Let the consumer decide if its good for themselves. Subscription service gaming has been a long time coming. If the value proposition becomes as strong as something like Netflix, then I see no reason why it cannot succeed. Could be a shortsighted decision by Sony. Xbox one exclusively having subscription services for gaming might be a big deal.
The problem is these closed systems are (duh) closed. EA isn't doing that on the XBox One because it is free or because they have the freedom to do it.
But is having another subscription on top of the subscription you may pay with the console on top of the subscription you may pay for an individual game a big deal? I guess it is because this seems like a badly constructed deal not instead of it is a subscription. Would you pay another $30 for Activision to do the same thing for Activision games? How about Ubisoft? It doesn't matter the vendor where offering access to their games at a discount is a laughable "bargain" because I get that for free anyway.
