  • News ANTHEM Comes to EA Access on PS4 Today

    For those that are still curious

    And there it is, ANTHEM is now a part of Electronic Arts' subscription-based service on PlayStation 4, EA Access.

  • Feature Is EA Access Worth It on PS4?

    Should you subscribe to EA Access?

    It’s been five years since Sony famously suggested that EA Access doesn’t represent “good value” for PlayStation fans.

  • News Is Subscription Service EA Access Finally Coming to the PS4?

    EA hints at more platforms

    Prior to launch, Sony insinuated that EA Access represented poor value for money, and that hasn’t really turned out to be true.
