Ever since Netflix came along and introduced video-on-demand for a competitive price, a good service (for the most part) and a huge library of titles to choose from, gamers across the globe have imaged the concept being applied to video game.
We’ve already seen it in some forms; OnLive, the now defunct game streaming service promised to offer a wealth of games for one monthly price while Sony is currently testing its own version with PS Now.
It looks like EA has seen the potential and may want a slice of that pie, at least according to a new survey published on behalf of the mega-publisher.
The new survey asks whether you would be open to paying a monthly fee for access to a library of both old and new games for the PC. Though we’d expect this to be just EA games, the survey mentions multiple publishers and their biggest franchises.
It wouldn’t be too far-fetched to imagine that EA would want in on the Netflix-style delivery gig as the firm already has its own online services with Origin, but whether it’ll actually push forward with an all-you-can-eat game streaming/subscription service is something we’ll have to wait to see.
Interestingly, the survey also notes Rockstar Games’ console-only Red Dead Redemption. A sign it’s eventually going to release on PC? No, probably not.
Would you be up for it, or are you happy with your physical/digital library of games that actually, you know, own. Let us know down in the comments section below.
