What EA will lose if BF3 stays off Steam - Page 15  

post #141 of 174
Yea too bad on BF2 you had to shoot someone point blank with a whole 30 round clip for them to just turn around and shoot you dead as you reload lol i dont play BF2 because its very unrealistic. I dont have much faith BF3 or EA will fix anything so I wont play it anyway I could care less and I hope it fails miserably so we can get some good games made.

What is wrong with Origin? If you knew anything about it, you would not have made this post. When you install a game from Origin, you do not need to have Origin running to run the game and it is not in any way tied to Origin. It basically installs a copy just as you would get from installing from the DVD.

People complaining about this make me lol.

EA will lose customers no doubt, but is the number going to be big enough for them to care? Probably not. Honestly, I will probably purchase this game through origin, but i'm definitely not paying $60 for it, i'll wait to get it as cheap as possible. Not because the content is bad, but because EA deserves as little of my money as possible.

It's almost as if the people on here who claim that they "are not buying BF3" think that EA actually reads this forum or cares that they're losing very few sales due to this decision. "Boycotters": you will likely eventually get this game, in some fashion, whether its from Origin or another platform. So basically, you are impressing no one. This truly is getting ridiculous now. And people wonder why PC gaming is dead -- because every PC gamer thinks that they are entitled to something. Get over yourselves. It really isn't a big deal that ALL YOUR GAMES ARE ON STEAM. Some of you really should re-read your posts and see how childish they sound. But it is cute that you can take a moral stand on something so insignificant as what download service you have to use to purchase a video game. One can only hope you are as strong in your convictions when it comes to real world issues as well.

That is ludicrous, it won't matter. If the price and content is right ppl will buy it and they won't care about Steam.

You also failed when you equated driving 30 miles to play a guitar, to clicking an icon labelled "Origin" instead of "Steam". Clicking a different Icon is the equivalent of driving an extra 30 miles to get to the same game for you? I can see why it would be a problem then lol.

I can see what you were trying to do, but it didn't really work.

Also, I bought Battlefield 2142 on Origin FOUR YEARS AGO.

The difference between now and then? Origin was called "EA Downloader" and there was no friends list.
Well, you're not just across the street because your friends aren't close. I'd say 30 miles is enough to create an illusion of a completely different area, not the space between the icons on your desktop.

You can't say "I can see what you were trying to do" and follow that up with "but it didn't really work." That's all I was trying to emphasize. They are two completely different, unconnected, unconnectable systems which will never work together, which is useless to people who build their steam library.

All EA are doing is limiting their customers, if they actually expect this to make serious money then all they are doing is limiting that, not saying it won't because the majority of the sales, as usual, will be console based.

EADL was terrible, I posted a deal a long time ago on how to get a game for free due to several bugs in the system working together, and also codes and such. I have games on it, I mean don't call me a hypocrite because I don't play them, but I have used it and I know what it's like.

You can defend it if you want. I could care less, just trying to shine the light on it.

If I didn't have to use Steam to play CS 1.6, I would have never even heard of it. What is the difference between what Valve does and what you Origin haters claim EA is doing?

You have to understand the difference here.
Sounds like origins to me, once you use the game to DL or update you can turn it off, origins is not integrated within the game itself either. People really need to actually try origins for themselves instead of relying on some fanboy's BS, because until you do you do not have a clue what your talking about.
