    I find it odd that they aren't doing this with Origin.

    Their Origin efforts right now boil down to "We will give you free games please please please please use Origin"

    And what happens when all publishers do this?

    Is that necessarily a bad thing? I get that some people here might not be into EA because of SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS but what about (Insert your favorite developer here)? If you enjoy a particular devs games enough to the point that you'll probably buy all of their games new, then $30 a year for a 10% discount for each, early access to the games, plus year old games for "free" (with your subscription cost) sounds like a pretty good deal.

    I lurk. That's it.

    To be fair, this is nothing new. I can remember playing against Day[9] in the Warcraft III Beta.

    I don't see the edge a person gets from early mp access as being a big deal. There will always be a gap between the mgl420snipez crowd and everyone else anyways.

    Yeah, in the early days of something it is a slight advantage but that quickly goes away over time.

    Put down for a month to play BF4 until Destiny hits (gave away my disc copy). At first it only offered me the discount and I was confused, the I realized I had to uninstall the disc one and reinstall the download version. Plan to check out Peggle 2 as well. It auto renews so I set a calendar reminder to cancel before next month. You can manage the sub via the Xbox Settings page though.

    I put down for a month too. I figured I'd give the service a try and play some football/soccer/peggle while I wait for Destiny and NHL 15. The service will give me 10% off the purchase of NHL 15 and then I'll probably cancel if I find I'm not getting much use out of the Vault games. It really depends on if I find it worthwhile. I could just as easily resub for a year if they announce anything interesting.

    Need For Speed Rivals will be added to the Vault in the next few weeks according to EA.

    For only 4.99 / month, you too can have access to such hit classic titles as Peggle 2 and some old Madden game!
