So will "exclusively on Origin" end up true?
You can still get it on other Digital download services such as D2D, so why Steam?
Fuck and I was about to buy it.
Will buy any 'origin' exclusives on discs, not supporting that bullshit.
i'd hate it if i'm forced to use ea origins instead of steam whenever i want to play crysis 2
Ah Fuck I can see where this is going.
So will I be able to play crysis 2 on steam still? Because if it's forcing me to move my service over to origin to play a game I've purchased then I'm asking for a refund
I think I'll remove Battlefield 3 from my list of "Games to buy".
Pretty much confirms that Battlefield 3 will not be on Steam.
EA isn't too bright.
I still have it in my Steam library :smugdog:
u mad EA?
If you already have the game on steam you won't need origin to run the game, origin is just the renewed EA download manager, you don't need it to be running to run the game, it's just a platform to buy games from.
Even if you buy BF3 on Origin, you won't need the program running to run the game.
if steam fails, then maybe valve will start making games instead of hats
Origin better not be shit like every other non-Steam distribution service. The least they could do is make it a decent app.
Meh, if they make their stuff exclusive to their crappy "Origin" store they won't get a sale out of me. I only buy stuff on Steam because thats where my library is by now, and it has proven to be the best.
Enjoy not getting my money then.
Bad Company 2 and Medal of Honor are probably next.
What is this? The game is still on Steam, and I actually just recently bought it.Cs-Nation. posted:
Boycotting if Battlefield 3 is on Origin
Let me assume something, many people will not get BF3 on PC because EA has their own digital download system leading to bad PC sales. Meanwhile PS3 and 360 sales will be unaffected then they will pull out of the PC market due to them digging their own grave.
For me buying games, chances are it's either going to be a boxed copy or from Steam and that's pretty much it. I'll make an exception and buy something from Direct2Drive if it's ridiculously cheap though, I've got nothing against it. Basically I can't be dealing with making another account and having my games split into even more download services, I can't even remember what I've bought from D2D, let alone some other places I've definitely got accounts so I definitely don't want to have to sign up to Origin.
I mean, I've got accounts with something like Green Man Gaming or whatever the hell it's called and there's definitely at least one game on there. I can't remember the account details off the top of my head though so that's an issue right off the bat.
Call me simple but I don't want to make yet another account to play or buy my games.
can steam and origin users still join the same servers?
Uh guys. I don't see the point. You're all acting exactly as how people acting how steam came out. At least EA is covering EADM's tracks and trying to start over. I'd at least give it a trial and see how it turns out before being all like "waaah I don't want to download extra crap to play games" even though you already did it with steam and you aren't even bothering.
I'm still getting Battlefield 3. Why? Because Origin isn't going to change my gameplay experience at all. Their servers are crap, but we've had to use them since Battlefield 1942.
Why should I go to the effort of getting an account with EA and then have some Origin exclusive games on that?
That's really unorganised and it'd be much better if it was all in one library where I can access all of them from one program?
Oh and it's faster because nobody's using it.
Not buying BF3 if forced to use Origin.
Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck. I was afraid they would do this ever since they said Old Republic would be an exclusive.
and so it begins...
This is just a hunch, but maybe Crytek had it pulled. Why pull Crysis 2 and nothing else? It just doesn't make sense.
