Why are Neogafs acting like Ubisoft mirroring EA Access is the death of gaming?

Because it very well might be if it becomes a successful practice.

Explain please. I don't get it?

Because SonyGAF is incapable of not blaming anything and everything on MS. It is a bad sign for AAA gaming though. Anyone without the IP catalogue to support an exclusive branded service will get squeezed out, and things weren't great for those guys in the first place.

I'm ok with this, and I would definitely like an Ubisoft Access model since I really enjoy their library and annual franchises.

These programs are still going to be offered alongside buying titles on disc. So many people overreacting to change and new options...

If it becomes successful then gaming becomes a subscription based activity where publishers are able to force you into their service to be able to play a game you like.

Those same publishers would control the pricing and benefits of their service. Do you really trust publishers like EA to do the right thing with it?

There is no credible evidence proving that disc based games would remain if a system like this was adopted. For now they have to remain, but, should these services become the norm you would most likely see physical discs phased out.

It sounds more like you are saying it is a bad sign for medium tier publishers than AAA gaming?
