Not having fun with EA Access? Cancel the subscription with our help

When a lot of publishers start launching their own subscription services, you can’t expect EA to just sit and watch. EA has its own subscription service called EA Access (Xbox One and PS4), Origin Access is the PC version of the subscription service. The service on consoles has three primary pillars: Early trials, Member Discounts, and The Vault. We can definitely confirm that most people will subscribe because of the vault. It grants you access to a growing number of EA published software and, even though right now it is mostly sports games, it is actually fairly priced.

The biggest problem is that because Playstation doesn’t have backwards compatibility with the PS3, the Xbox version of the service is far more superior because it gives you access to more games. That being said because the price is so appealing, a one-year subscription still holds a lot of value.
