EA Access, the recently announced game subscription service from Electronic Arts that's currently an Xbox One exclusive, is an even better deal than we thought. EA's chief operating officer Peter Moore confirmed in an interview with Computer and Video Games that once a game is included in the subscription service "it stays there, it's not going to be taken out, that's a commitment we've made."
As we have previously reported, EA Access on Xbox One will allow users to play a number of games for as much as they want for $4.99 a month or $29.99 a year. The service, which is still in beta, currently has four games (FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2 and Battlefield 4) in its "Vault" but Moore confirmed this week that additional games will be added. He stated, "The Vault will get its share of triple-A titles. We haven't made any announcements to that extent about exactly when, where and how, but the Vault will be substantial."
That sounds terrific for Xbox One gamers and it may be worth spending a little extra money for this kind of access. It also make's Sony's slam of the service as not providing enough value for its own PlayStation customers sound more than a little hollow.
If you are an Xbox One owners, will you be signing up for EA Access once it comes out of beta?
