Origin's 40% off store wide sale is now live. Get 40% off almost everything for today only. Titles include 40% off BF3, Need for Speed, Batman Arkham City and Lord of the Rings: War in the North.
Nintendo DS tag? Wii? PS3? Isn't Origin a PC digital-delivery service ala Steam, but with godawful, invasive DRM?
Actually I believe Origin sells physical copies of console games too, so this sale goes towards those also.
Don't forget the part where if you complain about a game and get banned on their forums you lose all the games you purchased for the duration of your ban.
I will never trust EA with digital content those server closing assholes. They lock you out of your games and make them useless. Real publishers let people keep their own servers up or let you play P2P EA just screws us and bricks your games forever.
US does console games also. Australia and Asia does not.
But did any of you notice that Origin is now selling BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY? This means that EA is ramping up to compete directly against Steam and other Download services. Personally, I think it's great. More stores = better for everybody. :)
They also have THQ and Capcom titles.
No, I've got no problems with Origin as a service. While I'll always love and prefer Steam, I'm not one of those anti-Origin radicals you see all over the place.
Country-based pricing, huh? Most of their games are still 50 euros ($66)... I'm not going to buy anything from there.
