Makes sense, they have PlayStation+ to sell.

Following the announcement of EA Access, the subscription service that provides access to a subset of EA titles, multiple outlets have opined on the subject of publisher-specific subscription services, including us! Now Sony has weighed in via email with Game Informer, and doesn’t have much positive to say.
“We evaluated the EA Access subscription offering and decided that it does not bring the kind of value PlayStation customers have come to expect,” a Sony representative told us via email. “PlayStation Plus memberships are up more than 200% since the launch of PlayStation 4, which shows that gamers are looking for memberships that offer a multitude of services, across various devices, for one low price. We don’t think asking our fans to pay an additional $5 a month for this EA-specific program represents good value to the PlayStation gamer.”
