Wish this actually has a start date. "This holiday"? Not until Christmas?

I will say I think Xbox has the leg up for my next gen console money, at least at first.

I've always bought PS first, but I really enjoy Game Pass

This is insane. I too did the XBL conversion, so I'm good until 2022 with Game Pass. Even if that wasn't the case, at full price this is still the best deal in gaming. I've thoroughly enjoyed the past few titles in Game Pass as well: Flight Sim, Battletoads, and Wasteland 3.

Wait, so if you have the $5/month PC Game Pass service, you get EA for free when it goes live?

Xbox Game pass is honestly the best deal in gaming and it's getting better. I hope they don't change it.

I have both currently and considered letting the EA Access membership expire in March. I guess it's decided for me!

A week or two ago I noticed the icon at the bottom of EA Access games changed to EA Play and the EA App was refreshed, so I was wondering if something was changing soon Smilie.....

I wonder if EA is going to do something similar to what they did on PC where there is a "Premium" option which gives access to new games as they are released and a "Basic" (that I guess is bundled with GPU) that is more kin to the current EA Access where you wait a few months before getting newly released games. My son plays Madden all the time and I play Fifa, so I would actually consider paying more to get access to new games as they are released instead of waiting for the end of the seasons for sports games if you have the GPU membership.

So for anyone looking for a deal...you can get Game Pass Ultimate for free through Microsoft/Bing rewards for like, 2 passive minutes a day. I do the following and have GPU through next year, and miss half the days:
  • In mobile app, search for a show and add cast. Cycle through the headshots up top. Takes 30 seconds to max mobile searches.
  • On desktop, go to bing.com, click through headlines to max searches. Takes a few minutes because I usually read a few lol.
  • On either, do the daily quest. I try to do this every day as you get bonuses for streaks
  • On xbox, download the microsoft rewards app; you'll get most if you play with any frequency. Just screw around in there.
I probably hit like, 40% of the above a week and still have enough for another 3 months. I burnt some on a $25 gift card a few weeks ago, too. Also the 3 month GPU normally is around 35k points, but will go on sale. Stock up then. Other people do WAY more than me, but this is max return on effort for me.
Some tips to help your first two bullets. When doing your mobile searches. Just save the tab and each day, go back through your history and the next day forward. For desktop searches, make a folder and save 30 links in there. I did a-z and then numbers 1-10. Right click on folder and open all each day. I am sitting at about 160k points and just hoping they bring 1 year of live back.

This is a ton of value. The series s/x is worth it for ultimate if you never buy a single game
But if you game on pc u don't even need the console.

Still works? Mine is maxed. Wonder if EA play will extend it more or Not
If you are saying that you have close to three years of live gold right now, bit don't have ultimate anymore, and you are going to pay the $14.99/month for Ultimate (for the first month only ) in an attempt to convert your live gold time to ultimate time, can you PLEASE post back here to let us know if it works ? We all know the $1 ultimate trial conversion works once, but nobody in any of the threads has posted confirmation that a paid $14.99 month of ultimate will ALSO convert live gold time to ultimate. Thanks !

You get all of EAs great games like .....uhhhhhhhhh........ 🤷. They literally have nothing I'm interested in playing. But it's still a great deal. I think Microsoft is planning on this being their last console and they do streaming only after this generation of console. Anyone who can pull off being the Netflix of gaming is going to make a killing

Users who have both Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and EA Play purchased through Xbox will have their EA Play membership canceled and any remaining time over 50 days will be rounded up and converted to the nearest month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at a ratio of 3:1 based on ERP

Repped. This is really important. I am going to keep my eye on this closer to conversion.

And if you game on pc, you're paying considerably more for that pc than if you purchase a console...but that's a different discussion
