EA Access Now Available For Xbox One! Pay Just $4.99/ Month For Free Games, Discounts Etc.
Got an Xbox One or planning to get one? Then subscribe to Ea Access for just $4.99 to save on the purchases of games, play games for free and much more!
First of all, this is only valid for Xbox One. Second of all, if you have or are planning to get an Xbox One, then $4.99 is hardly a bank-breaking fee especially since you will end up saving so much more money in long term. An average game usually runs upwards of $70 but with EA Access, you gain access to select games per month with the vault, but there are other benefits as well.
In fact, here are the three main advantages to getting to subscribing to EA Access:
Once subscribed, you will gain access to the vault, which will allow you to play games for free and unlike PS Plus' rather mediocre line-up of games, which are mostly indie ones, EA Access is setting the bar much higher by promising only the best games like Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, Battlefield 4 and Peggle 2 and many others to be added later on as well.
Play For Less
EA Access members can also save 10% on all digital purchases of games. Sadly, this doesn't apply to physical copies of games but with the way in which everything is transferring to cloud technology, I doubt many of you will mind, especially if you save money. Plus, most games tend to be cheaper digitally, so you might even be looking at save even more than just 10% in comparison to the retail price of physical copies.
With this benefit, you are given the advantage of downloading and playing games five days before they are released! This is definitely a major perk, especially for full-time gamers, but I'm sure any gamer would appreciate the extra time to learn the ropes of a new game and take a shot at setting high scores. Plus, it would give a major competitive edge over friends who would be playing the game on a PlayStation 4! ;) The only drawback is that you are only provided a limited amount of time in order to try the game, but it's still a neat feature to have nonetheless, especially if you have been eagerly awaiting the release of a specific game (i.e. NHL 15).
