Origin of Something Cool?

With 3 weeks to go, Origin is offering Battlefield 3 as a free pre-order bonus for purchasing Mass Effect 3 on Origin. But what is the rationale behind this? WHy the sudden change of heart by EA and is it really the gamble and gift of good will we think it is?

Wow, I did not see that. That's a really good deal.

Argh...already have BF3. I think it was the main reason people downloaded origin tbh lol. Can I have something else? =\

Meh... I just wish BF3 was Server side instead of being Client side, that's what pisses me off and what makes me not coming to play sometimes

It is server-side, for all intents and purposes. It uses dedicated servers, that must be licensed. Is that what you mean? I agree that it would be nice to be able to host games (or at least for others to host them) and play however you want, mods and all. But I don't think EA want it that way. So it's their servers or none at all.

Ah, crap. I bought BF3 2weeks ago (played on console before then)

I wish I had caught this smoking deal.

They did a similar thing with BF3 pre-orders for a limited time.

You could pick either DeadSpace2, MassEffect2 or MoH when you pre-ordered BF3.
I managed to use a 25% off coupon, so I ended up getting BF3, B2K expansion and DeadSpace2 all for $45 (already had the other games)

Did you even read the article before posting?

Ducky2491d ago (Edited 2491d ago )

Nope. Or rather, not thoroughly.

Why, what did I miss?

PwnerifficOne2489d ago

He said everything you said in the article >_<

Ducky2489d ago (Edited 2489d ago )

Sort of.
Article only mentioned DeadSpace2, while MassEffect2 and MoH were also available as free bonuses.

They also had discount coupons, which wasn't mentioned.
Unless if I missed it.

Anyways, too late now, since EA closed the deal early.

Problem is that Battlefield 3 wont unlock 'till after ME3 releases ... deal breaker. Almost had me there EA!
