If you’re a Playstation owner hoping to see EA’s new subscription service arrive on the platform then you’re going to be disappointed as Sony is claiming that EA Access doesn’t deliver the value Playstation customers have come to expect.
Sony officially passed on the service a company spokesperson told Game Informer: “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.”
The service is currently in beta but will open up to the public later this year. In the UK, EA Access will cost £3.99 a month, so far four games are confirmed to be available on the service including Battlefield 4, Madden 14, Fifa 14 and Peggle 2.

KitGuru Says: I actually quite like the idea of EA access. EA has a huge catalog of games that it could include in the subscription. Unfortunately, the service is only available on the Xbox One, which limits its customer base and could slow down plans to increase the amount of games available. What did you guys think of EA access?
