Just got the code on my Xbox, also.


Thinking about it now, I do plan on picking up Madden 15 in a month, and I'd do that digitally. Paying $5 in order to get $6 off and a few other benefits isn't a terrible idea, so I might do it (and I'm glad to see I was wrong about games being removed over time). I just don't really think it's quite as big a deal as all the gaming sites are making it out to be.

Got my message with my access code. Funny because the code that's in the message wasn't the code that shows up to redeem and it would fail. So I had to copy the code from the message and enter it manually.

This sounds like great news. Perfect for me with games like BF4. I really enjoy the BF games but no longer purchase them due to the short campaign mode and I'm not an online multiplayer for the most part. I'd love to be able to play FIFA from time to time as well but again, not a purchase for me.

I'm curious to see what all ends up in the Vault. Certainly can't argue with the pricing.

Has anyone seen any rumors that this service was coming? I was really taken by surprise when I read about it today.

Was really new to me. I'm with you though. If they can add decent games to the vault it's worth the money.

Yeah, but how good does the deal sound at $60/year ?

How is it paid for? $60/year in a lump sum or $5/month?

Huh. $30/year does seem awfully good. I think that I'll subscribe for the hell of it, though I don't play any of the EA Sports games.

For that price I signed up for the year. If it doesn't work out then I am done.

It does bring up an interesting idea. What if other publishers had yearly/monthly fees to play all of their games. Even if it was an older game that could come in handy, sort of like getting games cheap through the used market. Except they make the money again. Depending on the amount they could even include new games as well. Who knows the possibilities are there and we just need someone to start the trend, this could be it.

Yeah--I went for the 1 year sub. I'm installing BF4, which I did not buy, not being the world's biggest MP shooter fan, but I'll check out the SP campaign.

Note the last digit of the code in the message before hitting "Redeem". Use the left bumper to move the cursor to the front of the code and delete the leading space. Use the right bumper to move back to the end of the code and type in the last digit as noted from the message. A bug in the "redeem code in message" function.

I just signed up too. For only $30 a year it seems to be a very good deal.

What was the deal with the code. It put a space at the beginning of the code. I needed to delete the space, add a hyphen, and then add the last character to the code..

EDIT: AS usual I'm a little slow.

My code wasn't the same as in the message. So I had to copy/paste the code from the email into the text area manually.

Your's was completely different? Mine was the same, except that there was a leading space and the final digit was missing. I've seen this happen in the past.

Well this kinda kills ea access for me.

Thanks for your recent contact with Xbox Support. Following our conversation, you may receive an email survey in a few days asking you for feedback regarding your Xbox support experience. We'd appreciate it if you could find a few minutes to share your thoughts. Your feedback will help us improve the Xbox customer support experience. Thank you.

As per our call today, we were able to confirm that you wont be able to use your currency cards to purchase the EA Access and confirmed your issue is now resolved.

Thanks again for calling Xbox Support.

Kinda tired of throwing credit card info all over the place. Bought a whole bunch of ms cards so I wouldn't have to always use cc and then this

I came home today and had a notification that I was selected for the EA Access. I went with the code and checked it out. With the the games on the vault I didn't have 2 of them (BF4, Fifa14). Knowing they are going to add others I pulled the trigger for the Annual subscription since it was only $29. Currently have Fifa14 and BF4 downloading so my son can check out BF4. I'll be curious to see how it works with my son and I each having Xbox live.

Same here. Same code, just had to retype it since it was off one digit.

It works the same as anything else on Live. So it doesn't matter if others have a gold account it will work for anyone on that Xbox with the subscription.

It doesn't even have to be retyped; just delete the leading space and enter the missing digit.

I wasn't smart enough to figure that out at the time Took a picture of the code and retyped it. Work didn't end as well as I would have liked for my Friday so I'm on non-think mode since I walked through my home door.
