Sony has announced that they will not be taking part in EA’s newly announced ‘EA Access’ program.

A Sony spokesperson said;

“We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect,” a statement reads. “PlayStation Plus memberships are up more than 200 per cent since the launch of PlayStation 4, which shows that gamers are looking for memberships that offer a multitude of services, across various devices, for one low price.”

“We don’t think asking our fans to pay an additional $5 a month for this EA-specific program represents good value to the PlayStation gamer.”

In case you didn’t hear the news, yesterday EA announced their new ‘EA Access’ subscription service which would allow gamers access to a select group of titles. On top of the games that will be available to play for being a subscriber to this membership, members will also be granted a 10% discount on all EA digital content, full games and DLC, and access to EA games a week before they release. The membership will cost $4.99 a month.
