I'm a Steam user. But I'll be interested in Origin if they have large large discounts, like the Steam sales. The prices on Origin are still much higher.
I should make it clear, I was talking about Australian prices.
Aslong as we dont see exlcusive third party titles for origin im okay with it.
I do not mind having origin but it will come down to sale price if I use it.
Also - Does Origin take you guys a long time to load? I feel like it is over 60 secs for it to come up and every upgrade has been a pain.
OK. I will buy them on Steam...
No Steam, no sale. Remember that, 3rd parties.
Don't care, these "third party" games are gonna be games from companies nobody gives a crap about. Activision/THQ and such aren't going to let EA host their games.. so it'll be all of EA's internal companies. EA, isn't going to sway me with their bullshit, they are worst than Activision now.. At least when Activision lies they do it openly.. EA lies to your face and even when you catch them in a lie they still act like you don't know. "unused accounts will be stripped of their games" wait what? "we mean they wont.." .. it says right in the terms that they will "nope" uh.. yeah.. I can screen cap it. "nope" ... really? "it's not there.. walking away now.. LA LA LA LA" But I ca.. "LA LA LA!! LA LA LA LAAAAA!!!!"
Valve > EA
What about that whole thing where Origin can spy on your computer and send data back to EA?
the prices on origin is cheap.
I have no idea why people think more competition is a bad thing. Do you guys REALLY want steam to be the only one? If they were, there would be no reason for them to do sales, since they wouldn't have to compete with other DD services. I say the more the merrier, that way, each platform will have to do big sales in order to give costumers incentives to buy from them and not someone else.
