  1. I downloaded NFS rivals and after all the average reviews it got I’m really enjoying it.

  2. I’ll probably get EA Access for the Dragon Age early….well, access. Unless the PS4 version gets some exclusive goodies or something I can’t pass up.

    • The EA in EA Access stands for Early Access. The full name of the service is Early Access Access.

      • and the Ea in ‘Early’ stands for Early Access

  3. For £20 a year its real value for money what on earth were Sony thinking when they passed on it.

    I’d rather have it on the PS4 as that’s where most of my friends are.

    • There was no way Sony would say yes, EA knew this before asking. It’s a direct competitor to their PS Plus service.

      It’s a perfectly understandable decision.

      • I think it would of been a nice addition to the service I still pay for xbox live and they now provide games for gold,
        which is a similar situation.

    • It might not feel that way but im pretty sure sony did us a favor by declining. Accepting thing, like Microsoft has opens the door to other devs to start their own service. Imagine having to also pay 3 plans, maybe even four. Sony needs their rental service to be a success and maybe they’ll start a double ++ service. Personally I’d rather have a system that is handled by the platform owner (like games with gold and plus)), not the devs.

      • Wow, autocorrect and the early hour made a messy post. Whoops!

      • Yeah, as good as it seems now. It’ll be a different tune when Ubisoft, 2K, Activision, Sony and Microsoft all have their own subscriptions. That’ll get real expensive.

  4. So far I have traded in my FIFA 14, Battlefield 4 and NFS Rivals, all of which were in my Xbox One bundle. I got £80 back and still have the games thanks to Access.

    I know EA are the enemy, but thus far Access is very good value for money.

  5. Great service. i traded in my fifa 14 and got 26 quid from cex for it and done the monthly for the ea access so 8 quid until the new fifa comes out seems logical plus you get the other games

  6. If Sony are so sure we don’t want this EA Access service then they need to seriously step up their game when it comes to PS+. I’d much rather pay £20 a year and have access to a bunch of meaty, full releases than £40 a year for what have so far been mostly throw-away indie titles. There are a few gems in there sure, but EA Access definitely offers much better value currently.
