EA Access New Games Added (and Coming 2016)

Deal Link:
Not sure if this is the right place for it or not, but seeing as how PS+ and XBGWG get a thread every month, I figured it might be ok.

Just added and now available are:

Heavy Weapon
Bejeweled 2
Bejeweled 3
Feeding Frenzy
Feeding Frenzy 2
Zuma

Being added next month are:

EA UFC 2
Mirror's Edge: Catalyst

And being added in December is:

Star Wars Battlefront

If anyone was thinking of picking up any of those games, you might be better served with an EA Access subscription for a year instead. Also, pretty safe to say we can expect a sale on the Star Wars Season Pass around the same time as the game hits the Vault

EA Access is by far the best deal this generation (can't believe it's not on psn). $30 for a year is awesome. People should sell their battlefronts now and just get this as you won't be playing it (your physical copy) in a year from now.

Awesome. Don't have any of those XBO games so looking forward to trying them out. I do find UFC very difficult based on the previous game. Controls are hard to remember.

Yeah, for PC.
Maybe MS is subsidizing the price, either way, you don't even need XBL Gold subscription for EA Access on Xbone, but of course that would limit your multiplier aspect of the games in the vault.
I'm glad I've waited for Catalyst, I would give it a second chance now

Yeah I think Playstation really dropped the ball on not allowing it on their service. I think that was kind of the start of their downfall. They just don't want to encourage competition to PS+.

I meant to say a combination of PS PLUS and PS NOW, something that sony has stated as their reasons to reject ea access for the ps4.

i.e. both are sony-owned and operated game rental systems, and sony wants ALL the money from gamers looking for a game rental system, not just a small piece of the pie. and they certainly don't want competition.

Mirror's Edge is definitely a good offering. Everything else is pretty meh.

Its more like they wanted their piece of pie. Microsoft doesnt get there 30% take from ea like when they sell a game plus from what i have heard and will still have to support the app and questions surrounding it. Microsoft did it because they are desperate and wanted any leverage they can get to compete with sony (ea access, backwards compatibility, etc) if they were on top this probably would have never happened with them. With Sony on top they felt like they didn't need to unless they got a piece, plus they are worried then that other publishers would start doing it (activistion, ubisoft) and they wouldn't make as much revenue from their store or off the licenses of retail discs as everybody was instead subscibing to the company netflix style of games.

obviously, and that's why everyone knows the best game ecosystem always exists on the platform that is on SECOND PLACE on the sales lists - like Avis, they "try harder" to get your business.

the guy in first place always plays the evil overlord, tossing crumbs to its simpleton customers, while the one in second place is the benevolent angel, and invents new customer-friendly strategies to gain market share. look at the difference between sony (good guy on the ps3, ps plus freebies, no pay for online) and microsoft (bad guy on the xbox 360 - eat our gruel or else!) this generation, but sony made up a LOT of ground through the 10 years of that generation, finally topping out in sales right near the end.
