After a short beta test, publisher Electronic Arts is officially launching its subscription service.
I'm very curious how this will do.
Wow... i was betting this was going to go live on tomorrow press conference, Nice MS
Count me in!!!
NO. Why are they letting everyone in? Man... I felt so privileged to be included. Now I come crashing down to earth with nothing to show for it besides a good value service from EA.
Downloading madden and FIFA now!
For $30 a year? Count me in.
I'll sign up tonight when I get home
i will stay away from this service :/
yes, because you have a PS4!!
i also own an x1.. and bf4 and i have a live sub... and i played many games on 360.. so i have a good history with ms and more so with ea.. i rly can't stand the thought that ea is bringing just that to x1 what nearly nobody of us gamers wanted and that is always online and drm on console. and of course ms jumps on board but whatever...
You are on denial!!, for $30 a year is a bargain!!
ok i give you this.. i really can't see by now anything good by this except the pricing. looks like it is pretty acceptable but i we all have to see how this pays out and maybe it chances my mind over time. maybe ea changes as a hole and in a few years we all talk about the new glory days of ea and always online and so on but today not. i see a company that wants just more money for old games or in case of bf4 broken games.
Must be overwhelmed now because its hard to connect.
Don't buy into this guys you will be dooming the video game industry.
And Ps now will not
Why do I have disagrees?? what i'm saying has nothing to do with xbox you dolts it has to do with the service.
Xbone fanboys plus your over exageration. However, I can see lots of companies doing something like this from now on. I think EA will win worst company again after this.
Because your argument makes no sense. In what way does this service "doom the industry"?
People think that you're attacking the service just because its only on xbox which clearly you aren't doing that.
You get disagrees because it does not doom the industry. It gives gamers another choice for buying into old games. Now I can go to Gamestop and buy used games, buy off Ebay OR if I choose I can buy into EA Access and get older games they offer from the Vault.
Why do you assume it was Xbox users who disagreed with you and not people who were interested in this service?
Because you made a strong statement that a lot of people disagree with. Occasionally the disagree votes on this site are literal.
Just like how Netflix killed the movie industry? Oh wait, that didn't happen.
Look at the recent news about how you can only access the madden demo if you buy EA Access! Which they will most likely be doing more of their games.
Because there's been tons of demos this gen otherwise, right?
Yes, ive played plenty of demos this gen..
Good analogy Dudebro.
Plenty of demos for indy games. There's UFC, Thief, a few Lego games, & that's about it.
@Monkeycan8... EA Access isnt getting you access to a demo 5 days early...its getting you access to the game 5 days early. Any progress you make in those games carries over to your retail purchase unlike what their demos offer.
It's fine, i can live without Gamestop!
I know right $30 is such a rip off. Let's 'save the industry' by going to gamestop spend $100 to get these same games used... /s Lose the tin foil. Ea access is a good deal. If it ever stops being a good deal. You can cancel your sub.
I think EA Access will drive down the price of the used physical copies of these games.
@mkis007 It certainly will. At least for EA games. In the mean time, I've sold battlefield4 for $30, and used the money for a year of access, so I still get to play BF4, along with Madden, Fifa, and peggle2... it's a good deal.
No you wont. I'm in.
@ monkey It's because some of us disagree with your opinion you dolt ;)
This may get me to unbox the Xbox One I put into the box shortly after its release.
You don't even leave it out to watch it collect dust? My Xbox One has the top-most-center spot in my entertainment setup. PS4 is standing on top the shelving. (my GF asked why I did this, despite not using it) ..... that's because I don't feel good about putting my PS4, that'll be running frequently, in such enclosed space.
Nice just downloaded it and already sign up now letting the downloading begin
Sounds interesting... I will wait to see what others say. Don't plan on joining in on the demo that way others can work out the bugs :)
Im interested in this. gonna wait till next month to see how gamers react to this
So i get the full game for $30 dollars? Sounds good to me :p cant wait till titanfall goes in the vault :p
Wont happen. Ea doesn't own titanfall.
Yes they do.
No they don't, Respawn owns the Ip. Microsoft just bought console exclusivity for the first game.
Titanfall is Respawn's IP Respawn is an independent company and they made a partnership agreement with EA to release Titanfall EA Partners program gave birth to games like Crysis, Syndicate, Kingdom of Amalur, Bulletstorm, Brutal Legends, APB http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
I checked and you are correct, however it is probably possible considering EA will be the publisher of future titles. It seems strange to imagine EA not owning the IP they publish. Is it not allowed to have the EA partner titles or something.
Hope this goes well for Xbox One owners. :)
Yeah me too. Enjoy XBots... Unfortunately I see nothing on PS Now that will get me to pay a dime for it at this point. They need better games (say.....Dragon's Dogma) and some type of yearly sub for me. This nickel/diming for every hr could get old real fast.
I see a few titles that I could see myself using. And I even say a few with somewhat reasonable prices. $2.99 for 4hrs, $4.99 for 7, $12.99 for 30days. That's not terrible. Not ideal, nor the best value. But I don't see PS Now as being for everyone, I see it for people away from home, travelling ect. Those prices are terrible if you are using the service primarily because you'll need access to the game anywhere, on various devices. I think people that rag on the pricing, don't see it as being meant for people away from their home system. That's how I see it, you're paying a premium to access your game anywhere. That said, each game I've been tempted to try - I always consider going and buying it myself if I would want to play it.
Been waiting for this to get bf4. Downloading now :D
I just signed up!
Interesting to see this on the description 'better with EA access' http://m.imgur.com/TjL9V7N
Its cause you got dlc and such for less
It's definitely worth it so far! It's a great deal and will only get better as time goes on!
Gonna sign up today.
Xbox fanboys are in full force today it seems... @below because i'm trying to let people know they shouldn't use this service..
So why are you here then?
Yet you're pro used games and all about PSnow. ok.
I'm still not sure why you hate it. For $30/yr you get access to download/play full selected games.
you are aware this articles about xbox right? and thanks but we don't need you to let us know we shouldn't use it. were big boys, we can decide for ourselves.
Hehehehe, good one! Nice find.
What games are on offer and can someone video the app in action
Bf4, fifa 14, madden 25 and peggle 2 or whatever its called
Amazing.. u will get £31 cash in cex for fifa and bf4 in the uk. £20 for a year is cheap man.. hahahaha
what games/IPs are actually owned by EA and not just published?
Well EA owns Bioware- Mass Effect, new IP and Dragon Age Popcap- make a lot of small mobile arcade games not necessarily a bad addition to get games like PvZ, Peggle, Bejeweled for free. DICE- BF, Mirrors Edge and Battlefront Criterion- making an interesting new IP Visceral Games- Dead Space (not announced but may happen in time) and BF And loads of sport games. They will have a lot to offer in due time.
