EA Tests Subscription Access To Game Catalog 63

An anonymous reader writes: Electronic Arts has announced a new program called "EA Access," a subscription-based service that will grant Xbox One users access to a small catalog of EA's popular games, as well as early trials of upcoming games. They're beta testing the service now, and the available games are FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2, and Battlefield 4. (More titles will be added later.) They're charging $5 per month or $30 per year. It probably won't ever include their newest releases, but it's interesting to see such a major publisher experimenting with a Netflix-style subscription service.

    no guarantee that

    a) the game you want will be available,
    2) the game you want will EVER be available
    3) the game you do play remains available for the duration of your subscription
    4) the rate you pay today will at least somewhat resemble the rate you pay tomorrow.

    As much as I've already posted my support for this idea, there's no friggin' way Madden.Current will be available at launch for $30/year for year after year.

    Madden fans are a slam dunk lock for $70/year.
