[thegx] EA Will Delete Origin Games after 24 Months of Inactivity - Page 4  

post #31 of 64
You guys didn't know about this already? It's in the TOS. On caps and bolded too. One of the main reasons i don't like the Origin idea... But thinking about it... 2 years without playing a game makes it sort of... Nevermind i've spent more than 2 years without playing CS and then suddenly played for 6 months.

Does delete = revoke license?

you people......

If you go past the inactive mark they dont remove your right to play the game, they remove it from your list.

You can simply re-add it with your key...

if I go buy a physical copy of magic mountain off of amazon and load it into my win 98 computer, I can still play it.

I have a physical of Crysis 1 that no longer works because Ive "reached the install limit" even though Ive only ever installed it on one computer. So no, not all physical copies are "yours" forever. rolleyes.gif

developer and game specific DRM don't apply to physical copies of games as a whole, sorry. Last I checked my copy of magic mountain doesn't have DRM, neither do my PS1 games. Neither do my NES games.

I just found another hidden policy:

"If you do not purchase and install our Origin, NAW, we will not release Battlefield 3".

Before I go jumping on the EA-hate bandwagon:

EA doesn't go around putting these sorts of clauses in place to make people hate them, so I'm sure they have a reason. Any guesses?

Who cares? origin is just a remask of ea download manager.

I've said this a million times, I'll say it again:

You don't even need origin running to play your games

please, go try that with steam.

edit: and shame on EA for putting their game on their service. Tell me what other digital platform I can play counter strike/TF2/half life/L4D/L4D2 on again?
