Will be interesting to see how this develops. Not sure what the grace period will be before new games are added to the log.

Did anyone else that's in the preview program get a beta code for this? I got one, but I haven't tried it yet. Hopefully I can spend some time with it this weekend.

This is an interesting concept. I would pay $5 a month for a digital rental service. Gamefly ought to look into something like this.

I don't have an Xbox One, otherwise I would be willing to try this out.

But would you pay $5 for just EA games? I can't think of anyone who would. It less than 6 months those games go for about $5 a piece to begin with. Terrible value if looked at solely as a means to play EA games.

Now, if this were a service that offered ALL games. Like, it was ran by MS....I could see it being something worthy of attention.

Pretty much my thoughts, EA really doesn't produce enough games that I care about to make this worth it to me.
