    It's never too late to try, at least, according to Electronic Arts, as they revealed that their monthly game subscription service EA Access would finally be heading to the PlayStation 4. EA Access has been available on the Xbox One ever since 2014, offering players a varied selection of their titles for $4.99/mo. When it first launched, EA attempted to put the service on the PS4, but was denied by Sony, who claimed that "[it] wasn't a good value for PlayStation fans". In the five years since then, it appears things have changed, as starting in July, you'll be able to experience select EA games such as Burnout Paradise Remastered, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Titanfall 2, and all of their sports franchises for $4.99 a month, or $29.99 a year.

    I can never tell if anti-fanboys are intentionally trying to look so retarded, or just genuinely this stupid.

    Subscription services like this are becoming increasingly popular. How could it even be a scam? Dumbass.
    It's a pretty insane value. EA has published or released a pretty massive catalog of games, and this is a very good way to try them all. You can hate EA all day but that doesn't change the value in the slightest. Their more premium subscription lets you play their brand new games which is ridiculous value. How you could even try to turn this into a negative is truly baffling.

    Ironically it's the cheapest way (legally) to try all of these games without actively supporting EA much.

    The only ea game I owned was NBA Street for my nintendo gamecube I got as a gift. I also remember playing Road Rash on the Megadrive at a friend's house. I would say the only EA game I ever bought was NBA Jam for ps3, but that's not really original since it was based on the Arcade game by midway.

    None of their recent products had made me consider caring about their stuff. I hope they consider the ea sports ports, nba street, ssx tricky HD would be cool. :)

    Just consider this a rental plan. Like the blockbusters of old were.

    You pay 30 bucks a year to rent as many EA games as you'd like for as long as you'd like for that year. Well...as many games as they offer, anyway. If it's games you want to play just a few times then forget about them, and don't care about owning any of them, then it sounds like a brilliant deal.

    Sure, buy why would I want to play an EA game in the post 80's/90's world? Especially a Star Wars title starting a character that looks like he came from the cast of Dawson's Creek.

    Last EA game I bought was the first Dragon Age game. Then they raped the IP, and buried it. Sadly now, they plan to dig up its corpse again, just to be worked on again, by the walking corpse of a company known as Bioware.

    I bet the games would still require ps+ to play online.

    Not interested but also I don't see what's wrong with having choices, at the end of the day it's their money.
