Battlefront 1 and 2 gave me so many hours of fun. I still remember reading my game informer mag with the cover reveal to the original game, i was so hype for it back when. Super stoked its making a return.

Wait how early do these ea access things usual let you well........access the game.

HammadTheBeast2301d ago

Usually around 4-6 hours of the game unlocked I think 1-2 weeks earlier.

i still don’t know why sony did not accept EA Access

OUROSMAG2302d ago

Cause they want to keep everything in house, I think it was a dumb move on their part.

Not really if every publisher started this crap your looking at 10-15 quid a month plus the price of xbl/ps plus...

MasterCornholio2302d ago

I guess they were afraid that other publishers might demand the same thing.

But other than that I really can't think of a reason for rejecting it.

It's not like it's a big deal or anything.

And since its entirely optional for the consumer, what does it matter if Activision or Ubisoft pulled something similar? No one is forcing anyone to use it.

Microsoft dropping a ton of cash to prevent other gamers from playing a multiplatform game???

Sounds familiar #tombraider

It is different sponsoring a project (bayonetta 2...maybe street fighter 5) and cockblocking people.

OUROSMAG2302d ago

This isn't preventing anyone from playing anything, PS4 could of easily had the same feature, but sony chose to opt out of it.

Maybe if you had known why EA access is on xb1 then just maybe you would complain to sony for deciding it wasn't good value for its customers yet all you hear is comments like yours blaming ms for at least giving their customers an option

Now say that again, only with logic and facts, and proper comparison this time.

NeoGamer2322301d ago (Edited 2301d ago )

That is so stupid. When EA started EA Access:

1) They offered to do it on Sony PS platform but Sony declined.
2) The said it would offer early access to games, discounts, and free games.

EA's EA Access FAQ here:

Sony declining EA Access here:

All EA is doing is fulfilling the promises of their subscription. This has nothing to do with MS money hatting.

Maybe you should go talk to Sony about why gamers on PS can't have this service.
