EA Sports may move to a subscription based gaming.

In an interview with Bloomberg, EA chief Andrew Wilson floated the possibility that his company might drop annual sports game releases in favor of updates or subscriptions. The publisher could treat the games as a "365-day, live service," he said. Instead of buying FIFA or Madden every year, you might pay a regular fee or download content to keep it relevant.

Wilson argued that the shift toward internet content made this possible. When sales are moving from plastic discs to online stores, why not treat games more like services? There would be challenges if EA embraced the internet fully by offering streaming games instead of downloads (what does the game look like when it's not on a home machine?), but it's notable that this is even a realistic option.

The executive didn't suggest pricing, let alone offer a timetable.

I'll stick to the $30 (or less) a year and just wait 6 months for them to hit the vault.

if this does happen i would expect the monthly and annual payments to get increased. probably would be best to buy a bunch of the redeemable serial codes when they go on sale for $30 and hold onto them.

This will NEVER happen:

1. They make a ton of money just off promotion every year (cover athlete announcements, player rating announcements, tournaments, etc)

2. EA is an awful company and they don't give a fu*k about the fans. Making a slightly different game annually is more profitable so that's what they will continue to do.

Basically nothing will ever change until Madden gets some competition or if people start voting with their wallet and stop buying it, but there are multiple threads in the Bx gaming section with a bunch of flunkies screaming "day one cop" on bullsh*t so sales won't drop any time soon either.

this isnt an official announcement from EA so nothing is being changed for EA access subscriptions, its just speculation on what they MIGHT plan on doing in the future.

ya i highly doubt EA goes fully subscription based as long as they have the NFL rights to them selves.

if some one like rockstar does it then it would be some sh*t cause i definitely see them doing subscription based games with GTA's online mode in the future.

Pretty sure it would be like EA Access and once you cancel the next month you wouldn't have access to the games.


This makes sense. People are wising up. Not many people are buying all the games every year anymore and maybe picking one at the most so they could double up their money. I know their sales are down and they are re-releasing games with roster updates anyways. I've been blindly buying EA NHL for almost 20 years. That sh*t ended this year. Ended with Madden 7 years ago. They got me for Fifa so $60 but next year it might be $0. Pretty sure it would just be EA Sports games or maybe they will have tiers. $10 for Sports and $20 for all EA games

So $120 a year to play Madden, Fifa, NHL, UFC, Live, and Tiger Woods. I'd probably pull the trigger on that but if they keep their same business model probably getting $0 from me next year.
