EA and Microsoft ‘Wish You Were Here’ on Xbox One

Refer a friend and play free games for a year.

Xbox Canada has announced a new promotion in conjunction with Electronic Arts intended to spread the love of Xbox One. The gist of it is that if you can get a friend to purchase an Xbox One, you’ll both receive a free 12-month membership to EA Access. From the e-mail:

EA Access offers $400 worth of games in The Vault and you can instantly play a growing library of EA titles, including: EA SPORTS NHL 15, EA SPORTS FIFA 15, Madden NFL 15, NBA Live 15, EA SPORTS UFC, Battlefield 4, Need for Speed Rivals, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Peggle 2 and more. You’ll also get early access to new releases and 10% off on EA digital purchases through Xbox One.

So how do you get a friend to join in? The key is to recruit them by way of this handy-dandy postcard generator, which produces such visually stimulating enticement such as this:


There are seven games to choose from for your message, with two options for each. In addition to a number of the EA titles named above, there are also some Microsoft titles such as Forza Horizon 2 and Halo 5.
