EA announced a rather interesting service for Xbox One users recently with EA Access. For $5 per month, you’ll have unlimited access to games like Battlefield and FIFA will also getting a chance to play some games prior to their release. Sony had some rather interesting thoughts on why it refused to bring EA Access to PlayStation because it didn’t provide the kind of value consumers had come to expect.

Speaking to Game Informer, a Sony representative said that, “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 percent 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.”

    Shouldn’t that be for gamers to decide if its a good value? Currently I dont think it is because of the games on offer. I dont play sports games and I own the rest but the game selection will grow and $5 a month isn’t a bad price at all. Its cheaper than renting from PS now. So for $5 I could rent the game from Sony for a couple hours or I could give EA that $5 and have access to whatever library they put up for the entire month and its not streaming video so there won’t be any latency.

    They didn’t want it to get in the way of their crappy ‘PS-NOW’ …PS-NOW cost way more and you get way less …. so this is a bunch of crap .

    As far as the newly announced EA Access, Sony said it did not accept the EA Access program because it felt it did not bring “good value”. That is bull! The PS Now is a freaking joke!!! With EA Access you pay 5 dollars a month and you have access to a bunch of games for unlimited time during that month. On the other hand with the PS Now you pay 5 dollars and you can only play ONE GAME for 4 HOURS!!!! What a freaking joke!!!!

    But Sony fanboys enjoyed this announcement:
