Sony Evaluated EA Access and Deemed It to Be a Poor Value


I mentioned yesterday that EA had rolled out a new subscription gaming service that was available for Xbox One gamers only called EA Access. I wondered at the time why it wasn’t going to land for the PS4 console as well. Sony has now shed a bit of light on the situation.

Sony says that EA Access didn’t offer the value PS4 gamers expect. It then goes on to brag about its PlayStation Plus memberships. I suspect the deal was that Sony offered EA Access would put a crimp in PS Plus subscriptions and canned the idea before it started.

“We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect,” a Sony representative told GameInformer via email. “PlayStation Plus memberships are up more than 200% 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.”
