Sony says EA Access doesn't offer good value for gamers

EA Access wasn't a good value for gamers according to Sony, which is why it didn't come to the PS4 (NYSE:SNE, NASDAQ:EA)

Earlier this week EA unveiled a new subscription service for Xbox One gamers called EA Access. The subscription service gave the gamers access to a number of online games among other things. If you own a PS4, you may be wondering why EA Access didn't come to the PS4 as well.

Sony has now issued a statement that says EA Access doesn't represent a good value to the PlayStation gamer. There is always the chance Sony will change its mind later, but it seems the chance was there for the PS4 and Sony passed in favor of pushing PlayStation Plus.

 

"We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect," a Sony representative told us via email. "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."
