    I hope this doesn't mean they are killing Origin

    Thanks Hilbert for posting this article. I personally hope this will happen; it should help me to consolidate some drive space.
     
  3. This, is something I am surprisingly indifferent towards. Probably since EA is fickle.

    Even if so... they will transfer licence to GOG (wich work already with them) and Steam... so you don't have to stress :)

    The main problem with EA is not that they buy studio, every company do the same, it is not that they fire some people (i mean "thank for everything, really...") as again, it is normal when you merge a studio with a big company...
    The main issue is that they change the creativity of the studio to their own vision, so the main creatives go to see if the grass is more green in another company and EA have plenty of studio that do the same thing (exemple: Dice that is dead for me).
    They have changed that point recentely, and so right now you can't see the result...
    And when you see in 2019 they ask in a survey if you would play at BF Heroes if they remade the game... you know that they are searching at what point they get wrong.
    It is good to learn from fail.

    Blame marketing. Marketing is a female dominated industry, with approximately 84% of people working in marketing being female.

    This means: 84% of advertising that has women in the photograph like this one

    were actually endorsed and decided by this individual... and others like her.

    Which in-turn, makes these individuals, look pretty stoopid :)

    I had to get that out there guys, because I have to sit through this junk every day, with people making insane claims for the rights of women, when, it was actually women who made the decisions to begin with!

    Just...lol

    Yup, it's confirmed. I must say, I'm very positively surprised by this. First Bethesda, and now EA (who are ofc waaay bigger) making the move back, this will surely piss off "somebody".

    As a consumer, I'm glad to have the option again, as sadly, Origin has stagnated a lot, even though it launched so long ago, it still lacks in many departments.

    And this is precisely why Steam is so good, they mastered and kept on improving their platform to a point where it's VERY hard to get even close to it. I doubt Origin will go away, but I also think that with this move, EA will likely keep it the way it is (aka they won't make many improvements) and invest their money in other places (like actually good games, for a change, hopefully).

    Did you miss the part where you still need Origin to play it? This is more of a PR move than anything else.

    Did you miss the part where I said "because it's better on Steam" ??

    Seriously...I prefer to manage my games from Steam. Installation, forums, guides and so on.

    I hope the ones who said they won't buy another game from EA, will stay true to their word and not cave to temptation.

    I won’t buy multiplayer games from EA or any company.

    A good single player game is another story.

    This is exactly what I was hoping for; I can cancel my pre-order of Jedi Fallen Order on Origin and get the game on Steam...I'm quite pleased with this. The drive I dedicate to Origin is fairly small, but my Steam game drive is satisfactorily large.
