A Sony rep. tells Game Informer that the company does not think EA Access offers a real value to PlayStation 4 owners. Electronic Arts announced the program yesterday, and revealed that it would be exclusive to Xbox One. Sony seems to be fine with that.
"We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect," they said.
"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."
EA Access gives customers early access to games and access to "The Vault," a collection of games that can be downloaded and played at any time. Customers can pay a monthly fee of $4.99 or an annual fee of $29.99 a year for access to The Vault and other to-be announced benefits of the service. EA announced yesterday that the special program would begin rolling out in a limited closed beta.
