I should have read this more closely... I didn't see that I could pay $30 for the year. That's a much better deal than $5 per month.  I'll re-download the app and subscribe tomorrow.

I did the $30 plan.. I'll try it for a year.

Was going to buy this year's Madden anyway, so the 10% saves me $6 and I get it a few days early. Meanwhile, I'm downloading Madden 25 and FIFA just to check them out.

I'll see how it goes, but depending on what they add over the year, it could be worth it.

Ya we'll see.  I spent money on COD Elite which was half that price or more than half.  Might as well get free games too now with it.  Loving Fifa!

Wait.. you signed up?  You got in the dashboard preview program?!?!??!  Did my invites work!?

I got an invite from XBL.. I've been part of the preview program and they have been good about sending me stuff quickly.

You like that Fifa game, huh? I'm not a fan of soccer, but I'll give it a try. Some sports make great video games. I'm really looking forward to NHL.

I can't wait to control the Stanley Cup Champions!   

We'll have to team up on Fifa later.

Well, I think I'm trending towards being in.  Boba Trevin had a preview invite so we accepted that and have the preview app. The console still says pending though. Sure that will change soon.  Only thing that sucks balls is, you have to be signed in as Boba Trevin to access the preview shit.  When I go to the app as myself, it says this console is assigned to another account.  Damn kid hijacked my console!!

I hope they add NFS Rivals, it's an older game. I'd also like to see Plants Vs Zombies Warfare but with the PS copies coming out soon I doubt they'll add that soon.

Ya that sucks... but it's working then!   NICE!  my invites finally worked!   I knew sending them to your boys and you would do the trick.

Hey @Master X how awesome would it be if they brought out a console version of the new Sim City to play on that!   I'd love that.

Oh wow!   I'm glad I'm in the Year for this.  Game is forever.

EA has pledged not to remove titles from EA Access once they've been added to the service's digital library.

Speaking to CVG, EA exec Peter Moore explained that The Vault (EA's name for its digital library) "will get its share of triple-A titles. We haven't made any announcements to that extent about exactly when, where and how, but the Vault will be substantial."

Initial games offered in the service include Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25 and Peggle 2, but Moore says that "new game additions will be determined by franchise and timing."

"We have to make decisions along that way, so there's no template, like 30 days after a game ships it goes into the Vault. I think one of the key things is that once a game goes into the Vault it stays there, it's not going to be taken out, that's a commitment we've made."

EA Access launched in closed beta on Xbox One last month, with the service offering unrestricted access to digital copies of select EA titles, early access to new games and a 10 percent discount on EA content.

A subscription to the service costs 3.99/month or 19.99/year, with a launch due to roll out to all Xbox One users later this summer.

The service has not been announced for any other platforms.
