EA Announce New Gaming Subscription Service — Nintendo Should Do The Same

EA announced a new subscription service Wednesday, giving those willing to pay a monthly fee unlimited access to a select library of games. Nintendo should do the same.

EA’s offer is this: pay £3.99 per month and you gain access to a handful of hit games to play, such as FIFA, Madden and Battlefield. The service goes by the name of ‘EA Access’ — you can think of it as a mix between Netflix and PlayStation Plus. If you stop paying, you stop playing.

Currently in beta, EA’s new service is open to Xbox One owners only for now. Those who sign up will find they  have access to just four games to start with — those are Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Madden NFL 25, and Peggle 2.

Although the service is in its infancy, and some may have doubts about it, the basic idea is a sound one — I mean, the days of owning physical games are numbered anyway right? So what should Nintendo be doing?
