So, does Game pass ultimate give me access to EA Play titles on PC? I can't seem to get my EA account and Xbox accounts to connect. I can download everything fine on Xbox, but on PC I can only get Game Pass games, not EA. I wasn't sure if this was a problem with the account or if that's separate on PC. Not a huge deal as I stick mostly to console anyway. I thought I had my EA and Xbox accounts linked properly.
I don’t think EA Play through Game Pass Ultimate has arrived on PC yet, but I saw somewhere that it is coming to PC soon.

Never mind, they added it March 18th.

This series never mattered to me to begin with, it's also a series that only sells a little over a million copies every year and makes some money from mtx but it's not a system seller other than a few people here and there.. MLB forced this to happen or Sony was going to lose the license, at least this way they get paid for making the xbox versions as well as making sure nobody else gets to make a baseball game that will compete with theirs. It sucks for them that MLB went this way but in the end they still benefit because there is no way they make a game for MLB to publish on xbox and not get paid for it. I'm sure xbox fans are glad to finally have a new game coming to GP, sadly it's still not a game made by MS but at least you guys who ONLY buy xbox get something new for a change.
LOL....GP just got Outriders bruv....I couldn't care less about this game but it's pretty funny to see the butthurt. Really sounds like you are damage controlling with your Gamepass take but whatevs.

I thought it was bullsh*t that a platform holder had exclusive rights to a sporting license from the jump (don't care about MLB but from a principal standpoint). At least EA with Madden was 3rd party and platforms weren't just left out of the sport entirely (but I generally don't agree with that either and was pissed NFL 2K series had to end). The fact that it's now GP on day one is just a bitter pill to swallow for the warriors out there. Even though I don't care, I'll D/L and fire it up a few times...prolly be a Gamepass quest around it for MS points ;)

NHL out on April 12th for any fellow puck heads out there. Be warned though, it seems like this is another "mail it in" version for them.

NHL 21 is out and the full MLB The Show pre-load seems to be available (it was only downloading a few hundred mb before).

Sports fans...

NHL is horrible this year. The "AI" is laughable. One moment they are warping through you to steal a puck, the next they give you a breakaway.

The last time I bothered trying an NHL game I still had to use the black and white buttons. Wish someone would make a good one, but not holding out hope.

Same. I played it on PC and got lost in the Mods... 200 hours... o_Oo_O

I actually think I put even more time into the remastered Special Edition on PS4 Pro than my original 360. Played through the entire campaign and all DLC main stories again

It's a fun game to play with different styles of classes, makes it easy to get sucked in again!

I have read rumors that Sony is coming with a clause to prevent some games on release day to be also on gamepass.

If this is even true, I think it is stupid.

If so, it'll most likely be on a game by game basis. I doubt there's anyway Sony could implement a blanket policy that says games on their platform cannot release day & date on GamePass. It would be up to individual publishers to sign such a deal.

And, if Sony were to implement such a policy I believe it would backfire on them. Such a policy would only start an even bigger arms race on who can outspend who in the effort to secure games for their platforms. Sony cannot match MSFT's cash reserves or spending on gaming. So if they try and limit games from appearing on GamePass it would further reduce their own selection of games which in the long run would slow the growth of their own platform. Sony's best bet is to compete with an innovative idea of their own, one that offers more or equivalent gaming value to GamePass. In short.......Sony has to build a better product/service.
