It is about a choice not about Sony looking our for customers. Please

They did not agree to this because it clashes with their streaming service.

Let the customer make a decision...Am sure if Sony got EA Access they will sell tons of accounts

Are there any EA games up on PSNow during the demo?

Sorry but there's more to this than you think. EA is in it for something. It hasn't revealed itself yet but it soon will. EA from the beginning was one of strongest voices for DRM. This different strategic plan to move more gamers to digital content and DLC smells like fish to me. There's a reason why EA is repeatedly voted as one of the worst run companies year after year. I don't trust them.
Why would EA want their games to be on PS Now streaming service in lower quality then actual download.

EA is just doing what they did for 2-3 years before then with season ticket except now you get to enjoy some older games but most are in it to get early access to future games.

Sony knows that if EA gets the PS fans with the yearly $29.99 they will be more incline to not bother with PS Now

why are you responding to me?

My post was in discussion with someone in regards to the timed trials for early release and had nothing to do with what you're talking about.

Yes, but it looks like you can't buy the $4.99 monthly sub with funds from your XBL account. They want to bill your CC directly.

That's cool if you don't want EA Access. I just think that Sony is making a mistake by making the decision for it's customers if EA Access is a good value or not. As you can see from this thread, there are people who want it on PS4 and there are people who don't. Sony, let your customers decide what they want or don't want. To me, this is just bad business

I personally have both a PS4 and XB1, so I don't favor one or the other. It would have been nice if it was available on both systems. I would have gladly paid $60 to have it on both systems. Then I could try a game like Madden on both systems and see which version I would spend my hard earned money on

its not that I don't want EA Access, its that I don't care to have it if the early release of games(sports games I'm talking about) are strictly on a timed trial/limited time access. If they allow you to play the full game without interruption, then I would be more inclined to buy if it was offered and would be upset that it wasn't offered by Sony.

I understand that people want it and that's cool, but for me personally, at this point it really doesn't bother me that its not being offered. Sony's business decision is for them to decide, not me. I may not agree, but they have their reasons and whether I agree with it or not, I do at least respect their decision.

Why? Because then they can get the PS4 clients. That's why they would put it in PSNow. Sony is not going to tell their customers go to EA to get the game. They're trying to promote PSNow. As a publisher, they can put their games up in PSNow. Again, they can rent or buy it.
