Sony has explained why the upcoming EA Access subscription service from Electronic Arts is not coming to PlayStation platforms, stating that the scheme is not good value for money.

EA Access is a subscription service that offers its members a discount on EA digital goods, early access to downloadable trials of EA games and access to a library of EA titles. It's only coming to Xbox One, says EA.

When asked why EA Access is not also coming to PlayStation, a Sony rep told Game Informer, "We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect."

The rep compared EA Access to Sony's own PS Plus service, stating, "We dont think asking our fans to pay an additional $5 a month for this EA-specific program represents good value to the PlayStation gamer."

EA plans to charge $5/month or $30 for a year of EA Access membership, while PS Plus costs $9.99/month or $49.99 for the year.
