Forums - Sony Discussion - EA Access subscription service coming to PS4

Electronic Arts is bringing its EA Access subscription service, which offers early access trials to new games and a library of existing games as part of “the Vault,” to PlayStation 4 this July, the publisher announced on Tuesday.

EA Access for PS4 will cost $4.99 per month or $29.99 annually, the same price as the existing EA Access service on Xbox One.

Sounds like good value to me.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

About time Sony wised up on this.

It is a good value if you’re into EA titles. Hell, any time you’re going to buy an EA title that costs $60, you save a dollar by buying a month of EA Access for $5 and then saving $6 on that title with the 10% discount.

except to save a dollar this month, most people will be spending 5 the next month for nothing, and the month after that, and so on until years later when they realize they added a new "rent" to their lives with very little to show for.

it's the same reason why I personally don't like the games pass model of business from Xbox, there's no incentive to make quality games if the customer is already paying a rent for them whether they are good or bad

You pay $5 for a single month subscription, so in the following month you spend nothing because the subscription has already expired.

If you are into EA titles, sure.

For me, short of them paying me to use the service, I'll pass.



Get past all the (shitty) sports games and there's actually some decent games worth playing for a fiver a month, although I wouldn't make it a permanent thing, just subscribe for a month or two as time goes on

Well they keep on adding games. I expect people giving it a try because it has plenty of EA games that you maybe want to try. Only issue the PS4 has is no bc, so game like skate 3/ssx /mass effect trilogy/dragon age franchises/Dead space trilogy etc will not be available?

Oh yeah that's actually a good point... wonder if they'll cut the games from the service on PS4 or find another way around it

I'd still pass.
