Electronic Arts’ conference call for investors and analysts wrapped up a few minutes ago, and the publisher’s CEO Andrew Wilson expressed excitement about the future across all platforms, also givingan update on the situation of EA access.
EA access..most bang for your buck!! I use it all the time when new games are coming from EA to see if its something I want. There is nothing worse than buying a game..hyped or not and then it sucks. The other high note is the free games they give. They have been pretty good so far.
"There is nothing worse than buying a game..hyped or not and then it sucks." Very true. I wish there'd be more game trials. If devs/pubs won't do it before release, then at least do it after. *sigh*
I did the $5 month to test Dragon Age. Then I bought it and got $6 off. If they show enough promising stuff this year, I will get the year sub this time
Isn't that what demos are for?
Demos don't give you 6hrs of full access and allow you to gain achievements of you don't buy the game and continue your game if you do buy it. I played 6 online games of madden for free this year and decided there wasn't enough change for me to buy it, but I did start dragon age on there, and then bought it for my older kid for Christmas and got to continue playing it. I also had previously bought BF4, PVZ and need for speed rivals and traded all three in when the service started for $55 which paid for 2 years of subscription. The service is fantastic for $2.50 a month on a yearly plan.
Hell ya.. Traded in bf4 and it almost covered the full year.. Its an insane value IMO.. Almost a must have for Xbox one owners
EA Access is worth it for Plants & Zombies & BF4 alone...everything else is bonus.
When EA access was first introduced, I must admit I was a bit skeptical for its value but it's really grown on me now. They keep adding games into it and I'll keep my subscription for it.
Lol sony thinks it's injustice to bring this to ps4? Lol
Can't allow anything to compete with PSNow now can they?
I think the best way to start with the Xbox One is to get EA Access. Not only will ypu get to try great games, you can buy them at a discounted price also. But the fact that you get all those free games in the Vault is good enough to last you a couple of weeks without having to worry about buying games and that is pretty awesome for $30 a year.
EA Access is a fantastic service it will get even better in about 2 years when the library is much more deeper but right now it is an incredible value. Note to EA bring in all of your last generation titles to EA Access and this will be a hit with the masses just picture being able to play Dead Space, the old Battle Field, Mass Effect Titles, Dragon Age and so much more on the EA Access hub.
My only gripe with EA Access is that I'd like to see them update the vault before E3, but other than that this is a fantastic service. The fact that BF Hardline probably has a 8 to 10 hour campaign and I literally get to play huge chunk of it for nothing is incredible.
Great that it is successful for EA but for me it is not worth it. I buy all my games at retail so I can't avail of the discount just to make it the same as retail prices. I have spent hundreds of Euro on plus and have access to hundreds of PS3,Vita and PS4 games compared to the 6 or so access has and they already gave one of those games free to every PS4 owner. It might be a few years before the value begins to show for me.
