Oh wow. This isnt good. I know im not signing up to origin.

nX2639d ago

Yup, not supporting that, Uplay and Origin should be avoided like the plague. Pirates ahoy!

Origin works what do you guys have against it?

MurDocINC2639d ago

I hate EA and refuse to spend a penny on their games and services. Plus origin spys on your computer.

BattleAxe2638d ago

Origin has gotten better. I don't own many games on Origin, but I consider it a supplemental service to Steam. You can't buy Mass Effect, Battlefield and other EA games from Steam, and now Ubisoft's biggest games, so if I am to choose another service to buy these games from, it will be Origin.

Well that just makes it easier for me to avoid buying Ubisoft products,

Luckily for me I have taste in games and after about the 3'rd version of any franchise I'm bored so not buying games from Ubisoft EA and Actuvision is easy since all they make is cut and paste crap.

ha well that is an odd twist of fate. not sure what peoples issues with origin are, it's not like you have to pay for membership on it

It makes things more complicated + Origin sucks

It scans harddrives. To me it's no big deal, as I don't think it is anything more sinister than checking for EA games to add to the launcher. Games are all I have on my PC anyway, so it isn't intrusive at all. But I can see why other people are suspicious of it.

Also, the front pages of Origin give a clear indication that EA's strategy includes console-like prices for PC games. This does bother me.

jackanderson19852639d ago

don't all the launchers do that? like they search for games they can put on the launcher for easy access

hell i have Nvidia scanning my drives to find games it can optimize for me

prices yeah that's a bitch alright but you can use keys from key sites on origin aswell no bother so you come away at whatever the going rate is.

Volkama2639d ago (Edited 2639d ago )

Origin does it on some kind of schedule, invisible to the user. People saw the disc activity and blew up.

I have a few games pre-ordered from G2A for £22.50 a pop, but that doesn't change EA's £55 list price, and at the end of the day EA control the keys that these external parties are selling so they could potentially throw a wrench into that too.

I do expect EA Access to come to Origin soon, and that will make for an immense 'vault' that should get Origin a bit of communal loving.

Scanning aside , i dont mind Origin . I was never in favor of a steam hegemony and monopoly . Sure steam is awesome right now , have been for years . But an inevitable and simple change of leadership , and a benevolant giant can become a pain .

Plus people forgot the growing pains of steam , and how initially everyone complained about it . Or when everyone was up in arms when HL2 required an online activation for even the campaign , a new concept back then . So Origin wich isnt that bad can actually improves . GFWL now was awful through and through

What's strange to me is that we already had to use Uplay to launch any recent Ubisoft games, so it's not like there is that big of a difference. It just means the games don't automatically show up in your Steam library. But most of us probably have games in multiple libraries anyway.

I don't know why people want to have to launch Steam and Uplay instead of just launching Uplay. I mean, I get that people want their games in one library--I would prefer that too--but we are long since passed that being a possibility. You can still add non-Steam games to your Steam library.

Steam would be best, Origin second best. Rather anything than uPlay imo.

AuToFiRE2639d ago

Origin is still horrendous. Ubisoft shot themselves in the foot on this one.

GrIdL0cK2639d ago

Bear in mind, Steam has had 11 years of practice. Origin hasn't done badly in the space of 3 years.

infyza2639d ago

I love games and Steam and Origin. I hope they make games downloadable without the internet.

Volkama2639d ago (Edited 2639d ago )

"I hope they make games downloadable without the internet."

Do you mean playable? Cos you sure won't be downloading anything without a connection or some kind of blood magic....

infyza2639d ago

You CAN download games without internet on STEAM!

infyza2639d ago

You've never used Steam have you?

XiYakushijuAkeginuXi2639d ago (Edited 2639d ago )

Infyza are you drunk? Or am I drunk? How the hell am I going to play games on steam without downloading it.

ZeroX98762639d ago

For me installing a game and downloading a game are two different things. One includes the use of the internet (or at least some kind of network connection).
