    With EA Access do you get the DLC for free, for a discounted price, or still have to pay full amount?

However, they do occasionally do permanent giveaways (the first two Battlefield 4 DLCs were given away permanently to EA Access members during certain promotions), and currently Battlefield 4's and Battlefield Hardline's Premium subscriptions are included in the Vault.

Also if a game in a shop is £40 you can't say to the sales clerk "I don't value this game that high. I'll give you £20 for it" or "I think this game is worth more so I'll give you £50 for it" (a branded store isn't likely to let you do that after all). So in essence its objective value is its set price. If you then want to value it at £20 when you sell it on then its objective value has changed because you've set it. It becomes more subjective in a scenario such as an auction because you have no control over what others value it at that point (unless of course you set a "minimum" it has to go for).Value is subjective. There are plenty of games on sale for $50 that I think are worth $10. That is its value to me regardless of what the store thinks. No, they won't sell it to me for $10, but that's because they believe the value is higher.

    Under your theory it's impossible to reconcile stores putting a game on sale when another store does not. Those are two set values, but they are different. If it were objective, it could not be different.

    Value is subjective. You can set an objective value for an object, but that does not mean an individual will agree with that value. It's just that sometimes what an individual believes the value is doesn't matter (it matters at a macro level and is based on supply and demand).
    You are completely and unequivocally wrong, and clearly don't understand the concept. Keep trying though.

    Value is as subjective as an opinion is.

    FYI for anyone wanting to tackle EA Sports UFC achievements, the online is almost non-existent. The Community Manager over on the official forums insists that everyone open and forward their ports, but when they respond the CM is nowhere to be found.

    The online sucks. Wasn't like this late 2015.

    are there any easy completions that one can complete quickly?

    UltraAmoeba said:How does anyone not have EA Access already?Agreed. But look how many salty butthurt people responded. Especially the ones bashing EA while they have 500K Gamerscore and literally play every piece of garbage that comes out. There's no telling how many Activision games they've all bought, which is far worse than supporting EA. Oh the irony.

    XPhiles in IA said:are there any easy completions that one can complete quickly?Peggle 2, but you'll need to buy the DLC if you want to complete it.

    The intrinsic value is not the only theory of value in economics, and in fact is not even the most spread.

    Having said that, I think you guys are approaching the "value" term from different definitions, and hence the confusion.

    As the other user says, value can be subjective, because if for me something doesn't have value enough to justify spending X amount of money, then I simply don't buy it. As simple as that, and you cannot influence the value I give to a product. Now one can say that "the value" is determined by the price tag, and therefore the product has a value, which is derived from the price, and that would be correct as well under that point of view.

    This difference is clearer to see in fleamarkets, bazaars and the like, where you can negotiate what you pay for a product.

    Something is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. If I'm willing to pay a certain price, obviously it's worth it... if you're not, obviously it's not.

    can anyone try it out if Trial games work or not ??
    Would be nice to try out all Trial games without involving main tag to popping any achievos.
