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.

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.

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.

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.

Not a big deal. Just buy a prepaid debit card for $5 and add $30 to it. Pretty simple and your personal credit card info won't be used. And, this is something EA is running through the Xbox and I'm sure they want to get paid directly.

I was a little upset with this also. The real reason I pulled the trigger so fast was because I have a good chunk of change on Live so I figured why not. I didn't pay attention when I was accepting, yes I know my fault, but realized it after when I got the email. I only use paypal with my gaming accounts so CC info attached with them.

Yes. There were about 5 letters that weren't correct.

It never asked me for my info but when I went to my account under the EA access it had my Origin ID already. I believe I have my origin linked with my Live account so I am not sure if that would be mandatory or not.

Hmm...well it's probably how they had your email address in the first place anyway.

The reason I ask is that this sounds like the kind of thing that would be cross platform. From the sounds of this, Sony had the option to let the service on playstation, but they turned it down.

http://www.theverge.com/2014/7/30/59...not-good-value

$30 a year for all EA games on all platforms doesn't sound too bad, as long as it doesn't take forever to roll stuff into it.

Interesting, I wonder if Sony thought this would hurt PS Now. Assuming you can play last years EA games at a higher cost through PS Now this could be why they thought it would be a bad value.


The way I see it right now is I paid $30 for Fifa, Madden and Peggle 2. If they add more games thats fine by me. I will also be more hesitant on buying EA games that I really don't want right away in hopes it will be added into this service.
