EA Access is finally making its way to the PlayStation 4

Yay, another monthly subscription.

EA Access, which has been available on Xbox for five years now, is finally coming to the PlayStation 4.

With EA Access, gamers get access to a large variety of EA games that can be downloaded and played for only $4.99 a month (or $29.99 a year). The service is currently available on both Xbox One and PC, but it is not yet clear what games will be offered through the service on PS4.

In addition to a bunch of games, EA Access also gives users perks that include discounts when purchasing games, as well as early access to select titles.

It’s not clear what made Sony change their stance on the service

When EA Access was first launched on Xbox One, Sony looked at the service as competition to its PlayStation Plus membership and didn’t believe the value was worth it to gamers, stating, “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 Verge rightly notes that game selection could be smaller on PS4, stating “The list for the Xbox One includes numerous older games from the Xbox 360 and original Xbox that are only playable on Microsoft’s console due to the extensive backward compatibility support on the Xbox One, so it seems likely that Sony players will have a more limited list of games to choose from.”

Regardless, options are nice and subscription services continue to find their way into every part of our lives, so this isn’t too terribly surprising.
