EA confirmed today that racer Need for Speed: Rivals will join EA Access’s collection of digital games in the “coming weeks.” This will give EA Access subscribers full access to the developer Ghost’s high-octane driving game. For $5 a month or $30 per year, you can get a membership to EA Access, which gives you an instant library of games from EA’s vault. Need for Speed: Rivals will join existing vault titles like Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, and more.

I am still waiting for them to start selling the access cards on Amazon as they said they would.

If they keep adding games often then I'm more and more interested in it.  Besides, you can pay once, or for the month, play what you want, then stop and start again if they add a few more games you're interested in.

Good enough value as it is - and a new game already. I'm happy with this!

Just traded in my NFS:Rivals and Fifa 14 and got $41 for them.  Made sure to redeem my Legends Code from Fifa before trading in the game though.

such bad value for me

 

Corrected that for you ^ ;) 

 

Seriously though people are constantly saying that it's such bad value, it's very subjective. 

 

For me, I've paid £20 and been able to play two games that would not have cost me more to find digital copies. So for me it's great value :p

I believe that was more of a dig at Sony - they thought it didn't provide great value that PlayStation users expect of them. Poor excuse, because as you said it's great value already!

The value keeps getting better the more and more games they add to the vault.

I assume the One version of Rivals uses the XBL Compute network?

 

The PC version is constantly finding a new server when the host disconnects, it's frackin annoying.

It'd be great if they added a new game at least every month but I think they might do it faster, it's in their best interests to get as many people on this subscription as they can and to do that they'll have to keep adding more and more.

I just wish I liked EA's games more :(

 

Apart from Battlefield which I think I'm pretty much done with I'm not realy a big fan of many of their other games to warrant this being good value for me. If I didn't already have BF then this would be a no brainer though.
