Publisher Electronic Arts has doubled down on its efforts with EA Access, noting that a game that becomes part of the new subscription service will remain available forever - or as long as the service is available.

At least that is what EA chief operating officer Peter Moore has told CVG, among a few other clarifications of the service. Moore also said that, because a game's inclusion in The Vault - the service's catalog - is permanent, EA has to be very picky about what it will include.

"New game additions will be determined by franchise and timing," he said. "We have to make decisions along that way, so there's no template, like 30 days after a game ships it goes into the Vault. I think one of the key things is that once a game goes into the Vault it stays there, it's not going to be taken out, that's a commitment we've made."

Those worried that due to the picky nature of its permanency that EA Access won't see any AA titles need not worry, as Moore clarifies: "The Vault will get its share of triple-A titles," Moore told CVG. "We haven't made any announcements to that extent about exactly when, where and how, but the Vault will be substantial."

The subscription-based service will charge members a monthly fee of $4.99 or an annual fee of $29.99 to access a catalog of select EA titles, give consumers a ten percent discount on digital purchases on Xbox Live, and early access to select EA titles.

I can see this as a good thing if it wasn't for the possibility of low title numbers. Now we just need something similar for PC. That works.

Should have put the Aussie prices up as those are the US ones.

Here in Australia it's $6.99 AUD a month and $39.99 AUD a year.

Of course. We pay 40% more, as always.

You should point things like this out Eorl, from one Aussie to another. Maybe one day we will get some parity up in this b****.
