyways.  Black Friday kills demand, and once demand goes down, so do prices.  



If anyone on here could invite me to the EA access beta too, it would be greatly appreciated. If not it's all good, I don't mind waiting, but I want to make sure EA hears my opinion on how they are finally getting it right, when it comes to digital downloads.



Congrats. Buy Dead Rising 3, probably the best game I've played on XBO.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Yay, welcome to the Xbox club



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

What's your gamertag? I'll have to invite you to the Xbox Preview thing and then if you're accepted then you can have EA Access

You shouldn't compare PSNow to other services since there is none like it.

In PSNow games are streamed which means you don't have to load gigabites of data before you can play. It's not meant to be used indefinitely. It is meant for the short fun of either an evening with friends or maybe a few days to see if you like the game or maybe to play it through in that time. Also on the PS4 it will let you play games that you won't be able to play on PS4 any other way.

So yeah, PSNow is completely different from PS plus or EA access. Different technology, different target consumer, different use cases, different prices.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I really don't want this thread to turn into another EA Access vs PS Now argument. :(



Sounds great. Enjoy!
