EA writes on twitter: "This is your ONE WEEK warning to E3, new trailer incoming!"
Unfortunately, the hype for this game died the moment they said "Always Online" EA are really dumb.
I couldnt agree more!!
How could they be this stupid? Their reason for doing so is the stupidest corporate crap I've ever heard: "NFS will require an online connection for single player.This lets us push the boundaries of the experience we can deliver to you." https://twitter.com/Needfor...
Rivals was garbage. This is a reboot. The internet is good. Clean slate, IMO. Hype fully intact here.
What if i don't use the internet on my console? :/ What if i traveled far from my home? What is the problem from making the game offline? Who makes this [email protected] decisions? Why should they control whether i want to play online or offline? WTF!
Its like "THEY" wamt to know everything you do with this game.. This idea is just as stupid when sex shop salesmen decide to put camera on every toy to make sure they get in the right place.. you know what I mean.. really stupid and consumer unfriendly idea! Have a nice day EA!
When Rival first full video footage release on youtube came out 2013 my thought was : this is PURE!!! garbage . but you guys gave me 10 disagrees. now everyone finally realizing Rival is garbage .
same here bro, same here! Damnit!!!
Not to start an argument, but a racing game without being online is pretty much useless to me, especially for how much fun I had with burnout paradise, but I guess that depends on you're social interaction or something else being a problem. There could be many things wrong with this game, but "always online" isn't one of them.
Don't you have an internet connection?(like the one you're on right now?) The game can still be enjoyed solo if I'm not mistaken. I'm disagreeing with the first comment so I'll likely get disagreed to death. Bring it on creepers.
Yeah I am quite disappointed with the whole DRM crap, what were you thinking EA
Why is everyone complaining about the always online. I mean aren't almost everyone online when they play anyway. I just don't understand.
"Why is everyone complaining about..." *fill in the blank* ... "I just don't understand." me neither, bud.... and I dont want to. lol. @cider lots of people dont have TVs. What about them? And if you're so dependent on playing a game 24/7, online games might not be for you? these all seem like grasping at straws non-arguments "me me me!" BS.
@dancer Ok, can you enlighten me about the benefits of NFS being always online? How long will EA keep those servers running before your copy of the game becomes a coaster. If you can tell me some worth to always online, then I will back you. But at the end of the day we're dealing with EA...
Yes, consumers decided things like 24 hour DRM check-ins, always online, and limited game reselling weren't for them. That is why MS had to do so many 180s on their initial anti-consumer policies. All you are doing is trolling and flaming people who made a sane pro-consumer choice not to buy into such a system.
@ cider771 Sorry didn't mean the down vote. But yes I see your point now. Maybe it could bring bad things. We just gotta wait and see
Yes, but what happens when you internet goes down, your stuck with a game you can't play. Not to mention there's still a lot of people who don't have an Internet service or a crappy one at best. Also you truly don't own the game if it requires an internet connection. Nor could you trade it in.
stop worrying about little things that most likely won't happen. Also you would be able to trade it in, why wouldn't you? You can do some pretty cool stuff with things that require always online (Microsofts original vision for Xbox one), but I guess we'll never see it because of people like you who whine.
@tdawg6 I don't mind some games that are always online. PC does it and that's fine, however I don't want to see it on my consoles. Why? Those cool things that can be done with always online, will become less about that and more about DRM. Let's look at DLC... In the beginning when dlc started coming about, developers talked about the potential that dlc could bring, more levels... More characters... More whatever... And for the most part that has happened, however.... Most company's have taken avantage of this with most people buying dlc that's already on the game disc, other company's saying they developed dlc separately, but it's available day one... I could go on... But my point is we are talking about an always online game by EA... A company who has been trying to implement DRM in consoles for sometime now. So is that always online just about adding cool new stuff... Doubt it, there's motive behind it. Now is it fair for me to bash this game before any info is available... Not its not. Am I pulling at strings... Maybe so, I could shut up and just not buy the game. But remember this is EA, they didn't win best company two years in a row for nothing(sarcasm).
I know right! What's wrong with games that won't work when the servers down, or bans you for modding, lengthy updates when you just want to play for 20 minutes, 9 year olds, trolls and people who think the n word is a complete language
People complaining for nothing, on pc then yeah there's a bit of an argument for DRM but on console there's very little against online. Only arguments is either "but what if game servers are down" seriously how often is that? Or "my internet might break and I am not able to play" again how often does that happen? The arguments against it here make it sound like the Internet is hanging on by the skin of its teeth and could go under at any second forever, it's like how cavemen were scared of night time cause they never knew if the sun was coming back. Retardation
Consumers vastly rejected Xbox's 24-hour DRM check-ins and limited game reselling with very good reasons for doing so. You respond by insulting and fanboy flaming, very sad.
Oh EA! In your greedy quest to have the next big franchise... You always shoot yourself in the foot. Because Always online worked so well with Microsoft, you continue to want to give it a shot... And how many more Need for speeds before you realize this franchise is mediocre at best. Hey, I know... How about a new burnout... What's that, most of those developers for that franchise have left... Thanks EA...
Seemed to work for Blizzard and World of Warcraft.... among the other hundreds if not thousands of perfectly viable, fun, and well respected always online games. But yeah, no, go ahead and complain. You are well within reason.
WoW is an mmo...... This nfs game is not.
oh yea sure WOW is a single player arcade racing game for sure. Diablo 3 is a single player puzzle adventure. Heroes of the Storm is a single player fps
They lost me when they said that it'll be always online. Not even the full trailer will get me interested...
They must be bricking it now given the huge scale backlash on their social media. Is it too late to undo something as deal-breaking as this? I just worry that they'll be able to pull the wool over the eyes of the wider market (those who buy without glancing on games sites etc.), and that annoys me a bit. Such a shame, this really had potential.
EAs Need for Greed is back and more realistic then ever before simulated actually having to pay for speeding tictics and filling up gas to be short on change and having to break into the ten you where saving for lunch, Witness the life like speeding camera that monitor exactly what you are doing at all time and making sure your car is insured to drive. Preorder now and get the f*ck you pay me pack completely free of charge. Small print:Online connectivity required EA reserves the rights to delete your game from existence the moment the next title is on store shelves, You must have an origin account to use our games and if origin is offline then so is your chances of playing.
I only hear people cry. Just wait for the E3 then the whole game will be reveiled. Mabye then they say there is a offline mode.
Geez its nfs.....its total garbage anyway...imo of course.
Not all NFS' are garbage imo, it's mostly just the more recent EA ones. The Need for Speed from a few years ago was cool because it was open world and had some cool elements from Burnout (mainly because the studio that built Burnout Paradise is being forced to make Need for Speed games instead because EA doesn't have their priorities straight. Everyone loved Burnout, it is still one of the highest rated franchises of all time. Instead, EA is blue balling all the arcade racing fans.
Just don't buy the game, simple as that. This game was a day one grab for me but ever since they announced "always online" I'm going to wait to see if they change it and I believe that many will do the same also.
My advice: Drops nfs and go play Forza, GT, Driveclub, project Cars
Well that's horrible advice since NFS doesn't play anything like the racing games you mentioned. Not to mention none of them have the same amount of customization.
hmm, doesn't play like them? R2 to accelerate? L2 to drift/brake? Square for e-brake? lol you know I'm jus' playin' I know what you meant. But seriously they do play at least a little like one another. :P
I don't get it. I've just never had a problem with online only games. People can make all the excuses and possible scenarios they want. If the game is good, it doesn't matter to me whether its online only or offline only. I'm playing it.
crider771 kind of nailed it earlier in this post. "How long will EA keep those servers running before your copy of the game becomes a coaster...at the end of the day we're dealing with EA..." Now, I'm not saying you shouldn't play it. Personally I just think one should rent it or buy it used as to not encourage this kind of bs. If there is an offline mode, I will change my mind. Good day.
People asking questions dumber than John Snow -_-
if you dont have internet and have an xbox one or ps4 then you have your priorities way out of order.
Some people actually like living and/or gaming off the grid
EA announce something people have been waiting for, for a very long time yet they still manage to fuck it up.
Give me Burnout Paradise 2 or give me nothing, Criterion.
A little disappointed in it being always online, but thats not enough to get me off the hype train. Still hoping this goes back to a Need For Speed Underground type of gameplay.
People are dumb because 2k15 is always online for my career and nobody is complaining. quit the crying 😢
