Do you remember your first console? I’m sure you do. You rip open the box, barely able to contain your excitement, and of course, there’s one or two games thrown in the package. Maybe even three or four. Over the coming weeks and months you cherish those games, because there’s no money left to splurge on any alternatives.
2015 rolls around and you chuck another pile of money at Microsoft for their latest console. The shop tells you that you can have Arkham Knight for $30 if you buy today, so you jump at it. When you finally get sick of drifting around in the Batmobile, you begin craving your sports fix, your shooter fix, your racer fix…, but you haven’t got hundreds of dollars left in the gaming fund.
Don’t panic. On the Xbox One, the only thing you need to expand your gaming library is $4.99 a month, or $29.99 a year. How? EA Access.
I don’t want this to sound like a marketing ploy; I just truly adore EA Access and the gaming opportunities it gives me as an Xbox One owner. As a youngster, I could have only dreamed that I would be able to play some of the latest sports, shooters, racers, and family games for such a low price.
However, there’s some Xbox One owners out there who are still on the fence. I constantly wander into a number of online discussions in which people will ponder whether to buy Titanfall or Battlefield 4, unaware that they could be getting so much more for their money.
So, let me try and answer some of those questions for you. Do you really need it if you’re not big on sports games? What’s the difference between the Vault games and the trials? Is there a catch? Click the button below to find out.
