EA Access and Origin Access:

yep, said it wasn't good value for money, then ironically later they released PlayStation now, which is not good value for money!

Just crazy.
HTC just set something up for viveport today, in reality (get it) it's grim compared to EA access. Unreal value for money.
Time to sell my PS4 copy.

Yes I'm waiting for that then going to sign up, i did own FIFA 17 which i got free with the xbone but sold it on eBay for £25 wish I'd of just used it as 4 months later buyer gets a refund saying unauthorised use of card so yeah I'm looking forward to FIFA and BF1.

Same thing happened to me. I complained to ebay and got half the cash back. Lesson learned - don't sell download codes on ebay.

That's well ****
Great to get FIFA but bit bummed with the other two... as I own one... was expecting more.... was expecting army of two to be added (I own that too but still expected it)

It shows how good the service is that I have such high expectations - like others I have said I'll sell my ps4 copy...

And Gary Neville is in the Xbox one version...

Might even tempt me to play Ultimate team thing....

Footballing God.... apparently he hates scousers..
Don't you have to keep your EA access subscription running to play anything you've downloaded through it?

Of course. they arent going to give people £100s of games for nothing, people would just get one month a and have all those games, not the greatest way to run business or make money!


Mind boggles that how many people think they get to keep all the games after one month.

Gutted, I wanted KNACK to be included


I have a free month laying about. Fancied trying Fifa 17. Been holding off but no one is selling it cheaply.
I mostly sell codes via post and recorded delivery now. If I do get a digital buyer, I ask for gamertag and home phone number to confirm it's a genuine purchase.

It's even funnier when you see they try to charge 12 quid per month for PS Now

So have a think -

Do you think that someone could have one month's worth for a couple of quid, download literally hundreds of pounds worth of games, then keep them all?

Let us know how you get on after having a think about that.

Common sense would tell you, that you need to keep paying! You can't honestly of thought that any company would be stupid enough too do something like that,would you do something similar?

And as an Xbox owner, i get a tad jealous of the last of us, bloodbourne, horizon zero and that fancy VR headset. Only got the Xbox because of backwards compatibility (of games I'll probably never play again) and the UHD blu ray player (when I'm still on a 6 year old budget Sony set)

Ea access is pretty decent when on offer, a lot of tat included but there are a couple of gems.

If this rumoured ps pro slim gets a uhd drive, might be time to upgrade.
Still got the unused digital code that came with my Xbox a couple of months ago if anyone's interested in playing a couple weeks early

​i'll take that code if it's still going - thanks
Thanks for this heads up. I think EA Access is great this time of year for the free sports games. Madden in February, NHL in March, Fifa in April and then NBA Live in May.

I stopped buying Fifa at all in September due to being able to wait until this moment.

Well this seems like terrible news now, or the worst of the bunch, given that Dragon: Age Origins and Medal of Honor: Airborne were also announced at the same time.

Voted cold (_;)

I was just messing. It's within 8 weeks, though
Nice! Although I did just buy it on PC, it's nice to have it on the XBOX.

You're right, I love the exclusive on the PS4 and would pick up an Xbone too if I thought I'd get a chance to play it but can only find the time for one console these days, as my Wii U found out X)

No, FIFA will be added 21st April, the others will be added after that before the end of June. Actual dates have yet to be announced yet.
I'm Hoping this means FIFA 17 will go on sale again on PC to something like the recent sale, of £17.
Get this and the next gen Xbox by the end of the year and 2017/18 should be good for gamers

Exactly, Sony fans like being ripped off and value such as EA/Origin access just wouldn't be compatible.

Yey for Fifa 17 being available before the end of the football season. Will be playing that quite a bit on PC then!
