- Same above applies to BF4. Traded it in for credit, but still playing it because it's in the vault
- I downloaded Fifa 14 and am playing it at will. I'm not a soccer fan by any means, but I enjoyed the demo enough to consider buying it. I'm enjoying the game
- Peggle 2 has been downloaded and I've yet to play it.

That's alot of value right there IMO. Throwing in the 5 day early trial for Madden 15 is nice too, but for me I've easily gotten my $20 and more back out of it.

Hopefully the rest of you will as well. If you have the vault titles on hard copy you can just trade them in and likely pay for Access for the year on that alone.

I guess the real value of the service will be shown in the future with which new games are added to the vault and when. All in all at this point though, for me... I like it and I'm sure others will too.
What does the Vault mean? Do you get the games in their for free?

When you could trade it for 20+ even when the game is put in the vault with all the bonus offers gamestop always has.
VERY valid point - I never buy digital for that reason. But FIFA 15 will be my first. I kinda dig being able to boot it up instantly and I have a $5 voucher on XBL so it will be like I'm getting the game for $49!

I'm a simple man - yes I know.

What is the different between EA Access and EA Season ticket? Is Ea Season ticket available for Ps4 ? I don't understand Sony, let the costumer make the decision.

Season ticket is only last - gen

Oh I see, its that you don't have an xb1, huh?

Throwing out all the extra benefits of EA access, getting four games for $5/month or $30/year is a great deal and arguing against that figure to say it's NOT a good deal just reads as salty bitterness. Seriously.

Also, before this thread gets shut down for turning into a console war, again, it should be noted this thread really shouldn't be in the Madden thread anyways.

Season ticket is only last - gen
EA Access is the next gen version of EA Season Ticket.
  • Season Ticket is no longer available.
  • It now cost $30 for the year (or you can pay $5 per month)
  • IN addition to sports games - it includes other EA titles like Dragon Age.
  • Game are available 5 days in advance instead of 3.
  • FULL version of the other EA titles are available for dowload when you subscribe. Currently those are Madden 25, FIFA 14, Battlefiled 4 and Peggle 2. Those titles are playable as long as you are a subscriber
  • This is not available on PS4 (Blame Sony)

Hope that helps.
