PS4 News: Sony steal a major Xbox One exclusive as PlayStation brings EA Access to console

EA hasn’t had a particularly flawless run this generation with some major flops, underperforming sequels, and questionable business practices.

Not only that, Sony was no doubt cautious that EA Access may clash with its own game streaming service, PlayStation Now. Although both offer different perks, it’s easy to see why Sony may have been reluctant given the confusion when juggling multiple subscriptions.

It will be interesting to see what differences there are between the Xbox One and PS4 version of EA Access, and whether the Vault will prove enticing enough for PlayStation fans to sign up.

Clearly, though, Sony is starting to make moves to be more digitally savvy and are slowly (very slowly) catching up to Xbox who are certainly better prepared for a digital future at the time of writing.

We can’t wait to see where else this could lead in the future. If you do want to know more about EA Access, check out the FAQ just below for all the key questions.
