    meeh.
    F1 (and games) died when they decided to put sub 8 cyl in them,
    and uplay/origin apps are already bad enough, so i wont "add" whatever equivalent EA is running.

    I'm pretty sure EA can help Codemasters to create proper multiplayer titles with vast amount of players and a Need For Speed title with proper physics, driving model, etc. I think Codemasters has wanted to create something bigger and really utilize the online component more, but even their Racenet system which just keeps track of record times and such has been clunky. This is really an opportunity to create greater racing games and have funds to support good games longer like Dirt Rally 2.0. I just hope they don't fail with their first game under EA to avoid any cuts or layoffs.

    Overall I'm tad optimistic about this move. My only real concern is that they will produce more casual games now like the Dirt base series, but let's hope for the opposite.

    This the worst.
    I have Origin for my Son and all the Fifa stuff, but I really have no love for EA.

    EA has no damn clue what proper phsyics are. They cant even make a proper madden to beat a 15 year old NFL 2k5. Need for speed, even in its serious titles that were not pure arcade had trash phsyics.
    CM is dead. And you are a fool to think EA wont EFFF this up either.

    You guys still have Dovetail Games who fleece people with thousands of dollars worth of broken and buggy DLC for both of their train simulators

    since they put a stop to modding the f1games we had to suffer boring f1 games that have little realism.
