In this age of streaming, we longer need to buy things to enjoy them. We just need a subscription. And on that note, PlayStation 4 gamers will be happy to know that EA Access is coming to the PS4 this July.

For those still buying copies of their games and unaware of the whole game streaming business, EA Access lets subscribers download and play games in their library (which they call the Vault) for a monthly or annual subscription fee. What this means is that you don't have to buy games to play them.

EA did not give a list of games in the Vault for PS4 owners but it should include the latest titles like Battlefield V, NBA Live 19, FIFA 19, Star Wars Battlefront 2, and more.

Apart from access to the Vault, EA Access also gives subscribers a 10% discount on full game purchases, expansions, and in-game items. There's also Play First Trials, a service that lets subscribers play up to 10 hours on EA's newest games.

EA Access for the PS4 will begin in July and a monthly subscription costs S$6.50. An annual subscription, on the other hand, costs S$34.90, so it's a better value — especially if you are an avid player of EA's games.
