EA Access subscription service launches out of beta Electronic Arts has taken their EA Access gaming subscription service out of beta and officially launched the product for the Xbox One.
To start, the service is available in Australia, Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, UK, and the US.

The new service will cost $5 per month or $30 per year and give access to downloadable games through "The Vault," a small but growing collection of EA games. At launch, EA Access will have just four games: FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2, and Battlefield 4, with the promise of more being added in the near future.

In addition to the cheap gaming on older games, EA Access members also get 10 percent off EA games and other content including DLC and free trials of new EA games up to five days before their retail dates.

You can buy passes to EA Access on Amazon and at GameStop.

The "Meh." heard 'round the world.

I quite literally would never buy another EA game, without them paying me.

Well, it's getting close. They are starting to give some away for free.

Free won't be enough. They will actually have to PAY me, to corrupt my computer with their dreck.

A lot of gamers play for the achievements.

The subscription idea will change nothing for achievement hunters.

EA will continue to take down the servers six months after launch date.
EA will continue to put in unobtainable server-based achievements.

It is beyond comprehension that people still purchase their games.
