EA Survey Suggests It Might be Looking at a Netflix-Style Subscription Service for PC

Ever since Netflix came along and introduced video-on-demand for a competitive price, a good service (for the most part) and a huge library of titles to choose from, gamers across the globe have imaged the concept being applied to video game.

We've already seen it in some forms; OnLive, the now defunct game streaming service promised to offer a wealth of games for one monthly price while Sony is currently testing its own version with PS Now.

It looks like EA has seen the potential and may want a slice of that pie, at least according to a new survey published on behalf of the mega-publisher.

Don't they already have that on Xbox one with EA access vault? So they would just bring that to pc.

if it's anything like "OnLive" forget about it.

cancel service first day ..................... any gaming service without physical disc no good .

freshslicepizza1179d ago

it doesn't have to be physical, it could be digital games you download not stream. ea access on the pc much like how it works on the xbox one makes sense to me.

Might want to warn Valve about that. They seem to be wasting a lot of effort on their "Steam" platform, obviously unaware of the importance of discs.

Yes this is similar to PSNow. EA and Comcast made a similar announcement a while ago.

And here we go again. The sad part is that people proved to EA, that they're foolish enough to pay for it.

...ask XONE owners what they like about EA's program.

Foolish? You pay $30yr and add a dozen or so games to your games library, with more coming.

Why does EA constantly try to re-invent the wheel?

Why? Because they are not true game enthusiasts. They have spent the better part of the last decade, obsessed with trying to mine peoples bank accounts. No thanks. I haven't bought a game from EA in 5 years, and I don't feel like I missed anything.

Don't come at me like a digital drug dealer. I try to do business with ethical companies.
