Electronic Arts announced a new subscription service yesterday for the Xbox One that grants members access to some of EA's top games for a monthly or annual fee. In our coverage, I pondered out loud whether or not EA Access would be offered on other platforms or if it was a Microsoft exclusive.
Apparently I wasn't the only one asking that question. Game Informer reached out to Sony for comment and based on their reply, one shouldn't expect to see EA Access show up on the PlayStation 4 anytime soon.
In the statement, Sony said they evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect. The rep added that PlayStation Plus memberships are up more than 200 percent since the launch of the PS4 which indicates gamers are looking for memberships that offer a multitude of services across various devices for one low price.
If that wasn't clear enough, Sony concluded by saying they don't think asking their fans to pay an additional $5 per month for the EA-specific program represents a good value.
In the event you missed yesterday's announcement, EA's new program grants gamers access to four top titles - FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2 and Battlefield 4 - and a 10 percent discount on purchases of EA digital content for Xbox One through the Xbox Games Store. Subscribers will also get early access to select game demos. Pricing is set at $4.99 per month or $29.99 for an annual subscription.
