Free Game From EA's Origin

Gamers-Association.com: Through an apparently very under-the-radar promotion, one sub-$20 downloadable PC title may be picked up for the low, low price of nothing at all via EA’s Origin distribution service. Simply stroll on into the this-is-definitely-not-Steam Origin store, find something special priced at $19.99 or below, add it to your cart, and punch in promo code OS3874XVC to redeem your free prize! Results are inconsistent, but click away to see the developing list of confirmed free options. (EA, PC)

I still wont use that service.
TheMrFraz  +   775d ago
Haha, right? I just couldn't resist scoring something for a very rainy day.
da_2pacalypse  +   775d ago
I would literally rather pirate the games than get them for free on that awful Origin client...

PS. I don't pirate video games.

my last computer had origin. i couldn't stand it so i haven't bothered with it since i built this one. EA apparently doesn't realize that gamers want to minimize the apps it takes to run their games. Steam is all i want. Sure, valve doesn't get any money if EA doesn't provide their games through that service, but EA doesn't get any money now either...cuz i'm not installing origin.

simcity would have been EA's only shot for me to install their dreadful service. but after the broadcast from yesterday and what they are doing to this game. I'm sad to say i won't be buying this game nor will origin ever touch my PC.....EVER... E.V.E.R.

never ever ever ever ever ever
Grap  +   775d ago
and that's how we pay back to EA some guys in Neogef got all the games on that list by glitch. EA won't be happy.
Edit: it work for all around the globe not just who from USA. I my self not in US and got 3 games on that list.

MEsoJD  +   775d ago

Ashlen  +   775d ago
Awesome, I got The Sabotuer for free.
TheMrFraz  +   775d ago
Nice! Happy to hear it's still live! There were rumblings that the code had been invalidated...
Ashlen  +   775d ago
Yea, I was skeptical, but I figured what the heck it'll only take a few min's to check, and it worked.
Soldierone  +   775d ago
Be nice if Origin would friggin work....click on things 4 times just so it registers the click.
Intentions  +   775d ago
Nah your net and comp just sucks ass.
Soldierone  +   775d ago
Site actually had heavy traffic and was having issues load.

Still got my free game and downloaded it within 5 minutes so wasn't my internet.
Zha1tan  +   774d ago
nah you're just an EA fan girl
brandonb21  +   775d ago
it works 1 per account so i made 5 got crysis crysis war head sim city bf2 and batman
mafiahajeri  +   775d ago
You in the US? doesnt seem to work in Europe. Anyway I thought about it its stealing and thats not cool so I dont want to do it, I wouldnt enjoy playing the games if I got them this way. You and your conscious I guess.
murkster-dubez  +   775d ago
How isit stealing if its a special offer? get a life.
HammadTheBeast  +   775d ago
This is EA we're talking about. You know, the company voted as worst in America by some people (it isn't really).

Stealing from them would be considered a good deed.
ninjahunter  +   775d ago
buy game, register CDkey on steam, profit.
Smashbro29  +   775d ago
which games can you do that with?
ninjahunter  +   775d ago
IDk, I know you can register your steam games on origin. the game i got from origin today isnt on steam so i cant test my theory.
kasasensei  +   774d ago
quite a lot actually, see here
https://support.steampowere...
PastyGangster  +   775d ago
Doesn't work. I tried it with Dragon Age Origins(Which is on steam) And the CD key was invalid.
ninjahunter  +   775d ago
Shame, I guess thats just one thing origin has on steam.
paddystan  +   775d ago
Fucking EA. Only in North America? Even VPN did not work.
mafiahajeri  +   775d ago
@murkster-dubez Yeah making multiple accounts to exploit this is not stealing at all and it it really was a special offer then it would have worked for everyone not some people and specific games.

Notice peopel were saying neogaf members got all those games so is that stealing? YOu tell me?

Cheapass exploiters is what you are. Also what the heck does getting a life have to do with it? You sound like your stuck in the 90's...

"it really was a special offer then it would have worked for everyone not some people and specific games."

Erm, no. The fact that it only works on specific games and to a certain group of people is exactly why it is called a 'special offer'.

Besides, both sides get what they want:
People get a bunch of games for free, and EA gets to brag about how Origin has now become 700% more popular.

You're saying that just because you can't use it since you're on Europe, I'm pretty sure you would be doing the same thing if you could.
jobbyroby  +   774d ago
Im in Europe and ive downloaded 4 games!
FordGTGuy  +   775d ago
Just picked up Battlefield 2142.
chasegarcia  +   775d ago
damn...dont know what to get
one2thr  +   775d ago
Mmmm sorry but you can actually use the code more than once :(....
Do it through Origin :(
and then do it through a web browser :(
I would of thought they, had made sure this offer was loop hole proof... :( My second game is Crysis, 1st was BF:BC2

Never been much into FIFA, so I grabbed FIFA 12 just for something different. Burned out on shooters.
Totoro17  +   775d ago
Downloaded Crysis Warhead and am now downloading Dead Space 2 :-D
LordMe  +   775d ago
Got an invalid when I tried the web browser version. But on the downloaded store I got Crysis. Which is cool, need something to benchmark my comp with, and I always wanted to play it.
--Onilink--  +   775d ago
would have been really nice to try it, but for Origin, Central America and Puerto Rico are still somehow the same thing as Spain.... so no promos for me.... actually not even buying things is possible, because i sure as hell wont pay in Euros and get ripped off

I think they finally fixed it.
1nsomniac  +   774d ago
:-( yea doesn't work anymore just tried for Crysis & Alan Wake American Nightmare.

Wouldn't mind but I seen this yesterday & then completely forgot to try it.
hiredhelp  +   774d ago
Oh the hate for origin still going on omg's get over yourselvs its buisness they have a right to have there own client and server.
If you had buisness where you eaither pay a cut to another service or cut middle man out do it yourself saving money what would you do...? Anyways gabe stated hes not got a issue with it hes the dominant leading digital distrabution on PC.
Yardie  +   774d ago
We are consumers, if we don't like a service, we have the right to complain about it.

I find it interesting how many people on this site seem to look at things from a business perspective.
Zha1tan  +   774d ago
No thanks jeff,

Origin is terrible and pales in comparison to Steam.
Gamerita  +   774d ago
origin is a SPYWARE programme.

this is why STEAM rules for PC gamers. numero uno service.
Erudito87  +   774d ago
steam does the same stuff
hiredhelp  +   774d ago
@Erudito87
Thankyou your right steam does do same stuff.
@Zha1tan. origin is not tryin to be steam and will never be steam?
They have gone for many years as there own company making there own games as well as being a publisher
Gamerita  +   774d ago
Steam asks for permission before looking through your system.
Merely installing Origin opens your computer up for EA to look through (spyware).

this is why STEAM is not like ORIGIN.
srusli  +   774d ago
