damn i hate orign why cant EA just use Steam and stop being little bitches

They use Origin because they don't like losing their profits...I imagine.

All I know is I'm probably not buying BF4 for PC because of how awful Origin is...I mean my god people are actually able to steal GAME LICENSES...

EA Customer Support literally handed over my buddies BF3 license while he was at work, to some random joe.

All I know is EA as a publisher is awful, I've had some of my worst experiences with EA. BF3 was fun but I had to enjoy it on my 360.

I hate Origin, using a web browser to play MP in a FPS game is unnatural imo. Console versions were weaker graphically (duh), but as far as browsing multiplayer matches the console versions nailed it. The in game menus when trying to find and join a match was perfect imo.

I’m going with the PS4 version for BF4, PC will still win in the graphics category, but this time around we shouldn’t be staring at a Vaseline screen anymore and most likely next gen will have the same or almost same amount of players online. In some maps 24players on 360 and PS3 wasn’t enough… *cough* Armoured Kill *cough* Oh and no Origin :D

For the first time ever I'll not be pre-ordering a battlefield title. I've been playing since the pre-launch 1942 demo...

quite a shame. Sure Origin has a little to do with it but I'm not a fan of season passes and that ultimately sealed the deal for me. That and BF4 is just essentially BF2 on the frostbite engine.

@ShabbaRanks
64 Players are very likely for Battlefield 4 -Next gen version + PC version. Anyway.

PS4 and X720
8 cores - 8 threads @ 1.8-2.0 Ghz likely.

My PC has 4 cores and 4 threads at 2.4 Ghz. I am certain the PS4 can keep pace or outrun my system. My PC does fine with 64 players and decent level of graphics. Map size used to scale to player count in Battlefield 2. I don't know why it didn't scale on Battlefield 3.

Sadly I cannot pre-order PS4 version just yet.

@shabbaRanks

the game itself is not played in the browser....there is an actual BF3 program you install, its just that the MP menu is in browser...

and have you not played the new Medal of Honor???

sorry to sink your battleship but origin is now in console games.... you have to log in and there is even a pop-up menu.....

Pre-orders for a game that has nothing revealed really. Tomorrow there is the reveal though...
caseh  +   635d ago
Funny stuff, the final expansion for BF3 only come about 3 weeks ago and now they are taking pre-orders for BF4.

I'm out, a bit tired of companies releasing a game for full retail then releasing about 4 expansions (which costs MORE than the cost of the game when new) then announcing the next game moments after they've released the last expansion.

pre-order if you like being consistently parted of your cash...

I agree, better wait a little and buy the all inclusive edition.
A patient man always wins.
DeadlyFire  +   634d ago
I never buy DLC until its free or close enough to it in the all inclusive version.
iRocket  +   635d ago
Damn shame they still insist using Origin, even if they knew BF4 PC would have a LOT more sales if they used Steam. Origin is itself not a bad software, it does it purpose, it just is simply an inferior product.

You lost me at "only available on Origin"

BF and COD games are ruining the industry.
claterz  +   635d ago
I know, how dare people buy video games that they find enjoyable, that's not what gaming is about!

oh wait...

Hey man, as flawed and repetitive as the Call of Duty series is at this point, the multiplayer's still a fun ride.

And Battlefield's an even bigger and more elaborate ride where you can't just be a one-man army and go all Superman against an entire team (unless you're playing against of idiots.)

day 1 DLC again i wish DICE would leave EA. I hope premium will be worth the again but hate day 1 DLC don't even get me started on on disc DLC.
kikoano  +   635d ago

SlyFoxC  +   634d ago
70

I'm fine with origin, competition is good....I actually love battlelog, just drag and drop my buddies names to invite them to a game, excellent server browser and sorting, great way to view unlokcs, attachments, i actually really, really like it

i've been pc gaming since baldurs gate 1 in 1998, and I am totally cool with origin...i like steam better, no doubt, but i see where ea are coming from

heck, i also like uplay, yes its a pain to have 20 different logins, but i got assassins creed brotherhood, ac2, prince of persia remake and some other game all for $1 in some crazy fire sale on uplay

again, its good for these guys to be competing with eachother, for the consumer!!

SarahFox  +   634d ago
