  • I still couldn't launch EA Access FIFA 16 after the last update, I had to use the disc again. Hopefully this update will fix it...
  • Do I need to be invited? If so my nickname is AcookookX1. I'd be thankful for the invite.
  • Yes, you do need an invite. I just got in, but folks said I wouldn't. So, I invited everyone on my friends list and some from here as well, lol. I'll hook you up. You have to accept me as friend so I can invite you. Look for it.

  • So I don't know when this came out or if its new to this release but we can now stream TV to xbox app. I did it by accident but I know before it used to say this app could not be streamed.
