    It took nearly two weeks since discovering that NBA Live 15 was headed to the EA Access "Vault" but the game is now one of the benefits of the subscription service. Those with active subscriptions will have unlimited time with the full game for no additional cost. The EA Access service is currently exclusive to Xbox One as Sony opted not to allow it for the PS4.
