It seems that the dreaded customer support over at origin will be now be known to console users who purchase Mass Effect 3.
Origin is an annoyance at best, but at least it's not GFWL
"It seems that the dreaded customer support over at origin will be now be known to console users who purchase Mass Effect 3" You guys do realize this will do the same thing what EA Online did for Mass Effect 2 right? It's just for accessing the daily news and uploading your character progress to Bioware Social. It's nothing more than that.
ya we know, we just like to whine about everything, and i don't like origin because it splits my game managing to two programs were on steam had everything neat and tidy but then i had to get origin for Battlefield 3 with its BRILLIANT use of a web browser launch point... lets just say this is venting
I don't get why they are complaining about the so called bad customer support that Origin/EA has... Any problems you have you can literally go onto the support sight and get a live person to text chat to to solve your issue almost instantly.
Can't we have an EA game which we plug and play without all the ea account and online passes bullshit?
Don't have to worry about EA shit origin, will be fulfilling my trilogy on my x360.
lol......i cant belive people come in this post, and just disagree with your comment?!
hit above link... read story... wait a little to sink in... possible reason for disagrees ? (it's about origin being ON 360)
oh b*tch got owned
Oh wow.... Massive fail on my part.... Soooo wait wait wait.... Sigh......
I don't want to live on this planet anymore
Missed the part where it said console? I see.
Hahaha oh great!
Im getting it on PS3. I hope i dont have to have that crap
What has origin done to warrant this kind of hatred? Its just EA's steam, and it isn't like it's making you do anything.
The main thing about Origin people hate is that it's a glorified TROJAN. EA can and does explore your hard drive to see what you have installed on your computer. It's borderline invasion of privacy.
I like the way you call it trojan, because that is exactly what it feels like. EA also used to have in their terms of service the ability to delete your games if you are inactive on Origin for more than two years. In short, Origin isn't consumer friendly and neither is EA.
I don't think people are reading the article properly: It states that there is Origin integration on Mass Effect 3 on the Xbox 360, which means it will also be included in the PS3 version and PC gamers will be forced to open that crappy program just to play Mass Effect 3.
No PC gamers wont be forced to open the program to play Mass Effect 3. Even when you buy a game legitimately you can download a crack to bypass it.
Is the crack legal or is it illegaly bypassing copyright? Lol. No cracks are legal.
It doesnt matter if you download the crack once you legally bought the game. Any game that forces me to log in online to play the game I will download a crack to bypass it. I will not be forced to go online to play a game.
is origin really that bad?
just annoying for longtime steam users(like me) i think
It's funny watching the author make a big deal of this, but Origin is just a rebranding of the same old EA account login people have used with their games for years. Hell, Godfather II for PS3 had this feature.
