Peter Moore says the Vault will offer triple-A games and pledges not to remove games that have been added to it.

Damn that is huge news. I was almost certain they would remove games.

They'll remove online portions like usual, people misunderstood the policies they posted originally and assumed they'd pull games.

EA games are good enough to keep on there in the first place? Well that certainly is news to me..

P.s
They're not 'free' games, you pay for them.

No you pay for a service, that INCLUDES the games. Arguably, the other portions of the service are more valuable.

Yeah, this has been the way it is from the start, but the wording of the TOS referring to removal of services people misread as meaning the games themselves, not online connectivity. EA has shut down the servers for most of their games after two years for as long as I can remember. One exec actually stated this on day one, but it kind of got lost in the shuffle.

As an aside, he said it would include triple-A games. From EA's standpoint, do they make anything else?

That's good news. So I'm still gonna wait until the Vault grows before I bite.
