EA Access Hits 5 Million, Uptake Was Faster On PS4 Than Xbox One

Electronic Arts has announced that its premium subscription service, EA Access, has now passed five million members. Even more interesting, however, is that the company revealed it was adopted far quicker on the PlayStation 4 than it was on Xbox One.

EA Access has been available on Microsoft’s console for a while now, and only hit PS4 earlier this year. As such, there was a far more robust lineup available for when it launched on Sony’s machine, which no doubt contributed to the uptake.
