That's a pretty big get for Gamepass.

Having FIFA, Madden and NHL for "free" at some point in the year can be really big.

I have EA Play and it is not just the sports games. It also includes the regular EA games like PvZ, battlefield, NFS, star wars, titanfalls, and all bioware games.

I haven't bought a EA game in years now, but have played them all.

AngelicIceDiamond42d ago

Great deal but there's no way in hell I'm playing Madden or any sports game. EA will have field day with microtransactions.

GPU is really turning into a real bang for the buck. I received an email from MS for being in the xcloud test program with this little bit of info: "Thanks to you, starting September 15 Project xCloud is graduating to Beta and will now be available for millions of players around the world, included as a part of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription at no additional charge."

Ok that's a massive deal. I'll give them that.

And PC GamePass is still at it's introductory $5/month, and it includes EA as well... great value right now.

RazzerRedux42d ago

Game Pass for PC just got a whole lot better. Exciting news.

Darn, they just decided to stop the introductory price on PC. At $10/month it's not worth it imo

I'll read, but when does it drop on gamepass?

CYALTR42d ago

It says "Holiday 2020" which I would read as November 10th, when the new consoles drop

Fantangoooo42d ago

LEETTSSSS GOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!

$4.99/month as of right now, unless PS offers some kind of deal. Doesn't seem likely right at this point, but probably will be something they will do down the road

rainslacker41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

So, maybe my math is wrong here, but isn't it still cheaper to get PSNow at the yearly rate, PS+ at the yearly rate, and pay the $4.99 a month for EA Play? Or at least an equivalent price? If you pay everything by the year, it seems that the PS combination comes in a bit cheaper by about $5-6.

Disregarding special promotional costs that may exist.

Edit: Forgot they raised the price of PS+, so it'd be about $5 more paying yearly for the various services. I don't care to figure the math for the monthly costs of these things because I don't think it's that important. My curiosity just got the better of me above.

Edit 2: So decided to do the math more, and seems that if you pay monthly, GPU is a better deal. If you pay yearly, and want all three, then you save about $30 on PS based on the yearly costs of the services.

Maybe I'm missing something though. Anyone feel free to correct me.

rainslacker40d ago

Lots of disagrees, but no one is saying why my math is wrong.

Actually insane. Might push me over to get the pass for my computer.

phoenixwing42d ago

I'd recommend it for outer worlds alone

TheRealTedCruz42d ago (Edited 42d ago )

I went in early for PC. EA gets deserved flack, but that just added a lot of value to the service. Let's be real, they are A-holes, but they do have quality games to be had.

Getting their service tied into one I already had was pretty cool to hear.
