Review: Apple's early 2015 13" MacBook Pro with Force Touch trackpad

EA revolutionizes gaming with Netflix-style subscription service – but only on Xbox One

EA Access on the Xbox One, showing The Vault game subscription service
EA, in one fell swoop, has changed the entire landscape of gaming and made it much more feasible to buy an Xbox One instead of a PS4. Starting today, beta testers will be able to subscribe to EA Access ($5 per month or $30 annually), giving them unlimited access to some of EA’s biggest games Considering these top-tier games usually cost $70 each, gaining access to all (or most) of EA’s games for just $30 per year is an incredibly good deal — so good that, if you’re into EA games, the Xbox One actually starts to make a lot more sense than the PS4. This is crazy, crazy stuff from EA — really, what is the company thinking?
