In a thinly veiled attempt at targeting Steam users, EA’s Origin service is promoting a player appreciation sale on games that invites you to forget about your backlog and instead buy some games that “you’ll actually play”.

Oh? They get origin in a functional state again? Its been broken so many times I just stopped checking it.

pandehz1328d ago

Broken since?

Been using it for a long time.

Ive never had any luck running origin as with many others. For example, the origin store at this moment isn't working for me. I got a loading symbol for a couple minutes then got spit out because origin is unavailable. But i will give it credit, i did successfully launch deadspace 3.

As much as I hate EA's approach in Origin, with their retarded pricing just being a flat out insult (much like the PSN's prices, what a joke, but dumb console peasants still use it for some god forsaken reason, and then have the audacity to say PC gaming is more expensive), I have to confess I've been genuinely impressed with Origin.

I have never had an issue with it. It doesn't cause problems, it runs just as well and fast as Steam. I get just as fast download speeds as I do on Steam.

Steam beats it every time with content and most importantly prices. Steam is more community and socially driven as well, and actually has indie devs release games too.

Origin has a long, long way to go, and if they don't slash their prices by £20 as a minimum for each game on release, they'll never be good.

Sorry, Origin, but these prices are simply not good enough, especially with the Steam Summer Sale on the way.

Why buy origin when there's not even an option to back up you're games. Such joke cause I love re downloading bf4 everytime I had to reinstall my os /s
