SCEE President Jim Ryan has said that Sony doesn’t have a problem with EA Access, but stated that it doesn’t believe the service sits well alongside its own PlayStation Plus subscription offering.
Ryan told Metro GameCentral at gamescom: “We don’t have anything against EA Access, we just need to position it… these sort of offerings they’ve got to fit into the framework of everything we do and everything that we offer. And we’re just not quite comfortable with how it sits within the whole ecosystem of our digital offering, including PlayStation Plus.”
EA Access offers users access to a vault of EA games in exchange for a subscription fee. At present it is only available on Xbox One, after Sony said it evaluated the service and decided not to bring it to PS4.
“You know we’ve got PlayStation Plus and we feel that offers our consumers the best value in terms of a subscription offer,” said Ryan.
