EA: Other Publishers Want to Include Their Games in EA Access and Origin Access

Electronic Arts has gone on record several times on the fact that EA Access on Xbox One and the recently introduced Origin Access on PC are quite successful subscription services, and apparently other publishers have taken notice, and would like a slice of the cake, as mentioned by CEO Andrew Wilson during the Q&A Session of the latest investor day.

good. why not have more titles avialable and allow gamers to choose whether to support it or not?

_-EDMIX-_1275d ago

Agreed. Other publishers could be getting a pretty good cut.

ScorpiusX1275d ago

Very nice , i say bring it

battleFROnt1275d ago

that's interesting ..
a stunt like this would make the service even more successful

CerebralAssassin1275d ago

And expensive... Although I feel it's a steal right now, I'm sad they will inevitably raise the price. Hope I'm wrong though.

Whoa...if that is the case, Sony is really missing out along with a disservice to their huge loyal fanbase of blocking EA access.

Imagine Activision putting some to their AAA games on it and allowing Destiny 2 and COD - 5 day early access to XB1 gamers?

Not to mention the added bonus of having more X360 BC titles on the service as well.

This will be awesome if it came to fruition, for PC and Xbox gamers ayways.

Alternatively Sony was correct to say no. As the pricing is similar to the likes of PlayStation plus and xblg if they really want in on a subscription service they will simply put it on ps plus for a month. Sony's whole reasoning for refusing to allow the early service wqs they didnt want another service like the one they had that is required for online play because you know what would happen. They'd trial their games on EA access see how popular they are then start their own subscription or have it that their content is an additional charge to EA's. Next thing you know you pay fiver a month for ps plus/xbl and need to do the same for each publisher if you dobt want to be left out in the dark.

Lol no. Anyone with a functioning frontal lobe knows it was because they didn't want a conpetitor for ps now.

extermin8or1275d ago (Edited 1275d ago )

It wouldn't be competitiont for ps now because ps now is required for online play and could saves etc. EA weren't trying to compete against that. No Sony want the games on ps now instead of users having to pay extra subscriptions to get them. Freedom of choice is usually great in this instance where it would lead to every publisher doing it and like a thirty pounds a month subscription just tog etc all content ontop of cost of games and season passes etc it'd be ridiculous. Allowing it allows that scenario to occur. How many EA games have appeared on xbl gold monthly games since EA access launched I wonder?

@extermin8or

PS Now isn't required for online play, Playstation Plus is.

PS Now is the streaming service....

The service just keeps getting better. Would be cool to see other publishers add their games to the vault.

_-EDMIX-_1275d ago

"Imagine Activision putting some to their AAA games on it and allowing Destiny 2 and COD - 5 day early access to XB1 gamers? " Not likely. I think they mean other publishers, ie not the top Ubisoft or Activision. I would see other publishers that can't afford such a set up, but NOT a direct rival. They would likely make their own before doing that

Making EA Access seem like it's better then it really is and a must have is not working.

Foehammer1274d ago

Let's see what the CEO says in the article:

"Electronic Arts has gone on record several times on the fact that EA Access on Xbox One and the recently introduced Origin Access on PC are quite successful subscription services, and apparently other publishers have taken notice, and would like a slice of the cake, as mentioned by CEO Andrew Wilson during the Q&A Session of the latest investor day."

So:

1. Successful subscription service

2. Other publishers looking to have their games added

I'd call that working very well, contributing to EA being one of the biggest publishers.

Yes and no, steam was revolutionary, origin then felt derivative, uplay was painful and seemed extremely unnecessary. I would hate to see every major publisher doing that to gaming in general.

freshslicepizza1275d ago

why? ea access doesn't have its own service running outside of xbox live on the xbox one. they may run on ea servers but the games still run with the console and all your online features are still there. you also seem to forget these are for older titles, so what's the big deal?

ThePresentIsAgift1275d ago

I suppose I was talking from the pc gaming perspective which may admittedly have been inaccurate, definitely so in fact, I game on Xbox One but not for a couple of months and had in fact forgotten how seamless integration of access was.

freshslicepizza1275d ago

if ea had their sports games on the pc i would sign up but there is no nhl, no pga and no madden. i do agree on the pc it can be worse than a console because of the different services.
