Titanfall may be an Origin exclusive, according to a listing on Green Man Gaming.
Uh oh. That might not go over well with some people.
Origin is a great service mate. People who hate it simply have not tried it, or even if they did they are probably addicted to Steam.
I got a free game on Origin when that coupon code glitch occurred and people were getting tons of free games from Origin. I've never installed that free game. Instead, I bought that same game, and additional DLC, for $19.99 from Steam, installed it and played it. I never touched Origin.
Its gotten A LOT better since launch. I'll give them that. Origin is my dedicated EA PC game client though everything else is on Steam lol.
I actually like origin I don't see why people hate it.
I PREFER Steam. But Origin isn't horrible.
I don't think it's a case of people hating Origin blindly, it's just that we really don't need ANOTHER program like steam, especially when it doesn't have the same benefits. Same goes for Uplay as well.. as a PC gamer you now need to run Steam, Uplay AND Origin and tbh, it's more of an annoyance than it is a benefit.
"People who hate it simply have not tried it" Oh here we go...any one that doesn't like it hasn't tried it.
Origin is ok, but I prefer to keep all of my games on Steam. The only game I ever purchased from Origin was BF3, and that was just this last June, and for a price of $15.00 (Premium Edition). For some reason they gave me a free copy of Medal of Honor (reboot) for free a while back also. Titanfall looks great, but I'll probably end up waiting for a few months after it releases, just to see how this plays out.
Origin is nothing more than a software based digital market mainly exclusively for EA titles. There is practically no form of social interaction other than seeing what games your friends are playing. Steam, on the other hand, is a digital market, social hub, self sustained community market and an online store that houses nearly every PC game.
No Steam, no PS3&4? Are Respawn and EA trying to kill any hope of building a franchise?
"Origin is a great service mate. People who hate it simply have not tried it, or even if they did they are probably addicted to Steam." We have an agent of EA over here!
completely disagree Origin is garbage i use it but its sucks always crashing and whenever i try and redeem games it seems like that service is always down and takes forever
Origin isn't even that bad. People just love hating on Ea.
I do hate the way its mandatory for ea's pc games.
Lets see, they force EVERYONE who plays an online EA game to make an origin account then brag about registration numbers of the service.. that alone gives me enough reason to dislike EA. Still, explain to me what's good about Origin that makes it unique and appealing over say steam?
No, I've never been on the hate EA bandwagon... I've actually defended them on several occasions when people were complaining about trivial and even made-up stuff... but Origin sucks. It is one of, if not the worst gaming services ever imagined. It hurts EA having some of their games require the service, and ultimately hurts the online community because less people may end up playing. Origin isn't a service for the gamer, Origin is EA's overarching cloud based DRM machine.
It's not that bad.. Steam is nice because it is convenient to have all your games in one library.
bf3 sold millions on pc.. This will sell. Even simcity sold millions lol. Let the pc gamers kick and scream then buy. Complain about drm but now it's not the right drm. We want valves drm!!! lol pc gamers smh diablo 3... smh console gamers are not the only fools..
This published by EA All EA games now origin. Myself im buying this game i play bf3 on origin same as i switch to Uplay to play far cry 3 or GR- Future solder Same way as i play rest of my huge library games on steam. Because its not all connected to steam doesn't stop the enjoyment of a game. After all we in a generation of workstations where multiple applications work just fine.
OMG I "WAS" excited for Titanfall and now Not so much! I DO NOT like Origin! but hey I'm gonna have to use it for BF4. Kinda Knew EA was gonna do this. BF3 PC on origin made EA a Ton of cash. like 7 million PC units sold! I think it's a Bad move for a New I.P. to limit it to Origin as EVERY P.C. Gamer was gonna bite the Bullet for Battlefield but they may NOT bite the Bullet for Titanfall. It just sucks that every DARN publisher is making it's own game App. It's getting annoying.
You gotta understand By EA having Origin and Ubisoft having Uplay it cuts out the middle man example steam being paid for there services. It's buisness practice on other hand EA have there own servers good or bad and cloud save system. I really have no issues using all 3 as PC Gamer but one program i do hate dont use is GFWL
Holy fail, god Origin is so shit.
thought they had confirmed it was origin only? or maybe i'm just dreaming... anyways not sure what the big deal is it's a free download....
No surprises here. It's an EA game after all.
Pretty much. Basically I expect any game made by EA/Ubi to require their respective service at this point even if there is an option to buy elsewhere. Its standard practice nowadays. I would rather have it on Steam myself but not a big deal really. Main reason I like Steam is keeps everything tidy (as most of my games are tied to it).
Difference is you can actually buy Ubisoft games on Steam. EA wants to force users to use Origin so they don't sell anything new on Steam. Would mind at all if Origin did what Uplay does but EA wants to force the issue.
You might be able to technically buy games on Steam but you still need to use Uplay to play the games. At least that's the case with Blacklist.
@aiBreeze Yes, and I am fine with that. Point is, I don't appreciate being forced as a consumer. Its trivial for sure, but I'm stubborn like that.
Bad play if true.
Origin gets a raw deal and sits in steam's shadow but it seems the biggest problem with it is having to split your games between both systems - it's fine
Yea, it's SO HARD. to click a button in your start menu just because the game was installed by a different program. /sarcasm. These guys find the smallest things to complain about.
Nearly 95% of games released by EA are origin exclusive nowadays so this should be no surprise to customers. I like to have my games on Steam, but this certainly won't stop me from playing the game. If it's good then I'll play it.
Pretty much the only thing that will prevent me from getting it. The only game I've bought on Origin is Mass Effect 3, back when that was still like my favorite franchise ever. I have Dead Space 3 and Battlefield 3 on there now cause of that Humble Bundle, but I have no intention of spending anymore money on Origin. I'll just live without it if it's not on Steam.
You can still buy it at retail...
What's the point in that? You still have to download Origin and create an account...
@Battleaxe and how is Steam and different then that? You also have to download Steam and create an account to play the games.
Again, I thought everyone got over this whole "Origin is evil" thing back in 2012. If Origin stands in the way of you purchasing two of the most highly anticipated games of the year, then frankly, it's your loss. You guys are like those anti-Steam guys from a decade ago. "I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO LOG INTO STEAM TO PLAY COUNTER STRIKE. VALVE IS EVIL AND I WON'T BE A PART OF THEIR EVIL MASTER PLAN".
I honestly doubt it will be on Steam. EA tends to keep those kind of games on their service. To be honest I have had no real problems with Origin since I've started using it last year. Perhaps you could give me some insight on your experience.
There are no problems with Origin, that hate is one of the following reasons: 1 - EA Hate Bandwagon 2 - Valve/Steam Loyalist 3 - Only owned Battlefield 3 on Origin 4 - Can't use two Game clients at once due to slow PCs (which really isn't much of an issue if you can run Battlefield 3) 5 - Exclusive for EA titles, yet this is again for the EA hate bandwagon while knowing that neither Steam's library was bigger when it launched. 6 - And this weird reason i saw in the comments above that " You still have to download Origin and create an account" How is this even an issue? Doesn't steam requires you to make an account for logging in too or am i living in a different world where Steam gets free access from anyone? I have a steam library of 170+ titles. I am an avid Team Fortress 2 player but im also a Battlefield/Mass Effect/Dead Space fan. Hence im not restricted to a single game client. Origin is getting better, Twitch, Ability to download games in specific folders and all. They don't have the same social hubs and mods community but given some time, they can come up with one.
Seen this coming a mile away. EA publishing should of been the dead giveaway
Well that sucks.
why believe this from a 3rd party site that sells keys? they are not the publisher or developer.
Shooters are not mt thing but this pretty much confirms that I won't be buying this game.
I have no issues with Origin. Its a place where a large amount of my primary games are and it does well at that. Don't need it for anything else and it doesn't interfere either. Looking forward to Titanfall whether Origin or whatnot.
fuck it ill just play killzone and be happy
Same. I hate origin and ulplay. I don't need 10 services. Steam is totally sufficient.
While I am no fan of Origin, it is miles ahead of uplay. Uplay is the most frustrating piece of shit service on the internet.
Man, Microsoft must have gave them a blank check to literally screw everyone......
LOL! Once EA is publishing it's almost a guarantee it will only be on Origin. This way they'll get sales from PC owners through their client. I'm surprised people are surprised by this rumor.
Thought they learned their lesson with that stupid mistake by now. Guess not. Their loss either way.
@Soilderone Dude, a different game client won't stop the game from selling. Sim City sold millions. Battlefield sold millions. Mass Effect sold millions. and that only through Origin. If the game is good, it will sell.
Just like with Battlefield, /shrug whatever. Guess I will get it on Origin then. I prefer Steam but I have never had an issue with Origin, nor Uplay.
Well there goes that, I guess I'll just wait for this to come to PS4 six to twelve months after launch. No sweat, lots of games to play in the meantime.
Then I won't buy it. That was easy.
EA Origin client isn't too bad but their prices for digital games is ridiculous. So that's another game I will be boycotting because of EA. It's £45 on Origin atm for a PC digital download the retail version is the same price. £55 for Xbone and X360 version on the store as well.
I've seen games a lot cheaper on Origin than on Steam several times. Tomb Raider at launch for instance, cost me 10£ less than on Steam, and when you bought the Origin version, it added itself in my Steam library, since it is a Steam game.
I got Tomb Raider for £20 from Greenman Gaming at launch. It doesn't negate the fact that EA Origin titles are a rip off.
Of course, I don't like Origin either. But saying that games on Origin are always more expensive than on Steam isn't true.
Battlefield will always be on origin as your origin account is connected with BATTLELOG which makes it easier than to log in separately twice. No amount of wishing different will change that. I'll be enjoying BF4 while ppl stay sour because of a small free download. I cant believe ppl cant look past a tiny client and are willing to give up on such an awesome game because of it. Well ppl its ur loss.
I don't actually really care one or the other. I get the cheapest possible. It's their problem if they want to lose millions of steam users just for the sake of using their one shit platform. If I buy that game, which is yet another shooter, I'll do it for 15$
So with that news might as well be an X1 exclusive ;)
From EA's ToS - "Unless otherwise specified, there is no requirement or expectation that EA will monitor or record any online activity on EA Services, including communications. --> However, EA reserves the right to access and/or record any online activity on EA Services and you give EA your express consent to access and record your activities. <--" This is why Origin is bad. Oh but wait..! BIG DEAL man, Google is logging whatever you do now anyways. True, but at least they keep it confidential. EA? I don't trust them.
Umm everyone logs ur gaming activities if ur playing online. Atleast it keeps hackers at bay and performs GUID bans. Good for the gamers. Steam has so many issues too that no one points out. I just live with it as I get what i need not what I might possibly get or get into 10 years from now. if that was the case then I'd think a lot before gaming completely.
Pfft Screw Origin and Steam its all about Impulse /s I only use Steam and Desura though I have games on my origin account I don't feel the need of ever play them. Hell I've used Onlive and Gaiki demo service more than Origin.
Rather get it on steam but I suppose I can get it on Origin
Would be better if its available on steam...oh well, its no deal breaker. tbh origin has improved a lot since launch
I had to buy a new modem so I could use origin lol everything else on the internet worked but not that since I got a new modem no problems still hold some animosity but slowly getting used to it.
