Console games are expensive, to expensive for many people to try and play as many games as they would like to. EA seem to have understood this and launches a new service for Xbox One for just those people.
A Netflix like service called ‘EA Access’ where you pay $4,99 for one month or €29,99 if you want a whole year, and in return can play as many games as you like.
So far there is a limited selection of titles, only counting Madden 25, Fifa 14, Battlefield 4 and Peggle 2. It isn’t much, but it is a start, and we can expect to see a lot more added in the future. The service is also said to allow you to play new games before they launch to the general public, including Madden, NFL, FIFA and Dragon Age: Inquisition.
When a game normally cost $70 and they release one a year like with the sport titles, you can see why this quickly could become popular among console gamers.
EA Access will be sold in retail stores as well as on Xbox Live. The service has launched as a beta today for a small part of Xbox One owners. No timeline has been given for the public roll out of the service. On the bright side, it will give them time to add more games to the service.
