[GameSpot] Origin surpasses 5 million daily users - Page 4

post #31 of 147
In the almost 9 years Steam has been around there have been no reports of Steam ever collecting program data outside of the Steam folder. I've also looked at the resource monitor numerous times and have never seen Steam access anything outside of any Steam zone. Origin was caught doing this, EA said that they would stop doing it, and they still do it to this day.

It's no surprise that Origin does this and Steam does not. EA has proven themselves to be one of the most untrustworthy game publishers time and time again. They will continue to put their shareholders' interests in front of any customer interests. If this means employing an intrusive client that accesses your information for more profit, so be it.

I don't get why people deny it though. Steam and origin both collect the same types of data and use it in the same way. Your saying steam only collects hardware data, but valve themselves say they collect others. And they do it for marketing purposes. Both companies can also share your personal information with their affiliates.

Both companies privacy policies are pretty much identical. If Origin was doing all this shady stuff everyone keeps saying it would be against their privacy policy and there would be one giant class action lawsuit.

Edit: Regardless of the above issues if origin does not get good third party support I cannot see it moving forward much. Of course the blockbusters will sell but will it be enough....I don't think so.

Origin is missing a lot of the features Steam currently has. For example I would love to take further advantage of this current ORIGIN60 sale and send a few games to friends and family but currently there is no 'Gifting'. Working around this limitation is a pain. I guess EA doesn't want my money after all.

lol.

Origin is what, three/four months old? Are you expecting it to be doing everything that Steam does in that time frame?

Ever since it was released, they have been adding features non-stop.

Give it a chance tbh.

Origin is definitely lacking in some features. And I hope they improve or I dont see it sticking around. But saying they don't want your money cause they don't have a system in place yet. I'm sure its something on the table but getting the platform out for those to buy their own games is the priority. They really need to fix the friend finder too. It works pretty terribly.

I love how they make a game that everyone wants to play, then FORCE everyone to use origin. They take away our choice and then basically they're mocking us by coming back and telling us how much everyone loves their product. I'm not stupid, EA. I HATE origin and I hate you for making me use it. Every single user is reluctantly installing this to get to BF3 imo.

I love steam I've had it on my old pentium D computer and played HL2 and CSS on it. It is the easiest, most simple game selling device I have ever used. For example I installed steam on my hdd. My games get installed on my hdd. I install origin on my hdd. Bf3 beta is on my ssd ***.

Do you think people weren't saying the same thing when they installed Half Life 2/CS? I certainly did. I didn't like Steam until I had a collection of games and friends on it.

Same here. I had Orgin before I had pre-ordered BF3, so makes no difference to me. They will eventually add in 3rd party titles and I'm sure more features. I think once everyone has BF3 on it and a good collection of friends added, they won't mind it as much. It's just that first hurdle of getting friends added because everyone already has alot added in Steam already.
