    Yeah I too think it's more a marketing gag than anything else. I honestly couldn't be bothered, since as long as games require origin, I'll just buy them on origin anyway (or keys for the platform), same with uplay. GTA6 will be another one of those points when we'll maybe have to take such a decision.

    And... you are very welcome my friend :)

    Best solution would be that the publisher launchers (like Origin, Uplay and so on) would only require a link to the platform where the game is played (no matter if it's Steam, GoG or EGS) and therefore rendering the publisher launcher unnecessary for playing the game.

    :)

    Absolutely true. Then again, they could have saved themselves the money they put into the game launchers in the first place, since they actually only wanted to undercut steam tax (fares). Or at least that's the most logical reason I came up with in regards to their idea to make their own launcher (which, at least as far as I'm aware, always had their own storefront too) in the first place.

    Game is #1 in top selling. That's why EA did it and kept the Origin launcher. Because people are stupid.

    Easy, this is the first game that may have a character to it. Battlefronts were pretty-looking, but ultimately soulless.

    First, we already discussed, and many people here on the forums see SP games all but dead. Second, isn't half of the console games released until today still more or less a SP title? Shooters aside?

    And we shall see how much money they make off this SP title. You might be right, but the IP does definitely help sell initial games, I'd say.

    Yeah, saying "single player games are dead" is laughable when MP only titles are a tiny number, and most people only go to MP after finishing the single player.

    Last month EA was pimping CyberSecurity Month and if you enabled the Authenticator to your login, you got a free month of Origin Basic Access. I just got mine activated, which includes a 10% discount on buying games. So I used the discount to pre-order Fallen Jedi. :) Covers the cost of tax.

    Also, you can get the Deluxe Edition with preorder stuff if you subscribe to their Premier Access. @ $99/yr upfront or $15/mo ($180/yr)

    Thought I'd share some buying options.

    I don't know why anyone listens to this Cerebus23 guy. He's clearly a young edge lord on these forums.

    So GMG still doesn't have a preorder... anybody bought a key so far, or did you guys preorder on Steam / Origin? Or wait for release and buy it then?

    They most likely are being instructed by EA not to sell it until a certain point, either close to release day or after.

    Oh man! Just 4 more days until Friday ! Cannot wait to play another, hopefully, amazing single player experience! :D

    I am enjoying RDR2 on PC atm, but haven’t played this on my pro ob release date, it does not that attractive now. I will finish it again, no doubt, just before Cyberpunk drops next year :)

    There's a review embargo until the day of release. And EA knows why. ;)

    Why my friend? you think they're hiding something, or the game is going to be bad?

    Respawn hasn't soured their reputation yet, I will give them the benefit of the doubt.

    They are the talent that created the CoD franchise before it became the most milked product of all time.

    I don't trust EA. They announced to investors that they will introduce more microtransactions into all games.

    Black cloak for your Jedi? 3.99$
    Crimson lightsaber? 9.99$

    Wanna bet? ;)
