??? i am no more gold and i still can play any gold game gift that i have... it's the same as in xb360
I can only see this being worth it if you want to subscribe for just a month or two to play through their vault catalog and then be done with it.
Dunno about this..the first step for putting on a monthly fee for even using origin at all in the future ?
Everyone knew the day M$ introduced monthly payments for playing anything online it would eventually infect its way to PCs in a similar form.
Steam isn't any better.... All 3 do some sort of data mining. It's just a matter of which you prefer to have collecting data on you.
to be fair, steam is arguably a bit better. its a very robust platform designed to trick you into forgetting its DRM at least theyre transparent about hardware surveys & statistics they collect, haha. im not saying i like it much, but origin & uplay especially are a pale shade in comparison...
honestly this was in the back of my mind as well
I didn't talk about the spying, as it is present everywhere, of course there's not a client (besides probably galaxy, don't know) that doesn't do it.
Yet steam to me has by far the most appealing program, the best web store, the best management of your installations, the market, best sales promotions, in home streaming. I like how you have more options to set. None of the other clients for me reaches the level steam has simply by way longer experience.
Not worth it... idont think people play anything else than FIFA from this... BF series dead...or mostly people already have it. Why pay for something if you willing to play 1game only...
After a cursory glance at the initial titles, this smells like "How can we milk more out of these old games that no longer sell?"
i prefer steam seeing i hate EA with passion, Only thing on that list i care for is DA series and well i honestly i still pissed about EA pull DA:2 from steam and making DA:I EA client only.
Am i really only person that thinks they would sell more of there games if they did it threw steam, which much more excepted in this day in age.
Origin is a better piece of software than Steam, Steam has evolved (bloated) into something more than i need from DD software.
I do like having everything in one place, but i also realise that is a silly ocd like thing.
This would be a great idea if the selection was abit bigger and was getting updated all the time, as previously mentioned it's hard to see why anyone would keep this on after a few months.
It could be a much better service in a few years.
If it was the Steam catalogue it would be really good, but the monthly price would likely be alot more than $5 a month and alot of games/publishers would opt out of the service.
Agreed, hence why I use Outcome:
Steam is way better man they release new tech they are developing on Linux not much to say about ea other then they ripped some awesome game developers off for there titles since the 90s. They sell **** games on android and try to use the cash shop garbage. Moreover, I'll sign up for origins when they put UO on the list and drop the price to $2. See you scrubs in ffelucca;I'll be on a llama foo trying to gank and steal your powerscrolls.
EA's catalog must be valuable, you know, since they put it in a vault... uke2:
I've already played all the EA games I want. BFs, Mass Effects, Dead Spaces, Sim City circa 1998, Desert Strike on the SNES, and that's pretty much all I care about EA games.
