Very excited, I hope Sony and publishers understand how to price the games better and what subscriptions to offer after this open beta

tbone5671957d ago

Does the update have EA Access like Xbox One.

sonarus1957d ago

ok. 2 dollars a day rental to price competitively with redbox would make 100x more sense

DeadRabbits1957d ago

EPIC!!!! EA Access Slayer!

thrust1957d ago

@deadrabbits EA access not on ps4 :/

Ares84HU1957d ago

If it's something like netflix, a monthly subscription of $10-$15 than I'd say, why not. But if you have to pay/game than they can stick it where the sun don't shine.

sonarus1957d ago

Eventually i believe a subscription model will develop for certain games kind of like ONLIVE.

You realize it could have EASILY been on PS4..its not like EA picked Microsoft over Sony.

Here is the proof: Sony DENIED EA

Sony's Comments on EA: "We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect. PlayStation Plus memberships are up more than 200% since the launch of PlayStation 4, which shows that gamers are looking for memberships that offer a multitude of services, across various devices, for one low price. We don’t think asking our fans to pay an additional $5 a month for this EA-specific program represents good value to the PlayStation gamer."

Full Article Explaining why Sony said no To EA access ON PS4:

@below...Damage control when EA and sony both confirmed it? read the article before you look like a moron.

thrust1957d ago

Angels good damage control that, haha

reko1957d ago

Thrust and tbone ea sucks.

JoGam1957d ago

@ Angels, The other reason Sony didn't mention was that it is a conflict of interest. With Playstation Now coming why would Sony allow EA Access?

morganfell1957d ago (Edited 1957d ago )

@Angels, you realize tbopne's onl;y purpose is to troll. He isn't interested in minor issues such as facts or the truth. He only wants something that satisfies his ego and beleif that he is backing the right console. He is trying to ignore the fact that MS has told him one lie after another.

"It will not work without Kinect"

"We have no intention of selling the Xbox without Kinect"

You can add a hundred more. Yet he still believes whatever he is told. What does that say about such people?

Considering the size of the library we are looking at with PS Now, it really isn't much of a comparison, let alone a contest. EA versus the rest of the industry. Didn't people learn anything from BF4?

choujij1957d ago

@tbone567 Don't you worry about PS Now, because surely EA Access will save the Xbone! :P

OT: Can't wait to take this for a spin. 100 games is a great starting point. I hope the lag isn't bad with everyone jumping on board at once to test.

Mr_Writer851957d ago (Edited 1956d ago )


Thrust can't read and makes stuff up.

He tried telling me COD Ghost was confirmed 1080p 60fps on X1.

CuddlyREDRUM1956d ago

You will still be paying fifteen dollars for a rental of a game that costs ten dollars used, at times.

EData1956d ago

Is EA Access MS's answer to PSNow? That would be lame of them, they should just make a streaming service for Xbox. I don't think Sony wanted EA Access...

It already has over 80 games in it so i'll be checking out what new games get added. MGS4 is in there for $14.99 for 90 days, it's not a bad price if you only have a PS4.

XxExacutionerxX1956d ago

Oh my god $1.99 for 4 hours of gameplay, sony you are a genius. Playstation..Now is a failure. Beta or Not

AllAboutGaming1957d ago

It will be interested to see how much lag there is. I hope they beefed up their servers because there is going to be a ton of streaming starting tomorrow.

kneon1957d ago

I was using it a few weeks ago and played it non stop for a few hours several times over a week, there wasn't a single instance of lag.

I was quite surprised. My internet is quite fast and typically has very low latency, still I was expecting at least the occasional hiccup but it never arrived.

logan_izer101957d ago

hmm, I have fantastic internet and I'm wired, yet I get horrific latency to the point where it's unplayable. Perhaps their servers are just not location friendly for me

kneon1956d ago

I expect the servers are still in limited deployment, so it's not going to work well for everyone. But then no matter what there will always be people for which it just won't work well.

SoapShoes1957d ago

^ Same here. For me, personally, I get no noticeable lag. It's pretty cool, they just need to adjust the pricing model.

nunley331956d ago

you'll be pleasantly surprised at how fast these PSNow servers are.I never encounter any lag either but my PS3 has froze while playing at times, that should be expected . I'm not just talking how the game plays but everything like pulling your xmb in-game to synch or check trophies, sending messages, It's way faster than normal. Sending messages and bringing up the xmb is done without any loading, messages are sent instantly.
