The Netflix model has really changed how the entertainment industry operates. EA and Microsoft announced yesterday the launch of EA Access Pass, which offers unlimited, all-you-can-game access to select EA titles for $5 a month or $30 a year.
It’s available right now, but in a very raw, beta form. Only five games are available currently: FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, Peggle 2, and Battlefield 4. Yes, these are all last year’s games, but EA Access will also offer free five-day trial play period for its new games even before its retail release.
Now, let’s hope NBA Live 15’s improvement over Live 14 is as drastic as EA has been claiming, because otherwise, even in an unlimited video game buffet, that’s one game you don’t want to touch.
